Reed ends long 1st round with the lead at Doral
DORAL, Fla. (AP) - Patrick Reed ended a long opening round at the Cadillac Championship on Friday with a 4-under 68 to take a one-shot lead.
Only six players finished the first round Thursday because of a storm delay. The rest of the field who had to return in the morning did not find peaceful conditions. The wind shifted slightly, and the Blue Monster had plenty of bite.
Tiger Woods made one par in eight holes and shot a 76. It was his highest score in 40 completed rounds at Doral.
Trump National Doral received an entire makeover that featured more water and a priority on angles into the green. Masters champion Adam Scott had 75, a blow to his bid to try to become No. 1 in the world.
Nats scratch P Fister with elbow inflammation
VIERA, Fla. (AP) - Washington Nationals righthander Doug Fister was scratched from his scheduled start Friday against the Houston Astros because of inflammation in his elbow.
Nationals manager Matt Williams says he'll "push him (back) a couple of days, just to make sure; get it out of there."
Fister, acquired in an offseason trade with the Detroit Tigers, threw 30 pitches over two innings on Sunday in his spring debut. Williams says Fister felt discomfort in his right elbow after the game.
He had an MRI on Thursday.
Williams says "we're not concerned about it," but at the same time, "not going to take any chances."
The Nationals will start Tanner Roark against the Astros.
