SHANGHAI -- Rickie Fowler dropped by PGA of America headquarters in Florida with the Ryder Cup trophy last week as a way to let the employees share in the U.S. celebration. The trophy stayed behind. Fowler brought memories of Hazeltine all the way to China.While the Ryder Cup was a team victory, Fowlers own contributions gave him a shot of confidence going into the HSBC Champions.He was solid from tee to green, attacked the par 5s and holed one last birdie putt Thursday for a 7-under-par 65, leaving him one shot behind Rikard Karlberg of Sweden, who made an auspicious World Golf Championships debut with nine birdies in his round of 64.Fowler had never won a match in three previous Ryder Cups before teaming with Phil Mickelson in a fourballs victory in the opening session at Hazeltine. More special was Sunday, when he overcame Justin Rose in a tight match for a 1-up victory.For me, finding a way to get a win in a singles match was big, Fowler said. Its a team victory, but I felt like I did my part to help the team. Coming out of that with a 2-1 record instead of 1-2 was important to me.He accompanied the gold trophy to Arnold Palmers memorial service, and then after emerging from a two-week break in which he didnt set foot on a golf course, Fowler and Brooks Koepka stopped by the PGA of America with the cup.Fowler hasnt won since the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship in January, and his game hasnt felt right since he lost good chances to win the Phoenix Open the first week in February and the Wells Fargo Championship in early May.It wasnt that far off. He just needed time to tighten some loose habits, and this summer of majors and Olympics didnt allow for that. But coming off a big week at the Ryder Cup, I was excited to get back into the swing of things.I got some good work in last week, he said. Its tough to do with how busy the summer was. Its tough to break a little habit.He looked sharp again, and it helped to be in a group that was making plenty of birdies in the rain-softened conditions at Sheshan International. Fowler played alongside defending champion Russell Knox, who played bogey-free for a 66, and Paul Casey, who made an eagle on the par-5 14th hole on his way to a 67.Fowler missed only three fairways and one green. He was at his best on the par 5s, leaving himself a simple up-and-down for birdie on the 14th, and twice having eagle putts on the 18th and second holes. He missed about a 10-foot eagle putt on No. 18.Its always nice to start with 7 under, doesnt matter where youre at, Fowler said. I knew with the soft conditions they were going to try to tuck some pins. It was going to be very scorable if you drove it in the fairways, and I was able to do that. Played very well tee-to-green and made things a lot easier from there. Stress-free round. Simple round.It felt even easier to Karlberg, who hardly missed a shot until the end of his round. Shortly after Fowler finished his round, Karlberg surged ahead with three birdies in a four-hole stretch on the back nine and had a chance at the course record until his last two holes.He came up short and was nearly in a hazard on the par-3 17th, but his lie was good enough to get up-and-down. On the par-5 closing hole, Karlberg drove into a bunker, caught too much sand coming out, couldnt reach the green from the rough and failed to save par. It was his only blemish of the day and he had few complaints.Karlberg only twice before has played in a field this strong -- at the British Open each of the last two years, where he missed the cut both times. He looked at the HSBC Champions as another tournament and felt as though everything was going his way.It felt amazing, every part of the game, he said. Everything was so easy. It was just one of those days, a walk in the park.The soggy conditions werent nearly as difficult as the greens, which were damaged by excessive heat in the summer and massive rain over the last week. They were particularly bumpy toward the end of the round, but Karlberg stayed aggressive on them.Knox, Daniel Berger and Hideki Matsuyama were at 66, while Casey joined Bill Haas and Francesco Molinari at 67. Nineteen players in the 78-man field broke 70.Rory McIlroy wasnt among them. He made only two birdies in a round of 71, while U.S. Open champion Dustin Johnson struggled to keep his driver in play and had only one birdie in his round of 74. Dennis Rodman Lakers Jersey . Hamelin, who triumphed in the 500 on Saturday, edged out Victor An of Russia by 0.021 seconds to maintain his lead in the World Cup standings. Russias Vladimir Grigorev was third. In the relay, Canada took control six laps from the finish line to beat Russia and the Netherlands. Michael Cooper Lakers Jersey . -- New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis is retiring after a 16-year career to become the goalie coach for the Los Angeles Galaxy. http://www.lakersbasketballshop.com/Wilt-Chamberlain-Jersey/ . -- Bryant McKinnie came out of his stance and lowered his shoulder into a practice squad player, causing a crisp thud to reverberate in the Miami Dolphins practice bubble. JaVale McGee Lakers Jersey . The next step is a better finish. Bae played bogey-free Friday on another gorgeous day at Riviera for a 5-under 66, giving him a one-shot lead over Aaron Baddeley and Robert Garrigus going into the weekend. LeBron James Jersey . Murray beat Sam Querrey 7-6 (5), 6-7 (3), 6-1, 6-3 to clinch Britains opening-round victory against the United States on Sunday at Petco Park. "Im proud of the way Im playing just now, because I had to do a lot of work to get back to where I want to be," Murray said after celebrating with his teammates on the red clay court in a temporary stadium in left field of the downtown home of baseballs San Diego Padres.
