ST. Jamal Crawford Jersey . SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. - Erik Compton is happy with where he is in golf, and hes not referring to his 5-under 65 on Thursday for a share of the lead in the McGladrey Classic.A return to Sea Island provides an occasion to take stock of how far he has come in the last 13 years, and what Compton refers to as the hurdles he didnt anticipate.Theres a medical term for these hurdles. Its called a second heart transplant.Im almost 35 years old. Ive had a good career in golf, really, he said. Even though Ive had some time off, Ive been able to support myself and have a good life.Compton remarkably earned a PGA Tour card just four years after he drove himself to the hospital while suffering a heart attack, dodging death until he received a second transplant. He now is in his fourth straight season on golfs toughest circuit, and he has shown steady improvement.The next step is to win, and Compton has been around long enough not to get overly excited about a good start.He opened with a pair of birdies in the morning chill on the Seaside Course at Sea Island, dropped only one shot and joined Sea Island resident Brian Harman, Michael Thompson and Will MacKenzie in the lead.Chesson Hadley was among six players one shot behind. More than half of the field was at par or better on a gentle day for scoring.I expect I should win this year. Thats a goal of mine, Compton said. Its always been a goal, but I think every time I get on the course it becomes more of a realistic expectation.Compton first played Sea Island when he competed in the SEC Championship while at Georgia in 2001. A few months later, Compton played in the Walker Cup at nearby Ocean Forest.The first hurdle when he turned pro was realizing that everybody out here is really, really, really, really good. The more serious hurdle was his heart.Compton had his first transplant when he 12 because of cardiomyopathy, an enlarging of the heart that hinders its ability to pump blood. He had his second in 2008 and ended that year by making the cut in the final PGA Tour event.His story never gets old, and Compton is happy to tell it, especially if that means bringing attention to the Donate Life America campaign. He prefers to look ahead, at the next shot, the next tournament, trying to get the most he can out of his game, just like the guys he is trying to beat.Compton has reached the FedEx Cup playoff the last two seasons and advanced to the third round at the BMW Championship last month. In the short off-season, he spent more time in the gym trying to get stronger at the recommendation of former Miami Heat guard Ray Allen.I went to the gym with him a couple of times and played him for some money games in Miami, Compton said. He was just trying to motivate me to get in better shape. So I worked out a little bit. And then just played five or six rounds with him before I went back on the road.Easy money? Compton smiled.I got him five ways one day, he said without mentioning a dollar amount.Compton played on that Walker Cup team with 2009 U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover along with Bryce Molder and D.J. Trahan, who both went on to win on the PGA Tour. The Britain & Ireland team featured former world No. 1 Luke Donald and Graeme McDowell, the U.S. Open champion at Pebble Beach.Comptons hopes were not much different from theirs — turn pro, win tournaments.I think when I was younger, I had some unrealistic expectations, he said. I knew I was a good player. I obviously had some hurdles that I had to deal with in front of me, which I didnt see coming. I didnt know I was going to have to deal with that.Whats real to him now is being a PGA Tour regular. Hes going to the Masters next year for the first time, courtesy of his runner-up finish in the U.S. Open. That remains his biggest highlight in golf.Whats next? Hes curious to find out. Compton is learning not to swing so hard to take advantage of his putting stroke.I just want to get the ball in play and hit on the green and see where I can go, he said. And thats difficult to do in four days, and its proven difficult for a lot of guys who have never won on tour who have great careers. I happen to be one of those guys right now, and I feel like if I can do the things like I did today and get out of my own way, theres no reason I shouldnt continue to progress in this game.DIVOTS: Mark Anderson had the first ace in tournament history, a 4-iron from 212 yards on No. 3. ... Matt Kuchar and Webb Simpson were in the group at 67, while defending champion Chris Kirk opened with a 68. ... McGladrey extended its title sponsorship through 2020. Jimmy Butler Jersey . So what happens? Stevenson lands a huge left to Dawsons temple only 76 seconds into the opening round and walks away with the championship belt. "I said Id knock him out," said Stevenson (21-1). Kevin Garnett Jersey . Halak did not get the start in the Washington Capitals Tuesday night game against the St. http://www.basketballtimberwolvesshop.com/Cheap-Karl-Anthony-Towns-Timberwolves-Jersey/ . -- The Grand Rapids Griffins scored three goals in 33 seconds of the second period en route to defeating the Hamilton Bulldogs 6-1 in American Hockey League action on Friday. CLEVELAND -- Davone Bess had a disappointing and shortened first season with the Browns. The wide receiver was placed on the reserve/non-football illness list Saturday, ending his season with two games left and after he missed practice time this week for "personal reasons." The Browns announced the move with Bess after travelling to New York to play the Jets on Sunday. The team gave no further details for Bess absence or his abrupt end to his season. The 28-year-old Bess was excused from practice on Thursday and Friday by Browns coach Rob Chudzinski, who said Josh Cooper and Greg Little would likely get most of the snaps at slot receiver, Bess primary position. Bess will also miss the season finale at Pittsburgh. The Browns acquired Bess in a draft-day trade from Miami in April, and Cleveland quickly signed the six-year veteran to a three-year, $11.5 million contrract extension through 2016. Justin Patton Jersey. The Browns coveted a sure-handed receiver and expected Bess would be both a playmaker and leader. However, he leads the NFL with 14 drops while catching 42 passes for 362 yards and two touchdowns. In a loss at Kansas City, Bess dropped three passes and also muffed a late punt, costing the Browns any chance of upsetting the Chiefs. On Friday, a photo on Bess Instagram account showed him sitting on an outdoor deck and lighting what appears to be a cigarette of some kind. He has a flag draped around his neck and nearby is a photo of late reggae legend Bob Marley. The photo has since been deleted, and the Browns had no comment about it. A native of Oakland, Calif., Bess had 61 catches for 778 yards and one TD last season for the Dolphins, who originally signed him as an undrafted free agent in 2008. Bess played college ball at Hawaii. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
