OOLTEWAH, Tenn. -- Australias Min Woo Lee waited out a 47-minute weather delay to hole the winning 3 1/2-foot birdie putt Saturday in the U.S. Junior Amateur Championship.The 17-year-old Lee beat 16-year-old Noah Goodwin of Corinth, Texas, 2 and 1 in the 36-hole final at The Honors Course. Lee became the first Australian winner and combined with older sister Minjee to become the first brother-sister tandem to win USGA junior championships. Minjee Lee won the 2012 U.S. Girls Junior.Im down in history on the USGA Junior trophy, so it feels really good, Lee said. Its probably the best Ive ever felt. Its a dream come true for me. Ive always wanted to win this tournament. I was in good form coming into it. I knew I had a good chance. It feels great to win and be on the trophy with names such as Tiger (Woods).Minjee Lee is a two-time LPGA Tour winner.I think we made history, so thats pretty cool, Minjee Lee said from the LPGA Tours UL International Crown in Illinois. I just told him at the beginning of the day to just have fun. Im glad that he came out winning, and its great for both of us.On the par-5 35th hole, Goodwin found the green with his second, while Lees approach came up just short in a grass bunker. Goodwins long downhill eagle try rolled 9 feet by the hole. Lee followed with a flop shot that stopped 3 1/2 feet from the hole. Goodwin pulled his par putt and, as Lee was lining up the potential winning putt, the USGA blew the horn because of inclement weather.After the delay, Lee converted the birdie putt.I had a few minutes to come together and just think about that putt, and think about the other putts that Ive had similar to that one, Lee said. I missed a few low, so I thought I would hit it a bit higher. It went right in the middle.Lee took the lead with a birdie in the par-3 34th hole.I couldnt have lost to a better player, Goodwin said. He pushed me and challenged me every single shot today. I played my butt off today. I played great. I got beat by a better player. In the end, thats what its all about. This tournament is just about finding the best player this week.Lee, 131st in the world amateur ranking, became the fourth international, following South Koreas Terry Noe (1994), Sihwan Kim (2004) and Andy Hyeon Bo Shim (2012).Its the best course Ive ever played, Lee said about the Pete Dye-designed Honors. Its a great match-play course. Its challenging in every way.Goodwin is ranked 35th.I learned I can play with the best (junior) players in the world, Goodwin said. I kind of already knew that, but its always nice to just have more experience doing it and everything. My wedges were great this week, and that was one of the things that kept me going the entire time. I just need to polish up my irons a little bit more, though, and I can do that over a period of time.Cheap Wholesale Nike SB Shoes .

PETERSBURG, Fla.NEW YORK -- After Russias widespread violations at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, new World Anti-Doping Agency director general Olivier Niggli says an expanding investigations staff will be on the lookout for state-sponsored cheating in other nations.It has happened in one country. I think it would be naive to think its the only country, he said Thursday during an interview at The Associated Press. We have to have our eyes really open and also make sure we act on intelligence and information we might get.A report commissioned for WADA found state-directed manipulation of drug-testing results at the Moscow anti-doping lab from at least 2011 through the summer of 2013, and the report also said Russias Ministry of Sport advised the laboratory on which findings to cover up.More than 100 Russian athletes, including the entire track and field team, were banned from this years Rio de Janeiro Olympics. Niggli, a 46-year-old Swiss lawyer who replaced David Howman on July 1, said WADA will have conversations with FIFA about testing at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.Its still sufficiently far away to hope that things will have changed and improved in Russia, Niggli said. Its very important that we be able to work with the Russians to try to set up a system that is called compliant and that will provide some safeguards so that everybody regains confidence in what is going on there.Since the manipulation of Russian drug tests became public, the sample bottle used to collect urine has been improved. The IOC also has proposed that WADA take responsibility for drug testing across sports or establish an affiliate agency to do so.Niggli rejected a suggestion by Russian President Vladimir Putin that athletes with therapeutic-use exemptions be excluded from major competitions.I dont think its meaningful. I think every human being has a right of being treated for medical conditions, Niggli said.He was hired as WADAs legall director in 2002, added the title of finance director two years later, then left for a law firm in 2011.dddddddddddd He returned to WADA two years ago as chief operating officer.He said WADA accepts the Court of Arbitration for Sports decision to cut the suspension of Russian tennis player?Maria Sharapova?from two years to 15 months. A winner of all four Grand Slam tournaments, Sharapova tested positive for the heart drug meldonium, added to the banned list this year.It was slightly surprising that at that level she wouldnt get warned properly by her entourage, Niggli said.WADA was set up by the IOC in 1999 and has a $30 million budget for next year. It already has doubled the size of its unit that scrutinizes possible violations, hiring former Interpol agent Guenter Younger as its new director of intelligence and investigations. Four additional employees likely will be added to the unit by next year.Whistle-blower is another obviously important thing, Niggli said. Even if we have an investigation department, were not the police, were not law enforcement. We have no legal means of compelling people to talk to us. Its only if people want to bring us information that I will get it.WADA believes maintaining biological passports for all athletes subject to testing will increase obstacles to doping. The passports establish baseline levels for each athlete, used for comparing with test results.Makes it a lot more complicated for a chemist to get an edge, Niggli said. You would see variations which would be totally abnormal there and would trigger some reaction.He praised MLB, the NFL and the NHL for their anti-doping programs, which are subject to labor laws and negotiated with their unions. But Niggli said, We dont have too much relationship at the moment with the NBA. ' ' '
