from failure than you do from success,

  • MOBILE, Ala. Montravius Adams Jersey . - Inbee Park is back defending her No. 1 ranking, instead of watching others try to take it away from her. Second-ranked Stacy Lewis couldnt take advantage of Parks absence last week at the Kingsmill Championship in Virginia, but theyll be competing head to head again at the Airbus LPGA Classic starting Thursday on The Crossings course at Magnolia Grove thats part of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. She watched Adam Scott wrest the PGA Tours top ranking from Tiger Woods on Monday without competing that week. "It would be nice to get it the way Adam Scott did, but I want to win tournaments at the end of the day," Lewis said Wednesday. "Being No. 1 in the world is definitely a goal but you cant think about it all the time. "If its something Im thinking about trying to make a birdie putt, its just not going to happen, so I just have to keep doing what I know is right. Even if I do get to No. 1, the goals dont change. Its still, give myself a chance to win on Sunday and let everything else take care of itself." Lewis has a successful track record in Alabama, winning the states tournaments in Mobile and Prattville in 2012. She wasnt able to pass Park, who missed last weeks tournament while sick. Park has been No. 1 for more than a year. "I wasnt really feeling well for the last couple weeks I played ... so the next week I probably took three or four days off trying to get healthier and get the bad things out of my system," the South Korean said. "The next week I try to practice a little bit more and work on my game because I didnt really have that big of a gap or a break when the season started, so I didnt really have time to work on my game as much as I would like to. "I feel like Im back in a healthy condition, thats the important thing." Park is winless in eight starts this year. Lewis has eight top-10 finishes and won the North Texas LPGA Shootout. She expects low scores from the contenders this week. "Its just the way the greens are set up," Lewis said. "Theyre set up to make birdies, theyre set up to kind of funnel some shots in and get them close. Its fun for the fans, its fun for us to play, and being a good ball striker is where you want to be." For Jennifer Johnson, the return to Mobile has rekindled memories of her first LPGA Tour win last May. She finished with back to back 7-under 65 rounds and set a tournament-record with a 21-under 267 total. Johnson birdied four of the final six holes for a one-stroke victory over Jessica Korda and Pornanong Phatlum. She said being the defending champion could bring "a little pressure." "Maybe just trying to shoot the same thing I did last year because Im always trying to do better than I did the year before," Johnson said. "But I think the pressure really just you put it on yourself." Clay Matthews Jersey .com) - Nathan MacKinnon scored the winning goal in the shootout as the Colorado Avalanche rallied for a 3-2 win over the Boston Bruins on Wednesday. Bart Starr Jersey . Wiggins, who had been seen as a contender for a podium finish in Paris, was one of about 20 riders caught near the back of the peloton with 38 kilometres to go in the 218-km flat stage from Le Mans to Chateauroux.Michael Saunders used to daydream about playing for the Toronto Blue Jays.It wont be long before he gets to do it in real life.A day after Toronto acquired the Canadian outfielder in a deal with the Seattle Mariners, Saunders spoke about getting the opportunity to ply his trade on home soil.I think it was more of a storybook ending for me if you would, like One day it would be really cool if I was able to wear a Blue Jays uniform, Saunders said on a conference call Thursday. Theres 30 teams and the chances are slim that that would actually happen.Im honoured to be able to wear a Blue Jay uniform and Im very proud of that.The Victoria native, who spent 10 years with the Seattle organization, played for Canada at the World Baseball Classic in 2013 and said he understands the burden that comes with playing north of the border.Im a proud Canadian, said the 28-year-old, who cheered for the Blue Jays and Mariners growing up. If I was to get traded to a team I couldnt pick a better one than Toronto.Im extremely excited to play for the Blue Jays, but its not just about representing the Blue Jays, its about representing my country.Saunders, who was acquired for left-hander J.A. Happ, said he was at his daughters swimming lesson when he found out about the trade from Seattle general manager Jack Zduriencik.I was sitting there watching my daughter swim when I got the call, said Saunders. Last night was kind of a blur for me. There were so many mixed emotions. This is my first time going through a situation like this.Its expected Saunders will take over in left field for Melky Cabrera, who declined the Blue Jays US$15.3-million qualifying offer last month and is a free agent.An 11th round pick of Seattle back in 2004, Saunders said he spoke with both Toronto GM Alex Anthopoulos and manager John Gibbons soon after the deal was struck.I definitely got the feeling that I was wanted, said Saunders. Theyre just going to go out and let me play. I know that theres some talented outfielders in the organization and thats not to say Alex is finished making moves.But Im going to do everything I can to hold down the everyday left field job.Saunders hit .273 with eight home runs and 34 RBIs in 78 games last season while battling joint inflammation in his right shoulder and a strained left oblique.If you play the game hard sometimes you put yourself at risk to injure yourself by trying to make the play, he said. You do that for the team. Davante Adams Jersey. Youre playing for the team at that point, and the fans.While hes happy to be joining Toronto, Saunders doesnt leave Seattle on the best terms after Zduriencik criticized his ability to stay healthy for 162 games following the 2014 campaign.The comments came as a surprise. Im not going to lie to you, said Saunders. Im very confident in what I do in the off-season to prepare my body. I think the comments might have come out of frustration more than anything due to the fact we were one game away from going to the playoffs.Jack and I have had numerous conversations since then and there have been no hard feelings, but as far as calling my conditioning into question, (its) something I think is uncalled for. I work just as hard as anybody.In parts of six seasons, Saunders has a .231 average with 51 home runs, 182 RBIs and 54 stolen bases in 553 games, only becoming an everyday player at pitcher-friendly Safeco Field in 2012.I really think you learn more from failure than you do from success, he said. I know what I bring to the table and I try to continually get better at that. I just try to bring an all around game and do whatever I can to help the team win.Saunders has played well at Rogers Centre — a stadium known for its home runs — but he said joining Torontos potent lineup that includes Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion, Jose Reyes and newly acquired Josh Donaldson and Russell Martin is what excites him the most.You have multiple all-stars, you have MVP finalists and guys that really know how to hit, he said. Theres certain people in the game that strike fear in you when youre on the opposing team, and theres a couple different guys in that lineup that do that.I think the first thing you see when you think of the Blue Jays is the power thats there. Theres no question theres a ton of power in the lineup, but not only that, theres professional hitters from 1 to 9.Saunders said he would always check the schedule to see when Seattle was coming to Toronto and added that his wife, Jessica, is also pleased about the move.I love the city, my wife loves the city. It was funny, when we first met we were discussing where to raise the kids and she said Absolutely not in Canada. Were raising them in the U.S., said Saunders. Then she came to visit me when we were on the road and she said OK, Ill let you raise the kids in one spot in Canada and thats Toronto. Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Nike Baseball Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From ChinaWholesale Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Authentic Cheap NHL Jerseys Canada Cheap Nike MLB JerseysCheap Soccer Jerseys China NCAA Jerseys Cheap Nike NHL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Football Jerseys Store Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Jerseys NCAA China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys ' ' '
