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.

Jets continue mastery over Blackhawks

CHICAGO—The Winnipeg Jets were just OK for most of the first part of the season. Except for their games against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Against the Blackhawks, they were perfect.

Andrew Copp and Bryan Little scored in a 32-second span in the third period as Winnipeg continued its dominance over Chicago with a 5-3 victory on the final night before the NHL all-star break.

Raptors suffer fifth-straight loss

MEMPHIS, Tenn.—Marc Gasol scored a career-best 42 points—and the Memphis Grizzlies needed every last one of them.

Gasol's night was capped by the deciding two free throws with 36 seconds left as the Grizzlies handed Toronto its fifth-straight loss with a 101-99 victory last night.

Gasol's final free throws ended a 12-0 run by the Raptors that tied the game at 99.
