ST. ANDREWS -- Inbee Park caught bad end of the draw at St. Andrews, made worse by not having her best golf. Before she can think about a chance to make history as the first golfer to win four professional majors in the same season, Park faced a more immediate concern Friday afternoon in the Womens British Open -- how to make up an eight-shot deficit against Na Yeon Choi. "Im so far back," Park said after a birdie on the final hole to salvage a 1-over 73. "We need some tough conditions." The last time there was talk about a Grand Slam in this area of Scotland was 11 years ago, across the Firth of Forth at Muirfield, where Tiger Woods was going for the third leg of the slam. A nasty storm that arrived without warning blew him off course to an 81 in the third round and that was the end of it. This wind at St. Andrews was the strongest of the week, though nothing out of the ordinary. Na Yeon Choi played four groups behind Park and turned in a command performance, making six birdies for a 5-under 67 that gave her a one-shot lead over Miki Saiki of Japan going into the weekend. Saiki set the Old Course record for the Womens British Open with a 66 in the morning, where the only nuisance was a few bursts of showers. Chois 67 was 8.4 shots better than the average score of those who played in the afternoon, and one of only three rounds in the 60s. Conditions were so demanding that when Choi was asked to give details of her six birdies, she couldnt recall much further back than the 17th hole. "Five hours out there, this kind of weather, its hard to remember," she said. Its a round Park would like to forget, one that will make her quest even more difficult to add to her trio of majors this year. "A little bit of everything wasnt working well out there today," Park said. "I dont feel like I played horrible today. A little bit unlucky with the draw, not playing in the morning when its lovely. But thats the way it is." Her problems started on the opening hole, when her approach over the Swilcan Burn rode the wind and bounced beyond the green some 50 feet from the flag. Her chip only got halfway there, and she two-putted for bogey. Park was never under par at any point in her round. A birdie on the sixth was offset by a three-putt bogey on the 10th. A birdie on the 12th was followed by a bogey on the 13th, in part due to a bad break. On the toughest driving hole on the back nine, Park hit her best tee shot -- only for it to roll into a sand-filled divot. Her approach came up just short of the green, and she hit putter down the slope and 10 feet past the cup. Her approach to the 17th ran up the left side of the Road Hole Bunker and left her about 60 feet, and she hit another poor lag -- short and 8 feet to the right -- leading to her second three-putt of the round, and fourth of the tournament. At least she still had 36 holes -- and plenty of hope -- remaining to get back in the race. It was tough for everyone in the afternoon -- except for Choi, who had a score that looked as if she were on the New Course -- and Park isnt ruling herself out. Neither is anyone else. "The tough, gritty players can win this," Stacy Lewis said after a hard-fought 72 left her five shots behind. "Anybody under par is not out of this." Morgan Pressel took another step toward locking up a spot on the Solheim Cup team with a 70 in the morning, leaving her two shots out of the lead. She now can think squarely about the Womens British Open, and perhaps adding a second major to the Kraft Nabisco Championship she won in 2007 as an 18-year-old. Nicole Castrale, also making a last-ditch effort to make the Solheim Cup team, shot 34 on the tough back nine for a 70 and was in the group at 7-under 137 that included Jee Young Lee and Suzann Pettersen. Choi is a former U.S. Womens Open champion, so she has proved she can handle difficult conditions. What helped was having her entire team with her this week -- notably her Irish coach, Robin Symes, and his friend, who is working as a caddie. Her game management coaches, Pia Nilsson and Lynn Marriott, also are at St. Andrews. She had to handle the blustery wind by herself. "I had a daily goal, so I just tried to stick with the goal," Choi said. "It could be like par is 74 or 75 today. But I didnt care -- par 3, par 4, par 5, doesnt matter to me. I just try to play one shot at a time, and I think thats why I had great results." Even as the second round was finishing, it was clear this was a special round. Birdies were mainly available on the outward nine, and it was all about hanging on from the 12th through the 17th holes. Choi hit a 3-hybrid off the tee on the 16th and a 3-wood into the green, and she hit driver and 3-wood to finish just short of the 17th green in two. From about 45 yards, she putted the ball to 3 feet for a tough par. Park spoke about having nerves before she teed off Thursday. She conceded after the second round she felt the pressure of this historic chance when she first arrived at St. Andrews. She didnt see it as a burden, but an opportunity, saying that no matter what happens this week, it would teach her to handle any situation the rest of her career. "When you experience something big like this, some kind of big pressure like this, youre just really not afraid of any kind of pressure," Park said. "How can it get bigger than this? Anything is going to be less than this." After making birdie on the 18th, she did an interview with ESPN and then Golf Channel. After that, she stopped for a group of Korean TV reporters, who shouted instructions on where she should stand and to the two employees holding microphones. When she spoke to 10 reporters afterward, someone asked if she imagined having so much media gathered around her to ask so many questions. "Well, this is pretty much the only week Im going to get that much, so I should enjoy this moment," Park said. Sandalia Da Puma Rihanna .875,000, avoiding arbitration.

