Shane Lowry enjoyed a superb finish to his opening round at the Honda Classic as he moved within two shots of the early lead in Florida. The Irishman endured an up-and-down round in the blustery conditions at PGA National, reeling off three straight birdies from the fourth only to bogey the seventh and eighth.Another shot went at the 10th and he followed a birdie at 13 with his fourth bogey of the day at the next, but he rolled in a 17-foot putt for birdie at 17 and then knocked a superb 265-yard three-iron to three feet at the last to set up an eagle which capped an entertaining 67. Shane Lowry finished birdie-eagle to sit two shots off the lead at PGA National Describing his stunning second at 18, Lowry told Sky Sports 4: I hit a great drive down there and had 215 front, 243 flag and wind howling out of the left. It was a really horrible shot, and I was just trying to get it in the bunker left or just past the bunker and try and make four. It was straight at the flag and just stayed there and it was nice.I told Darren, my caddie, I didnt fancy the shot. But like all day, theres so many tough shots, so you have to go ahead and commit to it. The whole golf course is definitely one of the toughest Ive played. All day it was mentally very tough and draining and Ill definitely sleep tonight. Lowry enjoyed the challenge of the Champions Course on his debut in the event Lowry is making his debut at Palm Beach Gardens following encouraging performances in the Farmers Insurance Open and the Waste Management Phoenix Open, finishing in ties for 13th and sixth respectively, although he could not quite breach the top 40 at Pebble Beach a fortnight ago.Reflecting on his form during the West Coast Swing, Lowry said: Its been pretty good. I did okay at Torrey Pines and played nicely at Phoenix. I felt for 54 holes, I played good enough golf to win the tournament, but on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning I didnt play great. But I finished strongly there, and Im here this week on a very tough golf course, but a golf course I actually like. Its my first time here and hopefully I can keep it going for the weekend.Meanwhile, Phil Mickelson opened with a solid one-under 69 and hinted that the Champions Course could have been rendered unplayable in the breezy conditions had the greens not been soft and receptive. Phil Mickelson felt the course could have been unplayable if the greens had been firmer It was very, very challenging, and the wind was strong, and so it was difficult to get the right club selection, and the crosswinds off a lot of the tees were very challenging, said the left-hander.But the greens were soft and that made the course playable. If the greens were firm, some of these holes, I dont know if we would have really been able to hit them. But they were soft, they were receptive and that allowed us to - if we judged the wind right - have a few putts at birdies.

O. J. Howard Buccaneers Jersey. Rob Manfred, baseballs chief operating officer, testified last week during the grievance filed by the players union to overturn Rodriguezs 211-game suspension. A person familiar with the hearing, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Associated Press on Saturday that Manfred testified the sport wasnt concerned whether Bosch distributed performance-enhancing drugs to minors because MLBs interest was his relationship with players under investigation. http://www.authenticbuccaneersstoreonline.com/Black-51-Kendell-Beckwith-Womens-Jersey/.

"We talked about wanting to be disciplined and stick with our game plan and good things will come," Draisaitl said, who had two goals for the victors. OMAHA, Neb. -- The youngsters are turning the U.S. Olympic trials into a coming out party.Nathan Adrian crashed their good times by winning the 100-meter freestyle Thursday night, earning a trip to Rio to defend the title he won four years ago.The 27-year-old sprinter who trains at California touched in 47.72 seconds, beating second-place Caeleb Dressel by just over a half-second. Dressel made his first Olympic team at 19, the youngest swimmer in the final.Last time it was old guys, like me, and now its young guys, so I guess Im just bucking the trend a little bit, Adrian said.Not to be left out was Anthony Ervin, who finished fourth and made his third Olympics at 35. Jason Lezak was 36 when he swam at the 2008 Beijing Games.I might be an old man, but Im younger than most of you, Ervin teased reporters. Being around these younger people kind of makes me feel young.Ervin tied for gold in the 50 free with teammate Gary HHall Jr.dddddddddddd at the 2000 Sydney Games. He drifted away from the sport for over a decade, selling his gold medal and donating the proceeds to charity, before rekindling his desire. He finished fifth in the 50 in London.Bent over and gasping for air after the race, Ervin couldnt stop smiling while struggling to gather his thoughts.Right now Im just feeling my body, he said. Im not going to celebrate too much yet. Theres a lot of work to be done between now and Rio because the rest of the world is badass, and we want to be bad, too.No swimmer has won back-to-back 100 free titles since Pieter van den Hoogenband of the Netherlands in 2000 and 2004.Adrian and Ervin used to train together at Cal before Ervin moved to North Carolina this year.Its always good to have Tony around, Adrian said.
