Wie finishes sixth at ANA Inspiration; Ryu wins in playoff”

Ryu birdied the 18th hole in the playoff to win her second major title, but her celebration was muted because of the freakish circumstances.

It was deemed that Thompson, 22, had marked her ball on a two-footer on the 17th in the third round and replaced it around an inch away.

"It's unfortunate what happened", Thompson said afterwards. I mean, it's obscene. Those two shots, the first time he has played the hole in front of a crowd since previous year, could prove just the tonic for the former world number one as he chases a second Masters title.

Wie had six birdies - three over her final six holes - and three bogeys in her round.

TV pictures showed that before Thompson picked it up, her ball completely covered the marker, but when she replaced it, the marker could be seen from the same angle.

Spanish League to probe match fixing
The 12-0 loss equalled a record for Spain's third division - Extremadura routed Portuense by the same score in 1993. Saad did say that Barcelona had nothing to do with the match-fixing and just did what they had to do.

Instead of Thompson earning her second ANA Inspiration title in four years, it was Ryu who won her second major title, her fourth LPGA title but her first LPGA win in three years.

LEXI THOMPSON: What I learned most? "I am really appreciative of everything right now". "You know, it's a hard thing to do, and it made me sick, to be honest with you".

"I've realized that the more I can get comfortable with this golf course. and the more I can get comfortable in the environment and the surroundings, the better", the 27-year-old Northern Irishman said. When he played the 12th on Tuesday, in front of a large gallery but merely for practice, it was on his mind again.

Ryu still made the traditional joyous leap into Poppie's Pond with her caddie and family.

Suzann Pettersen finished third with Australia's Minjee Lee and Inbee Park of South Korea, on 13-under. The 2014 ANA Inspiration victor made three birdies on her opening nine and added a birdie on the par-5 11th hole.

Nationwide Recall For Mylan's EpiPen Over Potential Defect
So far, the USA recall covers 13 EpiPen lots distributed from December 17, 2015, to July 1, 2016. This company also makes a Generic EpiPen that is not included in the recall, according to ABC 15.

She was unaware, however, that the LPGA had received a message from a television viewer informing them of a potential violation of the rules during Saturday's third round. "I feel like we have it mapped out and, as we dissect the golf course, we know the spots to go, where not to go and therefore the commitment on shots". If you want to start a little earlier, Spieth goes off at 10:34 a.m. ET and Phil Mickelson at 10:45 a.m. ET.

The tour only decided on the penalty during the final round, penalizing Thompson for two strokes for an incorrect placement and two more for an incorrect scorecard.

When she was informed of what she had done by an official, she responded by saying "Is this a joke?"

Thompson appeared to choke up slightly, but gathered herself and mashed a drive, eventually posting a birdie on the par-4 13th hole. Every shot Tiger Woods plays the camera is on him.

"Viewers at home should not be officials wearing stripes", the 14-time major champion tweeted. "Going into the tournament, I had no expectations about winning, at all".

Raiders are moving to the City of Sin
Instead, Oakland proposed a plan that used private money, while Las Vegas was able to secure $750 million in taxpayer funds. In the case of Mack, the Raiders' first-round pick in 2014, the team can exercise the option for his fifth season in 2018.

"It's all to the fans", said Thompson, who was vying for her second major title.
