Birthday greetings to Lee Westwood, Jonas Blixt and Jason Bohn (PGA)

April 24 is remembered in part as the day of the creation of the Library of Congress, the opening of the Woolworth Building skyscraper in New York, the knighting of Winston Churchill and the birthdate of Snuppy, the world’s first cloned dog. But for golf fans, April 24 is more importantly the birthdays of Lee Westwood, Jonas Blixt and Jason Bohn.

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. England’s Ian Poulter was in a group of 12 golfers just behind at 3-under on a crowded leaderboard. Henrik Stenson, who has a chance to take over the top ranking from Tiger Woods with a win here, had a 71.

Teen Chinese golfer getting used to attention (The Associated Press)

One year after his stunning debut at the Masters, Chinese 15-year-old golfer Guan Tianlang is growing accustomed to being in the spotlight. The teenager’s star has risen quickly in China since his breakthrough at Augusta National, where at the age of 14, he became the youngest golfer to make the cut at the Masters. At this time last year, he had about 25,000 followers on Sina weibo, China’s version of Twitter – not bad for a high school student. At the China Open on Thursday, Guan, still an amateur, drew as many onlookers as the No. 3-ranked player in the world, Swede Henrik Stenson, playing two groups ahead of him.

(Reuters) – Englishman Simon Dyson, who was handed a suspended two-month ban for cheating in December, fired a five-under-par 67 to grab a share of the first round lead at the European Tour’s China Open on Thursday. The Englishman fired six birdies and a lone bogey in his round in Shenzhen to end the day tied with big-hitting Spaniard Alvaro Quiros at the top of a congested leaderboard. “The first nine holes I played was the best I have played for quite some time,” Dyson told the European Tour. It was a good start and very pleasing.” The 36-year-old has enjoyed previous success in China, winning the event in 2000 as well as the Hong Kong and Macau Opens.

Cheyenne Woods throws out first pitch at Tampa Bay Rays game (PGA)

The Symetra Tour is in the Tampa Bay area this week, and several of the players took advantage of the chance to attend the Minnesota Twins-Tampa Bay Rays game on Wednesday night. They were also on hand to lend their support to fellow player Cheyenne Woods, who got to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. Tiger Woods’ 23-year-old niece is quite an athlete, not to mention the reigning Australian Ladies Masters champion, so it’s no surprise that she strode right up to the pitching rubber to make her throw — no wimpy throwing from in front of the mound for her. Not that we’re judging or anything, but Cheyenne did a little better than Lexi Thompson did at a Miami Marlins game the other day.
