Two guys who have some history on Baltimore's Hillen Road held court in yesterday's first round of the $1.7 million Constellation Energy Classic.

Jim Thorpe, who went to Morgan State on a football scholarship in the late 1960s, had the lone eagle of the day and birdied four of the last six holes to post a 6-under-par 66 at Hayfields Country Club.

Constellation Energy Classic Through tomorrow, Hayfields Country Club, Hunt Valley TV: The Golf Channel, 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. each day
