    导出博客文章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

    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 --

    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

    sporting and cultural glance at Stage 7 of the Tour de France on Friday:Region:
    The stage began in LIsle-Jourdain in the Gers region and followed a
    162.5-kilometer (101-mile) route to Lac de Payolle in the Hautes
    Pyrenees.Aperitif: Hypocras, a medieval recipe mixing wine, cinnamon, ginger,
    sugar and nutmeg.Baguette and butter: British rider Steve Cummings won the
    stage, which came to a bizarre end when an inflatable arch marking the final
    kilometer collapsed. Adam Yates, a British rider with the Orica team, was hit by
    the arch and reached the finish with a bloodied chin. Greg Van Avermaet of
    Belgium, who was in a breakaway with Cummings, held on to the yellow jersey he
    claimed two days earlier. Overall favorites Chris Froome and Nairo Quintana
    finished in the main pack during the first stage in the Pyrenees.Plat du jour: A
    plate of Noir de Bigorre ham. Its one of the finest and softest cured hams in
    the world, made from black pigs fed with grass, cereals and acorns. Another
    local specialty is garbure, a mountain soup made with cabbage and chunks of
    ham.Culture: The Pyrenees are part of Tour de France lore but the most popular
    sport in the Midi-Pyrenees region is rugby, which is like a religion in many
    villages. The most-titled club in France, Stade Toulousain, has won a record 19
    French Championship titles plus foour European Cups.ddddddddddddVin du jour:
    Jurancon Sec is a dry white wine produced in the foothills of the Pyrenees with
    Gros Manseng and Petit Manseng grapes grown on mountain slopes then carefully
    hand-picked by local winemakers. Its a richly-flavored wine with floral aromas
    and a well-balanced acidity.Stat of the Day: 1. The complete peloton of 198
    riders started the stage. It was the first time in 103 editions of the Tour de
    France that the entire bunch was still racing this late.Quote of the Day: I had
    no time to react. Its a good thing it was just me on my own. It could have been
    a lot worse with the peloton sprinting at 70 kph (45 mph). Adam Yates, after
    getting hit by an inflatable arch.Dessert: The spit cake, or gateau a la broche,
    has been baked in southwestern France for centuries in wood burning ovens. The
    traditional recipe with flour, eggs, butter, sugar, salt, rum and vanilla is
    quite simple but requires patience as the dough needs to be dribbled very slowly
    over the spit.Next order: Stage 8 on Saturday is a much more challenging
    184-kilometer (114-mile) leg from Pau to Bagneres-de-Luchon featuring four
    serious climbs, beginning with the Col du Tourmalet, which is so difficult its
    labeled beyond classification. ' ' '
