Australian Tyler Wright has taken a mammoth step towards claiming her first world surfing championship, winning the title at Lower Trestles in California. Chris Bosh Jersey .Wright is now a chance to claim the world crown at the the next event in Portugal later this month after she defeated Stephanie Gilmore in an all-Australian final on Wednesday (Thursday AEST).If Wright claims the 10,000 points for a title win in Portugal, the third-last event of the year, and second-placed Courtney Conlogue fails to reach the semi-finals, the Australian will clinch the crown.Even if that fails to eventuate, Wright is in the box seat heading into the end of the season given her 7250-point lead over the American will only grow further given surfers can drop their worst two results of the season.It doesnt really change much for me what I set out to do this year, Wright said.I set out with a goal to win every heat and win every final and learn along the way.Ill go into the next event with that same attitude.Wrights fourth victory of the year never looked in doubt after she posted a wave ride of 8.50 to open the heat, before finishing with a combined score 17.13 despite continuing to battle an ankle injury.Gilmore struggled to mount a competitive reply until late, and despite ending the heat with a ride of 9.13, she finished with a combined total of 15.13 in swells of a metre.Today was just a big smile, Wright said.I had Steph in the final and I knew I had to get on the bigger waves because she surfs so good.Surfing against Steph and growing up with Steph as someone I look up to, I still look up to her now, shes honestly my surfing idol.Earlier, Gilmore produced the highest heat score of the womens event to defeat fellow Australian Nikki Van Dijk in the semi-final.In pursuit of her first tour victory since 2014 after suffering a serious knee injury last year, the six-time world champion logged 18.60 to reach the final.I love this place, I love this wave, Gilmore said.Its so rippable. Its a skate park.Theres no real fear of getting hurt or big waves. Its just a really fun place.Meanwhile Wright claimed her spot in the final by beating the USs Sage Erickson by a margin of 0.43. Mario Chalmers Jersey . The next step is a better finish. Bae played bogey-free Friday on another gorgeous day at Riviera for a 5-under 66, giving him a one-shot lead over Aaron Baddeley and Robert Garrigus going into the weekend. Josh McRoberts Heat Jersey . -- James Young couldnt wait to apply those tweaks to his jump shot, and the first one he made against UT Arlington told him it could be a good night. http://www.heatteamofficial.com/dwyane-wade-heat-jersey/ .C. -- Kemba Walker and the Charlotte Bobcats got off to a fast start, and the Sacramento Kings were never quite able to catch up. Ryan Moore lost his bid to win the Tour Championship finale in extra holes, but picked up an important consolation prize: the fourth captains pick and the last slot on the 12-man U.S. Ryder Cup team.The matches tee off in five days in Minnesota. U.S. captain Davis Love planned to make the announcement during halftime of Sunday Night Football, -- just hours after Moore was beaten by a birdie from European Ryder Cup star Rory McIlroy on the fourth extra hole at East Lake Golf Club. But after the death of golfing great Arnold Palmer, he released the selection in a news release.Love had previously announced three captains picks -- J.B. Holmes, Rickie Fowler and Matt Kuchar, who ranked Nos. 10, 11 and 12 in the Ryder Cup standings, respectively. Moore joins Brooks Koepka as the only two rookies on the U.S. team Europe will carry six rookies.The U.S. team added the fourth pick after a PGA of America task force argued that adding a hot player at the last miinute could help it reverse course after the Americans lost three consecutive matches and eight of the past 10. Josh McRoberts Jersey. . It became known as the Billy Horschel rule after he was left off the team two years ago despite a terrific end-of-season run.Love had said he wouldnt be unduly influenced by the hot factor and had invited three potential picks to practice last week at Hazeltine National Golf Club -- No. 7 world-ranked Bubba Watson and 23-year-olds Justin Thomas and Daniel Berger.This is Loves second time as captain. He was in charge at Medinah Country Club in 2012, when a furious last day rally by the Europeans in singles matches enabled them to keep the Cup. Among the U.S. players, JB Holmes and Phil Mickelson are the only players to won a Ryder Cup experience a winning team; Mickelson in 1999 and Holmes in 2008).
