Smith ahead in Malaysia

Cameron Smith of Aus­tralia shot a bo­gey-free, 8-un­der-par 64 on Thurs­day to take a one-shot lead af­ter one round of the CIMB Classic in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Smith started quickly, col­lect­ing five birdies on the front nine, and now leads a PGA Tour event af­ter the first round for the first time in 64 starts. He has won one pre­vi­ous PGA Tour ti­tle, tak­ing the Zurich Classic in April.

“I’ve been around here a few times be­fore. Ob­vi­ously played quite a bit in Asia,” Smith said, ac­cord­ing to the Golf Chan­nel. “So I feel like it’s just back to what it was a few years ago. So yeah, it’s pretty easy for me to read the greens and get some putts go­ing.

“I’ve been play­ing pretty good of late. Just had three weeks off, so it was a good men­tal break for me and I feel re­ally fresh.”

Poom Sak­sansin of Thai­land, Kee­gan Bradley and Xan­der Schauf­fele each shot a 65 to tie for sec­ond place.

Schauf­fele, who won the Tour Cham­pi­onship three weeks ago and was named rookie of the year, made seven birdies while play­ing with Justin Thomas, who had a 70.

Har­ris gets ex­ten­sion

The Den­ver Nuggets have of­fi­cially signed guard Gary Har­ris to a con­tract ex­ten­sion, the team an­nounced Thurs­day.

Har­ris agreed to the four-year, $84 mil­lion ex­ten­sion on Satur­day.

Har­ris, 23, av­er­aged 14.9 points, 3.1 re­bounds and 2.9 as­sists and made 50.2 per­cent of his field goals last sea­son, in­clud­ing 42 per­cent from three-point range. For his three-year ca­reer, Har­ris has av­er­aged 10.5 points while shoot­ing 46 per­cent from the field.

Har­ris would re­ceive $74 mil­lion in guar­an­teed money, with the re­main­ing $10 mil­lion through in­di­vid­ual and team bonus clauses, ac­cord­ing to the sources.

As part of the 2014 draft class, Har­ris was el­i­gi­ble for his rookie ex­ten­sion.
