PITTSBURGH, Pa. LeBron James Shoes Deals . - 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." Cheap LeBron James Shoes . For Bergevin, the best pick is the 30th — which traditionally goes to the Stanley Cup winner. "Thats our goal. LeBron James Shoes Outlet . PAUL, Minn. . The Pope greeted Klose at his general audience Wednesday and the pair had a long chat. Klose is German like the pope, although he was born in Poland. In Sundays derby, Lazio took the lead in the seventh minute after Maarten Stekelenburg brought down Klose, resulting in the Roma goalkeeper being sent off and a penalty that Hernanes converted.At the dawn of the emergence of analytics in the National Hockey League, two franchises a€“ the Detroit Red Wings and Washington Capitals a€“ had cornered the market of puck possession dominance. While the success of those Capitals teams were something of a mixed bag come playoff time, the Red Wings were able to parlay their five-on-five dominance into two Stanley Cup appearances, and one victory in 2007-2008. Both, of course, were machines during the regular season during their peak years. And they shared one commonality: an ability to push tempo with Blitzkrieg-like efficiency, sending shot-attempt after shot-attempt in the direction of opposition goaltenders. Detroit did it with a never-ending supply of top-six forwards and the indomitable Nicklas Lidstrom on the back-end; Washington leaned on an in-his-prime Alex Ovechkin and Mike Green, though Nicklas Backstrom, Viktor Kozlov, and Alex Semin were no slouches in their own right. The thing about both of these organizations, though, is that time hasna€?t been kind. Teams around them have improved. Their core group has aged out of the league, or aged out of their prime, or have been shuffled to other teams in an assortment of deals. And, ita€?s had a demonstrable effect on their offensive output. Take, for one example, the below table. It shows the successes of each team and their ability to generate five-on-five shot-attempts, per sixty minutes. YEAR DET CORSI/60 LG RANK WAS CORSI/60 LG RANK 2007-08 56.7 3 58.4 1 2008-09 59.8 4 62.2 1 2009-10 58.1 5 61.3 2 2010-11 59.3 4 57.1 8 2011-12 56.8 8 52.9 17 2012-13 55.1 11 53.5 15 2013-14 51.7 22 51.9 20 That is a significant loss of goal-scoring opportunities for both teams. Of course, we can replicate this table to illustrate just that a€“ the drop-off in goal-scoring the teams have experienced over the years, almost certainly the result of fewer chances attacking the net. YEAR DET G/60 LG RANK WAS G/60 LG RANK 2007-08 2.42 7 2.40 9 2008-09 2.77 1 2.48 9 2009-10 2.15 23 3.29 1 2010-11 2..

Therea€?s less to go around these days, and ita€?s largely because both teams are spending less time in the attacking third. In the last two years, we have seen both Detroit (2012-2013) and Washington (2013-2014) finish near the bottom of the entire league. This, of course, felt unfathomable a few years ago. With Detroit, the problems seem to be tied up moreso in the aging process of the core group. Of the regular skaters from Detroita€?s 2007-2008 Stanley Cup winning team, only five players exist on the current roster: 36-year-old Pavel Datsyuk, 33-year-old Henrik Zetterberg, 34-year-old Johan Franzen, 35-year-old Dan Cleary, and 33-year-old Niklas Kronwall are active. Detroita€?s done a considerably impressive job getting some of their younger talent competing at the NHL level. Ultimately, ita€?s been impressive that Mike Babcocka€?s been able to get the right side of the shot-share with older rosters over the past few years despite the slowing attack. Ita€?s one of the biggest reasons why hea€?s going to be perhaps the most desirable asset on the free market come next summer, his contract set to expire at the end of this season. On the Washington side, the argument has been routinely made that the organization was too quick to pull the trigger on Bruce Boudreaua€?s release. Boudreaua€?s now flourishing with his up-tempo, heavy-forecheck style in Anaheim; Washingtona€?s juggled through an assortment of coaches since his exodus, none of whom have been able to capture his magic with the current roster. Can Mike Babcock and the newly-appointed Barry Trotz recapture the magic of yesteryear? It seems implausible considering the teama€?s current trends, but to each organizationa€?s credit, they have been aggressive at restocking the cupboards. Detroita€?s made a concerted effort to get young players like Gustav Nyquist and Tomas Tatar into bigger roles. Washingtona€?s expecting big seasons from their youngsters, too a€“ Andre Burakovsky and Evgeni Kuznetsov both made the team out of camp, and could help turn things around on the offensive end of the rink.
