the par-4 10th hole but made up some ground on the back nine from mary123's blog

Not much went Marcus Frasers way Saturday at the mens Olympic golf tournament, yet he is still in contention to win the first golf gold medal in more than a century. Matt Gay Womens Jersey .The Australian, who led after the first and second rounds, didnt have his first birdie until the 13th hole in Round 3, which got him back to even par for the day. That birdie, his only one in the round, barely snuck in the side door of the cup. In comparison, Fraser had a combined 13 birdies the first two days of the competition.The three-time European Tour winner finished with a 1-over par 72 in round 3 and has sole possession of third place, 3 shots behind 54-hole leader Justin Rose from Great Britain and 2 strokes back of Swedens Henrik Stenson.Fraser knows the golfers ahead of him on the leaderboard, both of whom are major champions, wont make it easy for him to capture the gold medal. But he isnt letting that deter him.Not in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would come to the Olympics and compete, and now all of a sudden, I have a chance of winning a medal, said Fraser, who got into the field after four countrymen withdrew for various reasons. It feels like Im going to wake up from this dream at some point. This is why we practice and we want to be in these situations and see what weve got. Hopefully, I can go out there [Sunday] and play a bit better than I did today and continue to scramble when I need to and shoot a good score.With his opening-round and Olympic-record 63 on Thursday, Fraser proved he can put up low numbers around the Olympic Golf Course that resembles venues in the Sand Belt of his native Australia. But can he overtake Rose and Stenson, plus hold off the rest of the field, to win Sunday?I probably need those guys to be a little bit off to be able to do that, said Fraser, who will be in the final pairing with Rose and Stenson. Their best is a lot better than my best, and Im not hiding away from that. If I go out there and do a good job with my game and the way I play, I think I definitely have a chance, thats for sure.When his head hits the pillow Saturday, Fraser will go to sleep knowing hes just 18 holes from making history.Yeah, you cant hide from it, he said. Its right there in front of you, so you cant hide away from it or shy away from it. Like I go out there every time, I try and feel like I do my best and play as hard as I can and try and make as many birdies as I can, and tomorrow will be no different.If its good enough at the end of the day to get a medal, so be it. I couldnt think of [anything] better than putting something around my neck. Hopefully that comes off, but I wont leave anything on the table. Ill give it everything. Warren Sapp Jersey . Their 38th instalment is arguably their biggest fight card to date, including three-title fights and a main event which was selected by the fans.  The promotion boasts 14-straight years of business and is operated by MFC president Mark Pavelich, who is often overlooked in this country for the foundation hes established for MMA in Canada. Mike Edwards Womens Jersey .com) - The Chicago Blackhawks aim for their third three-game winning streak of the season when they host the struggling Edmonton Oilers in Sundays battle at the United Center. . LOUIS -- Alexander Steen scored a power-play goal with 59. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Ryan Held couldnt sing along to the U.S. national anthem with his teammates. He was too overcome with emotion on the top spot of the medal podium.Held broke down crying, his shoulders shaking, his eyes squeezed shut after the Americans won the 4x100-meter freestyle relay on the second night of swimming at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics on Sunday. Caeleb Dressel, Michael Phelps, Nathan Adrian and Held teamed to claim the gold in 3 minutes, 9.92 seconds for the first time since the 2008 Beijing Games.Standing between Adrian and Phelps, Held bent his head and brought his left hand to his face as the anthem blared. Phelps saw what was happening and offered a supportive hand around Helds neck.I didnt think I was going to cry. I was too tired to cry, I didnt think I could cry, Held said. Ive heard the national anthem hundreds of times, but as soon as that played it was just something different. The tears just started rolling down my face.On the stroll around the deck, gold medals slung around their necks, Dressel lost it, too. He brought his right arm across his face to wipe away tears.They were making us cry, said Phelps, who had a tear roll down his cheek while posing for photographers.Adrian swam the anchor leg for a team highly motivated to bring Olympic gold back to the U.S. The Americans lost the race four years ago in London and didnt even make the final at last years world championships in Russia, when Phelps was suspended for his second DUI. Sean Bunting Youth Jersey. Adrian smiled as he comforted his younger teammates.I love a little emotion, he said. I had to fight back some tears myself.Dressel, a sophomore at Florida, and Held are Olympic rookies. Heck, the Rio de Janeiro Games are the first international meet of Helds career. The sophomore at North Carolina State didnt make the U.S. team in an individual event, so getting the chance to swim the relay final with veterans Adrian and Phelps was huge.I thrive off their energy, I feel more confident, Held said. I feel like I stand a little bit taller with those guys. Michael and Adrian, theyre like, `Once in a lifetime experience, lets go after it, have fun, let the emotions feel you.Phelps had counseled Dressel and Held ahead of time that it was OK to sing and cry on the medal stand.Its good to see the emotion of those young guys. It shows they really do care and they love what theyre doing, said Phelps, who earned his record 19th Olympic gold medal.Held marveled at his good fortune to have helped add to Phelps glittering collection.Holy cow, its unreal, unbelievable, he said. To be with him and to be teammates on his last hoorah, its amazing. Wholeslae Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap Baseball Jerseys ' ' '
