By The Associated Press Sat., Aug. 4, 2018 LYTHAM ST. ANNES, ENGLAND—Pornanong Phatlum made the Royal Lytham course sing for her again as she held on to her overnight one-shot lead in the Women’s British Open after the third round on Saturday. Phatlum has been singing Thai songs in her head to calm herself on a links course she admits to struggling on. Though any struggling hasn’t been apparent, yet. She birdied the third, sixth, eighth, and 11th holes, and dropped her first shot of the major on the par-3 12th, a bogey. It added up to a solid 3-under-par 69 and the prospect of a first win on the LPGA Tour, let alone a first major title. “Singing in my head makes me come down more, not get too nervous,” Phatlum said.

Rockets torch Timberwolves for 2-0 series lead Kristie Rieken (Associated Press) - April 19, 2018 - 1:02pm HOUSTON — Chris Paul had 27 points and Gerald Green came off the bench to score 21 as the Houston Rockets used a huge second quarter to cruise to a 102-82 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night (Thursday Manila time) that gave them a 2-0 lead in their first-round playoff series. Houston fell behind early, but went on top for good with a 37-point second quarter, powered by four 3-pointers from Green, and the Wolves didn't threaten again. The top-seeded Rockets won the opener by three behind a 44-point performance from James Harden on a night when most of the team struggled offensively. Things were much different on Wednesday when Harden had just 12 points as one of four Rockets who finished in double figures. https://sja.sportradar.com/w/Philstar Global/14321525/313100 Minnesota's Karl-Anthony Towns had … [Read more...] about Rockets torch Timberwolves for 2-0 series lead
