Oppenheim shoots 63

in Q-School round

Andover’s Rob Oppenheim started off with a bang yesterday in Round 1 of the second stage of PGA Qualifying School.

He shot an 8-under par 63 to tie for the lowest score after 18 holes. The tournament is four rounds and the low 18 scores and ties move on to the final stage of PGA Q-School.

Oppenheim has some local help. Andover Country Club head pro Mike Menery is caddying for Oppenheim.

Nelson and all that Jazz

Bradford resident Jeff Nelson has been busy the last few weeks getting his part-time employer, the Utah Jazz, up to snuff on some recent and upcoming basketball games, including the Jazz trip to the TD Garden tonight.

Nelson has been busy as the Jazz’ northeast scout and has seen, in person, Toronto, Washington, Philadelphia and, of course, your Boston Celtics. Those are all the teams on the Jazz current four-game road trip.

Nelson’s report on Toronto went to good use as the Jazz beat them, 140-133, in triple OT.

Nelson, whose son Tyler, is one of the top high school basketball players in the state, will be a special guest of the Jazz during their pregame shoot-around today and he’ll be sitting behind the bench during the game tonight.

Hoops fix at NA Youth Center

If you can’t wait until the winter high school sports season to get your basketball fix, get over to the North Andover Youth Center beginning tonight when the Donovan Fall League playoffs begin.

This league is as good as it gets, barely a notch below the regularly scheduled games starting in December.

Tonight’s games are: 5:15 p.m., Andover vs. Bishop Fenwick; 6:25 p.m., Lawrence vs. Westford; 7:35 p.m., Salem vs. Methuen; and 8:45 p.m., Whittier vs. Pelham.

The winners of tonight’s games face off against St. John’s Prep, Central Catholic, North Andover and Medford, respectively, on Sunday night. The times of those games will be announced tomorrow.
