AVONDALE, La. (AP) There's something about the rhythm of life in the Big Easy that appeals to Billy Horschel, who acknowledges that he can be a little "hyper" for even his own liking on the PGA Tour.

Horschel earned his first PGA Tour victory at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans a year ago. It remains his lone triumph at golf's highest level, though he isn't shy about saying that he likes his chances of defending his title.

"Something about this city just puts me at a sense of ease," Horschel said, adding that he's found New Orleans to have the best dining options of any tour stop. "We go out to dinner pretty much every night and we don't talk about golf much. We just talk about other things and we're having a good time."

Quiros, Dyson share lead at China Open

SHENZHEN, China (AP) Alvaro Quiros and Simon Dyson each shot a 5-under 67 to share the lead after the first round of the China Open on Thursday.

The pair were a stroke ahead of a group of six golfers that included defending champion Brett Rumford of Australia and Alexander Levy of France, who briefly moved into a tie with Quiros and Dyson in the growing darkness on his back nine but bogeyed the par-3 8th hole before play was suspended. He has one hole remaining to play. Read More...

RBC Heritage working to keep backing

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) RBC Heritage tournament director Steve Wilmot doesn't want to return to the dark, sponsor-less days of just a few years ago when his longtime PGA Tour stop didn't know if it would make it through to the next year. So everyone connected with the event is making sure that won't happen.

New construction on a $20 million clubhouse at Harbour Town Golf Links started shortly after Matt Kuchar's chip-in on the 72nd hole lifted him to victory Sunday. PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem was there early in the week to participate in discussions with lead sponsors Royal Bank of Canada and Boeing to extend backing past the five-year deal that ends in 2016. Read More...

Course changes to Hoylake for British

HOYLAKE, England (AP) There will be a horseshoe grandstand around the 18th green for the first time at a British Open as part of a number of course changes for this year's tournament at Hoylake.

Organizers say the Royal Liverpool course will be extended by 54 yards compared to 2006 - the last time it held the major - and the green on the first hole has been reshaped and rebunkered to make it the "hardest opening hole on the Open rota." Read More...

Woods to host tournament for amateurs

(AP) -- Tiger Woods is hosting another tournament, this one for recreational golfers on courses that include Merion and Congressional, and a gem north of Boston that a century ago was reputed to be the toughest U.S. Open course.

The Tiger Woods Foundation, which has seven learning centers and funds the Earl Woods Scholarship Program, has been raising money primarily through five events. There's the Tiger Jam in Las Vegas (a charity concert and poker night) and the Tiger Woods Invitational (a private tournament for donors at Pebble Beach). The foundation also benefits from the Quicken Loans National and Deutsche Bank Championship on the PGA Tour, and his 18-man World Challenge in December. Read More...
