Trevor Murphy Ties for 15th at Cleveland Open

WESTLAKE, Ohio -- Trevor Murphy is in the hunt at the tour's current stop at the Cleveland Open.

The St. Johnsbury native was one of many who found the Lakewood Country Club's par-71 course to their liking at Thursday's opening round. Sixty-one players beat par, with Murphy's 2-under 69 putting him in a 15th-place tie with 24 other players.

The tournament features a field of 156 golfers competing over 72 holes of stroke play for a purse of $600,000. Many greats have won it. Arnold Palmer won the first Cleveland Open in 1963 after defeating Tony Lema and Tommy Aaron in a playoff, and two-time major winner Dave Stockton won the 1968 event.

ST. JUDE CLASSIC: In Memphis, Phil Mickelson talked of finishing off rounds coming into the tounament, and he did just that Thursday with a 3-under 67 in the opening round at the TPC Southwind.

Mickelson birdied three of his final four holes for his first round in the 60s since the third round at the Wells Fargo Championship. He hadn't shot below 70 since then, missing the cut at the Players Championship and tying for 49th at Memorial last week.

He is among the players here tuning up for the U.S. Open at Pinehurst, and Retief Goosen was the clubhouse leader with a 66.

Play was delayed Thursday afternoon for a thunderstorm, and tournament officials closed the course to fans for the rest of the day.

Elway's Son Pleads Not Guilty to Assaulting Woman

DENVER -- Jack Elway, the son of Denver Broncos general manager John Elway, has pleaded not guilty to charges that he assaulted his girlfriend and pulled her from a car by her hair.

Court records show 24-year-old John Albert Elway entered the plea on Wednesday. He was charged with assault and disturbing the peace after the Saturday incident near a college campus in downtown Denver.

Police reports show Elway's girlfriend told officers he shoved her to the ground when she tried to get back into the car, causing scrapes.

Police say Elway then fled the scene. He is free after posting $550 bond, and a trial is scheduled for August.
