PINEHURST, N.C. -- Graham DeLaet played his first round at the U.S. Open not unlike his first round at the Masters. There were some nerves and there werent any birdies. The Canadian ended up posting a five-over 75 on the Pinehurst No. 2 course that left him 10 back of the lead. “I got off to a rough start,” DeLaet acknowledged after his round. “It might have been just a little bit of nerves. I wasnt hitting my driver great and then a couple of short-game miscues.” DeLaet started with bogeys on two of the first three holes, including a three-putt on the 12th hole from about 10 feet. Still, he didnt appear out of sorts on the course in the early going and after a bogey on the par-3 15th, he settled into a nice stretch, rolling off nine-straight pars. “I felt I got in a pretty good rhythm for the majority of the middle part of my round,” he stated. “I wasnt really able to make birdies, but I had a couple of tap-in pars that kept it stress free.” He stumbled in, however, making what he called disappointing bogeys on two of the last three holes. An errant tee shot on seven that landed in a bunker led to a bogey while on the last hole he was unable to get on the green in two. “It was disappointing to bogey seven and nine coming in because, if I was able to finish at three over, I would have been pretty happy,” he said. The stats show that DeLaet made 10 fairways – above average for the field – and 11 greens, also above the average. But on the greens, the putter didnt seem to be working. He used his flat stick 33 times, far too many, but easily understandable on Pinehursts difficult greens. “Its tough,” summed up DeLaet. “Its a tough round of golf. I felt like I handled it well. Unfortunately, I just didnt execute coming in.” DeLaets score came on a day when the field posted the lowest scoring average at a U.S. Open since 2003. The course average was 73.23 and there were more under par scores on Day One than in the opening rounds of the previous two years combined. But on a course that is playing this tough and with few birdie holes on the course, planning a comeback is not as easy. DeLaet understands that and will try to stay the course as he did in the first round. “Its just being patient,” he stated. “I was proud of myself for doing that all day even though its hard to aim a nine-iron 30 feet from the hole just trying to make four, but thats kind of what you have to do. Well see what happens, if I get a little behind the eight ball I might have to press. “Im not completely out of it. I know that a good round [Friday] will go a long way to getting back into it.” Rodney McLeod Jersey . The Oilers jumped into the free agent market early by signing defencemen Keith Aulie (six-foot-six, 228 pounds) and Mark Fayne (6-3, 210 pounds) and left-winger Benoit Pouliot (6-3, 197-pounds). Two days earlier MacTavish traded lightweight forward Sam Gagner to Tampa Bay for 6-3, 203-pound right winger Ted Purcell. Brandon Brooks Jersey . -- Brendan Leipsic had two goals and an assist and Nicolas Petan extended his point streak to 11 games as the Portland Winterhawks slipped past the Red Deer Rebels 5-4 on Saturday in Western Hockey League action. http://www.theeaglesshoponline.com/Chri ... -Jersey/.Y. - The New York Yankees made it official Saturday, announcing the completion of a seven-year deal with free-agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury and a one-year contract for returning starter Hiroki Kuroda. Dallas Thomas Jersey . Seriously. Seven years of losing has brought many different faces, players and management, to the annual pre-season get-to-know-the-team round up. Brandon Graham Jersey . Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.KAMLOOPS, B.C. -- The favourites going into the 2014 Canadian mens curling championship are the favourites coming out as the round robin draws to a close with Alberta, Manitoba and B.C. sitting one, two, three. Manitobas Jeff Stoughton and B.C.s John Morris won their final round-robin games Thursday night to finish the Tim Hortons Brier preliminary robin at 9-2. Albertas Kevin Koe sits at 9-1 with only one game left Friday morning, after a 9-6 win over Prince Edward Island Thursday afternoon. If he wins Friday, the final three in order will be Alberta, Manitoba and B.C. All thats up for grabs is the fourth and final playoff spot. Saskatchewan and Quebec, at 6-4, are leading the race but Newfoundland and New Brunswick are hanging in at 6-5. Saskatchewan and New Brunswick play Friday morning. "Theres still some hope," Quebec skip Jean-Michel Menard said of his chances to reach the three vs. four playoff game, although he has to face Alberta. One scenario could even see four teams needing to work through tiebreakers Friday, if both Saskatchewan and Quebec lose. "If both of the teams lose theres four teams at 6-5, which looks like a messy tiebreaker, so hopefully we dont have to go through that," Menard said. Saskatchewans Steve Laycock knows his path to the playoffs. "Win our last and either get some help from Alberta or play a tiebreaker," said Laycock. Morris said they will be happy to get into the playoffs through the three vs. four game. He got passed by Manitoba Thursday morning when he lost 7-6 to Stoughton in an extra end. "Were prepared to go through the three-four game were prepared to go to the one-two game, it doesnt matter," he said after his final game at night. "If we have to play a few extra games in this spiel, well get our moneys worth." Stoughton noted the strange way the tiebreaker system works that could actually change the order if Alberta loses to Quebec Friday. B.C. would move into top spot leaving Alberta in second and Stoughton in third. "Its kind of interesting, I mean Koe can actually pick who hes going to play," said the Manitoba skip and three-time Brier winner. He admitted that isnt a likely outcome, since Koe will be trying hard to win to get hammer and choice of rocks going into the page playofffs.dddddddddddd Manitoba gave up three in the first end to Ontario Thursday night but quickly gained control again to come back and win 8-6. "It seems like the theme of the week but year. It was well played again, he makes what, a double raise double? There was nothing we could do about it." In his afternoon game, Koe had a similar experience. He started with a big four in the first end and a deuce in three but gave up a single and a three to keep the Islanders close. They even managed the rare occurrence at this Brier of a steal against Koe. "We got up early and then I just threw one bad shot and gave up a three ender (and) after that they started making a lot of shots," he said. "We definitely could have made it easier on ourselves." But with a win Friday in their final game against Quebec, he gets hammer and choice of rocks for the one vs. two playoff. Its an experience Koe says he has never had, either in 2010 when he won the Brier or in 2012 when he came second. "Itll be a different feeling, not having our backs against the wall," Koe said. Stoughton started the Brier with four wins -- though none were decisive -- before losing to Alberta and Quebec. He admitted both he and third John Mead needed to pick up their game. The Thursday morning game wasnt mistake-free for Manitoba or B.C., but the last and most costly miss was made by the hometown favourites. After exchanging deuces in the first two ends, it was singles until B.C.s Jim Cotter missed a key double with his last rock in eight, letting Stoughton draw to the button for two to go ahead 6-5. "It was a real tough double," said Morris. "We missed it by a hair." Cotter was a little happier Thursday night as they beat Laycock and Saskatchewan 6-3. "We bounced back," he said. "We had a solid team game. We were definitely a little better than this morning." Greg Balsdon and Ontario were sitting at 4-6 with one game left to play friday morning after losing to Manitoba. The Northwest Territories-Yukon team of Jamie Koe was tied with Eddie MacKenzie out of P.E.I. at 3-7 with one game left, Jeff Currie and Northern Ontario were finished at 2-9 and Nova Scotias Jamie Murphy was winless at 0-10 with their final game against Ontario Friday.
