NASSAU, Bahamas -- If he were keeping score -- which he wasnt -- Tiger Woods would have tallied a loosely recorded 2-under-par 70 on Wednesday at Albany Golf Club in the pro-am that precedes the Hero World Challenge.Two eagles, two bogeys and no birdies summarize the five-hour round that included four amateurs on a muggy, windy Caribbean day.Pro-ams are standard fare preceding tournaments, and Woods has almost always treated them as a leisurely way to get a look at the golf course and greens, without much grinding. That was the case Wednesday, and he acknowledged that it was a serious endeavor for only about 12 of the 18 holes.I felt good with pretty much everything, he said. I was be able to hit all the shots I needed to hit. The wind was definitely pumping today, and it was good to see it in this direction. The time since Ive been here on Saturday, its been blowing out of the other direction, so its good to see it out of this direction.Woods has been dedicating the time to get ready for his first tournament in 15 months and said he would make his way to the putting green later in the afternoon.The Hero World Challenge, which benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation and has a field of just 18 players, is Woods first tournament since August 2015, when he tied for 10th at the Wyndham Championship before having two back procedures.A scheduled return in early October at the Safeway Championship was canceled just days prior when Woods felt his game was not ready.The two eagles Woods made were on the third and ninth holes and were set up by excellent tee shots. He missed just one fairway during the round. The best shot of the day was his tee shot at the 210-yard par-3 eighth, which was playing into a strong wind.Woods hit a version of his old stinger shot and saw the ball cut through the wind and come to rest behind the hole, about 10 feet away. The fact that he missed the putt didnt seem to faze anyone.Thats as good as he can hit a golf ball, I would say, said Joe LaCava, his caddie. That was solid.And that was how LaCava described the round in general. It was pretty solid, a good effort, he said. And it was in some tough conditions.Said Woods, who expects to be nervous when the first round begins: Ill be focused; Ill be ready. Nike Air Max Skor Billigt . Then the Pacers gave Oladipo and his Orlando teammates the cold shoulder. Paul Georges buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of the third quarter spurred a 21-4 run, finally sending Indiana past the Magic 97-87 in a tougher-than-expected opening night matchup.

Hi Kerry, Heres an interesting one. I know its common knowledge that all players are responsible for their sticks. We witnessed that when Zack Kassian hit Edmontons Sam Gagner in the face after a missed check.

WASHINGTON -- The Washington Nationals have cut reliever Jonathan Papelbon, who rarely pitched after the NL East leaders recently traded for new closer Mark Melancon.Papelbon was released Saturday. The Nationals needed a roster spot to promote righty Reynaldo Lopez to start against Atlanta.There wasnt a real fit anymore, Nationals manager Dusty Baker said. Didnt know where to use him.Papelbon, ninth on the career saves list with 368, only threw 2 2/3 innings after his final blown save on July 26. The Nationals got Melancon a few days later from Pittsburgh.The 35-year-old Papelbon, suspended by the Nationals last September after grabbing NL MVP Bryce Harper by the throat during a dugout skirmish, is now a free agent and can sign with any team.The Nationals are responsible for the remainder of his $11 million salary this year.Papelbon has converted 19 of 22 save chances this season, and is 2-4 with a 4.37 ERA.The six-time All-Star had trouble in July, giving up eight runs and seven hits in three outings, before the Nationals got Melancon from the Pirates. Melancon immediately took over the closers role.Washington acquired the fiery Papelbon in July 2015 to replace Drew Storen as its closer. The Nationals, favored by many to make the World Series, faltered down the stretch and misssed the playoffs, and Papelbons altercation with Harper became a symbol for the teams frustration.ddddddddddddOnce the Nats got Melancon, Papelbon had no set spot in their bullpen.Baker called Papelbon a professional in response to the demotion. Teammates pushed back against any notion of the recent situation or last seasons incident with Harper causing locker room issues.Hes not a distraction whatsoever, ace Max Scherzer said. He comes in to play every single day, he works his absolute tail off and he competes on the mound for us.All that stuff, last year ... just a media circus. We were 100 percent behind him. We understood all his intentions. He was great for our team. He was great for everybody in this clubhouse. To sit here and say hes a bad teammate or anything like that, its garbage to me, he said.Papelbon made his major league debut with Boston in 2005. In 2007, he pitched 10 2/3 scoreless innings in the postseason and helped the Red Sox win the World Series.He was a great teammate. He was popular with his teammates, Baker said. We wish Pap the best and he wished us the best. He wanted us to win (the World Series). Those were his parting words. ' ' '
