Matt Jones and Bubba Watson share the lead after one round of play in the PGA Tour’s Zurich Classic in Avondale, Louisiana.

Jones chipped in from 57 feet on his final hole to end up with a 6-under-par 66 and a share of the lead.

Watson made a 32-foot eagle putt on the par-5 11th hole and had six birdies and two bogeys at TPC Louisiana.

The 2010 winner of the tournament was Jason Bohn. The prize money is $6,400,000.

There have been several two-time winners of the Zurich Classic including Byron Nelson, Billy Casper, Tom Watson, Chip Beck and Ben Crenshaw.

Bengals and Terrell Owens reach agreement on contract

The Cincinnati Bengals reached agreement on a contract Tuesday with wide receiver Terrell Owens. He’ll have a one-year deal paying $2 million with a chance to make an additional $2 million in performance bonuses.

Cincinnati was his first choice, giving him a chance to team with close friend Chad Ochocinco, who has already given the pair a nickname, “Batman and Robin”. The Bengals made the offer on Monday and Owens accepted the next day.

Bengals players are required to report for the start of training camp on Wednesday in Georgetown, Kentucky. Owens is expected to show up when workouts begin on Thursday and sign his contract.

The 36-year-old Owens caught 55 passes for 829 yards and five touchdowns with the Buffalo Bills last season, his least productive full season since early in in his career with San Francisco.

Cincinnati is trying to upgrade their passing game that was one of the worst in the NFL last season, ranking 26th. They won the AFC North by relying on a tough defense and their tough and productive running attack. Their receiving corps is now top-notch by adding Antonio Bryant, Terrell Owens, Matt Jones and the drafting of possession receiver Jordan Shipley out of Texas.

Bengals owner Mike Brown offers Terrell Owens a contract


Cincinnati Bengals owner Mike Brown over the past several years has become the new Al Davis of the NFL. Meaning that he will give troubled athletes a second and third chance to get their career back in order.

Brown kept bringing wide receiver Chris Henry back on the team. Henry was arrested five times and died last season in by falling out of his fiancee’s truck.

In the past two years, the Bengals have signed running back Cedric Benson, running back Larry Johnson and Matt Jones, all were let go by other teams for off-the-field troubles and issues.

Now, Cincinnati is looking to add Terrell Owens to its already deep receiving corp.

Brown said Monday that the team has offered a contract to Owens and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus. The Bengals passed on the chance to sign the 36-year-old after a tryout back in March. But in recent days, have given it more thought now that he is still available.

If Owens accepts the offer, and he has been given a deadline of Wednesday to do so, he would join his good friend, Chad Ochocinco on the Bengals.

The Bengals have also signed receiver Antonio Bryant and given him a four-year deal a few months ago.

The renewed interest in Owens has been that Cincinnati quarterback Carson Palmer has been working out with T.O. in California, and called both Mike Brown and head coach Marvin Lewis about trying to give a second thought to signing him.

Steve Stricker sets 54-hole record at PGA Tour John Deere Classic

compiled from staff, wire and PGA Tour news


43-year-old Steve Stricker has had quite a week at the John Deere Classic tournament in Silvis, Illinois.

He has broken two PGA Tour records and is looking to break more as the final round starts on Sunday.

He has a six-stroke lead after a 9-under-par 62 on Saturday.

Stricker’s magical round left the defending champion of the tournament at 25-under 188, the best 54-hole score in PGA Tour history. He also has the best three-round score in relation to par. With a 65 or lower on Sunday, he would break the 72-hole record of 254.

Stricker was such a dominating force on the TPC Deere Run course that Jeff Maggert shot a 63 and still lost ground on the lead. Paul Goydos, played well but also made up no ground.

Former PGA Champion Shaun Micheel also shot a 63 and found himself 10 strokes off the lead. Rocco Mediate made  a hole-in-one and an eagle en route to a 64 but trailed by 14. Matt Jones moved into fourth place with a 66 that has him nine strokes back.

Paul Goydos with 59 puts himself into PGA history books

compiled from staff, wire and PGA Tour news

There have only been four golfers to shoot a 59 on the PGA Tour.

Al Geiberger was the first one to do it on the PGA Tour, back in 1977. Chip Beck did it in 1991 and David Duval put his name on that list in 1999.

And the latest is a relatively unknown golfer by the name of Paul Goydos.

Paul Goydos (PGA)

The 46-year-old, considered by many to be a journeyman with only two PGA wins, shot a 12-under-59 Thursday at the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Illinois.

Goydos played well; extremely well. 12 birdies, no bogeys, and just 22 putts and he led by only one stroke after the first round.

Defending champion Steve Stricker was shooting a 60. Those two golfers accounted for the two lowest scores in a single round of a PGA event.

The TPC Deere Run course was softened due to three days of rain and most of the golfers expected low scores but not a 59 or 60.

Michael Letzig, Matt Jones, Aaron Badderley and James Nitties all finished at 7-under 64. Jay Williamson, Daniel Chopra, Scott McCarron and Charley Hoffman finished with 65′s.
