ORLANDO, Fla. - Adam Scott keeps putting his name in the Bay Hill reco

ORLANDO, Fla. - Adam Scott keeps putting his name in the Bay Hill record book, each round moving him closer to another handshake with The King. One day after Scott opened with a record-tying 62 in the Arnold Palmer Invitational, he hit his stride around the turn Friday with five birdies in an eight-hole stretch to leave everyone else far behind. Even with a three-putt bogey on his final hole, Scott still had a 4-under 68 for a seven-shot lead. He was at 14-under 130, matching the 36-hole record at Bay Hill first set by Tom Watson and Andy Bean in 1981. And his seven-shot margin at the halfway point shattered the previous record held by Tiger Woods in 2002 and Paul Azinger in 1988. Scott sounds like hes not the least bit satisfied. "The challenge might be just to start again and try and play a great 36 holes," he said. "Start fresh and try to be the leader after the next 36." That would merit a visit with Arnold Palmer, the tournament host known simply as "The King" in golf circles. Scott has spoken glowingly all week about his first invitation to Bay Hill when he was 20. Walking off the first green, Palmer was in a cart to greet him with a handshake, and Scott was amazed that Palmer knew his name. Now hes the Masters champion, and the 33-year-old Australian is playing like one. J.B. Holmes (69), Chesson Hadley (68) and Francesco Molinari of Italy (70) were tied for second at 7-under. Keegan Bradley had the low score of the blustery second round with a 67, putting him in a group at 138 that included Brandt Snedeker (71) and Jamie Donaldson of Wales (71). "I think Im 10 behind and playing pretty well for two rounds," said Snedeker, who was off by two. "Hes playing pretty phenomenal. Hes going to be a tough guy to catch. A guy that hits it as good as he does and seems to have a complete game like he has, and the way hes playing now, hes not going to come backward. Seems like an awfully special week if you can get close to him." Scott played in the afternoon, when the course began to get firm under two days of full sunshine, and the pace on the greens began to quicken. No one ever got closer than his three-shot lead to start the round, though there were two pivotal moments. He holed a 15-foot par putt on the first hole to calm his nerves, and he hit a gorgeous shot out of the rough from 167 yards and made a 12-foot birdie on the ninth. He went to the back nine 1-under par for his round, and he took off from there. Scott hit a 7-iron to 4 feet on No. 11, got up-and-down for birdie on the par-3 12th, nearly holed a tough chip from behind the 14th green to save par, and then made consecutive birdies with a 30-foot putt on the 15th and a 7-iron to pin-high for a two-putt birdie on the par-5 16th. He only made it look easy. There were three rounds in the 80s, including by U.S. Amateur champion Matthew Fitzpatrick. U.S. Open champion Justin Rose, playing in the same group with Scott, had a 79 and missed the cut for the first time in a regular PGA Tour event since The Players Championship last May. "This course will really start to bare its teeth," Scott said. "Ive got to take in the attitude of starting over again and trying to play a really hard 36 holes. And hopefully, if I can I can keep striking the ball like I am, Ill give myself enough chances for birdie — and hopefully, more birdies than bogeys." At one point, caddie Steve Williams was some 275 yards down the left side of the fairway on the par-5 16th. His boss was barely visible back on the tee, but Williams watched his swing and instantly said, "Perfect." And that it was, 325 yards right down the middle. Scott missed only two fairways and has taken just 52 putts over the first 36 holes. He was in no mood to celebrate just yet. For one thing, he is still recovering from being sick. His energy was better Friday, though he could barely talk above a whisper during a brief interview with Golf Channel before his round. And the Australian knows how a big lead can get away, even on the final day. He had a four-shot lead with four holes remaining in the 2012 British Open when it all went wrong — four straight bogeys — and Ernie Els walked off with the claret jug. Thats a distant memory for Scott, who takes that green jacket from Augusta National with him just about everywhere he goes. "Seven shots over two days is not enough," Scott said. "I dont think you can ever be enough in the lead, to be honest." DIVOTS: Ryo Ishikawa had a 74 and was among those in the group at 5-under. The Japanese star has been working hard on his English. He used the words, "sucker pin," in an interview, and then chatted comfortably with Jimmy Roberts of NBC Sports for about five minutes. ... Southern Amateur champion Zachary Olsen made the cut. ... Sam Saunders, the grandson of Arnold Palmer, had a 71 and was in a tie for 16th. ... Paul Casey made a 7-foot bogey putt on his last hole for a 79 to make the cut on the number at 2-over 146.

