GOLF-CADILLAC CHAMPIONSHIP

DORAL, Fla. (AP) -- J.B. Holmes tamed the Blue Monster course at Doral with a 10-under 62. That's good for a four-shot lead after the first round of the Cadillac Championship. Ryan Moore is alone in second.

The top 50 golfers in the world are entered in a tournament for the first time since the 2012 PGA Championship.

France's Alexander Levy shot a 4-under 68 and is tied with Rickie Fowler and Dustin Johnson for third place.

This is the first of the World Golf Championship tournaments of the year.

GOLF-PUERTO RICO OPEN

RIO GRANDE, Puerto Rico (AP) -- PGA Tour rookie Mark Hubbard is the leader through one round of the PGA's Puerto Rico Open in Rio Grande. Hubbard opened with a 4-under 68 that puts him one stroke ahead of Billy Mayfair, Chris Smith and Emiliano Grillo. David Duval, Jonathan Byrd, J.J. Henry and Alex Cejka (CHAY'-kah) are among 11 players at minus-2.

LPGA-SINGAPORE

SINGAPORE (AP) -- Inbee Park and Yani Tseng (YAH'-nee SEHNG) both shot 6-under 66 to share the lead after the opening round of the HSBC Women's Champions. Angela Stanford trails by a shot with No. 1-ranked Lydia Ko in a group that is two strokes back. The 17-year-old Ko went into the event on a two-tournament winning streak.

NFL-MOVES

UNDATED (AP) -- Peyton Manning has passed his physical and signed his revised contract with the Denver Broncos.

The five-time MVP agreed to a $4 million pay cut to $15 million, but he can earn all of it back through incentives.

Manning mulled retirement after the Broncos' playoff loss to the Indianapolis Colts. But he determined he still had the health and hunger to keep playing at age 39.

Elsewhere:

-- Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer says he has restructured his contract to help with the team's salary cap status and improve the roster. Palmer says he's recovering from surgery to repair a torn ACL and hopes to be ready for OTAs this summer.

-- The Carolina Panthers have signed Pro Bowl tight end Greg Olsen to a three-year contract extension that will keep him with the team through the 2018 season. Olsen went to his first Pro Bowl in 2014 after catching 84 passes for 1.008 yards, both new franchise records for a tight end.

-- The agent for Darnell Dockett says the defensive tackle has signed a two-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers, keeping him in the NFC West after playing all of his 10 NFL seasons with Arizona. The 33-year-old Dockett sat out all of 2014 with a season-ending knee injury suffered during training camp.

-- The NFL says Panthers defensive end and soon-to-be free agent Greg Hardy will be allowed to sign a new contract even if he remains on the commissioner's exempt list. He still faces a possible suspension from the league even though his conviction on two counts of domestic violence was dismissed Feb. 9 following a successful appeal.

-- Vince Wolfork says the Patriots have told him they won't pick up his option. The formidable defense tackle has spent his entire 11-year career with New England, helping to win two Super Bowls.

-- Two of the Oakland Raiders' big free agent acquisitions from last season are no longer with the team. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew retired and defensive end LaMarr Woodley was released by the team.

-- The Kansas City Chiefs released veteran linebacker Joe Mays as they attempt to free up much-needed salary cap space before the start of free agency next week. The Chiefs saved about $3 million by parting with Mays.

NASCAR-KURT BUSCH

DOVER, Del. (AP) -- Delaware prosecutors say they will not file criminal charges against NASCAR driver Kurt Busch following allegations of domestic violence by his ex-girlfriend.

NASCAR indefinitely suspended Busch last month after a Delaware Family Court judge said the former champion almost surely choked and beat Patricia Driscoll last fall. But the Delaware attorney general's office says that there was not enough evidence to bring criminal charges.

NBA-LOWER AGE LIMIT

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- An attorney for the union representing NBA players has strongly indicated the association will again want the age limit for turning pro lowered in the next round of collective bargaining.

National Basketball Players Association general counsel Gary Kohlman expects the issue will be a contentious one with the NBA. Commissioner Adam Silver has often said he favors raising the limit from 19 to 20 in the next labor deal.

MLB-SPRING TRAINING

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -- Rangers ace Yu Darvish left his spring training debut with tightness in his right triceps after pitching a scoreless first inning Thursday against Kansas City. He threw 10 of 12 pitches for strikes before leaving for precautionary reasons.

A Rangers spokesman said he would be reevaluated Friday.
