AVONDALE, La. Cooper Kupp Rams Jersey . -- As Seung-Yul Noh exhaled and tilted his head back in a skyward gaze on the 18th green, fellow South Korean players Y.E. Yang and Charlie Wi charged toward him, spraying him with bottled beer. Noh smiled, removed his hat, held both arms out and soaked it all in. The 22-year-old overcame windy conditions and the pressure that goes with attempting to secure a maiden PGA Tour triumph, shooting a 1-under 71 on Sunday to win the Zurich Classic by two shots. He also knew he achieved another goal of providing some joy to a nation that has been reeling since a passenger ship capsized April 16, leaving 300 missing or dead. "Hopefully, theyll be happy," said Noh, who wore black and yellow ribbons on his white golf hat to honour victims of the ferry accident. While Noh, the leader through three rounds, never fell out of first, he did make his first three bogeys of the tournament and briefly fell into a tie with Keegan Bradley, the 2011 PGA Championship winner who had the gallery behind him. But Bradley did himself in with a bogey on the fifth hole and a triple bogey on the sixth. "I actually played pretty well," Bradley said. "Just made one bad swing on 6 and had a bunch of lip-outs." Noh remained steady enough-- even with wind gusting up to 30 mph -- to hold off the remaining challengers. "Very challenging today out there, especially playing with Keegan, a major champion, and heavy wind," Noh said. Noh needed a few clutch shots on the back nine, including a chip out of a grassy downhill lie on the edge of a bunker on 13, which hit the flag on a bounce, setting up a routine birdie putt. On 16, with wind in his face, Noh landed his approach 3 feet from the hole to set up his last birdie, then made a 14-foot par putt on 17 to assure a two-shot cushion on the final hole, uncharacteristically pumping his first afterward. "Yeah, that was a clutch putt," Noh said, explaining that it left him "very comfortable" on 18. Noh had made 77 previous PGA Tour starts, never finishing better than tied for fourth at the 2012 AT&T National. He took the third-round lead in New Orleans while becoming the first to play 54 holes at TPC Louisiana without a bogey. The seventh first-time PGA Tour winner in the last 10 years in the New Orleans event, Noh finished at 19-under 269 and earned $1,224,000. He was playing for the first time with caddie Scott Sajtinac, who seemed awe struck by Nohs combination of talent, wisdom and sense of calm for a player so young. "Hes going to be good," Sajtinac said. "He was unflappable. You need to be unflappable to win on the PGA Tour." Andrew Svoboda and Robert Streb tied for second. Svoboda had a 69. Streb shot 70, including an eagle on the second hole, and was one shot off the lead after a birdie on 8, but his tee shot was pushed into water by a crosswind on the par-3 ninth hole, and he made double-bogey. Jeff Overton, who briefly pulled within a stroke of Noh on the back nine, had a 70 to finish fourth at 16 under. Bradley wound up with a 75 to tie for eighth at 13 under. On Saturday, Bradley worked his way into the final group, two strokes behind Noh, with a 65. Bradley was within a stroke after the first hole Sunday, which saw Noh hit his drive into mulch right of the fairway en route to his first bogey. Bradley then birdied the par-5 second hole to tie Noh. But just a few holes later, Bradley missed a par putt from less than 2 feet, and followed that up by hitting his drive into the water on No. 6. Then, he three-putted to complete a pivotal two-hole stretch in which he dropped four strokes. While Bradley never recovered from his front-nine falter, Noh still had to ward off a challenge from Overton, who was one stroke back after his 20-foot birdie putt on 10. Overton, however, bogeyed 11 when he hit his drive into a bunker left of the fairway and his second shot over the fairway and right of the cart path. Noh, meanwhile, has the victory he needed to get into The Players Championship next month, and his first Masters next spring. "Dreams come true," Noh said. "When I started at 7 playing golf, I dreamed of always playing (on the) PGA Tour ... or playing any major, especially the Masters." Divots: Robert Garrigus, who narrowly made the cut Friday, had the best score Sunday with a 64. The round included a 374-yard drive with a tail wind on 18, which he birdied to tie for fifth at 14 under, along with two-time heart transplant recipient Erik Compton. Garrigus, who would have earned nothing had he been one stroke worse during the first two rounds, took home $248,200. ... Ben Martin, who shot a course-record 62 in the first round and was 14 under through 22 holes, was 3 over on the last 50 holes. He tied for 15th with David Toms. Josh Reynolds Youth Jersey .  