    导出博客文章WATERLOO, Ont. -- With the greens soft and weather conditions ideal, Catriona
    Matthew was aggressive from the start of her round Friday at the Manulife
    Financial LPGA Classic. She nearly holed her approach shot on the opening hole
    before settling for par. The eagle she barely missed out on would come four
    holes later. Five birdies followed in her bogey-free round, vaulting Matthew
    into top spot at 15-under-par 127 at the tournaments midway point. "It feels
    really good, Ive holed a lot of putts but Ive given myself a lot of chances,"
    Matthew said. "I wouldnt really say Ive holed many super-long ones but just
    every time Ive given myself a chance Im kind of taking advantage of them." The
    127 total blew away her previous career-best 36-hole mark on tour by five
    strokes. Matthew was three shots ahead of American Angela Stanford (67). Anna
    Nordqvist of Sweden shot a 64 and was tied at 11 under with American Ryann
    OToole (65), Spains Belen Mozo (66) and South Koreas Chella Choi (65) and Meena
    Lee (66). Matthew, who hit a 25-foot-putt for eagle on the par-5 fifth hole,
    birdied two of the next three holes for a 32 on the front nine. She was at a
    loss to explain her comfort level on the southwestern Ontario course. "I would
    say first time here, obviously suits my eye a little bit, maybe just got the
    speed of the greens," Matthew said. "I think thats the important thing. When
    youre holing putts, it all seems quite easy." Matthew missed only one fairway on
    the day and hit all but one green in regulation. It was warm and sunny Friday
    but the greens were still moist from rain earlier in the week. Stanford played
    this event in its inaugural season last year and said the course is playing much
    different this time around. "I think the firmness of the greens last year made
    it a little bit tougher," she said. "You had to kind of pay attention to where
    you were landing it. "This week theyre so soft you can kind of go pin hunting."
    The wide fairways and open layout of the 6,330-yard, par-71 course rewarded
    consistency off the tee. The ball often sat tight near the pin after quality
    approach shots instead of rolling through, resulting in many birdie and eagle
    opportunities. Eleven players cracked the double-digit mark after only 36 holes.
    It could mean a score of -20 -- or better -- will be needed to win the
    US$1.3-million tournament. Top-ranked Inbee Park of South Korea, who is looking
    to win her fourth straight LPGA Tour event, had a 67 and was tied with three
    other players at 10 under. Brooke Henderson of Smiths Falls, Ont., shot a 66 and
    was the top Canadian at 6 under. The weather forecast is calling for the same
    comfortable conditions over the last two rounds. "Course conditions determine a
    lot. This setup, like last year, was not easy," Stanford said. "Anywhere in the
    world if greens get soft, it makes it a lot more accessible. So I dont think the
    layout is what makes it easy. I think just the fact that theyve had so much rain
    here and its softer. "But if its firm and fast, then youve got to pay attention
    to where you land your ball and running through fairways. So I think its just
    the greens being soft has been our gift this week." Park is trying to become the
    first golfer to win four straight LPGA tournaments since Lorena Ochoa in 2008.
    "I mean this golf course is very scorable, and a lot of people are going on
    birdie streaks," Park said. "Its tough to follow that many birdies all four
    days. Im trying my best to get it out there." Nancy Lopez holds the tour record
    with five consecutive victories in 1978, a mark equalled by Annika Sorenstam
    over the 2004-05 seasons. Park recently won the U.S. Womens Open to become the
    first player to win the years first three majors since Babe Zaharias swept the
    three majors played in the LPGAs inaugural season in 1950. Park will go for her
    fourth major in a row at the Womens British Open next month. Notes: Matthew has
    recorded 36-hole totals of 132 on two occasions, the most recent in 2005. ...
    Park turned 25 on Friday. Fans in the grandstand at the 18th hole sang "Happy
    Birthday" to her as she walked off the green after sinking a short birdie putt.
    Park, who started her round on the 11th hole, smiled and waved to the crowd. ...
    Henderson and Jennifer Kirby of Paris, Ont., were added to the 144-player field
    as sponsor exemptions. Kirby and Charlottetowns Lorie Kane were at 5-under-par
    137. Hamiltons Alena Sharp was the other Canadian to make it to the weekend,
    just making the cut at 3 under.

    . Perhaps Carroll was so prepared for a break because he
    believes there is very little the Seattle Seahawks need heading into the
    off-season. "I dont see anything that we need to add. We just have to get
    better," Carroll said.

    .ca! Hi Kerry, Its another day and here we
    are looking at another dubious hit to the head. In this case Blue Jackets
    forward Brandon Dubinsky elbowed Saku Koivu in the head about a second after he
    dished off the puck to a teammate, knocking him unconscious.

    him the most, but his sixth straight double-double made up for the brief burst
    of pain.

    . The judges scored it 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 for
    Jones (19-1). It was the champions closest call. Despite the loss, it was a
    remarkable show by the confident Swedish challenger, who had the best of the
    early rounds and then hung on in the fourth and fifth. OXFORD, Miss. -- The NCAA

    programs and placed the athletic department on probation through 2019.The ruling
