MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Phil Mickelson came to the St. Jude Classic wanting to tune up for the U.S. Open at Pinehurst by finishing strong. He did just that Thursday. Mickelson shot a 3-under 67, birdieing three of his final four holes in windy conditions before a thunderstorm softened up TPC Southwind. It was his first round in the 60s since the third round at the Wells Fargo Championship. He hadnt shot below 70 since. He missed the cut at The Players Championship and tied for 49th last week in the Memorial following a visit from FBI agents and lingering questions about an insider-trading investigation. Lefty hasnt won in 19 events dating to the British Open and is among the players in Tennessee tuning up for Pinehurst. "I did exactly what I need to do and some momentum that I need heading into the U.S. Open," Mickelson said. "Tomorrows round, the same thing. Finish strong and play a good round." Ben Crane shot a 7-under 63 giving him the lead in the suspended first round, taking advantage of the 3 1/2-hour delay that left nearly perfect scoring conditions with no wind and rain-softened greens. He had five of his seven birdies on his final nine, the last a few minutes before play was suspended because of darkness. Sixty players were unable to finish the round. Peter Malnati shot a 65, and Billy Horschel also was 5 under with two holes left to play. Retief Goosen and Joe Durant each had a 66, while Stuart Appleby, Zach Johnson and Jason Bohn were on the course at 4 under. Appleby had a hole-in-one on the 157-yard eighth hole, using a 7-iron. That was his 17th hole, and the last one he completed. Crane needed only 24 putts for his best round of the season, including a 27-footer for birdie on his final hole at No. 9 with only a handful of people watching because officials closed the course to spectators because of the high winds with the storm. "We caught a huge break being on this side of the wave," Crane said. "You know this is ideal Memphis weather. Its as good as it gets. It was calm, barely any wind. The greens softened up. We were able to attack some of the pins." Mickelelson, who tied for second at Southwind last year, was among the 53 players who finished before play was delayed. Even with tricky wind Thursday morning, Mickelson said his focus on each shot was much better. Hes trying to better visualize the shot and curve his irons so that his approach shots land closer to the hole, giving him more tap-in opportunities. Finishing with the three birdies in his final four holes was exactly what he wanted in a round with five birdies and two bogeys. He hit his approach from 135 yards on the par-4 sixth to 5 feet and rolled in the birdie putt. He left himself longer putts with a 7-footer on the par-3 eighth and an 11-footer on the par-4 ninth, but knocked them in for his strong finish. "Ive been struggling with finishing the round strong," Mickelson said. "I had a good round last week on Thursday and then played poorly. To birdie three of the last four made it a great round. Thats exactly what I need to do." Firm greens made it tough to land balls close, but Goosen credited them with helping him roll in some of his birdie putts. He sunk a couple from 5 feet or closer, but also had a couple birdie putts from 14 feet. Goosen also saved par on No. 7 with a 12-foot putt. "The greens are as good as greens as you can get," Goosen said. "The greens are rolling close to 13 on the stimpmeter. They are really good. You hit the right putt, they are going to go in." A seven-time winner on the PGA Tour, Goosen hasnt won on tour since 2009. He has two top-10 finishes this year as he continues his comeback from back surgery in August 2012. He tied for third in Memphis in 2011 and said he really likes the course. Divots: Robert Garrigus withdrew after hurting his wrist in the 18th fairway. He had a 79 that included three bogeys, a double and an 8 on the par-4 17th. ... Players will resume the second round at 7 a.m., with the second round starting approximately 40 minutes later. Markus Wheaton Jersey . -- Houston Rockets coach Kevin McHale searched more than three quarters for five guys who would play well together. Markus Wheaton Eagles Jersey .L. - Defending womens champion Alberta improved to 3-0 at the Canadian junior curling championships with a 10-3 win over Ontario in Sundays afternoon draw. http://www.eaglesrookiestore.com/Eagles-Dallas-Goedert-Jersey/. Chan captured two silver medals at last months Sochi Winter Games — mens singles and the inaugural team event. But he doesnt have the urge to resume training to defend his world title when the event is held in Saitama, Japan, later this month. Josh Sweat Eagles Jersey . -- The Chicago Bears have agreed to a one-year contract with cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Michael Bennett Eagles Jersey .  