England fly-half Owen Farrell has said the World Cup failure left him with a point to prove and has driven the team to its current 100 percent record under Eddie Jones. Cheap Bears Jerseys .Farrell said that while the memory of being eliminated from their home tournament at the group stages remains, it was used in a positive way to drive the team forward.I can only talk from my experience but I went into that [next] season feeling I had something to prove, he told The Times. I could not wait to get going and rip into it. It was not about putting it behind me because its still happened, it doesnt go away, but there was so much bad press -- and everybody and his dog had an opinion -- that you just wanted to show what youre about.I dont dwell on it, but you can use it to go forward. Dont sit on it and let it be something that drags you down, but use it the right way and let it take you forward. A lot of the lads did that.Another help has been Jonny Wilkinson, Englands 2003 World Cup winning fly-half, who Jones has brought in as part of his back-room team. It seemed to have worked as Farrell converted 23 of 26 kicks in their summer whitewash of Australia, but the Saracens star admits, its not all about kicking.A lot of it is not to do with kicking and skills but about the way you think and the way you are, added Farrell says. (His) knowledge is such that he explains things to you in different ways and takes you to a new place.Even just sitting there and talking to him you feel you are getting better and gaining more control of what you do. Im passionate about improvement. Cheap Bears Jerseys China . John Lucas, signed as a mentor for rookie Trey Burke, showed he can score if required, scoring 12 points of his 16 points in the second quarter as Utah built an 18-point lead. Wholesale Bears Jerseys . After a first half in which he thought "the lid was on the basket," the Toronto Raptors coach watched his squad mount a second half surge to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers 98-91. http:///...ernell-mcphee-jersey .Y. - Free agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, fresh off winning the World Series with Boston, reached agreement with the rival New York Yankees on a seven-year contract worth about $153 million, a person familiar with the negotiations said Tuesday night. RIO DE JANEIRO --?Inbee Park was in the 16th fairway, only 50 yards from the hole, and couldnt imagine a worse spot to be.She already had lost a three-shot lead in gusts up to 30 mph Friday at Olympic Golf Course.And now she faced a shot that would punish anything just a little long or a little left.The safe play was the middle of the green and get out of there with a par.Park had other ideas. She took two months off from golf to get ready for the Olympics, and it was time to trust her instincts.Luckily, I had an uphill lie, she said. I said, Im just going to go for this pin. I have confidence that I can stop it if I hit the distance. I played aggressive golf there, and it really worked good.Starting with that pitch to tap-in range, she birdied two straight holes and shot a 1-under 70 to take a two-shot lead into the final round.Now comes the real test. Just as difficult as the wind was seeing the name of Lydia Ko --the No. 1 player in womens golf --right behind her.Ko made the first hole-in-one of her career as she raced into contention with a 65, closing the gap to two shots. The 19-year-old from New Zealand started the day seven shots behind and now has a solid chance at gold.We all know theres a lot on the line at the end of tomorrow, Ko said. I think Ive done a good job of putting myself in there and still having the chance to be standing on that podium.Gerina Piller, the American who narrowly qualified for the Olympics in her final event, shot a 68 and joined them in the final group, two shots behind.Piller has never won on the LPGA Tour, though there is something about playing for her country that brings out her best golf. Pillers signature moment was making the winning putt for the United States in the Solheim Cup last year in Germany.I feel like I have a chance at this, she said. Im going to try to do the best I can and represent my country with class.Shanshan Feng of China shot 68 and was three shots back. Starting times have been moved up with play starting on the first and 10th tees because of more rugged conditions in the forecast.Park was still the player to beat.The 28-year-old South Korean finally got her putter going, and shes among the best in womens golf on the greens.Her struggles were with the longer clubs, especially as the wind became fierce. Cheap Chicago Bears Jerseys. Park tried to play short on the par-4 12th into the wind and hit into the sandy native area. On the par-3 14th, her hybrid went well over the green into more trouble, and she lost her lead.Those two late birdies helped alleviate one final mistake. On the par-5 closing hole, Parks tee shot found a bunker and it took three more shots to reach the green. She made one last bogey and was at 11-under 202.I feel I hung in there, and Im very happy I have a chance tomorrow, Park said. It was hard to judge the distance, and on the green it was hard to concentrate because the ball was oscillating. Im pretty exhausted.Charley Hull of Britain fell out of the chasing pack by missing three par putts inside 5 feet on the back nine. She shot 74 and was six shots behind. Brooke Henderson of Canada, the No. 2 player in womens golf, struggled even more. Henderson was still in the mix when she four-putted for double bogey on the 16th hole, taking three of those putts from 3 feet. She wound up with a 75 and was seven back.Ko is right where she wants to be and is the most seasoned of those going after the gold medal, the first for womens golf since 1900. She is a four-time winner on the LPGA Tour this year, the best player in womens golf and finally got some confidence in her putter.She used a 7-iron for her hole-in-one on the par-3 eighth hole --the second of the day after Lin Xiyu of China made an ace on that hole --as the highlight of a front nine in which she shot 29.Ko was stunned to hear the cheering when it dropped in.I made my first ever hole-in-one, so to do that at the Olympics, it doesnt get any better than that, Ko said.But to put myself back into good position going into tomorrow I think was a job well done going forward.Stacy Lewis went backward. The American, who began the day one shot behind, made a bogey on the easy par-5 fifth by hitting into the water, and closed out her round with a double bogey on the 18th when her third shot sailed long into the native area, and she chipped back over the green. She shot 76. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
