    .ca! Hi Kerry, Heres an interesting one. I know its common knowledge that all
    players are responsible for their sticks. We witnessed that when Zack Kassian
    hit Edmontons Sam Gagner in the face after a missed check.

    . It was the kind of score that might make everyone else
    wonder which course he was playing. Except that Graeme McDowell saw the whole
    thing. Crouched behind the 10th green at Sheshan International, McDowell looked
    over at the powerful American and said, "Ive probably seen 18 of the best drives
    Ive seen all year in the last two days.

    . -- Whether Jeremy Hill deserves a prominent
    role in LSUs offence this early in the season is a matter for debate. PITTSBURGH
    -- John Huston shot a 5-under 65 on Thursday to take the first-round lead in the
    Senior Players Championship. Huston started on No. 10 and was even par halfway
    through his round before making a big move on the front nine at soggy Fox
    Chapel. Huston shot 5-under 30 coming in, including four birdies and an eagle on
    the short par-4 seventh. The 52-year-old Huston missed three months this season
    because of lower back problems. Fred Couples, Duffy Waldorf, Fred Funk and Russ
    Cochran were a stroke back in the third major on the Champions Tour schedule.
    Tom Pernice Jr. had three straight birdies to start his round and led a group of
    five players at 67. The start of play was delayed nearly five hours because of
    heavy rain. When the sky cleared the soft greens allowed players to be
    aggressive on the typically treacherous greens at the rolling course located a
    few miles up the Allegheny River from downtown Pittsburgh. Nobody did more
    damage than Huston. The seven-time PGA Tour winner got his round going with a
    tap-in birdie on the par-5 18th, kickstarting a stretch where he made five
    birdies in a span of seven holes, including a 40-footer on No. 6. He capped the
    run by driving the green at the 295-yard par-4 seventh and sinking the 25-footer
    for eagle to vault him into the lead. The putts gave Huston a welcome confidence
    boost after spending three months getting treatment on his back. He returned
    last week and finished 32nd at the Encompass Championship then took a couple
    days off to rest up. He only found the fairway nine times but was bailed out by
    his pputter.dddddddddddd. Huston came into the tournament ranked 54th on tour in
    putting average but had little trouble once things started falling. Couples,
    searching for his first victory of the season, put together three birdies on the
    back nine, including one on the 18th that pulled him within a shot of the lead.
    Couples finished fourth at Fox Chapel last year, faltering on the weekend to
    finish four shots behind winner Joe Daley. Points leader David Frost, who edged
    Couples by a shot at the Regions Tradition three weeks ago to capture the first
    major of his 32-year career, bounced around all day before joining a large group
    at 68. Newly minted Hall of Famer Colin Montgomerie began his Champions Tour
    career with a steady 1-under 69. The 31-time winner on the European Tour started
    a little shaky, flying his approach shot on the 10th hole over the green. He
    scrambled for par and missed just one more green the rest of the day.
    Montgomeries debut was pushed back several hours after strong overnight storms
    left portions of the 6,696-yard course under water. Twice players were told to
    warm up only to be notified of a delay before things got going just after noon.
    Officials sent players off both the first and 10th tees, invoked the lift, clean
    and place rule and moved the tees up on a handful of holes to speed things
    along. Even the little nudge forward didnt always help. Tee shots plugged into
    fairways and approach shots went nowhere, helping bunching the field. Over half
    of the 81-player field finished at even or better, creating little separation. '
