OPELIKA, Ala. Marquez Valdes-Scantling Super Bowl Jersey . -- Jhonattan Vegas failed to qualify for the British Open, relegating the Venezuelan Olympic qualifier to the Barbasol Championship. So far, it has worked out quite well.In far gentler conditions Friday morning than his peers faced across the Atlantic, Vegas shot a course-record 11-under 60, making a hole-in-one, another eagle and two closing birdies. He pumped his fist when his final 12-foot birdie putt dropped in on the par-4 ninth.You have to celebrate a round like this, Vegas said. They dont come that often and every chance you do it, I just have to celebrate it.Tied for the first-round lead with Angel Cabrera after a 65 on Grand Nationals Lake Course, Vegas had a six-stroke lead and a 17-under 125 total -- a shot off the PGA Tour record for strokes in the first two rounds.In a great place, no question about it, Vegas said. Theres still a lot of golf to be played.He missed a chance to become the seventh PGA Tour player to shoot 59.When I got to 8 under, I actually let myself think a little bit about 59, Vegas said. Its a lot of pressure and, two, its real demanding because you always want to keep it going, you dont want to feel like you want to protect the score. At the same time you, just want to shoot as low as you can.Vegas played a six-hole stretch on his first nine in 7 under. He started with a birdie on the par-3 12th, made a 12-footer for his second straight eagle on the par-5 13th, birdied the par-4 14th and 15th and par-5 16th, and capped the run with the ace on the 17th.I had a perfect number, 190 yards is my 7-iron, Vegas said. I hit a great 7-iron. I mean, high, right at it, turning toward the pin and I knew it was going to be fairly close but never expected to go in. It was just a great feeling seeing that ball go in.On his second nine, Vegas birdied the par-4 second, bogeyed the par-4 fourth, and birdied the par-5 fifth. He made a 20-foot birdie putt on the par-3 eighth and the 12-footer on the ninth.Obviously, Im 10 under coming to nine. I know that Im striking the ball well and I just wanted to be aggressive. That was my whole mentality coming into nine. I had 170 yards and hit a full 9-iron as far as I could and was able to make a great putt for a phenomenal round.Vegas has played the three par-5 holes in 8 under, making an eagle and two birdies each day. He won the 2011 Bob Hope Classic for his lone tour title.Hudson Swafford was second at 11 under after a 63. He had an eagle, eight birdies and a double bogey.Saw Jhonny Vegas shot 60 today, thats unbelievable, Swafford said. But I feel like I played pretty well today just to kind of maybe put a little heat on him on the weekend with some birdies. I dont want just to sit around and try to make a bunch of pars so yeah, Im pretty happy with todays round.Former Auburn player Michael Johnson shot a 65 to reach 10 under in his pro debut.David Toms, along with Cabrera the only major champions in the field, had a 66 to join Tim Herron (63), Kyle Reifers (65), Andres Gonzales (65), Roberto Castro (66) and Chesson Hadle (66) at 9 under. Herron holed out for eagle from 166 yards on the par-4 first.Cabrera was 11 strokes back at 6 under after a 71.Hunter Mahan missed the cut with rounds of 74 and 70 in his first event since the birth of his third child.The winner will get a two-year exemption and a spot in the PGA Championship, but will not be exempt for the Masters. Rashan Gary Super Bowl Jersey . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. Lane Taylor Super Bowl Jersey . -- Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Alrdridge were again the go-to duo for the Trail Blazers against the Kings. https://www.packersrookiestore.com/Packers-Aaron-Rodgers-Jersey/ . Rousey will put her perfect 8-0 record and hardware on the line against another undefeated fighter, 7-0 Sara McMann in the main event of UFC 170, which will be held at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas Nevada on February 22nd.Delhi Daredevils slipped to back-to-back IPL defeats after succumbing to bottom side Kings XI Punjab by nine runs in Mohali. Quinton de Kock bashed 52 from 30 balls but third-placed Delhi ended on 172-5 in pursuit of 182, two days after they came unstuck against another struggling side, Rising Pune Supergiants, at Feroz Shah Kotla.Delhi will drop into fourth spot on Sunday, with the winner of the Mumbai Indians versus Sunrisers Hyderabad match in Visakhapatnam leapfrogging the capital club in the standings.Kings XI remain at the foot of the table, though, behind Royal Challengers Bangalore on run rate, following the latters Virat Kohli-inspired triumph over Pune in Saturdays first encounter.Wriddhiman Saha (52 off 33) and Marcus Stoinis (52 off 44) top scored for Kings XI against Delhi, the pair sharing a second-wicket stand of 54 after Daredevils skipper Zaheer Khan opted to bowl.Hashim Amla (1) suffered a disappointing IPL bow, the South Africans continued miscommunication with Stoinis finally leading to a run out when he chopped his fifth ball towards Khan behind square. Zaheer Khan was smashed by Wriddhiman Saha But the efforts of Saha - who clubbed three successive fours off Khan - and Stoinis, plus two late sixes from Axar Patel (16no off 5), saw the strugglers post their highest score of the campaign. Dean Lowry Super Bowl Jersey. Delhi made a sedate start to their reply, notching 23 runs from four overs, but De Kock cut loose with back-to-back boundaries off Stoinis (3-40) in the fifth over and a six off Patel in the sixth.De Kock secured a 27-ball fifty with a huge maximum off Stoinis, though he carved the Australian to Patel at backward point four balls later, ending a 70-run partnership with Sanju Samson (49 off 35). Samson added 51 with Karun Nair (23) before he skied Stoinis to long on looking for a third straight boundary, while Nair was caught by David Miller, shortly after being dropped by the South African, as Kings XI battled back.Sam Billings (6) and Carlos Brathwaite (12) then came and went, before a three-run 19th over from Mohit Sharma - who shipped just 21 from his four - left Delhi requiring 25 from Sandeep Sharmas 20th, a feat the visitors could not complete.There is an IPL double header on Sunday, with Jos Buttler and Mumbai Indians taking on Sunrisers Hyderabad (11am, Sky Sports 5), before the top-of-the-table clash between Kolkata Knight Riders and Gujarat Lions (3pm, Sky Sports 4, via red button).