MIAMI -- Miami Marlins left-hander Adam Conley set three alarm clocks Wednesday morning to ensure he arose in plenty of time for his 12:10 p.m. start.The Marlins bats woke up too.Mired in a team slump less than 24 hours earlier, the Marlins totaled 16 hits and took the rubber game of their series against Philadelphia, 11-1.The Marlins totaled three runs in the first, including Giancarlo Stantons two-run homer.Scoring early was big, Conley said. The game is at noon. Nobody is accustomed to that, nobody can prepare for that too much. So for them to put up three in the first inning set the tone, and I was able to maintain the momentum throughout the game.Conley (7-5) pitched around eight hits and three walks to throw 6 2/3 scoreless innings.He awoke at 6:30 -- hence the alarm clocks.Never less than three, he said. Because its easy at 6:30 to turn it off, and then you wake up at 9:30. I would rather get less sleep and have a regular pregame routine and preparation.The Marlins ended a 24-inning scoreless streak Tuesday, and started fast against Philadelphia rookie Zach Eflin (3-4). J.T. Realmuto led off the first inning with a double, Martin Prado singled, Christian Yelich hit an RBI groundout and Stanton followed with his 22nd homer.Prado credited a crowd of 32,403, the Marlins largest since April. It was heavy on youth groups.The kids were loud, so they gave us a boost, Prado said. That first inning set up the whole game.Eflin, who threw a three-hit shutout against the Pirates in his last start, allowed seven runs in five-plus innings.I was leaving pitches up in the zone, he said. I didnt do my job.Dee Gordon, the 2015 NL batting and stolen base champion, should give Miamis lineup a further lift when he returns Thursday after serving an 80-game suspension for a positive drug test.Don Kelly, who began the game 1 for 22 this season, went 3 for 5 with two triples, two RBI and two runs scored. That raised his average from .045 to .148.That was fun, he said. This game is tough when youre struggling.Even Conley joined the hit parade. He had his first career sacrifice fly and a run-scoring single for his first two RBI of the year.Conley improved to 3-0 in ffive starts this month with an ERA of 1.dddddddddddd82. In five career starts against Philadelphia, hes 2-1 with an ERA of 1.42.The Phillies were one out from their second consecutive shutout loss when Cesar Hernandez doubled home a run.Realmuto, Prado and Marcell Ozuna had three hits apiece for the Marlins, who totaled seven extra-base hits and rewarded manager Don Mattinglys faith. During their slump he had said he wasnt worried.I lie a little bit now and then, he said with a smile. Nah, youre going to have sequences in the season where youre not going to look good offensively. We know we have talent and guys that are working hard, and we know thats not going to continue.SUZUKI UPDATEMarlins fourth outfielder Ichiro Suzuki did not play and remained three hits shy of 3,000. He has started only one of six games on the homestand.Well play what we think is the best lineup and move forward, Mattingly said. Its a little uncomfortable when you get this close with Ich, because you dont want to put him in there to try to do this. Youd like to see it at home, but I dont want to force it just to do that. If its a good matchup and guy needs a day off and its a good thing for the team, thats when well do it.YER OUTPhillies bench coach Larry Bowa was ejected in fourth inning by home plate umpire Pat Hoberg.TRAINERS ROOMMarlins: 1B Justin Bour (ankle) will work out with the team Thursday and then go on a rehab assignment. Closer A.J. Ramos (finger) was feeling better and may be available Thursday. RHP Tom Koehler (pectoral) was also feeling better and is expected to make his next start.Phillies: OF Peter Bourjos (right shoulder) sat out, and his status is day to day.UP NEXTPhillies: RHP Aaron Nola (5-9, 4.75) tries for his first victory since June 5 when Philadelphia opens a four-game series at Atlanta against RHP Matt Wisler (4-10, 4.92).Marlins: RHP Jose Fernandez (12-4, 2.54) hopes to improve to 27-1 at home when Miami opens a four-game series against St. Louis and RHP Michael Wacha (5-7, 4.37).
