By John O'Brien SINGAPORE, March 6 (Reuters) - Park In-bee curled in a three-metre birdie putt on the final hole to maintain a share of the lead at the halfway stage of the HSBC Women's Champions, the Korean going bogey-free for the second straight day to reach nine-under for the tournament. The world number two and overnight leader overcame a frustrating day with the putter by picking up three birdies over the final five holes to card a three-under 69 and join big-hitting Spaniard Carlota Cigana at the top of the leaderboard. Cigana made the most of her prodigious length off the tee to offset two bogeys with eight birdies for a best-of-the-day six-under 66, two strokes clear of fellow Spaniard Azahara Munoz, who is alone in third place on seven-under. World number one Lydia Ko remains on course for a hat-trick of wins following recent triumphs in Australia and her native New Zealand, the 17-year-old carding a two-under 70 to join Stacy Lewis, Karrie Webb and Jenny Shin on six-under overall.

Head Coach Steve Kerr of the Golden State Warriors has a word with Stephen Curry during a NBA game at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, on December 25, 2014Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr thinks guard Stephen Curry deserves Most Valuable Player consideration, but he won't campaign for the honor. "I think he deserves it, but I don't think it's our job to promote it," Kerr said Thursday in Oakland, California, where the Warriors will host Dallas on Friday. We've got a lot of work to do," added Kerr, comparing his team's focus on a strong push to the post-season to Houston general manager Daryl Morey's public comments hyping Rockets forward James Harden's claim to the award. Last week, Morey said during a conference on sports analytics at the Massachusets Institute of Technology in Boston that Harden was MVP material.


Russell Westbrook (R) of the Oklahoma City Thunder is fouled by Tony Snell of the Chicago Bulls at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois, on March 5, 2015E'Twaun Moore's go-ahead three-pointer with 2.1 seconds remaining helped Chicago withstand another monster night from Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook in a 108-105 NBA triumph over the Thunder. Moore, whose on-court time has been boosted by the Bulls recent spate of injuries, scored 13 of his career-high 19 points in the fourth quarter, on Thursday. Fellow reserve Nikola Mirotic, an NBA rookie from Montenegro, added 14 of his 216 points in the final period while Pau Gasol and Mike Dunleavey contributed 21 points apiece for Chicago. The Bulls notched their third straight win, despite trailing by as many as 16 and by 10 with less than nine minutes left to play.


MLB: Chicago Cubs at San Francisco GiantsSan Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence suffered a fractured left forearm after being struck by a pitch on Thursday and will be out of action for at least six weeks. Pence, a valuable member of the team's World Series defending roster, was hit in a Spring Training game by Chicago Cubs pitcher Corey Black. Pence's absence will break a streak of 383 consecutive games played, the longest active stretch in the Major Leagues. Pence played in the full 162 games the past two seasons and hit .277 with 20 home runs and 74 RBIs in 2014. (Writing by Jahmal Corner in Los Angeles. ...

Governor Walker speaks at the 42nd annual Conservative Political Action ConferenceBy Emily Flitter NEW YORK (Reuters) - Asked last week about his agenda if elected, presumptive Republican presidential candidate Scott Walker began: "Should I choose to be a candidate..."     Then he added with a grin: "My lawyers love it when I say that."     Like the other would-be Republican candidates who took the stage over three days in Washington at the Conservative Political Action Conference, the Wisconsin governor studiously avoided mentioning any plans for the 2016 presidential election.     The pantomime is crucial – it allows candidates to work closely with their funding organizations to rake in big money donations without breaking campaign finance laws. Once they launch their campaign or even say they are “testing the waters", they face far tighter restrictions on their fundraising.


A morning commuter carries an umbrella through the cold and snow during the morning rush on Wall Street in New York's financial districtBy Ian Simpson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A late winter storm pummeled the eastern United States on Thursday ahead of a cold front, canceling almost 5,000 flights as Kentucky dug out from up to 23 inches (58 cm) of snow that had stranded hundreds of drivers. Winter storm warnings and advisories were in place from the Middle Atlantic states into southern New England, as well as from the lower Mississippi Valley to the southern Appalachians, the National Weather Service said.


A crowd of about 200 people and union members gather in frigid temperatures in downtown MilwaukeeBy Brendan O'Brien MADISON, Wis. (Reuters) - Weary Wisconsin lawmakers debated into the early hours of Friday a measure supported by Republican Governor Scott Walker that would stop private-sector workers from having to join a union or pay dues as a condition of employment. Opponents call the draft law a thinly disguised assault on organized labor that will drive down wages, and security staff had to clear the Assembly gallery on Thursday after protesters temporarily halted the debate with chants. Wisconsin would be the 25th state to enact such a law and Walker's history of pushing back against union rights has bolstered his credentials as an early favorite in the battle for the Republican nomination in the 2016 presidential election. "This is about freedom ... it's time for right-to-work in Wisconsin," said Republican Representative Dean Knudson.
