PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Joe Durant is trying desperately to hold onto his old job on the PGA Tour. If it doesnt work out, his new gig is looking more promising all the time. The Champions Tour rookie shot a 6-under 64 on Thursday in the first round of the Senior Players Championship, making seven birdies against one bogey to join David Frost and Doug Garwood atop the leaderboard at defenceless Fox Chapel. Bernhard Langer, Corey Pavin, Larry Mize, Steve Pate, Olin Browne, Bart Bryant, Peter Fowler and Wes Short Jr. shot 65. Colin Montgomerie, the Senior PGA winner last month, opened with a 5-under 30 on the front nine before fading to a 69. The 50-year-old Durant, a four-time winner on the main tour, is trying to split time between both circuits this summer. The pressure to earn enough money while making limited PGA Tour starts has been draining. In a way, the 50-and-over tour is allowing him to recharge. "Im trying so hard to make magic happen in one week (on the PGA Tour) and its just not working out very well," Durant said. Durant tied for 31st last week in Connecticut in the PGA Tours Travelers Championship, a finish he believes should have been higher had he not slogged through the second and third rounds. "It easily could have been a top-10 week if I had just managed my game a little better Friday and Saturday," Durant said. There were no such issues Thursday. Durant holed out from the greenside bunker on the par-3 third, kick-starting his round. He ended it with a sliding left-to-right birdie putt on the par-5 18th for his 64, matching his best round since joining the Champions Tour after turning 50 in April. "It all comes down to making putts," Durant said. "If you make putts, the game is real easy. If youre burning edges, its not that easy." Frost and Garwood quickly joined Durant atop the leaderboard. Frustrated after a middling 39th-place finish at the Encompass Championship last week in Illinois, Frost ditched the shafts on his irons for the first time in four years, trading them in for something that offered a little more forgiveness. The move paid off with a near flawless round in which he missed only one fairway and three greens. "I almost want to kick myself for not (switching shafts) earlier," Frost said. Garwood, a two-time All-American during his college career at Fresno State, has finally found a home on the Champions Tour after spending most of his adult life on pro golfs fringe. He never played in a PGA Tour event and sold insurance among other things before trying to give the 50-and-over circuit a shot last spring. After some initial struggles, it is paying off handsomely. Garwood lost a playoff four weeks ago in the Principal Charity Classic and backed it up with a runner-up finish last weekend. Garwoods round included three straight birdies on Nos. 12-14, including a 35-footer on the par-4 14th. His birdie attempt on the 18th stopped one roll short of giving him the lead. Being near the lead is becoming familiar territory for Garwood, though he has done his best to downplay his steady rise. "Ive always believed the lower the expectation, the easier it is to meet," he said, laughing. "Theres enough pressure just being out there with all the hoopla. So I just go out and try to shoot my best ... trying to shoot 64, it just kind of happens." Defending champion Kenny Perry, looking for his fourth major title in the last year, failed to take advantage of the prime scoring conditions. Playing his eighth tournament in nine weeks, Perry shot an even-par 70. Perrys score was actually one better than the 71 he posted in the opening round last year. Perry responded last June by shooting a combined 20 under over the final 54 holes to edge Fred Couples and Duffy Waldorf for the first major pro title of his lengthy career. The 53-year-old Kentuckian, the Tradition winner last month in the first senior major of the year, doubted Fox Chapel would be as generous this time around, but with wide open fairways and damp greens, it wasnt a fair fight. More than half the 81 players finished at even par or better. "Its going to take a lot of birdies this week with the conditions as they are right now," Durant said.

A questionable foul called on captain Steven Caldwell in the 88th minute negated what would have been the decisive goal, forcing Toronto to settle for a 1-1 draw Friday with the visiting New England Revolution. Replays appeared to show that Caldwell simply beat the defender to the ball in the air. "I think it was the wrong decision by the referee. It certainly wasnt a foul," Caldwell said of the whistle against him after he flicked a header off a free kick snuck inside the far post beyond the reach of New England goalkeeper Matt Reis. "I just got into the area first and held my ground. It was very disappointing." Caldwell said referee Fotis Bazakos didnt offer an explanation "but I think he knew he made the wrong decision. But were all human, we all make mistakes. Its just bitterly disappointing in such a tight game." That was one of few scoring chances by either side in a largely uneventful second half before a crowd of 18,623 at BMO Field. Save for a brutal opening 10 minutes, Toronto FC head coach Ryan Nelsen felt his side deserved to win. "Whats unfortunate is that for 80 minutes of the game the guys were superb," Nelsen said. "Im more disappointed because I think they really deserved to win and it was kind of taken away from them." Nelsen said he believes Bazakos "knows it was a mistake" to whistle Caldwell. But, no doubt leery of being fined for excessive criticism, the coach tempered his comments about the play. "We have to live with that and thats life," he said. "People make mistakes. We all make mistakes." It was the second straight 1-1 draw for Toronto (4-12-10), now winless in foour games.dddddddddddd The point moved New England (10-9-7), at least temporarily, into the fifth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference of Major League Soccer. The Revolution is undefeated in three straight. The teams bookended the first half with goals with New England opened the scoring barely 90 seconds in. Kelyn Rowe, who came in having found the net three times in his last two matches, picked up the ball just inside the Toronto half and made a nice run to the top of the penalty area where he walked around defender Doneil Henry and thumped a shot off the back of Richard Eckersley. Rowe collected his rebound and slid a pass across the penalty area to a wide open Diego Fagundez, who tapped it into the gaping net for his team-leading ninth goal of the season. Fagundez nearly doubled the lead four minutes later but Toronto goalkeeper Joe Bendik dove to get his fingertips on a right-footed shot before it curled inside the far post. After a nightmarish start, Toronto settled in and began to take the play to the visitors, putting on some sustained pressure from about the half hour mark onward with a 6-5 edge in shot attempts in the first half. Toronto was finally rewarded when, near the end of two minutes of first-half stoppage time, Wiedeman equalized. Eckersley sent a long free kick into the Revolution penalty area where it ping-ponged around before Henry, amidst appeals for a handball from New England players, slipped a pass to Wiedeman who scored his second goal of the season. "The last 80 minutes we were the better team for sure," said Wiedeman. "We came out slow. The first 10 minutes were not good, not acceptable, so we need to cut that out for sure. But we definitely felt like the last one was taken away from us."
