Corey Pavin birdied the first six holes in a blistering start Saturday in the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic. The rest of his day wasn't as impressive, but the 53-year-old Pavin still walked off the 18th green with a smile on his face. He wasn't about to complain about the 5-under 67 that put him in contention for his first Champions Tour victory of the season.

''That's my longest string of birdies in a tournament ever. I got a little frisky on seven, trying to break my own record and I three-putted.
