CHAMPIONS TOUR: Tommy Armour III shoots 8-under 63 to lead Iowa event

compiled from staff, wire and Champions Tour news

Tommy Armour III is always feared on the golf course by his fellow golfers. He can be out of contention and then catches fire and is back in contention. He can carry a golf tournament on his back.

After a terrible finish at the Senior PGA Championship, Armour bounced back with the best opening round in Principal Charity Classic history.

Armour matched the course record with a 8-under 63 to take a three-stroke lead Friday at Glen Oaks Country Club.

Armour’s round is a reminder of the 11-under 61 he shot in the final round of the ACE Group Classic in February. He hit 17 of 18 greens in regulation and went into the sand once, saving the hole for birdie, erasing the memories of last weekend’s final-round 78 at the Senior PGA.

Armour has finished second twice in his rookie season of 2010 on the senior tour; at the ACE Group Classic and in the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic last month. He has been very inconsistent at times, with three finishes out of the top 10.

He is followed by Dan Forsman and Russ Cochran with a 66. Bernhard Langer and Nick Price scored a 67. Fred Couples opened with an 70.

compiled from staff, wire, Cleveland Cavaliers and NBA news

In a move that has stunned the city of Cleveland, the NBA and the Cavs players, Ferry decided that the changes in the organization can move forward without him.

Ferry’s departure has come two weeks after owner Dan Gilbert fired coach Mike Brown following the team’s ouster by Boston in the second round of the playoffs. Ferry’s contract was set to expire on June 30 and he decided to leave once he found out after several meetings with Gilbert, that their ideas on the Cavs direction differed in many ways.

Danny Ferry led Cleveland through the most successful period in their history, peaking with the club’s first-ever NBA finals appearance in 2007 against San Antonio. But despite winning 127 regular-season games and having the best-record in the league, the last two years, the Cavs fell short of an NBA title.

Assistant GM Chris Grant will take over for Ferry.

The sisters earned their 12th Grand Slam title by beating Katarina Srebotnik and Kveta Peschke 6-2, 6-3.

The sisters will be ranked number 1 in doubles for the first time next week in a dynasty that began in the 1980′s as young girls.

They’re only the third women’s doubles pair to win four major titles in a row. Martina Navratilova and Pam Shriver accomplished the feat in 1983-84 and GiGi Fernandez and Natasha Zvereva pulled it off in 1992-93.

This is the Williams sisters second French Open doubles championship, with the other title coming in 1999. For several years they’ve played very little doubles, but have made plans to keep playing together at the major tournaments.

joining Kansas City’s Trey Hillman.

The Orioles (15-39) at the time of Trembley’s firing, owns the worst record in MLB. They had lost eight straight and were coming off an 0-6 road trip in which they were outscored 34-8 in Toronto and at Yankee Stadium.

49-year-old third base coach Juan Samuel was aappointed interim manager by president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail.

The Orioles got off to a 2-16 start, second-worst in franchise history and appear to be heading to 13th straight losing season.

The 58-year-old Trembley had a 187-283 record with Baltimore. To his defense, he never had much of a talent base to work with overall and in 2010, he was hampered by massive injuires, an ineffective bullpen and a struggling offense.
