PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas -- Jessica Korda laughed about her winning up-and-down and being sprayed with shaving cream. Michael Wacha Jersey
. She choked up, too, thinking about her cancer-stricken coach. The 20-year-old Korda won the season-opening Bahamas LPGA Classic on Sunday for her second tour title, holing a 6-foot birdie putt on the final hole to beat Stacy Lewis by a stroke. Korda recently started working again with Grant Price after struggling with a swing she felt led to left shoulder and wrist injuries. "Grant means so much to me," Korda said. "Hes so positive, and thats really kind of shown. Its given me a lot of confidence this week. His positivity, and hes like, Youre going to be ready for this week. Youre going to be ready for this week. ... Him being on the range and constantly kind of encouraging the positive in me, into my mind, it helped me so much." Price, Hall of Famer Nick Prices nephew, is fighting testicular cancer. "Ive known Grant since I was 15 years old, so I know how it is and whats going on," Korda said. "But first thing I did, and I asked him, I was like, Can you help me? And if you cant, its completely OK. Like, If you dont feel up to it, then its fine. Like, I dont mind, but I need to know if youre going to be OK first. And thats how every practice started." Korda closed with a 7-under 66 for a 19-under 273 total at Atlantis Resorts Ocean Club. The third-ranked Lewis parred the final four holes -- two of them par 5s -- for a 66. "I only birdied the 18th hole once this week and that made the difference," Lewis said. "Three of the four days I went over the green to the same place, so obviously that wasnt the place to be. But you are not doing a lot wrong if you a finish second. And thats what Ill take away from this week." Korda tied Lewis for the lead with a 12-foot birdie putt on the par-3 17th, then got up-and-down for birdie on the par-5 18th. Kordas 4-iron approach on 18 scampered through the green and up against the grandstand. She took relief from the grandstand and, with an official and a TV announcer holding up cords that would have interfered with her stroke, putted under the wires to set up the winning birdie. "That was different," Korda said. "It was like jump rope. ... It was like Double Dutch. I was jumping over wires with people holding onto them. It was really funny." She passed on a drop that would have moved her away from the cables. "It wasnt a hard decision at all," Korda said. "I felt I had a good lie there. It looked too difficult on either side, so I just stayed right where I was. I remember when I had the pleasure of playing with Jack Nicklaus, he told me a bad putt is always better than a bad chip." After the winning putt, she was sprayed with shaving cream -- courtesy of tournament sponsor Pure Silk. "I smell really good. It smells really good," said Korda, whose father, Petr, won the 1998 Australian Open tennis tournament and mother, Regina Raichrtova, also played pro tennis. Korda earned $195,000 and is projected to jump from 40th to 26th in the world ranking. She also won the 2012 Womens Australian Open in the first event of the season. "Its unbelievable," Korda said. "I dont know, maybe I pay attention more to detail, and Im more relaxed out here. But whatever it is, I need to figure it out and do it more often." Lewis birdied six of the first eight holes, then dropped a stroke on the par-4 ninth. She birdied the par-5 11th and par-4 14th to reach 18 under, but closed with four straight pars. On 18, her flop shot came up short and her 15-foot birdie try stopped inches from the cup. "Its very frustrating," Lewis said. "The 18th hole has gotten me the last couple tournaments." Paula Creamer, paired with Korda all four days, had a 69 to tie for third with Na Yeon Choi, Lizette Salas and Pornanong Phatlum at 16 under. Phatlum finished with a 67, Salas had a 71, and Choi shot 72. Lydia Ko, the 16-year-old New Zealander making her first start as an LPGA Tour member, had a 68 to tie for seventh at 15 under. She won the Canadian Womens Open the last two years as an amateur. Ozzie Smith Authentic Jersey
. He didnt let that stop him. After getting fouled hard by Enes Kanter on a fast break in the third quarter and twisting his ankle, Harden shook it off --the same way his Houston Rockets shook off a 19-point deficit and rolled to 104-93 victory over Utah on Saturday night that kept the Jazz winless and the Rockets undefeated.

. Midway through the first period, Lupul was hit by two Red Wings players, including Eaves and knocked to the ice. The Leafs forward retaliated with a cross-check to the neck area of Eaves, who left the game with an upper-body injury and did not return.SAO PAULO - The latest stadium inaugurated for the World Cup in Brazil held its first two matches without major glitches on Sunday, a day after demonstrators across Brazil protested against the tournament. The Arena das Dunas in the northeastern city of Natal sustained minor damage during the protests, but demonstrators stayed away on Sunday and officials said the stadium passed its first test, with only minor adjustments needed going forward. Work was being done until the final moments before the inaugural match, but the doubleheader between local clubs in front of tens of thousands of fans was not affected. Before the matches, local media reported that police arrested two men accused of firing shots at a group of rival fans a few kilometres from the stadium. No one was injured. Demonstrators complaining about the costs of the World Cup destroyed some protective fencing and set fire to temporary tents outside the Arena das Dunas late Saturday. Local media reported security guards fired shots into the air to disperse the crowd. The Tribuna do Norte newspaper said 19 people were detained. The protest was part of a nationwide movement by those oopposed the level of spending on the World Cup. Michael Wacha Authentic Jersey
. . About 1,000 people protested in Sao Paulo and smaller demonstrations took place in several other cities. Demonstrators attacked an empty police vehicle, torched a small car and smashed the windows of banks in Sao Paulo. Authorities responded with tear gas and rubber bullets and detained more than 100 people in South Americas biggest city. On its Facebook page, the Anonymous Rio protest group billed "Operation Stop the World Cup" as this years first act against the football tournament. The Confederations Cup was marked by violent protests last year and more are expected during the World Cup. The Arena das Dunas was the seventh World Cup stadium to be completed, with five still being worked on less than five months before the opening game on June 12. Those stadiums are mostly expected to be ready in time, but there is doubt about whether Curitiba will remain a host city as the stadium there is running well behind schedule. Brazil had promised to hand over all 12 World Cup stadiums by the end of 2013. Six of them were ready for the Confederations Cup last year. wholesale nfl jerseyscheap jerseys from china