Bjoergen pulled away from Swedens Charlotte Kalla on the final straight to win in 38 minutes, 33.6 seconds and defend her title from the 2010 Vancouver Games. Kalla was 1.8 seconds back. Heidi Weng of Norway took bronze. Samson Ebukam Rams Jersey . According to various reports, the striker is about to sign a five-and-a-half year extension with Manchester United worth a reported 300,000 pounds a week that would see him at Old Trafford until 2019. http://www.laramsauthoritystore.com/Authentic-Cooper-Kupp-Rams-Jersey/ . That time around, the cage is as much a part of baseballs daily routine as a beer and a hotdog is to a fan in the stands. Coaches, scouts, broadcasters and other media hover, tossing verbal barbs, telling stories and sharing laughs. Occasionally, especially in spring when the atmosphere is relatively laid back, the list of invited guests expands and on this day, Gibbons welcomed two men strongly influential in his life. AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- The Grizzlies needed one half to figure out the Pistons. Once Memphis realized that Detroit couldnt hit a jumper, the Grizzlies packed the paint on defence and outscored the Pistons by 33 points in the second half on the way to a 112-84 victory. Zach Randolph finished with 16 points and 16 rebounds for Memphis. "We were struggling against their post players in the first half, so we made an adjustment and really tried to take away the paint," Grizzlies coach David Joerger said. "They were playing zone against us, but Zach was able to get inside and disrupt things, and that opened up some kick-out shots to our 3-point shooters." Detroit lost its fourth straight and fifth in a row at home. The Pistons are now 4-10 after a 10-10 start. "This is most definitely an emergency right now," Brandon Jennings said. "It is slipping away from us. You start questioning if everyone is willing to sacrifice and do the things that we need to win games." Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks met with his players after the game to try to find a solution. "Im trying to get some insight from them, and well talk more tomorrow," he said. "When things happen like this, and we dont have any ball movement, thats on me. I have to find a way to do that." Detroit missed 16 of 20 second-half jump shots, managing just 28 points after a 56-point first half. Jennings went 0-for-7 in the half. "Right now, for some reason, were just a first-half team," Jennings said. "We arent coming out with the same energy in the second half, and weve got to find out why. This is ridiculous right now." Memphis got a big game off the bench from second-year player Jon Leuer, who had 23 points and eight rebounds in 21 minutes. "Jon did a great job last year of honing his game all through the season -- he was still working hard in March and April when a lot of players have hit the rookie wall,"t; Joerger said. John Johnson Jersey. "This year, hes taken things another step, and you can see where it has paid off. Hes got the shot fake that can set up a drive, and hes doing more things off the pick-and-roll." Memphis had six players in double figures, including 15 from former Piston Tayshaun Prince. Prince acknowledged that he gets a boost from returning to the building where he won the 2004 championship. "Its always special," he said. "You always have some incentive to hopefully go out there and get a team win. This team does a great job that when someone is facing their former team, everyone steps up to help them." Greg Monroe led Detroit with 19 points, while Andre Drummond added 15 points and 14 rebounds. But they combined for only eight points in the second half. "It definitely hurt playing like that in the second half," Drummond said. "To let them come out and do that -- thats definitely tough to swallow." The Grizzlies continued to alternate wins and losses, going 3-2 in their last five without back-to-back victories or defeats. Both teams were short-handed in the backcourt. Detroits Rodney Stuckey (shoulder) missed his second straight game, while Tony Allen (hand) was added to a lengthy Memphis injury list. NOTES: The game was played in front of a very small crowd, with a winter storm dumping up to a foot of snow in the Detroit area. The Pistons played a special video on the scoreboard during the third quarter, thanking the fans for coming out on such a nasty day. ... Prince received an ovation during pregame introductions. Prince was playing his second game as a visiting player at the Palace after being traded to Memphis last season. ... Memphis wore its home white jerseys with Detroit wearing its Sunday navy blue "Motor City" third uniforms. ... Brandon Jennings and Ed Davis picked up technicals for trash talking during the fourth quarter.
