RIO DE JANEIRO -- Stacy Lewis made 11 birdies on Thursday to match the low score at Olympic Golf Course with an 8-under 63, putting her right in the mix for a gold medal in womens golf.As well as a low score, Lewis had red shoulders by the end of a sunny day. She always wears short sleeves, but her Team USA uniform didnt fit. Her only option was to go with the sleeveless version, which showed off shoulders that never get any sun.She still had a patriotic look, walking to the first tee with a blue shirt and white shoulders that turned red by days end.The American had no complaints about her golf or her position at the halfway point of the first Olympic womens golf competition since 1900. Lewis was one shot behind South Koreas Inbee Park, who birdied her last two holes for another 5-under 66 and the 36-hole lead.Charley Hull kept alive British hopes for a gold-medal sweep in golf with a 66 that left her two shots behind Park.Lewis piled up the birdies, finishing with four in a row, the last one the most unlikely. Her tee shot on the par-5 18th failed by a foot to clear a bunker, and the ball stayed on the steep slope of soft sand.I would have taken par and ran to the clubhouse, Lewis said.Instead, she hit one of her best shots with a 7-iron to advance it down the fairway, and then did even better with a hybrid from 199 yards to 4 feet for her 63.I was just trying to get a third shot after that lie in the bunker, Lewis said. I hit the shot of the week there.Marcus Fraser of Australia also shot a 63 in the opening round of the mens competition last week on a course set up about 900 yards longer.Lewis had no idea how many birdies she made or even how low she had shot until signing her card. All that mattered was a chance to win gold in what she considers the biggest week of her year -- next to her marriage Aug. 6 to Houston womens golf coach Gerrod Caldwell.A former No. 1 in the world, Lewis has gone more than two years since her last victory. She was irritated with her swing during the opening round and even after her practice session Thursday morning. Seeing a lot of putts go in can change everything.But it was her one bad hole that enabled Lewis to finish so well. Tied for the lead after a birdie on the 13th, she hit 4-iron into the bunker on the par-3 14th and blasted out weakly to 25 feet. After seeing so many putts go in, she charged her par putt about 4 feet by the hole and missed that one, taking double-bogey.I was a little bit mad after the double on 14 and got my focus back instead of going the other way, she said.She birdied the next two holes, then converted a 25-foot birdie putt from the fringe on the 17th and finished with her best birdie of the round.Park made her first bogey of the tournament on No. 7, but that was the only green she missed. She missed a 5-foot birdie putt on the 16th hole, and then converted birdies on the last two to reach 10-under 132. She figures to be a big part of the final two rounds the way she has kept the ball in play.Im going to try to keep calm as much as I can, she said. Im confident with everything, but I dont want to put too much pressure on myself.Hull didnt arrive in Rio until Sunday night and wasnt at the golf course when Justin Rose won golfs first Olympic gold since 1904 with a birdie on the final hole to defeat British Open champion Henrik Stenson.Lagging behind was Lydia Ko, the No. 1 player in the world and the favorite coming into the week. She could muster only a 70 and was seven shots out of the lead. Ariya Jutanugarn, who led after the opening round, was playing with Lewis and couldnt keep up. She shot a 72 and fell five shots out of the lead.The surprise was Aditi Ashok, the 18-year-old from India who had another 68 and was four shots out of the lead.

Emery skated the length of the ice and fought an unwilling Holtby during the third period of the Flyers 7-0 loss Friday night in Philadelphia. He was given 29 penalty minutes, including a game misconduct. But Emery did not face even a disciplinary hearing with NHL senior vice president of player safety Brendan Shanahan because rules 46. The NRLs greatest attacking unit of Canberra duo Joey Leilua and Jordan Rapana have the games most lacklustre defender in their sights.Raiders centre Leilua and his winger Rapanas right side attack have been key to the clubs charge to second spot on the NRL ladder.Rapana leads the NRL in linebreaks with 24, while Leilua leads the competition with offloads (65).And Sharks playmaker James Maloney, who has missed more tackles than any other player this year, has the task of keeping the barnstorming pair quiet in Saturdays qualifying final.Cronulla coach Shane Flanagan backed his representative five-eighth to rise to the occasion despite missing 99 tackles during the regular season.You dont play in grand finals and State of Origin and win minor premierships for a long period of time if you cant playy, Flanagan said.dddddddddddd.So James Maloney is one of those players we are expecting big things from on Saturday.Players like that come into their own at this time of the year.However Flanagan conceded Leilua and Rapana would take some stopping.They have been quality, he said.They are both big strong men, they have an offload and can carry the football.We need to be really tidy around them.Flanagan said the return of centre Ricky Leutele from injury was a boost for the Sharks left side defence.With Ricky Leutele coming back in it is great for us, he said.He has really good footwork and has played well on that side of the field in previous games (against Canberra).
