Adam Scott of Australia plays during the first round of the Australian Masters golf tournament in Melbourne on Thursday.
Unheralded local player Nick Cullen upstaged defending champion Adam Scott by shooting a sparkling six-under 65 to take a two-shot lead after the opening round of the Australian Masters on Thursday.
The 29-year-old Cullen Cheap Cornellius Carradine Jersey , ranked well outside the world's top 300, grabbed a share of the lead with compatriot Scott after a sublime chip-in for eagle on the par-four 11th, then left the US Masters champion in his wake by rolling in three more birdies on a chilly, blustery day at Royal Melbourne.
Enjoying a rich vein of form, Scott teed off early and carded a solid four-under 67 to sit tied for second with German Maximilian Kieffer.
The world No.2 caught fire with four straight birdies in the middle of his round, thrilling hundreds of fans that stuck by him through a drizzly morning Cheap Eric Reid Jersey , but he marched straight to the practice range to bash a few dozen balls in frustration after his ball-striking wavered in the closing holes.
"Sixty-seven around here is a good score," Scott said after a five-birdie round marred only by a solitary bogey on his second last hole.
"I felt like I left a couple out there but my game is in pretty good shape and four rounds like that might go a long way this week."
Having won the Australian PGA Championship at a canter on Sunday, the 33-year-old remains well-placed to sweep the country's three marquee tournaments, with the national Open title in Sydney to come.
Little-known Kieffer made a mockery of the adage that practice makes perfect as he joined Scott on four under -despite having never played the course's back nine.
On his first trip down under to play the World Cup of Golf for Germany, the 23-year-old missed out on a hit on the back nine in the lead-up due to jet lag and poor weather, but relied on caddy Graeme Heinrich Cheap Daniel Kilgore Jersey , a Melbourne man and publisher of golf course yardage books, to talk him through the layout.
"My expectations were very low because my preparation was not as it should be but it was good fun and a good learning experience," Kieffer said.
World No.8 Matt Kuchar, who will defend his World Cup of Golf title for the US, this time with Kevin Streelman, at the same course next week Cheap Bradley Pinion Jersey , is six behind Cullen after battling to an even-par 71.
Former world No.1 Vijay Singh canceled out four birdies with five bogeys on the way to a scratchy 72 to be a further stroke adrift.
BEIJING, July 22 -- "Qigong master" or "swindler", photos of Svengali Wang Lin cozying up to China's biggest celebrities had already made him famous, even before he was detained on suspicion of murder.
Wang, 63, claims to be a master of qigong Cheap Joe Staley Jersey , a combination of a martial art and meditation. He was detained this week along with three others in east China's Jiangxi Province in connection with the murder of a local businessman who was once his disciple.

What really set Chinese social media alight is Wang's penchant for pictures of himself, often waving handfuls of harmless snakes that he has conjured from thin air, arm-in-arm with the nation's favorite stars, most corrupt officials and richest business people. Here's Wang with Alibaba's billionaire chairman Jack Ma; now Wang and Jackie Chan. Look, it's Wang and pop singer Faye Wong! And now we see Wang snuggling up to actress Zhao Wei. The list goes ever on... Jet Li; Stanley Ho; corrupt former railways minister Liu Zhijun; Zhu Mingguo, a former senior official from Guangdong Province expelled from the Party for corruption...
Netizens have not been hesitant to mock this elite group Cheap Trent Brown Jersey , but thus far, Wang's famous selfie buddies have remained stubbornly silent.
"Be they politicians, actors or sports stars, the underpants of Chinese elites were ripped off," Wang Shuo, a famous Chinese writer and playwright Cheap Zane Beadles Jersey , wrote on Sina Weibo. "These people lack basic knowledge of science, are intellectually weak and lack social responsibility. When scum become the elite, it is the sorrow of the times."
Writer Wu Xiaobo, however, defended Wang's celebrity followers in a widely shared article, saying those who consulted Wang should not be ridiculed.
"Those who went to see Wang are merely curious about life. They have a passion for seeking the truth about the human body and the unknown and just asked the wrong person. Curiosity kills the cat Cheap Dontae Johnson Jersey ," Wu wrote, arguing people should stand in awe of "special powers" like qigong.
Wu's comments directed the discussion on to whether celebrities should publicly worship mystics like Wang.
"It's not a problem if the elite worship qigong masters, because it's a matter of personal choice," said Hu Saimeng, commentator in Asian Newsweek. "It says a lot about their taste, aspirations Cheap Earl Mitchell Jersey , spiritual cultivation and pursuits."
Some have speculated Wang and his ilk are popular among celebrities because they serve as brokers between corrupt officials and themselves, conduits to the highest strata of corrupt connections.
Wang has been lampooned in the media before, accused of amassing a huge fortune through fanciful claims of curing illness, even cancer.
The murder victim, Zou Yong, a company president Cheap George Kittle Jersey , was kidnapped on July 9 and killed sometime after. Zou was introduced to Wang in 2002. In a TV interview in 2013, Zou told how he paid 5 million yuan (800,000 U.S. dollars) in 2009 to become Wang's disciple. Zou claims that Wang then extorted nearly 30 million yuan from him.
Wang has been previously investigated for possession of a gun, unlicensed medical practice, bribery. Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Sports Jerseys Wholesale Shirts Wholesale Shirts China Cheap T-shirts China Cheap T-shirts China Cheap College Hats Cheap Soccer Hoddies
