GURNEE, Ill. -- Charley Hull is fresh as a daisy, and England is dreaming big.Hull helped England grab the lead in the UL International Crown on Saturday, and the United States advanced with a sweep against Japan.Hull, who missed Fridays four-ball session with a fever and trouble with her asthma, teamed with Melissa Reid for a 3-and-1 victory over sisters Ariya and Moriya Jutanugarn of Thailand. Holly Clyburn and Jodi Ewart Shadoff routed Pornanong Phatlum and Porani Chutichai 7 and 5, helping seventh-seeded England to a Pool B-best nine points.We couldnt have asked for much of a better day than we got today, Clyburn said.The U.S., which began the day with just three points, turned in its best performance so far in the rare team event on the LPGA Tour. Lexi Thompson and Cristie Kerr posted their second straight win with a 4-and-2 victory over Ai Suzuki and Ayaka Watanabe, and Stacy Lewis and Gerina Piller surged to a 3-and-1 win over Haru Nomara and Mika Miyazato.Taiwan also wrapped up a spot in the fourth session before a lingering thunderstorm postponed play with two Pool A matches still on the course, leaving two spots open for Sundays 10 singles matches. The country with the most points at the end of the weekend wins a silver trophy, to go along with $100,000 and a crown for each of its four players.Before the rain drenched the course, the players had to play through hot, humid conditions at the Merit Club about 40 miles northwest of Chicago.Have you ever seen the movie `Good Morning, Vietnam, where Robin Williams goes off into the tangent where its like, its hot, its sticky, its hot? a smiling Kerr asked. It was pretty much like that.The 20-year-old Hull struggled to breathe for much of Thursday night and got some oxygen and an IV to help her feel better. She watched the back nine of Reids gutsy effort playing by herself in a close loss to Japan, and felt fresh as a daisy heading into the third session.Shaking off a slow start, Hull and Reid won five straight holes to go from two down to three up. Hull had three straight birdies before she eagled the par-5 eighth. Reid closed out the string with a birdie on No. 9.Me and Mel both played awesome, so it was fun, Hull said.England did not make the field for the inaugural event in 2014, which Spain won with 15 points. It was considered an afterthought coming into this week, but the strong start has the women dreaming of what a victory could do for the sport in their country.You know, if we did win, hopefully it would inspire not only girls but women and men and some young guys and boys and stuff to want to take up the club and think that its fun and want to learn how to play this game, Reid said.The second-seeded U.S. was swept by England on Thursday, but the Americans rebounded with three points against Thailand in the second session and picked up even more momentum against Japan. Piller finished her match with a birdie on 17, and Thompson beat the oncoming storm with a closing eagle on 16.We stuck with our pairings, and we just tried to stay positive with it and go out and play aggressive, Thompson said. We knew we had to make birdies and just go for it.Piller and Lewis were tied with Nomura and Miyazato before Piller rolled in a birdie from the fringe on 12. Piller got a good look at the putt when Lewis left one just short from right in front of her ball.Any time you get a free read is huge, and after she hit it, she told me what she put it at and where it ended up, Piller said.

NEW YORK -- Four years ago, an unexpected guest crashed a celebration in Manhattan so he could hang out with U.S. Olympians who were on their way to the London Games.The guest: Donald Trump.The president-elect, who also carried the torch in the lead-up to the Athens Games, has been a longtime sports fan and admirer of the Olympics. He also likes winning, which is what has attracted him, over the years, to a U.S. team that routinely dominates the medals.It would be no stretch then to imagine Trump as a natural supporter of the effort to bring the Olympics back to Los Angeles in 2024.But Olympic bidding is a contest decided more by secret handshakes than a scoreboard. Though it claims to be above politics, the International Olympic Committee is teeming with them -- and many of its 98 members factor in geopolitical considerations when deciding which city to entrust with their most sacred and valuable property, the Olympic Games.No surprise then that Trumps election sent a ripple through Los Angeles bid leaders. They recognize that if the United States is viewed as an unsteady player on the global stage when the games are awarded next September, it will give IOC members -- not historically a pro-American group anyway -- one more reason to favor Paris or Budapest over LA.We just finished our presidential election and some of you may question Americas commitment to its founding principles, American sprinter Allyson Felix told IOC members last week at a Los Angeles bid presentation. I have one message for you: Please dont doubt us. Americas diversity is our greatest strength.The U.S. government will not bankroll an LA Olympics, which makes it more of a side player when it comes to bidding.But every bid needs some amount of buy-in from the top, and for a long time, a direct appeal from a head of state was thought to be a key way to bolster a bid. Convinced this was the case, President Barack Obama flew to the IOCs final bid meeting in Copenhagen in 2009 to support Chicago in its attempt to land the 2016 Olympics. He got burned when his home city was the first one eliminated in the voting.Reflecting on that last month, Obama told New York Magazine, I think weve learned that the IOCs decisions are similar to FIFAs decisions: a little bit cooked.ddddddddddddTrump has no apparent baggage with the IOC, and, in fact, an IOC member -- American hockey player Angela Ruggiero -- is one of a handful of Olympians to appear on Trumps reality TV show The Apprentice back in the day. She got fired.But if theres any real fence-mending to be done, it might be between Trump and the LA bid itself.Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, a Democrat with ties to Hillary Clinton, said over the summer that a Trump victory could turn off voters.I think for some of the IOC members, they would say, `Wait a second, can we go to a country like that, where weve heard things that we take offense to? Garcetti said.Trump won, and operatives in the LA bid have had what theyve described as preliminary discussions with the incoming administration. They have not offered details.Assuming Trump doesnt impede LAs progress, the IOC could be faced with a choice between two leaders whose populist, nationalist messages have won over voters, while causing some international discomfort: LAs biggest challenger is Paris, and French polling shows far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has a reasonable chance in that countrys election next spring. (Budapest, meanwhile, is considered a long shot.)In considering how much weight to throw behind the Olympic bid, Trump will have to decide which vision of the movement he believes in more.The IOC, after all, has been long been portrayed as an of out-of-touch, privileged group of backroom deal-cutters not all that different from the swamp of overpaid lobbyists and career politicians that Trump said he wants to drain out of Washington.But for a candidate who won by promising to Make America Great Again, the chance to surround himself with a group of red-white-and-blue winners and bring the Summer Games back to U.S. soil for the first time since 1996 might seem like too good an opportunity to turn down.---Follow Eddie Pells on Twitter at https://twitter.com/epells Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
