PALM HARBOR, Fla. Erik Gustafsson Jersey . -- Matt Every made the best of the worst conditions Thursday at Innisbrook. Danny Lee, finally, seems to be playing good golf in any weather. They were among a four-way tie for the lead after the opening round of the Valspar Championship, a day so challenging that 3-under 68 was the highest score to lead after the first round in the 14-year history of this event. Pat Perez and Greg Chalmers also had 68s to share the lead. Every was the only one among the leaders to play in the morning, when the temperatures were in the mid-50s and felt even colder because of a strong wind. He had three birdies on his last four holes, all of them about 15 feet or longer, and was five shots better than he would have hoped when he teed off. "I would have been satisfied with 2 over today," Every said. "It was tough. This morning you couldnt feel your hands. The wind was brutal." The temperature warmed under full sunshine in the afternoon, though that only helped a little. Only three players broke 70 in the morning, with the average score nearly 3 1/2 shots over par. Eight players broke 70 in the afternoon, and the average for the day turned out to be 72.6. Lee was in the last group, and how he got to Tampa Bay explains why he was one of the leaders. The former U.S. Amateur champion had missed every cut this year, and six straight dating to the OHL Classic in Mexico last November. That changed last week in the Puerto Rico Open, when he posted all four rounds in the 60s to finish second to Chesson Hadley. That got him into the field at Innisbrook, and Lee kept right on rolling. He ran off three birdies in five holes to start his round and was the only player all day to reach 4 under with a birdie on the par-5 first. He dropped his only shot on No. 6 when he failed to get up-and-down from the bunker. "I gained a lot of confidence after last week playing with the finish in Puerto Rico," Lee said. "It really helped me a lot with that confidence stuff, and Im hitting it really well right now. My ball striking is the best its ever been, especially with the putting. I got the new claw grip -- still working great, which is fantastic." Only 25 players managed to break par. Matteo Manassero, who didnt break 74 in four rounds at Doral last week, was in the large group at 69 that included Nicolas Colsaerts and Bill Haas. Russell Knox, who lost in a four-man playoff two weeks ago at the Honda Classic, was in the group at 70. John Merrick made bogey on his last two holes for a 70, while Peter Uihlein made birdie on two of his last three holes, including a 35-foot putt on his last hole, for a 70. This is a big week for Uihlein, a European Tour member, who is No. 73 in the world. He has only two more tournaments to try to get into the top 50 in the world and become eligible for the Masters. Justin Rose, at No. 7 the highest-ranked player in the world at Innisbrook, Luke Donald and 20-year-old Jordan Spieth were among those at 70. More cold was expected Friday morning before the warming trend returns the rest of the week. That means Lee, Perez and the others could face wind and cold at the start of their second round. Lee can only draw comparisons with his game, not the course or the conditions. He had never been to the Copperhead course, regarded by many as perhaps the best tournament course in Florida. He played a practice round Tuesday and jokingly said he would have shot about a 90. "I was shocked how hard it was," he said. "Without the wind and the cold weather -- even were playing in nice weather -- its a very tough golf course." Every traded birdies and bogeys until a strong finish. He made birdie putts of 15 feet on the sixth and seventh holes, and then made a 20-foot birdie putt on the par-3 eighth and he made par from a fairway bunker on his last hole. "Ive played enough to know the first round doesnt matter that much," Every said. "This place is just going to be about not making doubles and taking yourself out of the tournament." Perez played well on the West Coast, earning nearly $1 million, and then took three weeks off. He worked a little with his coach, but felt some rust early, so he was happy to get around Innisbrook at 68. And he was lucky to be playing late. "Definitely the guys that teed off at 7:40, 7:50, they had the hardest of what were going to see this week," Perez said. "I think so far we got the good side."

Babcock, going into the final year of his deal with Detroit, says hes either going to get a new contract with done before the season starts or wait until after the season to see what happens - a decision thats fine with general manager Ken Holland. "At the end of the day, that makes the most sense," Holland told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com on Thursday morning. "Our team doesnt need an everyday Mike Babcock watch all year long. We are going to talk in September, and well see where we go." Babcock, whos entering his tenth season with the Red Wings and led the club to a Stanley Cup in 2008, added that the decision to leave contract talks on the table after the puck drops is the best route to take. "One hundred percent, because the players deserve my total attention and commitment to winning hockey games and not talking about conntracts," Babcock told LeBrun. Custom Chicago Blackhawks Jerseys. "Ken Holland and I have a great relationship. I have a great owner. I like Detroit. I have no concern at all with my situation. Well find a way to get a deal worked out. But its not like Im in any rush. If it happens, it happens, if not, well get it done at the end of the year." Babcocks resume also includes leading the Anaheim Ducks to the Stanley Cup Final in 2003 and coaching Canada to gold at the World Hockey Championship and World Junior Hockey Championship. Topping it off is his crowning achivement for Canada - coaching the Olympic Mens Hockey Team in 2010 and 2014 and winning the gold medal both times. "The guys got an opportunity of a lifetime," Holland added. "Hes an unrestricted free agent. Hes 52 years of age. His stock isnt going to get any higher. Hes coming off his second Olympic gold. He was finalist for coach of the year. People feel the job he did last year with our team was as good as hes done here in a number of years."
