BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Michael Allen said it wasnt until his 15th hole that he started thinking about shooting golfs magic number of 59. And he promptly missed the birdie putt on the par-5 sixth hole. But with birdies on two of his last three holes, Allen matched the Champions Tour record with a 12-under 60 on Friday in the Allianz Championship, finishing the first round with an eagle and 10 birdies. The 55-year-old Allen became the ninth player in the 35-year history of the 50-and-over tour to shoot 60 and the first to accomplish the feat on a par-72 course. "The story of my career -- almost," said Allen, winless in 369 starts on the PGA Tour. "After I missed that birdie putt on No. 6, I kind of figured it wasnt happening." Allen took advantage of the calm conditions on the Old Course at Broken Sound to grab a three-shot lead over Scott Dunlap. Allen played his last 15 holes in 11 under, highlighted by a 20-foot eagle putt on the 18th -- his ninth hole of the day. "It seemed really easy," said Allen, who won the 2009 Senior PGA Championship for the first of his five Champions Tour victories. "I think its harder to shoot a 72 when youre struggling than to shoot a 60 when youre playing well." Allen was fortunate on the par-4 fourth hole when he chunked his approach to the green, then skulled a chip that took two bounces and fell into the hole for an unlikely birdie. "Thats when you kind of think things are going your way," Allen said. "Its great to shoot this round, but if Im able to win, then it will become even more magical." Tom Lehman, Chien Soon Lu and Wes Short Jr. shot 65. Short is attempting to become the 17th player to win in his Champions Tour debut. Defending champion Rocco Mediate shot a 69. He won last year in his first Champions Tour start. Phoenix Suns Jerseys .

That was my intention.He said he took it to the sidelines, hasnt seen it since and probably never will.Ill do my best to try to get ahold of it, Jackson said. But right now its in the middle of, what do they call it, Deflategate.The normal procedure when a player wants to save the ball, he said, is for it to go to the equipment staff and you have it in your locker come Monday morning.I dont know how it got to this point, Jackson said, but somehow Im in the middle of it.Jackson said he doesnt handle the ball enough to know whether it was properly inflated or not.The deal about me saying that I noticed anything about it, thats totally false, he said.Baltimores John Harbaugh, who will coach Team Carter at the Pro Bowl, said that it would be an unfair advantage to play with a deflated football.Harbaughs Ravens lost at New England the previous week. He declined to discuss any specifics of the Patriots case, referring questioners to what he said at a news conference in Baltimore earlier in the week.I will say that I think the league is on it, Harbaugh said. Theyre going to do whatever is right and proper. Theyre going to make sure the game is played with integrity and its played the right way — its fair and there are no unfair advantages for either side in any game.Thats what sports is all about. Thats what football is all about. Thats their obligation and Im confident that theyre up to that responsibility.Harbaugh said its not for him to say what another coach would be thinking about or what he would knnow about.ddddddddddddAsked if he would be aware of the condition of his teams footballs, Harbaugh said, I would be aware of a lot of things.I try to be aware of as much as I can, he said. I think any coach would. But I cant say what another coach would be aware of.Wide receiver Jordy Nelson of Green Bay said he thinks quarterbacks have the ball the way they like it, within the rules. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers likes the ball filled to the max.Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford said he knows equipment staffs rub up the ball to get it the way the quarterback likes, but hes never dealt with how much air is inside.Everybody likes it different, Stafford said. Apparently, Aaron Rodgers likes to throw a beach ball — whatever.While questions about deflated footballs dominated the discussions so far this week, there is a football game to be played on Sunday. The game at University of Phoenix Stadium, site of next weekends Super Bowl, is sold out.Chris Carter and Michael Irvin are honorary captains and chose the players on their teams on Wednesday night, so it will be Team Carter vs. Team Irvin.Its the second time for this setup after the AFC vs. NFC format was scrapped.On Thursday, each team had a workout at the Air Force base east of Phoenix, with hundreds of soldiers and their families surrounding the football field. After each practice, the players signed autographs and posed for pictures with fans.Its an incredible scene, Harbaugh said. Its neat to be a part of it. We drove up and the place was ringed with military personnel and the fighter jets were taking off over the top of us. To me, thats what its all about, the sacrifices their families make all across this country to keep us safe and keep us free and give us a chance to play a big game like this and be a part of this. Thats America.___AP NFL website: and Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
