CARLSBAD, Calif. -- Anna Nordqvist rallied to win the Kia Classic on Sunday at Aviara for her second victory in her last four LPGA Tour starts. Two strokes behind leaders Cristie Kerr and Lizette Salas entering the round, Nordqvist closed with her second straight 5-under 67 for a one-stroke victory over Salas. "Im very excited. I still cant believe it," Nordqvist said. "I was a couple of shots back going into today, but this morning I told myself to give it a shot and I ended up making quite of bit of birdies out there. Im very excited to have two wins this season." The 26-year-old Swede won the LPGA Thailand last month to end a five-year victory drought, holding off top-ranked Inbee Park. In 2009, Nordqvist won the LPGA Championship and LPGA Tour Championship. Projected to jump from 16th to ninth in the world, Nordqvist finished at 13-under 275 and earned $255,000. She two-putted for par on the par-4 18th, holing a 2-footer. "My hands were shaking a little, Im not going to lie," Nordqvist said. "You never know with the sun setting you see every little spike mark. So I tried not to focus on that and see the hole." The Kraft Nabisco, the first major tournament of the year, is next week in Rancho Mirage. "I really love the majors," Nordqvist said. "Its a tougher set up on course and I feel more pressure, more spotlight on the tournament and I like that. I like the test and it seems like it is going to be pretty windy next week which will make it tougher. Im very happy with the way Im playing and cant wait to tee it up." Salas birdied the 18th for a 70. "Im going to put this in the back of my mind, but know I can make putts down the stretch," Salas said. The former Southern California player is winless on the LPGA Tour. "Obviously, I cant control what Anna does," she said. "Shes been playing awesome this year and already had a win, congrats to her. Thats just golf. Sometimes things go your way and sometimes they dont. Luckily, I finished with a birdie on a good note, and off to the Kraft."" Nordqvist changed equipment and started working with instructor Jorje Parada during the off-season after considering leaving the tour. The former Arizona State player made a short birdie putt on the par-4 first hole and added birdies on the par-5 eighth and par-4 ninth to make the turn at 11 under. She also birdied the par-4 13th, par-3 14th and par-4 16th before dropping a stroke on the par-5 17th. Lexi Thompson was third at 11 under after a 68, and Chella Choi was another stroke back after a 69. Kerr closed with a 73 to finish fifth at 9 under. Park, preparing for her title defence next week at Mission Hills, had a 68 to join third-ranked Stacy Lewis (71), Se Ri Pak (69) and Eun-Hee Ji (71) at 8 under. Dori Carter, the 244th-ranked player who shot a course-record 64 on Friday, finished with a 73 to tie for 10th at 7 under. Michelle Wie had a 70 to tie for 16th at 5 under. Laura Diaz had a hole-in-one for the second straight day to become the second player in LPGA Tour history to make two aces in a tournament. Diaz aced the par-3 third hole Saturday in the third round, then holed out on the par-3 sixth on Sunday -- a shot she followed with an eagle on the par-4 seventh. She also had an eagle Saturday on the par-5 fifth. Jenny Lidback is the only other player with two aces in an event, accomplishing the feat in the 1997 Tournament of Champions. Diaz used a 6-iron Sunday on the 157-yard sixth. "I was trying to hit it a little left to right high and take a little bit off of it," Diaz said. "And, yeah, I did it. It went in." On the eagle on No. 7, she holed out from 122 yards with a 50-degree wedge, the club she used to hole out twice Saturday. Shes the first tour player to follow an ace with an eagle on the next hole The 38-year-old Diaz shot 2-under 70 in each round to finish at 2 under. Sam Koch Jersey . The 20-year-old Barkley, whose impressive form this season could earn him a place in Englands World Cup squad, was hurt in Evertons 4-0 win over Queens Park Rangers in the FA Cup on Jan. Brent Urban Jersey . Grimes signed a $32 million, four-year contract to remain with Miami. The deal, which includes $16 million guaranteed, rewards Grimes for his recovery from an Achilles tendon injury that forced him to miss almost all of the 2012 season. Griffin scored 13 of his 31 points in the final 7:05 and Dudley got 11 of his 20 points in the third quarter, leading the defending Pacific Division champions to a 112-85 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night. "Dud is a shooter. Brandon Carr Jersey . Gorges is believed to have suffered the injury while blocking a shot with a hand during Montreals win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday. The Canadiens added to their defensive depth this week by acquiring veteran Mike Weaver from the Florida Panthers. Tim Williams Jersey . He has spent much of his adult life trying to give back to his native South Sudan, the war-torn African nation the Cavaliers forward and his family fled when he was a young boy.The Premier Leagues top clubs have not held back from splashing the cash this summer, but just how valuable are the big signings so far? Before even seeing how the latest acquisitions fit into new systems during pre-season, Sky Sports Fantasy Football have had to answer that exact question while reviewing their player values ahead of the new campaign. Pick your team Who will star in 2016/17? Select your Sky Sports Fantasy Football team here. Following the launch of the 2016/17 version, here is how the top signings so far price up and how many points those players would have picked up based of their stats from last season...Nolito (Manchester City)Sky Sports Fantasy Football valuation: £10.3mEstimated points total for 2015/16: 203 Nolito celebrates his goal against Turkey in Euro 2016 Pep Guardiolas arrival at Manchester City is likely to spark a number of changes at the club and Nolito is unlikely to be the biggest name he brings to the Etihad. The forward arrives from Celta Vigo after claiming 12 goals and seven assists from 27 appearances in La Liga last season. The direct, strong dribbler found the net against Turkey during Euro 2016 and is valued at £10.3m, just one notch below Andy Carroll, Shane Long and Odion Ighalo, among others.Vincent Janssen (Tottenham)Sky Sports Fantasy Football valuation: £10.3mEstimated points total for 2015/16: 284 Vincent Janssen bolsters Tottenhams attacking options For the same price as Nolito, Fantasy Football managers could turn to Tottenham new man Janssen, who was the top scorer in the Eredivisie last season. The 22-year-old picked up four assists to go along with his 27 goals and will be looking to push the second-highest valued player in the whole game, Harry Kane, for a place in the Spurs team. Ahmed Musa (Leicester) Sky Sports Fantasy Football valuation: £10.5mEstimated points total for 2015/16: 184 Leicester City unveil new signing Ahmed Musa The pressure on Leicesters shoulders will be immense this season and those new to the club obviously have a lot to live up to, although Claudio Ranieri will be hoping hes discovered another hidden gem in the shape of Nigeria attacking midfielder Musa. Hes listed as a striker, and not a cheap one at £10.5m, but he offers value compared to the likes of Troy Deeney, Jermain Defoe or Kelechi Iheanacho. Musa scored 13 times and provided five assists from his 30 league appearances for CSKA Moscow last season. Take on your mates Prove youre the best football manager by creating a league and inviting your mates here.dddddddddddd Henrikh Mkhitaryan (Manchester United)Sky Sports Fantasy Football valuation: £10.5mEstimated points total for 2015/16: 256 Henrikh Mkhitaryan is expected to add creativity to Jose Mourinhos midfield Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be expected to provide plenty of chances for Uniteds strikers, having racked up an impressive 15 assists for Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga last season. He also picked up 11 goals from midfield, statistics that compare favourably with the likes of Yaya Toure, Philippe Coutinho and Christian Eriksen in the same price range.Michy Batshuayi (Chelsea)Sky Sports Fantasy Football valuation: £11.5mEstimated points total for 2015/16: 203 Michy Batshuayi celebrates his solitary goal at Euro 2016 Chelsea snapped up rising star Batshuayi from Marseille. The highly-rated 22-year-old can be bought by Sky Sports Fantasy Football suitors for an upper-range fee of £11.5m, which makes him marginally more expensive than Manchester United wonderkid Marcus Rashford and cheaper than Olivier Giroud. Batshuayi claimed 17 goals and nine assists in his breakthrough Ligue 1 season, while he also enhanced his credentials with a goal for Belgium at Euro 2016.Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Manchester United)Sky Sports Fantasy Football valuation: £12.2mEstimated points total for 2015/16: 411 Zlatan Ibrahimovic retired from international football at Euro 2016 After what seemed like endless speculation, Ibrahimovic finally completed his switch to Old Trafford, bringing with him a domestic record United will be keen for him replicate. The 34-year-old goes into the Sky Sports Fantasy Football roster as a premier purchase, sitting fourth at £12.2m behind Sergio Aguero, Harry Kane and Alexis Sanchez despite comfortably being involved in more goals (51) than any Premier League player last season with 38 goals and 13 assists.Lacking an out-and-out goalscorer was one of the major criticisms levelled at United under Louis van Gaal but Ibrahimovic looks guaranteed to provide that much-needed cutting edge, having claimed bags of goals everywhere he has played.
