LADIES PROFESSIONAL GOLF ASSOCIATION

47-year-old Sherri Steinhauer shot a seven-under-par 64 to take the lead after the first round of the ShopRite LPGA Classic in Galloway Township, New Jersey.

The fact that Steinhauer is even playing golf this year is simply amazing and short of a miracle.

The veteran golfer sat out all of 2009 after surgeries on both hips.

She has a one-shot lead over Natalie Gulbis and Tania Elosegui.

Steinhauer, a University of Texas graduate, has been on the LPGA Tour since 1986.

NATIONWIDE TOUR

John Daly (PGA)

Barely clinging to a chance to continue to play professional golf due to some off-the-course issues, John Daly shot a 2-under-par 68 and is three strokes off the lead after the second round of the Nationwide Tour’s Fort Smith Classic in Fort Smith, Arkansas.

Jason Bay wins Byron Nelson Classic; 16-year-old Spieth tied at 16th

compiled from staff, wire and PGA Tour reports

22-year-old Jason Day fought through a rocky final round for a 2-over 72 that was good enough to give the Australian the Byron Nelson championship title for his first win of his PGA Tour career.

For several golf fans, the 2010 Byron Nelson will go down in history for the remarkable debut by Jordan Spieth, a 16-year-old local high school student.

Spieth, became the sixth-youngest player to make the cut on the PGA Tour.

Jason Day (PGA)

Spieth was within three shots of the lead on the final nine holes, but dropped back into a tie for 16th. He shot a 2-over 72 in the final round, his highest score of the tournament. His 4-under-276 was six strokes behind Jason Day.

Spieth, the reigning U.S. Junior Amateur champion, would’ve made $91,185.71 had he turned pro last week. However, he’s planning to wait through another year of high school, then attend the University of Texas.

Spieth has already gotten a sponsor’s exemption to play in Memphis next month. Beforehand, he’ll play an American Junior Golf Association event in Arizona next week. Then he has finals.

Day nearly withdrew on Thursday morning because he felt so ill. He ended up sharing the lead after the first round and was within striking distance all week.

Following Day, was a second place tie between Brian Gay and Jeff Overton.

Chris Gimenez came off the bench for the Clippers Wednesday afternoon at Huntington Park, and his double and two-run homer proved to be the difference in a 4-2 victory over the Charlotte Knights on Ohio Tourism Day.

The teams exchanged runs in the third inning and Columbus added another in the fifth inning, when Gimenez scored on a Shelley Duncan double. Gimenez hit a home run an inning later to put the Clippers up by three.

Steven Wright gave up a solo home run to Charlotte’s Robert Hudson in the eighth inning. It was a strange home run because Hudson took a half golfing swing and the ball traveled 328 feet into the left field seats.

Saul Rivera closed the door in the ninth to pick up his third save of 2010. The double play ball was the best friend of the Clippers during Wednesday afternoons 11:30 a.m. game. Charlotte grounded into four twin-killings which snuffed out potential scoring chances.
