DORAL, Fla. Brett Favre Womens Jersey . - Tiger Woods only made it through 10 holes Thursday — this time because of the weather, not his back. The debut of the new Blue Monster, and the return of Woods, received an incomplete grade Thursday when the opening round of the Cadillac Championship was halted more than two hours because of menacing thunderstorms. Harris English was among only six players who finished the round, hitting 5-iron into the par-3 ninth hole and rolling in a 45-foot birdie putt for a 3-under 69. The golf course and the worlds No. 1 player showed enough. Woods, who walked off after 13 holes Sunday in the Honda Classic because of lower back pain and spasms, said he warmed up well and felt good during the delay. His golf didnt look all that great. He was 2-over par through 10 holes, ending the day with a wedge that came up some 20 yards short of his target, leading to a three-putt for bogey from about 55 feet. "Im ready to go back out tomorrow and play well," he said. Trump National Doral, completely overhauled by Gil Hanse, showed plenty of bite on a windy, cloudy afternoon. Jason Dufner was going along beautifully for 10 holes until he struggled to find fairways in a crosswind. Brett Rumford began his round by hitting four shots before he put one in play. Three went into the water on the par-5 10th, and he started out with an 11. "Mr. Trump wanted a very tough test on the Blue Monster, and I think thats what he got," English said. The course average was at 73.8. Dufner, Hunter Mahan, Francesco Molinari and Patrick Reed also were at 3 under when the round was suspended by darkness. The 62 players who failed to finish will return Friday morning to complete the round. Russell Henley, coming off a playoff win last week at the Honda Classic, made only one par in six holes on the back nine — two birdies, three bogeys. He was in the group at 2 under that included Masters champion Adam Scott, who is in the Nos. 1-2-3 group with Woods and Henrik Stenson. Stenson might have hit the most memorable shot of the day — a cold shank from the middle of the second fairway that sailed at a 45-degree angle into bushes. Scott has a chance to replace Woods at No. 1 in the world if he wins this World Golf Championship and Woods finishes worse that fifth. Rory McIlroy got off to a blazing start with four birdies in five holes, only to end the back nine with back-to-back bogeys with a long three-putt bogey and a tee shot on the 18th that caught the edge of the water and bounded into the hazard. That might be the most penal aspect of the new Doral. Anything hit toward some of the edges feeds toward the water, and theres a lot of water in play. Not even English was immune. His tee shot on the 18th found the water, and he still had 4-iron to get to the green. But he bounced back on the par-5 first hole by smashing a tee shot so far with help from the wind and the firm fairways that he had a 7-iron left from 213 yards. He hit that to 12 feet for a two-putt birdie, and he was bogey-free the rest of the way. Dufner said he hasnt had to think his way around a golf course this much since he was at Muirfield last year for the British Open, even though the tracks are nothing alike. "This used to be a golf course where you grab your driver on every hole, swing for the fences and play from there," he said. "You cant get away with that here at Doral anymore." Dufner didnt feel comfortable with driver on the 14th, so he laid back and had 236 yards left to the par 4. He hit 3-iron and made birdie, anyway. Other times, he failed to dial it back and paid the price. "Youre not going to go through this tournament on this golf course anymore with no bogeys," he said. "Everybody is going to be making some bogeys here and there, so pretty happy with where Im at." Jordan Spieth already had three bogeys and a double bogey on the par-5 12th hole. He countered with five birdies and was even par through 15 holes. Only 19 players were under par when the round was stopped. Graham DeLaet of Weyburn, Sask., is tied for 60th place. Woods made two bogeys without a single birdie. Hell have eight holes remaining Friday morning to make up some ground. "Should be a long day for all of us," Woods said. "Hopefully, tomorrow I can get back out there in the morning, play well and work back to even par by the end of the first round, then shoot a low one in the afternoon." DIVOTS: Brendon de Jonge said he injured his right ribs in the final round at the Honda Classic. He is on pain medication, which he said makes him feel a bit light-headed. The Zimbabwean opened with a 76. He said he would take next week off and have an MRI. ... Jason Day withdrew before the round began with an injury to his left thumb, which he said was hurting him when he won the Match Play Championship two weeks ago. Reggie White Youth Jersey . A person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press the Steelers will part ways with the former Pro Bowler, a move that hardly serves as a surprise after fifth-year linebacker Jason Worilds agreed to accept a "transition player" tag last week. Ray Nitschke Youth Jersey . ROOKIE BLACKHAWKSIts unusual for contenders to get quality minutes from rookie call-ups, but the Blackhawks have been receiving more than adequate play from the likes of C Andrew Shaw and RW Jimmy Hayes over the last month.SEATTLE – The Blue Jays arrived at Safeco Field for Wednesdays series finale against the Mariners knowing the importance of leaving the Pacific Northwest with a victory. “You dont want to get swept, period, especially by a team thats ahead of you in the standings,” said Casey Janssen. “Is it a must-win? No. Is it an important game? Absolutely. Being one game back sounds a heck of a lot better than being three.” Janssens right. The term “must win” gets thrown around too much, anyway, but there is a sweeter smell to bolting Seattle down a game to the Mariners (and two to the Tigers, who beat the Pirates on Wednesday). Being three behind Seattle would carry with it a less appealing stench. With less than 40 games to go, this is one of those swing games in the standings. “I think this is a big game for us, I really do,” said manager John Gibbons. “You dont want to come in here and get swept. They shut us down pretty good the last two games. We made a little run late last night but we came up short. Its a big game for us. Its the team we came in here tied with. Its a big game for us.” After a 15-11 July, the Blue Jays are 3-8 in August. Theyve scored only 30 runs, an average of 2.7 runs per game. Thats not going to get it done. Part of the clubs recent struggles has to do with the quality of starting pitching its faced. Toronto hung close when last years Cy Young award winner, Max Scherzer, started for the Tigers on Saturday and came back to win against relievers Joe Nathan and Joba Chamberlain. On Sunday, the Jays trailed 5-0 in the sixth against David Price but slowly chipped away, tying the game off of Chamberlain with two outs in the ninth and then winning in a franchise-record setting 19 innings. Outings against Seattles “King” Felix Hernandez on Monday and Chris Young on Tuesday were less favourable. Baseballs daily grind is a blessing to players in this respect: theres no time to cling to the sorrow of a difficult loss the night before.

Say what you will about 19 innings and traveling across the country, the last two games havent gone our way. Credit those guys for their pitching performances.” Entering Wednesdays action, the Tigers and Mariners were on pace to win 87 games. The Orioles, the AL East leader, stood to achieve 93 victories. The Jays need to go 27-14 to win 90 games, 24-17 to win 87. The players focus is on winning series. “If we can take two out of three the rest of the way, well be in good shape,” said Janssen. “You dont want to get into breaking down the numbers because sometimes that can seem like a taller task than take the series, take the series, take the series and see where you end up at the end of the day.” What if the Jays lose in Seattle on Wednesday? What if they get swept in front of a hometown crowd in a faraway place? “The seasons not over,” said Janssen. No Change in Rotation Despite off days on Thursday, Monday and next Thursday, John Gibbons wont be changing the order of his starting rotation. There was some thought to giving the young kids, Drew Hutchison and Marcus Stroman, some extra down time, but that wont be happening. Stroman, Mark Buehrle and Hutchison will go as scheduled beginning on Friday when the Jays open a three-game set with the Chicago White Sox. J.A. Happ and R.A. Dickey will then start in the two-game series with the Milwaukee Brewers starting next Tuesday. wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '
