ST. Jerami Grant Jersey . SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. -- Heavy fog allowed Brian Gay a quick nap, and he no longer felt so sluggish after travelling halfway around the world from Shanghai to Sea Island. Gay had enough energy Thursday to make eight birdies on his way to a 7-under 63, giving him a share of the lead with Briny Baird among early starters in the McGladrey Classic. The opening round could not be completed because of a fog delay lasting nearly two hours. Once the sun burned off the fog, the Seaside course was a pushover with virtually no wind. George McNeill ran off five straight birdies and was 8 under with two hole remaining. Will MacKenzie reached 7 under through 16 holes until dropping three shots in two holes for a 66. The morning fog off coastal waters could not have been better for Gay. "I was super tired," he said. Players were told the round would resume when the fog lifted. Gay didnt want to stand around on the range. He also wanted to stay loose. So he took a chance by going into the locker room at Sea Island, relaxed in a leather chair for a quick nap and then warmed up for the second time. "I felt pretty good when I teed off," he said. "I felt like I had a lot more energy." The McGladrey Classic is the third event in Gays most unusual itinerary -- four PGA Tour events in four weeks in four countries. He started two weeks ago at the CIMB Classic in Malaysia, and then flew eight hours to Shanghai for the HSBC Champions. He would not have played this week except that its only about three hours from his home in Orlando, Fla., and he loves the Seaside course. And then hell finish out the fall portion of the PGA Tour schedule next week in Mexico. Scott Piercy and Boo Weekley also were in China last week, and each opened with a 67. Calgarys Stephen Ames also shot a 67. No one was as thrilled with the start as Baird, who is returning from surgery on both shoulders. Baird last played a PGA Tour event in 2012 when he started feeling pain in his left shoulder, and then his right shoulder. He tried a cortisone shot and rehab before he realized surgery would be required. He had the operations only a month apart, and then tried to return too soon by playing Tour events. Finally, hes healthy enough to swing a club and even lift his shoulders over his head. He would like to think hes strong enough to lift a trophy over his head, though its something Baird has never experienced. This is 365th start on the PGA Tour, and he still hasnt won. It bothers him, though not as much as people might think. "Id probably rather be the guy thats won the most money and not won than the guy who has won the least amount and won once," Baird said. "When you hear that catch-phrase, that does drive you a little nuts that were only out here playing for trophies. I kind of cringe at that because thats not true. Otherwise, wed just be donating our money to charity and living in huts. So its not entirely true." One aspect about that is true -- Baird needs money to keep his full PGA Tour card. He is on a major medical exemption, meaning he needs $463,399 to reach a level that would allow him to keep his card the rest of the season. Webb Simpson, who won in Las Vegas last month for his first win this year, was at 65 along with Kevin Kisner, Kevin Chappell and Seung-yul Noh. Gay finished the HSBC Champions in time to get to the airport for a 6 p.m. flight home -- nearly 14 hours to Chicago, two more hours to Orlando, a short layover in between. He tried to relax Monday, but he has been getting up in the middle of the morning and figures hes a few days away from recovering from his jet lag. There was nothing wrong with his game that a few long putts couldnt fix. Gay usually has his caddie read the putts, but after he missed an 8-footer on the first hole, his caddie left that part up to him. Gay didnt use him the rest of the way, and he was helped by rolling in three putts from the 30-foot range. "I wasnt feeling very good at all this morning," Gay said. "Ive struggled the last few days sleeping and been really tried. But a nice day. Solid. Hit the ball nice, made a couple of long putts. Just a good day." McNeill had a few fleeting thoughts of a 59 when he made his fifth straight birdie to get to 6-under with eight holes remaining. He missed an 8-foot birdie at No. 2, and when faced with a tough par-saving putt, he realized he should worry more about his next shot than his odds of breaking 60. He had to return Friday morning with 49 other players to finish off the round. Mike Weir of Brights Grove, Ont., opened with an even par 70, while David Hearn of Brantford, Ont., turned in a 4-over 70. Ottawas Brad Fritsch was 3-over through 11 holes.

Forward Martin Reways message was simple. I say just: Its hard to not think about that game, but weve got to forget that game. The tournament just started and I still believe that we got a pretty good team, Reway recalled. Slovakia was a good enough team to bounce back from losses to Canada and the United States to qualify for the knockout round and then beat the Czech Republic to advance to the semifinals. On paper, its the same team that was blown out of Bell Centre, but Canadas players expect much more resistance in the semifinals tonight with a spot in the gold-medal game at stake. Watch the game live NOW on TSN1, TSN3, TSN4, TSN5 and TSN GO. You can also listen live on the TSN Radio Network. We dont expect it to be a blowout like last time, captain Curtis Lazar said. Theyve got a great hockey club. We cant take them lightly. Things have changed since the Boxing Day blowout, when Canada had 34 shots to Slovakias 12. In the process, Canada chased Slovak goaltender Denis Godla by scoring five goals on 23 shots. In four starts since, Godla has allowed a total of six goals on 136 shots and shut out the Czechs in the quarter-finals. Hes been the best player so far for us, Reway said. I dont see any reason why he cant be the best goalie in the tournament. He was MVP for us as well, stopped so many shots for us. Even the last game he didnt get scored on. Its perfect timing for him for his tournament. Its perfect timing because Godla is draft eligible this year and will get two more chances to impress in front of scouts, this time at Air Canada Centre. Whether the second one is in the gold- or bronze-medal game will have a lot to do with how Godla plays against Canada. Hes got to be perfect. He knows that, Reway said. But weve got to help him more than we did in the first game. Asked what his team must do to pull off an historic upset, Godla said he and his teammates must play the game of our life. Max Domi was asked how his team has changed since the blowout win over Slovakia on Boxing Day. In every way possible. I mean, you watch video on that first game and you watch video from our last game and its almost like a different team in a good way, obviously. We still have some stuff to correct and fix a little bit, but if we play our game well be fine. Head coach Benoit Groulx highlighted two key changes for his group since opening night; they are playing with better structure and the on-ice cohesion/chemistry is better. No pressure, kid. Canada is coming off an 8-0 rout of Denmark in which seven different players scored. This looks like a well-oiled machine, one that has also improved since the first Slovakia game. Weve come a long way as a team, defenceman Josh Morrissey said. That was only our fourth game together at that time. Now weve had some big games and really nailed our systems down a lot more. Lazar said Canada is better in its defensive zone and in transition and has more chemistry. Some of that is happening on the fly, as Brayden Point will continue to play on the second line with Lazar and Connor McDavid after replacing the injured Robby Fabbri there against Denmark. Pooint, who had been Canadas 13th forward, doesnt take anything away from Slovakia for how it played in the opener. Doug McDermott Jersey. That was their first game coming into a rink that was packed and cheering for our side, Point said. Theyve obviously gained some confidence over the tournament, and theyre a whole new team. Reway said most of the Slovak team had never played against competition like Canada before. Hes confident in his teams improvement but is still justifiably wary of Canadas depth. If you play against Czech or Finland, they got a few good players, but Canada every line can score, said Reway, whos a Montreal Canadiens prospect. It must be the best performance from us for this tournament. I believe we got something to show. ... Theyre the best team in the tournament, thats for sure. Its going to be hard for us. Groulx, who confirmed Zach Fucale will start in goal against Slovakia, didnt want to add to his own teams hype when told of Reways assessment. For us it is only one game at a time and our goal is to prepare and focus on what we have to do and adapt to what other teams are throwing at us, Groulx said. It is something we have been doing pretty well so far, but tomorrow we have to start over again. One victory away from guaranteeing the first medal in this tournament since 2012, Canadas players arent showing signs of feeling the pressure. Its a business-like group, even for players aged 17 to 19, something Groulx credits to preparation and routine. They know exactly what to do. They are a very confident group, Groulx said. When you look at them, they take care of a lot of things day in and day out. They come here, they are focused, they know what they have to do and they take pride at doing things right. In going undefeated by beating Denmark, Germany, Finland, the United States and Denmark, Canada has done just about everything right. Its going to be hard to stop them, Reway said. But were going to try our best, for sure. Canadian forward Robby Fabbri addressed reporters on Sunday, the first time since sustaining a high ankle sprain. The Blues prospect said he had received messages of support from T.J. Oshie and Jaden Schwartz. Its been pretty tough, but I still have a smile on my face coming to the rink every day, being around the guys and supporting them and making sure I dont bring anyone down, Fabbri said. Im a cheerleader for the next couple days. Fabbri suffered the injury after throwing a body check at Denmarks Anders Krogsgaard on Friday early in the first period of Canadas 8-0 quarterfinal win.
