SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Linebacker NaVorro Bowman said his new extension with the San Francisco 49ers provides a good example for his younger teammates.You basically have to crawl before you can walk and understand that the guys that do make the big money in this league work hard and have to wait their time to get to that point, Bowman said. Its just about motivating guys. Ive had several teammates walk up to me and say this is motivation for them. And thats what you want.The 49ers locker room leader this week signed a $44 million, four-year extension, including $20 million guaranteed, with three seasons left on his prior deal. Hes signed through 2022, when he will be 34.The four-time All-Pro missed all of 2014 after suffering tears in his left anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament in the playoffs following the 2013 season. He returned last season to lead the NFL with 154 tackles and was selected for the Pro Bowl.For me, asking for the deal, they understood why. I knew that it wasnt a popular thing to do with three years left. Its basically about being fair, he said. It just shows how good of an organization they are and honorable to their players and the work that Ive put in.When Bowman returned from injury, the 49ers were not the same team that reached three straight conference championship games and played in a Super Bowl. Gone were coach Jim Harbaugh and stalwarts Patrick Willis, running back Frank Gore and defensive lineman Justin Smith.Now, the new-look 49ers are Bowmans team in the first year of coach Chip Kellys tenure.In his second season back from the knee injury, San Francisco expects Bowman to be closer to his pre-injury form.NaVorros been great, defensive coordinator Jim ONeil said. I think hes really started to step into that leadership role and theres a lot of guys in the NFL who are lead-by-example guys. I think NaVorro has kind of taken that next step and hes a `follow me or else guy, which are the kind of leaders you need to have to have a great unit in this league.Bowman said his goal entering the NFL was to last 10 seasons and make it to the Hall of Fame. The length of his extension would run through his 14th year.You never want to leave any money on the table, but you definitely want to leave this game being able to walk, Bowman said. Me for instance, being able to keep up with my kids and things like that. I havent thought that far yet, but just glad to be locked in and finish my career as a 49er.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Dee Gordon Jersey .

Having endured plenty of wayward shots this season, the 24-year-old was feeling more positive about his game after opening with a 1-under 69 on Thursday at Oak Hill in the final major of the year. He probably hasnt felt this good since last years PGA blowout at Kiawah Island, where he was on top of the golf world after a record eight-stroke victory. Sure, its a different course. But McIlroy will take any little edge he can get. "To come back here, it gives me some confidence," he said. Taking advantage of a venerable course softened up by overnight showers, McIlroy played especially well on the front nine other than knocking his ball in the water at No. 5, leading to a bogey. Four birdies put him on the leaderboard at the turn with a 3-under 32. Alas, he couldnt keep it going. The back side started with back-to-back bogeys before play was halted because of approaching thunderstorms. Still, it had to be encouraging to McIlroy that he pulled himself together during the 71-minute break. He birdied the 12th, shook off a bogey at the 17th and scrambled for par at the final hole after an errant tee shot. Asked if he considered the round a success or just plain frustrating, McIlroy left no doubt where he stood. "Today was definitely positive," he said. "I felt like I played really, really well." Certainly good compared to the way its gone most of the yeaar.dddddddddddd. After changing equipment, McIlroy has been trying desperately to recapture the form that carried him to dominant victories in both of his major championships. McIlroy wasnt much of a factor at either the Masters or the U.S. Open, and was downright lost at the British Open three weeks ago. He opened with an 8-over 79, pretty much assuring he wouldnt make it to the weekend before he even got to Friday, the most embarrassing moment coming when he putted his ball into a bunker. "Sometimes, I feel like Im walking out there and Im unconscious," he moaned at the time. "Its a very alien feeling." McIlroy thought about consulting a sports psychologist, but didnt follow through. He dismissed the advice of six-time major champion Nick Faldo, who suggested McIlroy was spending too much time worrying about his off-the-course pursuits. The youngster just kept heading to the range, confident he would eventually sort things out. This seemed to be a step in the right direction. Now, hes got to do it again. The goal is "consistency day to day or hole to hole, focus on each and every shot and try not to think ahead too much or think about anything else and really just focus on my shot," McIlroy said. "That is what Im trying to do." He is four strokes behind co-leaders Jim Furyk and Adam Scott. "You get off to a good start tomorrow," McIlroy said, sounding much more hopeful, "you are right there."
