NAPLES, Fla. Custom Dallas Mavericks Jerseys . -- Shanshan Feng was right back on top of an LPGA Tour leaderboard Thursday, shooting a 6-under 66 to take a one-shot lead over So Yeon Ryu and Charley Hull after the first round of the CME Group Tour Championship.Coming off consecutive victories in Malaysia and Japan, Feng is one of nine players who entered the season finale with a chance to win the Race to the CME Globe season title and $1 million bonus. The Chinese star won in 2013 at Tiburon Golf Club.Somehow, the course is playing longer compared to three years ago, Feng said. I dont know, maybe because Im getting older Im hitting shorter.Ha Na Jang, Sei Young Kim, In Gee Chun, Amy Yang, Lizette Salas, Beatriz Recari, Ryann OToole and Mo Martin all shot 68.Top-ranked Lydia Ko had a 70. She needs a win this week to secure player of the year honors,Ariya Jutanugarn and Brooke Henderson, who like Ko are guaranteed the points crown if they prevail this week, each shot 72.Feng has finished no worse than a tie for fourth in her last seven events. She started the run with the Olympic bronze medal in Rio, tied for fourth at Evian in France, opened the Asia trip at home in China with a fourth-place tie, was second in Taiwan and tied for third in South Korea before winning in Malaysia and Japan. She took last week off, practicing only three days in Orlando.I think after the Asian wave, were just so tired. I think I needed the rest, Feng said. I feel actually pretty fresh coming into this week. ... Ive been playing well, so just wanted to keep up with the good playing.Feng birdied four of the last six holes -- the par-4 13th, par-5 14th, par-3 16th and par-5 17th -- in her bogey-free round. She made a 30-foot birdie putt on the par-5 first hole and also birdied the par-3 eighth.Ryu won the last of her three LPGA Tour titles in 2014.What I learned through this year, having like swing change this year, sometimes I just think about swing too much, Ryu said. So what I learned through that is I just rather more focus to like imagination. Just keep imagine how the ball is going to fly and what shot I am going to hit instead of where is my hand going to be, my wrist.Hull birdied the final four holes on the front nine and also birdied the 14th. She also was off last week after being delayed getting out of Japan.I was only home for four days, the 20-year-old English player said. I didnt touch a golf club. Hung out with my friends. I think I only touched a golf club once or twice last week.Carlota Ciganda had a 75. She won her first LPGA Tour title last month in South Korea and won the event in Mexico City on Sunday.Ko and Jutanugarn are fighting for the big year-end honors.Only a win would be enough to give Ko her second straight player-of-the-year award; any other result, and that title goes to Jutanugarn. They came in separated by $17,305 in the money standings, and Ko (69.611) enters with a minuscule edge over Chun (69.632) for the Vare Trophy presented to the player with the lowest scoring average.The points in the CME Globe standings reset for the finale, so Jutanugarn, Ko and Henderson all truly control their destinies when it comes to the $1 million bonus that goes to the points champion.

Miller reached right to deflect Mikhail Grabovskis attempt with just over 2 minutes remaining in regulation, and then made two more saves in the shootout Sunday to give the Sabres a 2-1 win over the Washington Capitals. Jose Juan Barea Jersey . Walcott is available for Saturdays home match against Southampton as Arsenal looks to extend its two-point lead at the top of the Premier League.

Bryant, who signed a five-year, $34 million contract as a free agent with Cleveland in March, reported symptoms on Monday morning, a team spokesman said. The New Zealand Rugby Union has formed a new collective agreement with its Players Association which will see an additional NZ$70m (£39.9m) allocated to its player payment pool over the next three years.The deal means the NZRU has increased financial muscle to keep its best talent in New Zealand and reports suggest it could see top All Blacks for the first time earning in excess of NZ$1m a year on salary alone.The increase in funds -- the pool is up from NZ$121m (£69m) to $NZ191m (£109m)-- is partly down to the revenue set to be generated by the British & Irish Lions tour of New Zealand.Were delighted to have concluded this important piece of work, NZRU CEO Steve Tew said. We believe that our partnership with players continues to be a critical factor in the success of New Zealand Rugby at all levels of the game.And we recognise that that close relationship is part of our competitive advantage.In a highly competitive global market, we cant compete purely oon money. Steve Nash Mavericks Jersey. For us, the difference has to be in the environment we offer and the strength of our support for players to have the lifestyle they want.This new deal further enhances that while the overall increased and expanded investment across a number of areas, means that our packages are increasingly competitive.This agreement has been developed on the back of some very hard work. I personally want to thank the players, our provincial union partners and the collective negotiation team for their work and commitment to ensuring rugby can continue to inspire and unify New Zealand communities.All Blacks stars Ben Smith, Israel Dagg and Aaron Cruden all have contracts with the NZRU which expire in 2017. They are attracting plenty of attention from Europe but the increase in funds could tempt them to stay in New Zealand. ' ' '
