John Connelly led Toledo-area competitors in the opening round with a 3-under 69.

Former Toledoan Ken Corliss, John Martin of Port Clinton, and Tom Herzan of Findlay share the lead in the senior division after first-round 70s.

• MONTREAL Tiger Woods said anyone who tests positive under golf s new drug policy should pay a steep price.

Given our reputation in our sport, how honorable our sport is and always has been and will continue to be, I think that the penalty has got to be somewhat significant, Woods said in a conference call to announce the field for his Target World Challenge.

The World Golf Foundation, comprised of major golf organizations around the world, announced last week that a drug policy would begin in 2008. The PGA Tour has yet to disclose the full list of banned substances until it can share it with the players, and commissioner Tim Finchem said details such as how and when to test as well as penalties are still being worked out. He said testing could begin as early as next spring.


LOS ANGELES Boxer Jackson Bussell of Reno, Nev., died a day after collapsing at the end of a six-round bout. He was 28.

Bussell was admitted to a hospital Thursday in grave condition after a fight in Calabasas sanctioned by the California State Athletic Commission. He collapsed in the ring immediately after the bout, which ended in a draw with Javier Garcia.

• MESA, Ariz. Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson pleaded guilty to charges of drug possession and driving under the influence stemming from a traffic stop last year as he was leaving a nightclub.

Tyson quietly acknowledged to a judge that he had cocaine and was impaired when he was stopped for driving erratically in Scottsdale on Dec. 29.

He pleaded guilty to a single felony count of cocaine possession and a misdemeanor DUI count and faces up to four years and three months in prison when he is sentenced Nov. 19.

Police stopped Tyson after the boxer had spent the evening at Scottsdale s Pussycat Lounge. An officer said he saw Tyson wiping a white substance off the dashboard of his black BMW and that his speech was slurred. Authorities said they found bags of cocaine in Tyson s pocket and in his car.


TAMPA Martin St. Louis scored two power-play goals to lead the Tampa Bay Lightning past the Detroit Red Wings 4-3 in a preseason game.

Most of Detroit s regulars didn t make the trip.
