PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas -- Lydia Ko took a share of the lead in her first start as an LPGA Tour member, matching Meena Lee with a 5-under 68 on Thursday in the season-opening Bahamas LPGA Classic. Rui Manuel Marques Jersey . The 16-year-old Ko turned pro late last year. She won the Canadian Womens Open the last two years as an amateur and closed last season with a victory in a non-tour event in Taiwan in her second pro start. Ranked No. 4 in the world, the South Korean-born New Zealander had six birdies and a bogey on Atlantis Resorts Ocean Club course. "I just tried to play my own game and be relaxed," Ko said. "I got off to a shaky start and I needed to make a 4-footer for par, but when I made birdie at No. 2, I was able to relax. I was actually shocked that I wasnt nervous. I felt I even played better than my score. I gave myself a lot of opportunities." Lee, from South Korea, eagled the par-4 13th and had four birdies and a bogey. "I had a wintertime working hard, so thats why I have more confidence than last year," said Lee, a two-time winner on the LPGA Tour. "Thats why I feel very good and happy to play in the first tournament." Third-ranked Stacy Lewis was a stroke back at 69 along with Jessica Korda, Brittany Lang, Mirim Lee, Austin Ernst, Danah Bordner, Amelia Lewis, P.K. Kongkraphan and Candie Kung. Lewis played alongside Ko. "When she gets some confidence in herself, the rest of this tour better watch out," Lewis said. "When I saw we were paired together, I was pretty happy. She is just a really likable kid. ... "I think our games are very similar, just the way we play. We both hit it solid and make some putts. She rolled it great today. For the first seven, eight holes, she made everything she looked at." Lewis had five birdies and a bogey. "I thought Id be a little bit more rusty than I was," Lewis said. "But I got off to a good start, and really just hit the ball really solid and was able to control some shots in the wind and the shots that I saw I was able to pull off. I was really happy with the way I hit the ball." Ko recently signed an equipment deal with Callaway, changed her swing coach and hired a new caddie. "Over the last month hearing the word change, it could pretty much be my middle name," Ko said. Lewis also commented on all the changes Ko has made. "You can change your clubs, your coach, all these things, but shes still the same person," Lewis said. Jaye Marie Green had a 71. The 19-year-old Green won the LPGA qualifying tournament by 10 strokes last month, finishing the 90-hole event at a record 29 under. Michelle Wie shot 72. Defending champion Ilhee Lee opened with a 74. Last May, the inaugural event was reduced to three 12-hole rounds because of flooding. Torontos Rebbeca Lee-Bentham carded a 74. Jennifer Kirby of Paris, Ont., and Helena Sharp of Hamilton are another shot back at 75. Sue Kim of Langley, B.C., and Maude-Aimme Leblanc of Sherbrooke, Que., shot 79s. Jorge Campos Jersey . Just ask Arsenal fans. However, Arsene Wenger has repeatedly told anyone willing to listen that finishing in that spot is more important than winning a cup competition. Candido Ramirez Jersey . At times during a solid but not spectacular season, they looked all three. Still the defending AFC champions persevered, riding their top-ranked defence and key contributions from younger players to a 12-4 record and their eighth playoff appearance since 2000, remarkable consistency in a league where change is the only constant. http://www.soccermexicojerseysteamshop.com/javier-guemez-mexico-jersey/ . Henry, who missed three games with a knee injury, was charged with a handball in the penalty area in the 82nd minute as he went to block a strike from Patrick Mullins. On the ensuing penalty kick, Lee Nguyen picked up his fourth goal of the season, giving the Revolution a 2-1 win Saturday afternoon. ATLANTA -- Greg Norman is recovering from a chain saw accident that nearly cost him his left hand, but not his sense of humour. "At least I can still play tennis," Norman told The Associated Press by phone Sunday morning. Norman, the Hall of Fame golfer and entrepreneur, was cutting back trees in his South Florida home when the weight of a branch pulled his left hand toward the chain saw. He said the blade hit him just below where a person would be wearing a wrist watch. He said doctors told him it missed his artery by a fraction of an inch. "Thank God the blade wasnt running full speed or it would have taken my hand off," Norman said. "I handled everything as calmly as I could. There is no major damage. There is nerve damage, but no muscular damage. They fixed me up and here I am." He posted a photo on Instagram from the hospital bed of his heavily bandaged left hand protected by a large piece of purple foam. "Working with a chainsaw ALWAYS be respectful of the unexpected. I was one lucky man today. Damaged, but not down & out. Still have left hand," he posted. The Shark woke up Sunday to more than 200 comments on Instagram, and news stories from America to Australia. "I just didnt expect when I posted that Instagram that it would explode like that," Norman said. Jesus Duenas Jersey. Oddly enough, Norman had posted another Instagram a week earlier standing next to a tree and holding a chain saw. "Time to trim the sea grapes today. Never ask someone to do something that you can do yourself. Love to work!" Norman said he would do it again. "When Im on a ranch, I love to run the bulldozer, the grader, whatever. I like doing stuff. I never ask anybody to do that for me if I can do it myself," he said. Norman posted another Instagram on Sunday morning, standing in front of the tree without a shirt while giving a thumbs-up with his right hand. His left hand was protected by the purple foam the size of a small waste basket. "Thank u all for your concern & good wishes. All well the morning after the accident. Here I am at the scene of the crime w/ my new fashion statement!" Norman said he would have to keep the foam for at least a few days and would be in a sling for a few weeks before starting rehab. The 59-year-old Australian was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2001. He hasnt played competitively in two years. "Theres a little tingling in my fingers, which is better than no fingers at all," he said.
