XIAMEN, China, Oct. 16 (Xinhua) -- Anne Van Dam birdied two of the last three holes to win the Xiamen International Ladies Open here on Sunday for a one-stroke victory over China's Shi Yuting in Fujian province.

As Van Dam closed with a 68 for a 17-under 271 score to claim her first Ladies European Tour title, the 18-year-old Shi, who led the China LPGA Tour co-sponsored tournament in first and second round, faltered to a bogey-five on the final hole for a 69, missing an opportunity to force a playoff. Thailand's Pannarat Thanapolboonyaras (69) finished third, three shots off the pace.

Van Dam, who was tied with Shi going into the day at 13-under, carded a round that featured three birdies, including two consecutive starting from the 16th hole, an eagle three at the par-five fourth and a bogey five at the sixth hole.

"I'm really happy. This is what you practice for your whole life. To do it actually my first time being in contention is absolutely crazy," said Van Dam who paid tribute to playing partner Shi who was leading by one stroke with three holes to go.

"I knew from yesterday she's a very solid player, not many emotions. I knew it was tough going to beat her, and she had all the crowd behind her. But the only thing I could do was try to play my best every single shot and I got off to a very good start so that was really nice," said the 21-year-old golfer.

Shi, who was flawless through 53 holes, picked inopportune times to drop shots during the tournament as two of her three bogeys this week came on the last hole of the third and fourth rounds. Her round today included five birdies and two bogeys.

The Beijing teenager put down her poor showing on the final hole to bad luck.

"My first shot went wrong and my ball hit a tree and bounced back some 30 yards. It's bad luck. The lie is not good and I can't hit my approach shot with a three-wood." Shi said.

"I must say I tried my best with every single shot at the last hole, but it didn't work out. I am happy with my mental game for the whole day. I worried about nobody and really played my own game. I think I played to my standard."

The last time Arsene Wenger marked a major managerial milestone and played Chelsea [url=http://www.superstarsscontate.it/scarpe-adidas-superstar-slip-on-trainer-bianche-scontate.html]Scarpe Adidas Superstar Slip On Trainer Bianche Scontate[/url] , his team suffered a cruel 6-0 loss. On Saturday, Wenger celebrated another milestone by repaying the favor as Arsenal blanked Chelsea in a resounding 3-0 win.

The win was especially sweet, coming two days after Wenger's 20th anniversary in charge of Arsenal, but it was also vital. Chelsea had long been a thorn in Arsenal's side, having enjoyed a run of unbeaten games against the Gunners since 2011. Last season, the Blues were abject but still managed to do a double against Arsenal. Three seasons ago in 2014, in Wenger's 1,000th game in charge, Chelsea inflicted the devastating 6-0 defeat against Arsenal. So there was a little nervousness in the air before the game when some may have wondered whether Chelsea would inflict another humiliation on Wenger.

Any such concern was quickly dispelled in the 11th minute when Alexis Sanchez latched onto a flawed back pass from Chelsea center back Gary Cahill and lobbed the ball on a one-on-one against the goalie. It got better when Theo Walcott scored three minutes later and the contest was over when -Mesut Ozil scored Arsenal's third in the 40th.

There were several key factors why Arsenal won so easily.

With a fervor that has hardly been seen in the last few seasons, Arsenal players harried and tackled ceaselessly. Even the much-maligned Walcott tracked back several times and won the ball. When Chelsea players had the ball, it was common to find an Arsenal player or two closing on them right away. Oftentimes, Arsenal are the team wilting under physical play but this time they were -often the ones dishing it out.

Chelsea were not able to handle the pressure and it was made worse by how inept their defenders were in clearing the ball and coordinating among themselves. They definitely missed John Terry, though they would be really dire if their form depended on him.

Chelsea striker Diego Costa had his way with Arsenal last season but was kept well under control this time by Arsenal center backs Laurent Koscielny and Shkodran Mustafi.

Arsenal have a more robust squad than previous ones in the past several seasons. When Francis Coquelin had to come off the field with a knee injury, he was replaced by Granit Xhaka, Arsenal's big-name signing this summer. If this had happened last season, Arsenal would have to rely upon aging, limited veterans like Mathieu Flamini or Mikel Arteta.

Arsenal fans, and even Wenger, may find themselves in an unfamiliar buoyant mood, but the onus is on the team to continue winning and not get complacent or wilt. Last season, Arsenal similarly dispatched Manchester United 3-0 in early October but found themselves fading as the season went.

Stavanger Norway

Old Stavanger is part of the city centre, and possesses a single of the most charming collections of 18th and 19th century wooden buildings in Scandinavia. Stavanger Cathedral, dedicated to St Swithin, was consecrated inside the 12th century and, in spite of numerous alterations and renovations considering that, remains a well-preserved instance of Gothic architecture. Old Stavanger hosts the city museum, showcasing Stavanger’s historical past as ‘the herring capital of Norway’.

Vagen, the old harbour, has also retained significantly of its authentic character, such as the town watchman’s tower. In Stavanger Norway this is the perfect location to sit at a quayside table in summer season, eating fresh prawns and watching comings and goings within the busy harbour. Then uncover the pedestrian purchasing streets behind the restaurants and bars on the harbour’s east side, or take a leisurely evening stroll along .
