Kohl used investment banker Steve Greenberg

YANGMEI, Taiwan -- Suzann Pettersen had a hole-in-one and increased her lead to five strokes Friday after the second round of the LPGA Taiwan Championship.wholesale jerseys . The defending champion aced the 133-yard second hole with a pitching wedge and finished with a 3-under 69 in swirling wind conditions to reach 7 under at Sunrise Golf and Country Club. "I called the shot. I hit it exactly how I wanted and was fortunate enough that I had a good break," the Norwegian star said. "It was a very good shot. Its nice to get a hole in one when you actually call the shot in advance and then pull the trigger." The second-ranked Pettersen was the only player in the 78-player field to break par in each round. "Today was a really tough day," Pettersen said. "The wind got stronger and stronger and its definitely not easy out there. The wind and the conditions test every aspect of the game. I mean, even an 80-yard shot, its challenging enough to control the spin and know what the ball is going to do. Standing over putts, you feel the wind on the body. Its a mental test out there but its a fun challenge. Ive been playing really solid golf, and Im excited to be where Im at after two days." She has three LPGA Tour victories this year, winning in Portland, Ore., and France in consecutive starts last month, and also won a Ladies European Tour event this year in China. "I think Im just getting to the point in my career that Id better just enjoy what I do," Pettersen said. "Im tough enough on myself that, I mean, I can grind it out on the course and kind of be focused. But Im trying to enjoy this ride, because I guess Im maturing and you actually realize that you are fortunate to do what you do." South Koreas Sun Young Yoo of South Korea and Spains Carlota Ciganda were tied for second. Yoo had a 69, and Ciganda shot 70. "I knew it was going to be windy today, so I just focused on where I want to start the ball, instead of focusing to getting close to the pin," Yoo said. Taiwanese star Yani Tseng, the 2011 winner, followed her opening 76 with a 78 to drop 17 strokes back. Winless in 41 LPGA Tour since the 2012 Kia Classic, she has tumbled from first to 25th in the world ranking in seven months. Torontos Rebecca Lee-Bentham is tied for 45th at 7-over 151. cheap jerseys from china . Louis Cardinals in Game 1 of the World Series.

He had one big caveat for any potential investors: Keep the team in his hometown of Milwaukee. And he found a buyer. The former U.S. senator is banking on New York investment firm executives Marc Lasry and Wesley Edens to follow through after agreeing to sell them the Bucks for about $550 million. The deal is subject to approval by the NBA and its board of governors. "I wasnt going to live forever. Ive approached a time in my life where I have to think about ... how do we think about succession," Kohl, 79, said Wednesday at a news conference in the atrium of the BMO Harris Bradley Center. The deal was announced hours before the team was to play its final game of a dismal season. The first clue that the Bucks were likely staying in town came before Kohl said a word, when Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett and County Executive Chris Abele took seats on stage. Kohl had been championing the need for a new arena for years. As efforts to secure investors ramped up in recent months, Kohl said he thought it might be best to sell the team entirely instead of keeping a stake to give the new owners say over new arena construction. Lasry and Edens committed to providing $100 million to help build a new arena. Kohl also announced he would donate $100 million for a new facility. "Milwaukee fans deserve a winning team," Edens said. Kohl bought the Bucks for $18 million in 1985. Kohl, a Milwaukee native whose family owned a chain of department stores, was hailed as a hometown hero. Now local and state officials hope the sale will help shift the public discourse for replacing the Bradley Center, the teams downtown home which opened in 1988. "We should be shouting from the rooftops because this is a game-changer for this entire debate," Barrett said. Edens said he hopes to get a plan for a new arena in a year, and have it built in a couple years. He said he thought about $400 million could be a benchmark for building the faciliity. wholesale nfl nike jerseys. Kohl said the subject of the sale would come up at an NBA meeting this week in New York. In a statement, league commissioner Adam Silver praised Kohl for the "historic and unprecedented" $100 million gift to the city to secure the future of the franchise. Kohl used investment banker Steve Greenberg, of Allen & Co., which is regularly involved in sales of sports teams, to help look for investors. There were nine bids which we all vetted through Kohl, according to Greenberg. Lasry and Edens were committed to keeping the team in Milwaukee, Kohl said. Lasry is chairman and chief executive officer of Avenue Capital Group, while Edens is co-founder and a chairman of the board at Fortress Investment Group. Both are based in New York. Edens said his mother was born and raised in Wisconsin, and that both he and Lasry were big basketball fans. The goal over the next five to 10 years was to "bring a championship to this city and try to build ... and become a part of the community," Lasry said. In Madison, Gov. Scott Walker said he was pleased with the deal that will keep the team in Wisconsin, and that he will work with the new ownership team to see how he can help the team "flourish in the state." "I think its a big deal," he told reporters when asked about the sale. The Bucks were an NBA-worst 15-66 entering Wednesday nights game against the Atlanta Hawks. Milwaukee has already set a franchise record for futility. The team was beset by injuries from training camp in coach Larry Drews first season. Center Larry Sanders and guard O.J. Mayo are among the veterans who have been sidelined for long spurts. Brandon Knight has emerged as a scoring point guard, while 18-year-old Giannis Antetokounmpo had a promising first year after being drafted in the first round last year. The Bucks will have another high pick in this years talent-rich draft. And there is more certainty now for the future since the teams prospective new owners appear committed to keeping the team in Milwaukee. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