Osmond, of Marystown, N.L., fell in the middle of her routine and placed fifth in the ladies free skate at Iceberg Skating Palace (110.73 points), but that was all the Canadians needed after a strong performance by Kevin Reynolds in the mens free earlier Sunday.For most of the first period the Jets played the Blackhawks shot for shot, earned a couple of power plays but failed to score.  Then they saw the high powered Blackhawks offence connect for two goals in the final three minutes for a 2-0 lead. Chicago came into the game scoring 26 times in their previous six games. When these teams met at MTS Centre Saturday, the Jets kept Jonathan Toews off the score sheet snapping his five game point streak. After going pointless against Calgary on Sunday, Toews opened the scoring in this game slipping a back hand shot through the pads of Al Montoya at 17:29. It was his eighth of the year. With the first period coming to an end, Patrick Kane (9th) was allowed to close in on Montoya and fired one inside the far post to make it 2-0. The goal came at 19:54. Chicago outshot the Jets 12-11 in the opening period and going 0-2 on the power play again makes special teams a big part of the game. The Blackhawks welcomed Mikael Frolik back to Chicago during a commercial break in the first period. Frolik was part of the Stanley Cup winning team last spring, and received a standing ovation. Frolik acknowledged the crowd with a wave from the bench. Evander Kane took the pre-game skate but did not dress. Kane declared himself ready after the morning skate but Coach Claude Noel elected to give his injury a little more time to heal. For Montoya, it was his second straight start. He grew up in Chicago and said Tuesday he would very much enjoy playing in his home town. If not for some great saves by Montoya, and the Blackhawks Patrick Sharp finding iron on two chances, the second period could have been a complete disaster. As it was the Jets gave up another late goal as 40 minutes ended 3-0 Chicago. The Jets were badly outshot in the first 15 minutes of the period, many of the Blackhawks chances coming on the two power plays they had. After the second successful penalty kill, the Jets did create some chances and seemed to be gaining momentum until Brandon Pirri got in behind the Jets defence, went in alone and wired a shot just under the cross bar for the 3-0 lead. Hawks outshot the Jets 11-7 in the middle frame. Early in the third the Jets again created some chances but a turnover in their own zone, ended with Patrick Sharps fourth of the year making it a 4-0 game.dddddddddddd. Coach Noel reunited Bryan Little, Andrew Ladd and Blake Wheeler in the third and also changed up two of his defence pairings, Keaton Ellerby with Dustin Byfuglien and Grant Clitsome with Adam Pardy. Toby Enstrom and Zach Bogosian remained together.  The Jets got on the scoreboard with Devin Setoguchi snapping a 13 game goalless stretch with his third of the year. Byfuglien picked up his team leading 10th assist on the play, while initially it appeared as though Ellerby had picked up his first point, they reviewed the goal and it showed an Olli Jokinen tip before it got to Setoguchi. Hawks outshot the Jets 28-25. Post-game Coach Noel further addressed the Kane situation saying decisions made are based on what is best for the player. "Players always want to play. Its up to us to look out for the welfare of the player." As for Kane playing Friday, "Well assess tomorrow, talk to the training staff and go from there." As for the game, Coach Noel showed concern as some of the mistakes made "were the same mistakes we made against them Saturday. You shoot yourself in the foot and its in your net. They are a team that can finish. Theyve scored nine on us in two games." After the win against the Detroit Red Wings, the Jets were again unable to win back to back games. They have not won two in a row since the start of the NHL season. Again the Jets did some good things but turnovers and mental mistakes against Chicago are costly. How would a power play goal in the first period have changed the game? The Jets recorded 34 hits to Chicagos 16, Eric Tangradi with five, Blake Wheeler with four. Mark Scheifele was the Jets best face off man at 50%. Tangradi and Byfuglien each had four shots on goal and at 26:20 Byfuglien lead in ice time. Not dressed for the Jets in this game, Paul Postma, Mark Stuart, Jacob Trouba, Evander Kane, Jim Slater and Zach Redmond. There will be two home games for the Jets this weekend, Nashville in Winnipeg Friday (TSN Jets, TSN 1290) and San Jose Sunday. (TSN Jets, TSN 1290).
