SINGAPORE -- Karrie Webb and Angela Stanford were so close down the stretch Saturday at the HSBC Womens Champions, matching each other birdie for birdie, that Stanford only sees one way to get the advantage in Sundays final round. http://www.airmax90blancas.es/air-max-90-br-espana.html . "Im going to send Webbie a six-pack (of beer) tonight," she said. Webb wasnt sure that would help. "Ill probably drink one and go to sleep," the Australian veteran said. The two players set up a Sunday showdown between former HSBC champions after finishing off their third rounds with identical birdies over three of the last five holes Saturday to separate themselves slightly from the rest of the crowded leaderboard. Webb, the 2011 winner, shot a 70 to move to 11-under 205, one stroke ahead of 2012 champion Stanford, who had a 69. They both have a chance to be the first repeat champion of the tournament, although on two different courses. Both players picked up their first HSBC crown at Singapores Tanah Merah Country Club and this years event is being played at the Sentosa Golf Club. Still, Stanford said, there are enough other quality players within striking range after a momentum-shifting day that anybody could claim the title. "Its really not worth looking at (the leaderboard)," she said. "You just know a lot of people are going to be at the top." Among those chasing Webb and Stanford are Spains Azahara Munoz, who fired an eagle and four birdies for a 5-under 67, the low round of the day; and Taiwans Teresa Lu, who gave up her LPGA membership in 2010 to concentrate on playing in Japan. Both are tied for third at 8-under 208. Americas Paula Creamer, who briefly held the lead with Webb and Munoz on Saturday, had six birdies to go with three bogeys to sit in fifth place at 7 under. Morgan Pressel of the United States was at 6 under, Norways Suzann Pettersen was another stroke back at 5 under, and Swedens Caroline Hedwall and South Koreas Na Yeon Choi were in joint eighth at 4 under. Webb, a seven-time major winner, led the first two rounds in Singapore, but started out slowly on Saturday. She played her front nine at even par and then bogeyed the 10th hole to go to 1 over, allowing the rest of the field to close the gap. "Even when I was not giving myself a lot of good birdie opportunities early on, I had to tell myself its Saturday, theres plenty of golf left to be played and just to be patient," she said. "And fortunately I listened to myself for a change." Webb turned it around on the 153-yard, par-3 14th hole, where she struck her tee shot to within a couple feet of the hole for an easy birdie putt. Next came a chip shot from the fairway on the 16th which rolled in for birdie to give her a two-stroke lead again. Stanford stayed with Webb, though, as the other challengers fell back. Not to be outdone on the 14th, the American placed her tee shot even closer than Webbs -- a mere inches -- leading to birdie. She matched Webbs birdie again on the 16th, and both players closed the round with birdies on the 18th. If either veteran slips in the final round, however, Munoz and Lu are right behind them. Both players are looking for their second LPGA titles. Munoz captured her only tournament at the 2012 Sybase Match Play Championship, while Lu won hers at last years Mizuno Classic. Defending champion Stacy Lewis disappointing week, meanwhile, looks likely to end her streak of 13 consecutive top-10 finishes on the LPGA Tour. Lewis shot a 73 on Saturday, leaving her far down the leaderboard in joint-42nd place. Lewis, the reigning Womens British Open champion, is only three away from matching Webbs LPGA record of 16 consecutive top-10 finishes, set in 1998-99. http://www.airmax90blancas.es/air-max-90-world-cup-espana.html . The CFL will help tackle womens cancers by playing four special "CFL PINK" games this weekend. http://www.airmax90blancas.es/air-max-90-essential-espana.html . Mauer struck out to end the inning, with a runner on third base in the seventh on Wednesday and the Twins trailing 1-0. Everybody does this, of course, in a sport with a 30 per cent success rate at the plate long proven to be a benchmark of excellence. http://www.airmax90blancas.es/ . The Wild, playing their first game since leading scorer Mikko Koivu broke his ankle Saturday at Washington, have won three straight for the first time since Nov. 1-5. Koivu underwent surgery on Monday and is expected to miss at least four weeks.CINCINNATI - The Bengals are in position to get a lot better in the one area where theyre lacking on offence.Receiver Marvin Jones is close to rejoining the Bengals (3-0) as they get ready to play at New England (2-2) on Sunday night. Jones is one of Cincinnatis best options close to the goal line, one that theyve missed a lot.Even though theyre one of only two unbeaten teams left in the NFL, theyre not without blemishes. Theyve struggled to finish drives during their first three games, sending out Mike Nugent for 11 field goal attempts.Theyve been missing Jones, who broke his left foot during training camp and had a screw inserted to help the healing. Hes close to rejoining the offence as the Bengals return from their bye week, giving quarterback Andy Dalton a favourite target in the end zone.Jones was on the field at Paul Brown Stadium on Wednesday in a shirt and shorts, jogging and playing catch on the sideline. He could join practice later in the week, putting him in position to run some plays in Foxborough.Jones caught 10 touchdown passes last season, nine of them when the Bengals ran plays inside the opponents 20-yard line.Hes a guy that can really stretch the field, Dalton said. Just having another playmaker out there that can do really good stuff for us a€” it will be fun to have him back.The Bengals have scored touchdowns on six of their 10 possessions inside the opponents 20-yard line, which ties for 14th in the NFL in red zone TD percentage.The Bengals drafted Jones in the fifth round in 2012 from California, hoping to add some speed to their group of receivers. Hes become very adept at using his 6-ffoot-2 frame and his leaping ability in crowded end zones. http://www.airmax90blancas.es/air-max-90-v-sp-patch-espana.html. He goes up and makes plays and attacks the ball, Dalton said. Thats why he caught so many touchdowns last year.Jones had 712 yards receiving last year. He had 130 yards in catching during a playoff loss to San Diego, setting a club record. He also set a club record with four touchdown catches during a 49-9 win over the Jets on Oct. 27.Jones said its important to convert on opportunities in the red zone.You just get in the mode, Jones said. Everything enhances.The offence ranks seventh in the league total yards. Dalton is the leagues 12th-ranked passer with a 95.4 rating. Hes thrown only one interception and has yet to be sacked.The Bengals are the only unbeaten team in the AFC even though theres still a lot of room to improve on offence, especially when they get close to the goal line.Its definitely encouraging, Jones said. It shows theres still meat on the bone. When we capitalize on those opportunities and were able to get points off that, its even better. Its a great problem to have, I guess.Notes: Pro Bowl linebacker Vontaze Burfict didnt practice on Wednesday. He hasnt been cleared to return from his second concussion of the season. Burfict sat out a 33-7 win over Tennessee before the bye week. He was on the field in a T-shirt and baseball cap. ... Right guard Kevin Zeitler went through drills on the sideline, showing a lot of improvement in his injured right calf. Zeitler was hurt during the second game of the season and sat out the win over Tennessee.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
