Golf • Heavy fog allowed Brian Gay a quick nap, and he no longer felt so sluggish after traveling halfway around the world 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 at St. Simons Island, Ga. The opening round could not be completed because of a fog delay lasting nearly two hours.

The timing couldn't have been better for Gay. The McGladrey Classic is the third event in Gay's unusual itinerary — four PGA Tour events in four weeks in four countries. He started two weeks ago at the CIMB Classic at Malaysia, then flew eight hours to Shanghai for the HSBC Champions. He'll finish the fall portion of the PGA Tour schedule next week in Mexico.
