ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. -- The largest PGA Tour playoff of the year at the RSM Classic didnt finish before darkness Sunday, and it wont include Billy Horschel when it resumes.Horschel, the highest-ranked player in the five-man playoff at Sea Island, burned the edge of the cup with his birdie putt at No. 18 on the first playoff hole. Stepping over a routine tap-in from 2 feet, he blocked it to the right and was eliminated.Mackenzie Hughes, the Canadian trying to become the first rookie to go wire-to-wire in 20 years, had a 10-foot birdie putt on No. 18 on the second extra hole and it turned away to the left. It already was plenty dark, and there was no chance to play another hole.Hughes, Blayne Barber, Camilo Villegas and Henrik Norlander were to return at 8 a.m. on Monday to finish the final PGA Tour event of the year.So much is at stake for all of them, starting with a trip to the Masters.Norlander and Villegas dont have full status on the PGA Tour this year -- Norlander received a sponsors exemption -- and a victory would take care of that. Hughes began his rookie season just six weeks ago and has a honeymoon planned in the offseason. Barber is going for his first PGA Tour victory.Hughes narrowly missed birdie chances on the 15th and 16th holes, but holed a 5-foot par putt on the 18th in regulation for a 1-under 69 to join the playoff.Norlander, who closed with a 65, stuffed a 9-iron into 3 feet on the 18th in regulation and was the first to reach 17-under 265. Barber ran off back-to-back birdies on the back nine, and he had a 12-foot birdie attempt at the 18th that he missed on the low side. He shot a 66.Villegas played the best coming down the stretch. Two shots behind with three to play, the Colombian hit an aggressive drive on the par-4 16th that set up wedge for a short birdie, then holed an 18-foot birdie putt from the fringe on the par-3 17th to tie for the lead. He made a 6-foot par on 18 for a 68.CME GROUP TOUR CHAMPIONSHIPNAPLES, Fla. -- Ariya Jutanugarn was unable to accept the CME Globe trophy when it was first being presented to her, needing both hands to hold a big plastic cube stuffed with $1 million in cash.Thats a great way to end a season.Jutanugarns breakout year ended with a haul of prizes Sunday at the CME Group Tour Championship- the LPGA Tours player of the year award, the money title and the season-long Race to CME Globe points competition that comes with a $1 million bonus.A winner of five tournaments in a year that started slowly with a major meltdown in the California desert and turned around with her winning three consecutive starts in May, Jutanugarn held off Lydia Ko for all three of those trophies.In Gee Chun made a 10-footer for birdie on the final hole to win the scoring title by the slimmest of margins, making her the first player since Nancy Lopez in 1978 to win both the Vare Trophy and rookie of the year in the same season. If Chuns final putt had not fallen, Ko would have won the Vare.Charley Hull won the tournament for her first LPGA Tour title. The English player shot 66-66 in a bogey-free weekend to finish at 19-under 269.So Yeon Ryu (67) was second, Jennifer Song (68) followed at 15 under, and Jutanugarn (69) was 14 under with Mo Martin (68) and Beatriz Recari (68). Chun (70) was seventh at 13 under.Ko (72) tied for 10th at 11 under.WORLD TOUR CHAMPIONSHIPDUBAI, United Arab Emirates -- Henrik Stenson won the Race to Dubai title for the second time in four years, and Matthew Fitzpatrick won the World Tour Championship.Stenson shot 7-under 65 on Jumeirahs Earth Course to stay ahead of his rivals in the year-long race. The Swede earned a bonus of $1.25 million as the European Tours top player.The 40-year-old Stenson, who also won the Race to Dubai in 2013, tied for ninth at 12-under 276 -- in a group that included Rory McIlroy (65).Fitzpatrick closed with a 5-under 67 to finish at 17-under 271, a stroke ahead of fellow Englishman Tyrrell Hatton (68).AUSTRALIAN OPENSYDNEY -- Jordan Spieth made a 10-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole to beat local hopes Cameron Smith and Ashley Hall for his second Australian Open title.Spieth, the American star who won the Masters and U.S. Open last year, had to sink another clutch par putt on the 18th hole at Royal Sydney to join Smith and Hall at 12-under 276.Hall and Smith each shot 66. Four players held the lead at various times on a dramatic final day, including Spieth, who was playing the Australian Open for the third time. He also has a runner-up finish (2015) to go along with his wins in 2014 and 2016.PEBBLE BEACH INVITATIONALPEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- Scott McCarron won the Pebble Beach Invitational, birdieing the par-5 18th for a 4-under 68 and a one-stroke victory over fellow PGA Tour Champions player Kevin Sutherland.The 51-year-old McCarron finished the three-course event at 10-under 278. He won twice this season on the PGA Tour Champions.Sutherland birdied four the last five holes for a 67.Andrew Putnam was third at 8 under after a 65. Braxton Miller Jersey . -- About a third of the way through the regular season, the Washington Wizards are at . J.J. Watt Jersey . -- Playing time has been limited for Maxim Tissot this season, so the Montreal Impact defender made the most of his first scoring opportunity on Saturday. http://www.officialauthentictexansstore.com/authentic-kendall-lamm-jersey.html . Fellow centre Pavel Datsyuk remains out because of a concussion. Zetterberg has 11 goals and 19 assists for a team-high 30 points, and