Rahm adds name to list of rising stars

SAN DIEGO—Jon Rahm of Spain added his name to the burgeoning list of young stars yesterday with his big game and a big finish at Torrey Pines.

Rahm made two eagles over the final six holes—the last one a 60-foot putt from the back fringe on the par-five 18th hole—for a five-under 67 to win the Farmers Insurance Open by three shots for his first PGA Tour victory.

Rough return for Tiger

SAN DIEGO—Tiger Woods had a rough return to the PGA Tour yesterday but two Canadians found themselves in the top three after the first round.

Woods, playing in a PGA Tour event for the first in 17 months, fell apart on the back nine of the South Course at Torrey Pines and wound up with a four-over 76, leaving him in danger of missing the cut at the Farmers Insurance Open.

Spieth romps to tourney title

KAPALUA, Hawaii—The view from the top looks as spectacular as ever for Jordan Spieth.

He was standing in the 18th fairway yesterday at Kapalua, his victory in the Hyundai Tournament of Champions easily secured, when his thoughts were interrupted by a comment from caddie Michael Greller: “Way to make a statement.”

The statement was nearly as big as his eight-shot victory.
