    Friday for a 6-under 66 and a share of the lead in the TOTO Japan Classic, the
    LPGA Tours first tournament in the Tokyo area since 1991.Jutanugarn birdied six
    of the last 11 holes in a bogey-free round at fan-packed Taiheiyo Club, holing
    out from 35 feet on the par-4 18th to join Soo-Yun Kang atop the first-round
    leaderboard. The 20-year-old Thai star also chipped in on the par-4 10th.I
    played good, Jutanugarn said. I missed a few tee shots, but I made some putts
    and those chips.She leads the LPGA Tour with five victories and has a 13-point
    lead over Lydia Ko in the player of the year standings, not that shes looking
    that far ahead.Right now, no, Jutanugarn said I just try to have fun and enjoy
    every shot that I hit the ball. Thats what Im trying to do.After a week in
    steamy and stormy Malaysia, the players wore jackets and sweaters in cool
    conditions on the pine tree-lined Minori Course. Jutanugarn tied for 43rd in
    Kuala Lumpur after finishing third the previous week in China.Last week, I was
    just a little bit off with my tee shot, Jutanugarn said. Today, I just tried to
    be a little bit more positive and not think about last week and try to have more
    fun.Kang birdied three of her final four holesI had really good putting, Kang
    said. Only 22 putts.The 40-year-old South Korean player won the LPGA Tours 2005
    Safeway Classic and is now a regular on the Japan LPGA. She won the Suntory
    Ladies in June for her second Japanese title.I like Japan, people here, foods,
    and everything, Kang said.Stacy Lewis and Jenny Shin shot 67. Lewis won the 2012
    event at Kintetsu KashikojimaI think you have to be a good ball-striker to play
    well here, the Texan said about Japan. I just like being here. Its one of my
    favorite countries that we visit. I think you just kind of come with good
    vibes.Wearing a jacket and rain pants to keep warm on the sunny day, Lewis
    rebounded from a bogey on the par-4 15th with a birdie on the par-5 17th. The
    11-time tour champion is winless in 61 starts since June 2014.She tied for 33rd
    in Malaysia in her first start since September.I took five weeks off, Lewis
    said. I didnt play a lot this fall and only played two over in Asia. I just
    needed a break. It was like starting the year again.She married University of
    Houston womens golf coach Gerrod Chadwell in August.Things definitely are
    changing, Lewis said. Ive changed my schedule. Changed the way I do things. You
    just have different priorities and kind of realize there are other things to
    life other than just playing golf all the time. The schedule is going to change
    because of it, but that doesnt change how you play on the golf course. You can
    still win. You just have a little bit more enjoyment off the course.Ha Na Jang
    and Sandra Gal were two strokes back at 68 in the sixth and final event on the
    LPGA Tours fall Asian swing. Jang won last month in Taiwan for her third victory
    of the year.Chinas Shanshan Feng, the winner in Malaysia, topped the group at 69
    along with Minjee Lee, Suzann Pettersen, Cristie Kerr, So Yeon Ryu and 2008 and
    2010 winner Jiyai Shin. Lee won two weeks ago in China for her second victory of
    the year. Shin won the JLPGA event last week in Saitama.American Lexi Thompson
    birdied the final hole for a 73. In May in Japan, she won the JLPGAs World
    Ladies Championship Salonpas Cup.The top-ranked Ko had a 74, making two birdies
    and four bogeys.I didnt strike the ball very well, Ko said. The driver and
    irons, nothing was really clicking and when its like that overall its really
    hard to give yourself a lot of birdie opportunities. I struck the ball a little
    better on the back nine, but still it wasnt great.Gary Matthews caddied for Ko
    and also will carry her bag in the season-ending CME Group Tour Championship. Ko
    fired Jason Hamilton and used Sargunan Suntharaj last week in Malaysia. Hamilton
    teamed with Jang after his firing.We had a few days to work with each other and
    I think its been going pretty good, Ko said. I think when Im out there I need to
    trust him and he trusts me. Its been fine. I need to do my role better. Hit the
    ball better and all that, but its been good and hes got a lot of experience and
    he brings that to the game. Nike Blazer

    surprises among the Vezina candidates, but most of the others are standard
    top-tier performers, even if the two Hart Trophy runners-ups have never been
    quite as good as they have been through the first half of the season. ENGLEWOOD,
    Colo. -- The rematch of last years AFC championship this weekend will once again
    feature Tom Brady trying to avoid Von Millers grasp and Aqib Talibs reach.
