NASSAU, Bahamas -- Dustin Johnson wasnt even expecting to be in the Bahamas for the Hero World Challenge. Ravens Youth Jerseys . He was tied for the lead Friday with Hideki Matsuyama, who has reason to expect being at the top of any tournament he plays.Six shots behind was Tiger Woods, who shot a 7-under 65 without anyone in his way.Johnson ran off three straight birdies early in his round, moved into contention with an eagle and closed with a fearless drive down the middle of the water-lined 18th fairway at Albany that set up a birdie for a 66. Matsuyama had the lead to himself until a bogey from the bunker on the par-3 17th. He shot a 67 to tie Johnson at 12-under 132.They were two shots ahead of Louis Oosthuizen and Matt Kuchar, who each shot 67.No one knows winning like Matsuyama over the last few months. He has three victories in his last four starts around the world -- the other was a runner-up finish in Malaysia -- which includes his first World Golf Championship title at the HSBC Champions.Johnson was scheduled to play an exhibition against Rory McIlroy in the Philippines on Tuesday, and while he thought about a trip halfway around the world to get to the Bahamas on time, he was resigned to sitting this one out. But he never withdrew in case the exhibition fell through, and it did.Woods made two super par saves, from next to a bush on the par-3 eighth and with a 25-foot putt on the 16th. He was practically flawless for a seven-hole stretch in the middle of his round and tied for ninth. Plus, it took just under three hours. Woods played as a single when Albany resident Justin Rose withdrew because of back problems.AUSTRALIAN PGA CHAMPIONSHIPGOLD COAST, Australia -- Andrew Dodt shot a 5-under 67 to take a two-stroke lead over fellow Australian Ashley Hall in the Australian PGA Championship.Dodt had a 12-under 132 total at Royal Pines Resort.

"Were just throwing s--- at the wall hoping something sticks," said Tortorella about the possible line combinations for Fridays game against Columbus. The Canucks have lost five straight games and six of their last seven, leaving them in a logjam in the Pacific Division, currently sitting fifth - good for ninth in the Western Conference. . -- Former San Diego Chargers safety Paul Oliver was found dead at his Atlanta-area home Tuesday night, and a medical examiner said Wednesday that the ex-player committed suicide. LONDON -- Summer Olympic sports federations said on Tuesday they are ready to deal with individual cases of Russian doping, rather than endorse a total ban on the Russian team for the Rio de Janeiro Olympics.The Association of Summer Olympic International Federations, which represents the 28 sports in the games, said it recognized the gravity and extent of the doping activities in Russia as detailed in Mondays report by World Anti-Doping Agency investigator Richard McLaren.The report, which accused Russias sports ministry of overseeing doping of the countrys Olympic athletes on a vast scale, listed 20 summer sports as being part of the cheating conspiracy.WADA and other anti-doping officials urged the International Olympic Committee to consider the unprecedented step of excluding the entire Russian contingent from the Rio Games. The IOC executive board was meeting by teleconference later Tuesday to weigh its options.Any IOC decisions may not be definitive, as the Court of Arbitration for Sport is scheduled to rule on Thursday on Russias appeal against the IAAF ban on its track and field athletes from competing in Rio.The summer sports association made clear it does not support a blanket ban.The association asked WADA to immediately provide all the detailed information to the 20 international federations concerned so that they may begin processing the individual cases under their own separate rules and regulations as soon as possible, and in line with the WADA Code and the Olympic Charter.It is important to focus on the need for individual justice in all these cases.The association said it endorses all federation decisions, including those that take into account collective responsibility of organizations under the IFs governance.That means, rather than applying a total ban, federations could suspend individual Russian sports. Thats already the case with the IAAF, which barred Russias track athletes from the games following previous WADA-commissioned reports into Russian doping.ASOIF fully supports a policy of zero tolerance in bringing all individuals linked to anti-doping violations to justice, the statement said.The summer associations position falls in line with recent comments by IOC President Thomas Bach, who has cited the need to strike a balance between individual justice and collective punishment. He said last week that if summer sports were implicated in the MMcLaren report, the international federations would have to decide on the eligibility of Russian athletes on an individual basis. Ravens Jerseys Store. McLarens report uncovered a state-run doping scheme that ensnared 28 sports, both summer and winter, and ran from 2011 to 2015.The investigation told of 312 positive tests that Russias deputy minister of sport directed lab workers not to report to WADA. Russias intelligence service, the FSB, was also involved, the report said. It also provided further details of the swapping of doping samples to protect Russian dopers, including medalists, at the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi.Im shocked and devastated by whats been going on, said Paul Melia, the head of Canadas anti-doping organization, after the findings were delivered on Monday in Toronto. And I can only imagine how betrayed the clean athletes of the world are feeling today in the face of this evidence.WADA President Craig Reedie, who is also an IOC vice president, said: WADA insists upon imposition of the most serious consequences to protect clean athletes from the scourge of doping in sport.But a blanket ban is not a sure thing.The decision to deliver one is rife with political ramifications that involve a country that sent the third-most athletes (more than 430) to the previous Summer Olympics, four years ago in London. It puts the IOC in the position of ruling against one of its biggest supporters, a nation that spent more than $50 billion hosting the Winter Games in Sochi just two years ago.The right to participate at the games cannot be stolen from an athlete, who has duly qualified and has not been found guilty of doping, said Bruno Grandi, president of gymnastics international federation. Blanket bans have never been and will never be just.Gymnastics was not among the sports listed in the report. Wrestling, meanwhile, accounted for 28 of the 312 unreported positives. The head of that international federation, Nenad Lalovic of Serbia, told The Associated Press, we will absolutely follow the decisions of the IOC.Whether the IOC issues its decision on Tuesday or simply sets the table for it to come later, it could be appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. The CAS was hearing Russias appeal on Tuesday against the ban on its athletics team.
