BOCA RATON, Fla.—Scott McCarron eagled the par-5 18th hole yesterday to win the Allianz Championship for his third PGA Champions Tour victory in his last 17 starts.
The 51-year-old McCarron hit a 7-iron shot from 179 yards to 6 feet to set up the eagle, his second of the day after an 80-foot putt on the par-5 seventh.
PEBBLE BEACH, Calif.—Jordan Spieth barely could stand up and worried his hat would fly off in the middle of his swing.
From 176 yards downhill to the par-three 11th green at Monterey Peninsula, he ripped a four-iron and hoped for the best.
When he saw it land about six feet from the flag, he declared to anyone within earshot, “That's the best shot I've ever hit.”
OKLAHOMA CITY—The Cleveland Cavaliers considered resting their stars, then played the Oklahoma City Thunder at full strength and lost anyway.
Russell Westbrook scored 29 points, and had his 26th triple-double of the season, to lead Oklahoma City to a 118-109 victory last night.
TORONTO—Frederik Andersen is headed for one of the busiest seasons in NHL history.
The 27-year-old is on pace to face 2,173 shots in his first season with the Toronto Maple Leafs in what would be the 15th-highest total ever.
Only 31 times in NHL history has a goalie faced even 2,100 shots in a single season—Pekka Rinne and Cam Ward the last to do so five years ago.
TORONTO—Vladimir Tarasenko strode through the neutral zone, dipped around a Maple Leafs' forward, deked out another, and then fired a shot past Frederik Andersen to clinch another victory for the suddenly red-hot St. Louis Blues.
The Blues improved to 4-1-0 under new head coach Mike Yeo after edging the Leafs 2-1 in overtime at the Air Canada Centre last night.
PEBBLE BEACH, Calif.—Jordan Spieth, still only 23, was amazed that this is the fifth time he has played the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
He's been watching it even longer.
Erik Guay phoned up the mountain to teammate Manuel Osborne-Paradis after laying down a winning time in the super-G at the world alpine ski championship yesteray.
His scouting report helped put two Canadian men on the world championship podium for the first time in the 44-year history of the biennial event.
At 35, Guay became the oldest skier to win a world alpine title.
ST. PAUL, Minn.—Sure, no game is a must-win this time of year.
Still, the Chicago Blackhawks couldn't afford to slip much further behind the Minnesota Wild.
Jonathan Toews scored a power-play goal 3:09 into overtime to lift the Blackhawks over the Western Conference-leading Wild 4-3 last night.
With the win, the Blackhawks closed within five points of Minnesota.
MINNEAPOLIS—That Andrew Wiggins came through with a huge night against his hometown team didn't come as a surprise.
That he did it with Lance Stephenson by his side certainly qualified as one.
Wiggins scored 31 points, and Tyus Jones hit a three-pointer with 19.5 seconds left, as the Minnesota Timberwolves beat the Toronto Raptors 112-109 last night.