    Theres a new wrinkle to the Patriots-Broncos rivalry this year, though.Both
    teams have players who have hurdled the long snapper to block kicks this season,
    and while odds are slim itll happen again Sunday, these players athleticism will
    be on display in the kicking game or on defense.Neither linebacker Shea
    McClellin of the Patriots (11-2) nor safety Justin Simmons of the Broncos (8-5)
    had ever blocked a kick at any level before pulling off the feat this
    season.McClellins block came Monday night and ended Justin Tuckers streak of 28
    field goals without a miss. It helped the Patriots grab the early momentum in a
    30-23 victory over the Ravens.Simmons block of an extra point at New Orleans
    last month resulted in the first game-winning 2-point play in NFL history when
    fellow rookie Will Parks scooped up the blocked ball and raced to the end zone
    for a 25-23 win.The play is growing in popularity as teams seek to either
    capitalize on the longer extra point attempts or figure its faster to go over
    the top than around stocky lines on field goal tries.Its all about the timing
    and athleticism.Arizona coach Bruce Arians was livid when Seattle linebacker
    Bobby Wagner jumped over the Cardinals snapper to block a Chandler Catanzaro
    field goal attempt in Week 7. He suggested it should be eliminated from the game
    in the name of player safety because centers who try to counter the leap by
    lifting their heads higher risk getting kicked in the face.Its bad for football,
    said Arians.Its bad for his team, countered cornerback Richard Sherman.And its
    been good for the Seahawks, Broncos and Patriots.While Wagers left shoe brushed
    the snappers back -- allowable so long as the contact is incidental -- both
    McClellin and Simmons cleared the snapper with the help of some big D-linemen
    putting their hands on the long snapper to prevent him from rising up.Denver
    special teams coach Joe DeCamillis eyes widened when the Broncos drafted Simmons
    in the third round out of Boston College after he had a 40-inch vertical leap at
    the NFL combine.Hey, I heard you can jump, DeCamillis told him.And that was the
    genesis of the play the Broncos dubbed Leaper, and the start of Simmons new
    hurdling career.The Broncos practiced the play every week, waiting foor the
    right opponent and time.dddddddddddd.Every team is different, Simmons said.
    Sometimes certain holders will give the signal and the long snapper will wait a
    second or two because they know that their signals being looked for and so
    theyll switch it up a few times. Thats why youre always careful throughout the
    game and you make sure youve got their snap count down and you just do it from
    there.When the Broncos played in New Orleans on Nov. 13, DeCamillis told Simmons
    to silently time the snap-hold-kick sequence.He did just that on two extra
    points and a field goal.I was timing it up in my head, jumping, visualizing the
    jump before it even happened, Simmons said.Simmons reported back to DeCamillis:
    each time the signal was the same, the count was identical.So, when the Saints
    tied it with 1:22 remaining and Will Lutz trotted out for the go-ahead extra
    point, DeCamillis approached Simmons.Hey, were running Leaper.Lining up off the
    line of scrimmage, Simmons timed his leap perfectly.He cleared long snapper
    Justin Drescher, then stretched his 6-foot-2 frame as far as he could.He
    squeezed his eyes.I could tell I blocked it, Simmons said, because my right arm
    was throbbing.Both Simmons and McClellin said they couldnt have pulled it off
    without help from the big guys.Adam (Gotsis) and (Jared) Crick did a great job
    with that center, Simmons said. Everyones talking about my `vert, but he was
    low. He was literally on the ground: path clear, jump right over.McClellin also
    credited his linemen for his first block, saying, (Alan) Branch and Malcom
    (Brown) did a great job of keeping those guys down.Both teams are well aware of
    each others hurdling prowess, so theyll be hard-pressed to pull it off again
    Sunday.Were very conscious of our signals and self-scouting and making sure that
    were not giving the same look every time, because it makes it that much easier
    to time up, Simmons said. And not only for the leaper but the outside guys can
    get a good jump on the ball, too. It just causes a whole list of problems. So,
    you want to make sure youre on top of it.---For more NFL coverage: and Sports Writer
