Shane Lowry birdied five of his first nine holes at TPC Scottsdale to take a share of the lead after the opening round of the Phoenix Open. Phoenix Open Latest leaderboard The Irishman mixed eight gains with two bogeys on his way to a six-under 65 at TPC Scottsdale, to join Hideki Matsuyama and world No 4 Rickie Fowler in a three-way tie at the top of the leaderboard.After a hat-trick of birdies from the 16th saw Lowry reach the turn in 31, the Ryder Cup hopeful followed an eight-foot gain at the third by sinking a six-footer at the fourth to temporarily hold the outright advantage. Lowry then recovered from successive blemishes from the fifth to drain a 25-footer at the seventh before finishing his round with two pars.I started the round beautifully and made a few birdies, holed a couple of long putts, Lowry said. I then had a bit of a slip-up there in the middle of the play. Fowler is already a winner this season on the European Tour I just became a little bit tense there and thats something that I need to work on.Fowler bounced back from his missed cut at Torrey Pines last week to birdie three of his four holes and hole a long-range eagle putt at the 15th.A close-range gain at the third moved Fowler to five under, before he capped round by picking up a shot at the ninth despite finding a fairway bunker. Its not one that you try and pull off a lot, Fowler said about his approach in to the 18th. I knew I could hit it, but I had to hit it perfect.I made some great swings, made a lot of good putts and it was nice to see the ball go in the hole after last week.Frost saw the opening round delayed by over an hour earlier in the morning, meaning a number of players couldnt complete their rounds before play was suspended due to darkness. Matsuyama completes the trip at six under Matsuyama, who has finished inside the top-5 in his previous two appearances in this event, completes the trip on six under, with Anirban Lahiri and Bryce Molder, who still has two holes to play, a stroke off the pace.Englands Greg Owen and last weeks Farmers Insurance Open champion Brandt Snedeker are part of a five-strong group on four under, while Phil Mickelson is a further shot back despite running up an ugly triple-bogey at the fifth after sending his tee shot out of bounds.

Kyler Murray Cardinals Jersey . The 25-year-old Japanese star has officially been posted by his club team, the Rakuten Golden Eagles. SPARTA, Ky. -- Brad Keselowskis calm demeanor was never more evident than his cool response to a tense moment.He radioed crew chief Paul Wolfe that his No. 2 Ford was out of fuel but stayed focused, heeding instructions to milk whatever mileage he could.Keselowski ended up having enough to become the first three-time winner at Kentucky Speedway on Saturday night, overtaking Kevin Harvick on lap 201 and holding on for the Sprint Cup Series victory.We ran out with about two (laps) to go, he said. Somehow we limped it around and stay ahead of Carl (Edwards) and bring it home. This is something Im not going to forget.Its a pretty helpless feeling being out of gas with guys behind you. But theres nothing you can about it, and freaking out aint going to help anything.Matt Kenseth grabbed the lead with six laps remaining but soon pitted for fuel to hand the top spot back to Keselowski, who had just enough gas in reserve to edge Edwards by .175 seconds in the closest victory margin for the 400-mile race. Keselowskis tank eventually ran dry and he needed a tow truck to get to victory lane.Ryan Newman was third, followed by Kurt Busch and then Tony Stewart in fifth in his final Kentucky race. The three-time series champion is retiring after this season.Keselowski led three times for a total of 75 laps on his way to his second straight win and series-best fourth of the season that clinched a spot in the Chase for the championship.All of his Kentucky wins have come in even-numbered years -- the others came in 2012 and 2014 -- and his latest triumph on the 1.5 mile tri-oval might have been his most impressive in terms of strategy.The Penske Racing driver pitted just four times after starting second and made the most of his gas tank down to the last drop, withstanding one last charge from Edwards. Those final laps were still nerve-wracking for Wolfe, but hes been in this situation before with Keselowski and things have turned out well.I felt pretty good about it (fuel) until the 19 (Edwards) closed up on us, he said.dddddddddddd He was able to go and I think he said, shut it off a little bit down the back and as he got into the corner it picked up. Once we were coming off (turn) 4, I saw he was still under power and I felt like we had it at that point.Said Edwards: I thought he was out of fuel, but he did a good job.Keselowski clearly got a lot from his tires and setup, both of which were important on the resurfaced and reconfigured track featuring higher banking in turns and 1 and 2. He lamented the smoothing of front-stretch bumps he said added character to Kentucky, but quickly adapted to the improvements and new NASCAR rules that reduced downforce and sideforce.Harvick, the pole-sitter, led for a race-high 128 laps and finished ninth.Keselowski guided his Ford past Harvicks Chevy on lap 201 after the race record-tying 11th caution. The race then stayed green to the end.Accidents were the story early on. Some notable names were collected, including Jimmie Johnson, Joey Logano and rookie Chase Elliott.Some other notes from the Kentucky race:HARD HIT: Loganos No. 22 Ford was knocked out after hitting the wall, an impact that left him 38th and red-faced. That was one of the hardest hits Ive had in a while, he said. Of his race, he added, it doesnt hurt. I think its just red.TIRES HOLD UP: Despite double-digit cautions that quickly made Goodyears tires an easy target, the package that differed from last months test held up well. Spokesman Mike Siberini said tires were cut by other factors, but there was no blistering like the type the company found after the June test here.PARTING GIFT: Stewart received a Kentucky basketball jersey from former Wildcats coach Joe B. Hall and ex-players Jack Goose Givens and Kyle Macy from the 1978 NCAA championship team.
