The crowd may want to look ahead. And my friends in the media are already asking That Question. But Graham DeLaet isnt ready to look beyond his first tee shot on Saturday. After equaling the course record on Friday, you can forgive everyone for getting a little excited about the possibilities. You know, the chance that this damn 60-year drought can come to an end. It would be a great moment for Canadian golf, a great moment for DeLaet and, selfishly, a great moment for the keyboard tappers and microphone holders who would no longer have to ask That Question any longer. But lets back up just a bit here. Its not Sunday, yet. DeLaet ignited everyones imagination of just what the coronation might look like by posting a smooth 63. For the first time in a while, his putter behaved as he used his flat stick just 25 times when on the green. That, he said, was the result of some work he did earlier in the week with short game coach Gabriel Hjertstedt. The two of them came up with one small change that, as it often does with something as confounding as putting, made a big difference. "My putting coach was here Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday," said DeLaet. "We put in some good work and changed a little bit of how I was seeing lines. I was picking spots in front of the ball instead of picking spots at the hole. Just something a little bit different and it was nice to see some putts rolling in." To a certain extent, DeLaet will always live and die with his putting. Its his Achilles heel in an otherwise bulletproof golf game. Just look at the stats for this year – hes second in greens in regulation, 11th in driving distance, fifth in total driving and – wait for it – 137th in strokes gained, putting, the key indicator of how a player performs on the greens. But on this day, he was pure. He drained a 30-footer on 14 for a birdie, another one from 21 feet on the first hole and sunk a 20-footer to save a bogey on the 18th hole. That last one might be the most vital of the many that found the bottom of the cup. Playing his ninth hole of the day and already four under for the round, DeLaet drove his ball into the water, took a drop then hit his next shot up the fairway. From there he lofted a wedge onto the green. "I was kind of counting a double when I was walking up to the 18th green," he said, "so to hole that putt was a nice bonus." Its been a while since DeLaet has enjoyed such a good day with his putter, but he wasnt alone in getting the balls to drop. "It was definitely fun to see some putts roll in," he said. "All of us were kind of making putts all day." All of us would be his group of Matt Kuchar and Jim Furyk; the trio combined for 22 birdies. Furyk also tied the course record, held by Scott Verplank and David Morland IV. "There was just so much momentum," he stated. "The crowd was getting behind us. Even Matt and Jim, the crowd was starting to get behind them. They were just seeing such good golf all day. You definitely start feeding off each other and you almost expect to hole putts just to keep up." While DeLaet loved the emotion displayed by the fans at Royal Montreal – the vast majority on the property seemed to be following his group – and the way he played, he was careful not to start thinking about buying any silver polish just yet. The player who has yet to win a tournament on the PGA Tour is savvy enough to realize that it might take two more course records to get his name on the trophy. "I know theres going to be a little bit of added pressure because Im in good position heading into the weekend," said DeLaet. "But at the same time were only half way through this thing and if I can put something together like this [Saturday] then maybe we can start talking about that." Maybe for him. But in the brasseries and bistros and the dix-neuf holes, theyre already chatting. As they have been for oh, about 60 years. Alex Smith Jersey .

Louis second-period goal increased the New York Rangers lead but Dustin Brown has countered for the Los Angeles Kings who now trail the New York Rangers 2-1 in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final at Madison Square Garden.JOLIET, Ill. - With rain in Fridays forecast at Chicagoland Speedway, the only time on track became a strategy session for the championship contenders. If qualifying was rained out, the field for Sundays opening round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship would be set by practice speeds and teams had to decide if they wanted to focus on simply posting a fast lap to grab a strong starting position. It worked out perfectly for Kyle Busch, Ryan Newman and Carl Edwards, who all shot to the top of the speed chart in practice and were rewarded with the top three starting spots in Sundays race when rain indeed washed out qualifying. "We definitely saw the radar and the forecast," said Newman, who will start second on Sunday. "Made one (practice) run and switched it over, spent the rest of the time doing mock qualifying runs, knowing we had a chance of that being our actual qualifying position." Edwards said crew chief Jimmy Fennig made one final adjustment late in practice that found him additional speed and moved him to third on the sheet. "We started the day thinking this might happen and Jimmy did a great job with a strategy," Edwards said. "I think thats what all of us are going to have to do thought the Chase — were just going to have to get every little bit you can every race weekend." The 10-race Chase opens at Chicago under a radically different format introduced this year by NASCAR. Using an elimination method foor the expanded 16-driver field, four drivers will be knocked out of contention every three races.dddddddddddd The first round of cuts comes Sept. 28 at Dover, and all 16 drivers came into Chicago just trying to make it through the first round. A victory earns an automatic advancement into the next round. Busch, who finished second in the Chase opener last year, will start from the pole and was buoyed by a strong practice session with his Joe Gibbs Racing team. The organization has lagged behind Hendrick Motorsports and Team Penske all season, and doesnt seem to have the same pace as the championship favourites. Hes hoping Gibbs has turned it up for the Chase, and his practice session was the sign of big things to come on Sunday. "Having a good (speed) there in practice means a lot, but theres obviously a lot of things that need to happen in the race this weekend for us and getting off to a good start and being able to carry that into the next 10 weeks," he said. Matt Kenseth, his Gibbs teammate, will start fifth, while defending champion Jimmie Johnson will start seventh, one spot ahead of Hendrick teammate Jeff Gordon. Kevin Harvick will start 12th, Dale Earnhardt Jr. 13th, Kurt Busch 14th, A.J. Allmendinger 17th, Kasey Kahne 19th, Greg Biffle 20th, Aric Almirola 23rd, Denny Hamlin 24th, and Penske drivers Brad Keselowski 25th and Joey Logano 28th. "I do have a lot of confidence that were going to figure this out," Logano said.
