BOCA RATON, Fla. Matt Adams Jersey . -- 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. Jayson Werth Jersey . - Even with a new coach, the Denver Nuggets still love to push the basketball. Gio Gonzalez Jersey .Y. -- AJ Allmendingers journey is almost complete.CINCINNATI - The Bengals winced when the schedule came out and they saw what was in store for November.Three consecutive road games. Traveling 5,708 miles roundtrip. More than half of a day spent on airplanes just getting to and from the cities.Ugh.Its definitely different, left tackle Andrew Whitworth said on Wednesday. Its a challenge, and we knew that a long time ago. We knew we were going to go on a tough stretch, and then we were going to have a month where were going to have some of the toughest games weve played all season.Those December games — three of them against AFC North rivals — will have a lot of significance because the Bengals (7-3-1) have managed to become kings of the road.Cincinnati is back in first place after winning the first two, 27-10 at New Orleans and 22-13 at Houston. The Bengals complete the stretch on Sunday at Tampa Bay (2-9) with a chance to make team history.Its the ninth time the Bengals have played at least three consecutive road games during a season. Theyve never won three straight on the road.So its going to be a challenge for us three weeks in a row, go on the road and get your bodies right, get your minds right and get mentally focused to go in there and perform, Whitworth said.Theyve turned their season around on the road.A 24-3 loss to Cleveland in a Thursday night game at Paul Brown Stadium knocked them out of first place and left them with three losses and a tie in their last six games. Up next was that three-game stretch on the road.Theyve played two of their best all-around games in New Orleans and Houston. Andy Dalton recovered from one of his worst games — three interceptions and a 2.0 passer rating against Cleveland — by completing 70 per cent of his passes with four touchdowns and one interception in the last two.The defence hhas finally steadied itself, too. Daniel Murphy Jersey. After ranking 31st against the run following the Cleveland game, Cincinnati has allowed only 139 yards in the last two combined.Its been good for us to get into this rhythm and win these last two, especially being on the road, Dalton said. Im not saying its good to be on the road, but weve been able to do some good things so far.Whitworth thinks the toughest part of three weeks is the travel.Its not like were travelling to close games, he said. Weve been almost a two-hour flight three weeks in a row now, back and forth. Its hard on you.After a game, you sit on a plane for two hours and it messes up your recovery time. When you play at home, youve got a little more time to recover. It cuts down on those things. So theres a lot of that type of stuff.If they beat the Buccaneers, theyll be in good shape heading into a tough closing stretch. They host Pittsburgh (7-4), play at Cleveland (7-4), host Denver (8-3) in a Monday night game, and then finish at Pittsburgh.Its tough enough winning one game on the road, let alone three, receiver A.J. Green said. We have won two already, though, and I think we are on a great track and need to continue this.Notes: Linebacker Vontaze Burfict was held out of practice on Wednesday, an indication hell miss a fifth straight game following knee surgery. Coach Marvin Lewis said he might practice on a limited basis later in the week. ... Long snapper Clark Harris and receiver Mohamed Sanu were ill. Cornerback Adam Pacman Jones missed practice because of a tooth problem. ... The Bengals signed linebacker L.J. Fort to the practice squad. He played in 16 games for Cleveland in 2012 and also has been with Denver and Seattle.___Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap France Jerseys Authentic Cheap Zambia Soccer Jerseys Cheap Wales Soccer Jerseys Cheap Venezuela Soccer Jerseys Cheap Uruguay Soccer Jerseys Cheap Ukraine Soccer Jerseys Cheap Turkey Soccer Jerseys Cheap Switzerland Soccer Jerseys Cheap Sweden Soccer Jerseys Cheap Spain Soccer Jerseys Cheap South Africa Soccer Jerseys Cheap Slovakia Soccer Jerseys Cheap Singapore Soccer Jerseys Cheap Senegal Soccer Jerseys Cheap Saudi Arabia Soccer Jerseys Cheap Russia Soccer Jerseys Cheap Romania Soccer Jerseys Cheap Portugal Soccer Jerseys Cheap Poland Soccer Jerseys Cheap Peru Soccer Jerseys ' ' '
