Fowler snaps drought

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla.—Rickie Fowler didn't care about pretty. He cared about winning.

Staked to a four-shot lead, Fowler hit one putt into a sprinkler hole and a tee shot into the water.

But when his lead was cut to one shot, Fowler answered with two big birdie putts to regain control and finished off a four-shot victory in the Honda Classic.

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.
