Patrick Reed knows what to do with a lead. The 23-year-old Texan went wire to wire to win the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship on Sunday at the Blue Monster at Trump National Doral. It was his third victory in his last 14 starts on the PGA Tour and he had the lead heading into the final round in all three. “To go wire to wire in a field like this means a lot,” said Reed, who started the day with a two-shot lead and shot an even-par 72 to win by one shot over Jamie Donaldson and Bubba Watson.

SOCHI, Russia - The team that bulldozed its way through the Sochi Olympic hockey tournament while averaging five goals a game exited the semifinals meekly, unable to score once. Team USA's speed was neutralized and its in-your-face attitude pushed right back in its own face by Canada, which had been pushed to the brink by Latvia - Latvia? - in the quarterfinals and has been subjected to daily roastings from armchair critics back home. In a dramatic turnaround, Canada raised its game to an art Friday.

SOCHI, Russia -- It was a gold-medal sweep for U.S. snowboarders in the slopestyle event this weekend at the Winter Olympics. Whereas Sage Kotsenburg's trip to the top of the podium was unexpected, Jamie Anderson was one of the favorites on the women's side in the newly minted Olympic sport. Still, it was anything but straightforward at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park on Sunday afternoon. Anderson pulled it out late, in stirring fashion, putting down a 95.25 score on her second and final run. Enni Rukajarvi of Finland took the silver (92.50)

Jamie Anderson came to Russia armed with support and will leave with a precious object to put alongside her mantra beads and clear quartz power stone. An Olympic gold medal. FRAMEWORK: View the best images from the Sochi Olympics Anderson completed a weekend sweep for the United States in the new slopestyle event, winning the women's competition Sunday with an all-out performance in the second run, scoring 95.25, a run marked by clean landings.

Call it a tale of two sides of the capitalist system: JPMorgan Chase & Co.'s Jamie Dimon got $20 million for being CEO in 2013; each Oakland Raiderette got $1,250 for kicking up her heels in the same year. The Raiderettes are suing ; presumably, Dimon is smiling - all the way to the bank. True, the Raiders had another lousy year in 2013, though I'm not sure how much blame can be put on the cheerleaders. But as Forbes' Halah Touryalai wrote about our banker friend : “Despite what was arguably the bank's worst year under Dimon's reign, JPM's board is awarding the CEO a 74% raise which includes over $18 million in restricted stock.” Or, to quote a Raiderette: “Sis, boom, boooooooo.” It isn't fair.