Blue Jackets director of hockey operations John Davidson and general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said on Wednesday the team has made offers of $6 million for two years, $32 million for six and $46 million over eight years but each one was refused by the restricted free agent centre and agent Kurt Overhardt.NEW YORK -- So much stuff happened, Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon lost track. Especially after he got ejected. "How many innings was that?" he wondered. Wil Myers and the Rays broke loose in the 14th inning while holding Derek Jeter to the worst hitting performance of his career, outlasting the New York Yankees for a wild 10-5 win that ended at 12:57 a.m. Saturday. Jeter went 0 for 7 for the first time and grounded out with the bases loaded to finish the 13th. Yankee Stadium was nearly empty when the game finally ended after 5 hours, 49 minutes. "I dont even remember the first four of them," said Jeter, eighth on baseballs career hits list. "Its one of those days, know what I mean? Some days when you think youve seen it all, theres something new." The late innings indeed saw a bit of everything: Rallies by both teams, a wild rundown featuring seven throws and two calls overturned. "It was a crazy game," Maddon said. The Rays also spent time trading gloves when they went to a five-man infield in the 13th. The switching positions led to a most strange putout: Brett Gardner grounded out and it was officially scored as 3-9 -- first baseman Sean Rodriguez to the right fielder, Myers. During a meeting on the mound to realign everyone, the Rays offered a little advice to Myers. "We just told him to catch it if it comes to you," winning pitcher Heath Bell. Myers got three of the Rays 20 hits, and put them ahead 6-5 against Chris Leroux (0-1). Rodriguez doubled home a run, setting up RBI singles by Brandon Guyer, Yunel Escobar and Ryan Hanigan. Bell (1-1) dodged all sorts of trouble, pitching 2 1-3 scoreless innings for the win. "There were so many unlikely things that we were able to work through," Maddon said. Desmond Jennings homered as the Rays matched a season best with a three-game winning streak. The string started with a day-night doubleheader sweep Thursday in Boston, and led into another full day off play.dddddddddddd Brian McCann homered as New York lost its third straight in Joe Girardis 1,000th regular-season game as manager. Jacoby Ellsbury lined a tying single with two outs in the bottom of the ninth for the Yankees. In the 12th, Tampa Bay turned a wild double play that included a pair of rundowns. Alfonso Soriano grounded out with runners at second and third to finish the inning. In the 11th, Yankees pinch-hitter Ichiro Suzuki grounded out with two on. Ellsburys RBI single with two outs in the ninth off Juan Carlos Oviedo made it 5-all. Fans were still cheering when Brandon Gomes relieved and before even throwing a pitch, he tried a pickoff at first base -- Maddon challenged the safe call and was right, and Ellsbury was ruled out. Maddon got steamed when a flipped call resulted in a double play against the Rays in the 13th, and he was tossed. Mark Teixeira and Soriano hit consecutive homers in the eighth off Joel Peralta that tied it at 4. Tampa Bay bounced back in the ninth, taking a 5-4 lead on Evan Longorias RBI single against closer David Robertson. Maddon said before the game that closer Grant Balfour wasnt available after posting saves in both ends of the sweep in Boston. Oviedo was trying for his first save since he had 36 in 2011 with the Marlins while playing under the name of Leo Nunez. NOTES: Yankees RHP Masahiro Tanaka (3-0, 2.27 ERA) starts Saturday vs. RHP Jake Odorizzi (1-3, 6.85). Tanaka has won 31 straight regular-season decisions dating to 2012 in Japan. Asked how hes done so far during his first year in the majors, Tanaka said in English "so-so." Girardi chuckled at that assessment, saying with a grin: "I think hes done pretty good." Maddon said he was eager to see the much-heralded, $155 million rookie, adding, "He drives a 787 to New York City from Tokyo." Kiddingly, Maddon noted how he takes an RV to spring training. ... Girardi is 579-421 in regular-season games with New York. Wholesale USA Soccer Jerseys discount uswnt jersey Wholesale AC Milan Jerseys Wholesale Arsenal Jerseys Wholesale A.S.
