PITTSBURGH, Pa. Mens Kyrie Irving Shoes For Sale . - Joe Durant is trying desperately to hold onto his old job on the PGA Tour. If it doesnt work out, his new gig is looking more promising all the time. The Champions Tour rookie shot a 6-under 64 on Thursday in the first round of the Senior Players Championship, making seven birdies against one bogey to join David Frost and Doug Garwood atop the leaderboard at defenceless Fox Chapel. Bernhard Langer, Corey Pavin, Larry Mize, Steve Pate, Olin Browne, Bart Bryant, Peter Fowler and Wes Short Jr. shot 65. Colin Montgomerie, the Senior PGA winner last month, opened with a 5-under 30 on the front nine before fading to a 69. The 50-year-old Durant, a four-time winner on the main tour, is trying to split time between both circuits this summer. The pressure to earn enough money while making limited PGA Tour starts has been draining. In a way, the 50-and-over tour is allowing him to recharge. "Im trying so hard to make magic happen in one week (on the PGA Tour) and its just not working out very well," Durant said. Durant tied for 31st last week in Connecticut in the PGA Tours Travelers Championship, a finish he believes should have been higher had he not slogged through the second and third rounds. "It easily could have been a top-10 week if I had just managed my game a little better Friday and Saturday," Durant said. There were no such issues Thursday. Durant holed out from the greenside bunker on the par-3 third, kick-starting his round. He ended it with a sliding left-to-right birdie putt on the par-5 18th for his 64, matching his best round since joining the Champions Tour after turning 50 in April. "It all comes down to making putts," Durant said. "If you make putts, the game is real easy. If youre burning edges, its not that easy." Frost and Garwood quickly joined Durant atop the leaderboard. Frustrated after a middling 39th-place finish at the Encompass Championship last week in Illinois, Frost ditched the shafts on his irons for the first time in four years, trading them in for something that offered a little more forgiveness. The move paid off with a near flawless round in which he missed only one fairway and three greens. "I almost want to kick myself for not (switching shafts) earlier," Frost said. Garwood, a two-time All-American during his college career at Fresno State, has finally found a home on the Champions Tour after spending most of his adult life on pro golfs fringe. He never played in a PGA Tour event and sold insurance among other things before trying to give the 50-and-over circuit a shot last spring. After some initial struggles, it is paying off handsomely. Garwood lost a playoff four weeks ago in the Principal Charity Classic and backed it up with a runner-up finish last weekend. Garwoods round included three straight birdies on Nos. 12-14, including a 35-footer on the par-4 14th. His birdie attempt on the 18th stopped one roll short of giving him the lead. Being near the lead is becoming familiar territory for Garwood, though he has done his best to downplay his steady rise. "Ive always believed the lower the expectation, the easier it is to meet," he said, laughing. "Theres enough pressure just being out there with all the hoopla. So I just go out and try to shoot my best ... trying to shoot 64, it just kind of happens." Defending champion Kenny Perry, looking for his fourth major title in the last year, failed to take advantage of the prime scoring conditions. Playing his eighth tournament in nine weeks, Perry shot an even-par 70. Perrys score was actually one better than the 71 he posted in the opening round last year. Perry responded last June by shooting a combined 20 under over the final 54 holes to edge Fred Couples and Duffy Waldorf for the first major pro title of his lengthy career. The 53-year-old Kentuckian, the Tradition winner last month in the first senior major of the year, doubted Fox Chapel would be as generous this time around, but with wide open fairways and damp greens, it wasnt a fair fight. More than half the 81 players finished at even par or better. "Its going to take a lot of birdies this week with the conditions as they are right now," Durant said. "Youve just got to keep the hammer down." Nike Kevin Durant Basketball Shoes .

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Denver Broncos are content to wait for running backs Montee Ball and C.J. Anderson to heal. Coach John Fox said Saturday he doesnt plan to bring in any free agent running backs in light of Balls appendectomy or Andersons concussion. "We are always looking to improve the team. That goes on 24/7, 365, really, but right now there is nothing pressing," Fox said. "We feel pretty good about the group we have." That group includes just one back whos ever played in an NFL game, Ronnie Hillman, plus three undrafted free agents in Juwan Thompson, Brennan Clay and Kapri Bibbs and first-year pro Jerodis Williams, who played for Minnesota in last years preseason. Anderson, third on the depth chart, is being treated under the conditions of the NFLs concussion protocol after getting knocked from Denvers 21-16 win over Seattle on Thursday night. He was sent home from the Broncos complex Saturday. "He had little headaches, which is very normal at this stage," Fox said. Ball returned to the Broncos sideline five days after undergoing his appendectomy and said he was feeling good but didnt know when hed be back in full pads. Ball said he expects to begin running next week, although the Broncos dont plan on using him until the season opener Sept. 7 against Indianapolis. "We saw plenty of him a year ago and saw plenty of him in the off-season," Fox explained. Ball said he awoke at 2:30 a.m. Monday with a sharp pain in his right side. He was under the knife 12 hours later. He said hes lost six pounds, dropping to 209, but is starting to regain flexibility in his trunk. Ball called his operation a &quoot;quick, painless procedure," but said it "restricted a lot of my movement early on. Kyrie Irving Shoes 3. I feel great now. Right now Im able to move around but Ill listen to the training staff and my body and Ill come back stronger." Ball said he felt fortunate the appendicitis announced itself now, before it could burst and before the Broncos get into games that count. "Obviously, its great that it happened now than in September. Very unfortunate situation for me but right now Im looking up and feeling great and I get to do some running next week," Ball said. The Broncos are counting on Ball, who ran for 559 yards and four touchdowns last year as Knowshon Morenos backup, to help them balance out their pass-heavy offence as the starter in 2014. Ball said he has no timetable for his return to full pads, saying, "Im just listening to my body and listening to our great training staff. ... No reason to rush." He added that he appreciated all the people that visited him in the hospital, including his position coach, Eric Studesville, and Broncos president and CEO Joe Ellis. Asked if Ellis brought him cards and candy, Ball said, "No, just some wise words that I needed to hear. He just said, Were praying for you, were all looking out for you if you need anything. Thats what helped me out a lot." Notes: WR Emmanuel Sanders (thigh) was held out of the morning practice. Sanders didnt practice Tuesday but started against Seattle, logging 20 snaps. ... DE Malik Jackson was excused for personal reasons. ... DE Chase Vaughn (right knee), DE Greg Latta (right hip) and CB Louis Young (groin) were held out again.