Datsyuk has a team-high 12 goals and 11 assists. Joel Heath Jersey . The incident occurred at 19:56 of the second period of the Kings 4-2 road win over Edmonton on Sunday. Nolan punched Oilers forward Jesse Joensuu in the jaw in front of the Kings goal during a scrum. Nick Martin Jersey . William Carrier opened the scoring for Cape Breton (6-4-2), but Andrew Ryan tied the game and Brent Andrews put the Mooseheads (8-6-0) in front for good with a short-handed goal at 13:49 of the second period. OMAHA, Neb. -- Matching each other stroke for stroke, Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte surged to the wall in almost perfect sync.Phelps got there first, just ahead of the guy whos pushed him hard for more than a decade.It was like so many races theyve had before.Theres one more to go in Rio.In the latest epic of their longtime rivalry -- and billed as the last showdown in their home country -- Phelps edged Lochte in the 200-meter individual medley at the U.S. Olympic swimming trials Friday night.Ryan and I always have a great race with one another, said Phelps, who plans to retire again after his fifth Olympics. When we race each other, we bring each other to a different level.Phelps led from start to finish, but Lochte was right with him all the way. In fact, he seemed to pull even midway through the final lap, but the most decorated athlete in Olympic history managed to get to the wall in 1 minute, 55.91 seconds.Lochte was next at 1:56.22 and had no complaints about the consolation prize: his only individual race at the Olympics.I knew going into this race it was definitely going to be a dogfight to the end, Lochte said. Its been a long journey, but the journeys not over. We still have another month to get ready and show the world that the U.S. is number one.Lochte, an 11-time medalist, injured his groin on the very first day of the meet, struggled in his next few races and was down to his final chance to get a swim of his own at the Summer Games.Now, thats out of the way, which means Phelps and Lochte will get another crack at each other in South America.As a three-time defending gold medalist in the 200 IM, Phelps will be the favorite.But he knows Lochte wont be far behind, especially with a month to get over the groin issue.I dont know of another person in this world who brings out the best in me like he does, said Phelps, who has 18 golds and 22 medals overall. Neither one of us likes to lose.Phelps and Lochte actually had their first encounter on the way to the deck. Lochte, walking out right behind Phelps, stepped on the back of his sneaker.I gave him a flat tire by accident, Lochte said. Hes like, `What are you doing, trying to mess me up? I was like, `No, no, no.All was forgiven when it was over, Phelps and Lochte holding up their arms together on the deck while the sellout crowd roared.It was the end for another defending Olympic champion.Tyler Clary finished third in the 200 backstroke and called it a career, having missed out on a chance to defend the gold he won in London. He finished behind California Aquatics teammates Ryan Murphy and Jacob Pebley, who earned the two spoots for Rio.ddddddddddddMurphy grabbed the lead on the second lap and pulled away to win easily in 1:53.95, completing a sweep of the backstroke events.Pebley held on for the second spot, touching in 1:54.77 to earn his first trip to the Olympics.Clary was next at 1:55.33. He clung to a lane rope while Murphy and Pebley celebrated, before swimming over to congratulate them both.Thats it, Clary said. I couldnt be happier to be sending Team USA off with two backstrokers that I have a lot of respect for, and I know they are going to represent Team USA well in Rio.There was another sweep in the womens breaststroke, where Lilly King added a 200 victory to her earlier triumph in the 100. The 19-year-old from Indiana won in 2:24.08, while Molly Hannis claimed the second Rio spot at 2:24.39, giving the U.S. team yet another Olympic rookie.Then again, it wasnt totally a night for the upstarts.Anthony Ervin and Nathan Adrian were the top two qualifiers in the semifinals of the 50 freestyle. The 35-year-old Ervin led the way in 21.55, while Adrian was second quickest in 21.60. Both men are already on the team, with Ervin still seeking an individual event to go with his relay duty and Adrian set to defend his 100 free title from the London Games.Dont forget Cullen Jones, a silver medalist in this event four years ago. The 32-year-old was third quickest in 21.93.Katie Ledeckys bid to add another relay to her Rio program took a big blow when she finished seventh in the 100 freestyle. Abbey Weitzeil (53.28) and Simone Manuel (53.52), a pair of 19-year-olds heading to their first Olympics, earned the individual spots. Olympic veterans Amanda Weir, Lia Neal, Allison Schmitt and Dana Vollmer took the next four spots to put themselves at the head of the 4x100 free relay pool.Ledecky will likely have to settle for three individual events and one relay at these games. Her sprinting still needs a bit of work.I wouldve loved to have gone faster, but Ill take it, she said.Phelps has locked up two individual events for Rio, having already qualified in the 200 butterfly. He returned about 30 minutes after his victory over Lochte to post the sixth-fastest time in the semifinals of the 100 fly.That was good enough to send Phelps to the final Saturday night -- his final event of the trials.Then its on to Rio, where one more race with Lochte awaits.---Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at www.twitter.com/pnewberry1963 .
