Scottsdale, AZ (SportsNetwork. Dave Henderson Jersey .com) - Ryan Palmer fired a 7-under 65 in Thursdays opening round and stood alone atop the leaderboard as play at the Phoenix Open was suspended due to darkness. Palmer, who is coming off a tie for 10th last week at the Humana Challenge, is a three-time winner on the PGA Tour. Tiger Woods returned to action for the first time in an official event since last years PGA Championship. He rallied from a poor start for a 2-over 73, which left him tie for 104th. Woods opened with a pair of bogeys at one and two. A poor chip led to a double-bogey, which dropped him to 4-over par through four holes. He got one stroke back with a 13-foot birdie putt at five, but he tripped to a bogey at nine as his drive stopped on the edge of a bunker and he had a poor stance. Around the turn, Woodss drive at 11 stopped under a small bush and that led to another a dropped shot. After a solid drive on the par-5 13th, he stuffed his second shot inside a foot. The tap-in eagle got Woods back to plus-3. He parred the next two, then drove the green at the drivable 17th. He 2-putted for birdie from 20 feet out. A par at the last left Woods at 2-over par and nine strokes off the lead. Im just having a hard time finding the bottom. Because of my old pattern, I was so steep on it that I have new grind on my wedge, and sometimes its hard to trust, Woods explained of his poor chipping. I got into the flow of the round, but it was just trying to get committed to this new swing change. I struggled with it in the beginning. I just need tournament rounds like this, where I can fight through it and turn it around, grind through it and make adjustments on the fly. Major champions Keegan Bradley and Bubba Watson share second place at minus-6. They were joined there by Daniel Berger, who was through 16 holes of round one at the TPC Scottsdale. Former Masters winner Zach Johnson carded a 5-under 66. He was joined in fifth place by Martin Laird, Robert Streb and Ben Martin. Phil Mickelson, a three-time winner of this event, also started slowly as he was 3-over par through six holes, but he carded five birdies over the final 11 holes for a 2-under 69. He is in a large group tied for 29th. Play was suspended for the day by darkness with nine players left on the course. They will return to TPC Scottsdale at 10 a.m. ET on Friday to complete their opening rounds, while round two will start as scheduled at 9:30 a.m. Palmer played the back nine first on Thursday and he got going with a 9-foot birdie effort at the 12th. Like Woods, Palmer dropped his second at the 13th to kick-in range and that eagle quickly moved Palmer to minus-3. The 38-year-old rolled in a 19-footer for birdie at the raucous par-3 16th and made it two in a row with a short birdie effort at 17. After a par at 18, Palmer turned at minus-5 and he was one shot off the lead. Palmer dropped his approach to nine feet at No. 2 and he drained that to gain a piece of the lead. He made it two in a row as he also birdied the third to move atop the leaderboard at minus-7. After taking the lead, Palmer closed with 2-putt pars on the final six holes. In that span, his shortest birdie chance was from 27 feet out. NOTES: Palmer matched the second-lowest 9-hole score in PGA Tour history last week at the Humana as he fired a 9-under 27 on the back at nine of the Nicklaus Private course at PGA West ... Woods, who is winless since the 2013 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, carded his first eagle on the PGA Tour since that same WGC event in 2013 ... Thursdays attendance was 118,461, which set the Thursday record by 30,000 fans.

Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.European Champions Cup kicks off this weekend and we look at the players who will be lighting up the tournament in round one. The Champions Cup kicks off this week as the best teams across Europe bid to book their place in the final at Murrayfield next May.Defending Champions Saracens kick-off their campaign with a tough away trip to Toulon, while last years runners-up Racing 92 host Munster on Sunday. We have plenty of live action this week and you can keep up to date with all the games on our live blogs. Here are just a few of the players we will be keeping a close eye on this weekend.Wasps v Zebre (Saturday, Sky Sports 2 HD from 12.30pm)Wasps will be looking for maximum points against Zebre on Saturday and this could get messy for the Italian club. Wasps are in superb form at the moment and have plenty of players on fire. Look out for wingers Frank Halai and Josh Bassett, who both should get on the score sheet.Ashley Johnson, who switched from flanker to hooker, is back in the backrow this week. A big ball carrier for Wasps, Johnson is also massive on defence and will be looking to put some of his traditional big hits in on Saturday. Zebres Andries Van Schalkwyk Zebre may not have won a game this season in the PRO12 but pushed Glasgow close last week. Their No 8 Andries Van Schalkwyk is a real workhorse and will do his best to try and make some inroads with his carrying against Wasps.Connacht v Toulouse (Saturday, Sky Sports 4 HD from 5.30pm) The defending PRO12 champions may not have had the best start to this seasons campaign but wins against Edinburgh and Ulster will have given them some confidence heading into this game. Connacht centre Bundee Aki Centre Bundee Aki is the man to look out for here - a rather quick powerhouse, he will relish running at the likes of Florian Fritz and Yann David.For Toulouse, lock Richie Gray is a world class player and has been in great form for them this season in the Top 14. On the bench, they also have Talalelei Gray (no relation to Richie!) who gives the Toulouse backrow a little more oomph and a little more balance. Toulouses Scottish lock Richie Gray (R) vies with Lyons players during the French Top 14 Toulouse are guilty of being a bit too pedestrian at times - relying on their heavy plodders - but Talalelei has got a lot of energy and a tremendous work rate.Northampton v Montpellier (Saturday, Sky Sports 2 HD from 5pm) The battle of the No 8s between Louis Picamoles and Pierre Spies is certainly going to be interesting. Picamoles loves to carry while Spies is more of a linking and offloading No 8. Louis Picamoles on the charge for Saints Winger George North is always exciting when he gets the ball and will be hoping his forwards can win enough front-foot ball for him to make the most of his skills.For Montpellier, flanker Jacques Du Plessis is outstanding. Hes all about the physicality and power game and is a one-man wrecking ball. Montpellier wiing Nemani Nadolo takes on Pau full-back Charly Malie Another winger who will cause havoc if he gets enough ball is Nemani Nadolo - a massive man who can go around or through defences. Jed Lowrie Jersey. Miles Harrison catches up with Northampton head coach Jim Mallinder ahead of their opening Champions Cup clash with Montpellier Bordeaux-Begles v Ulster (Sunday, Sky Sports 3 HD from 12.30pm) Its the battle of the Ireland No 10s as Ian Madigan and Paddy Jackson go head-to-head. They know each other pretty well and are both in excellent form for their respective clubs. Bordeaux-Begles fly-half Ian Madigan Scrum-half Baptiste Serin starts on the bench for Bordeaux but watch out when he does come on. Hes got amazing pace and loves to snipe around the fringes and darting through any holes.Its a big blow for Ulster that Charles Piutau is out injured but the good news is that Andrew Trimble is back and will skipper the side from the wing. Ulster wing Andrew Trimble with the Champions Cup Racing 92 v Munster (Sunday, Sky Sports 2 HD from 3pm) All the talk is about Dan Carter but Maxime Machenaud, Racings goal kicking No 9, is so crucial for them. He is the glue that holds them together and will play a key role in their campaign. Racing 92 scrum-half Maxime Machenaud in action against Clermont Camille Chat is another big player for Racing - he usually comes off the bench but he starts against Munster and expect plenty of barnstorming action from the hooker.Racings scrum is pretty impressive and Munster will really need to get on the front foot here if they can. Munsters CJ Stander Prop Dave Kilcoyne has passed his concussion assessment and will need to have a big game while CJ Stander will certainly be taking the fight to Racing 92.
