Robert Garrigus shot an eight-under-par 64 to win the Children's Miracle Network Classic, allowing him to keep his PGA Tour card and atoning for his collapse this year in Memphis. Garrigus finished three shots clear of Roland Thatcher at Lake Buena Vista, Fla., for his first tour victory. Thatcher shot a final-round 72 and kept his playing privileges, blowing a four-stroke lead but staying on the tour. The victory was sweet redemption for Garrigus. He made a triple bogey with a three-shot lead on the final hole at Memphis, then lost to Lee Westwood in a playoff.

In a sport that isn't lightning fast to begin with, Kevin Na has earned a reputation as one of the slowest players on the PGA Tour. His glacial pace at the Valspar Championship over the weekend has revived calls for golf to institute a basketball-like shot clock. Don't look for Na -- who was cited for pace of play during the third round -- to support a change.  "I got criticized but I really don't think it's fair," he said after the tournament. "I was just playing my game.

The Northern Trust Open is a home game for Jason Gore. He lives in Valencia, so he commutes to the tournament. However, he said he wasn't sure what he would do this weekend, even joking about finding a dorm room at Pepperdine to avoid the dreaded "Jamzilla" on the San Diego Freeway. The freeway was so clogged Wednesday - days before the freeway closure - that Gore followed a suggestion to keep going east on Sunset Boulevard, then take the 101 to the 170 to the 5. Safe to say he'll never try that route again, because it turned a 32-mile drive home into a two-hour, 45-minute slog.

The NHL's self-imposed deadline for a full 82-game schedule passed without a new collective bargaining agreement in place. As a result, the league was intending to pull its most recent offer to the players off the table because it was contingent on the sides' completing a deal by Thursday, according to a report. The move has been widely expected, considering the league said as much last week. And the NHL Players' Assn. viewed last week's proposal as a take-it-or-leave-it offer.

Reporting from La Quinta -- Mark Wilson's 10-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole of the Palmer Private wasn't exactly a stab in the dark but more like a punch in the twilight and whether Wilson could totally see the hole or not, he stood as a winner because of it. Wilson's birdie on the final hole clinched the Humana Challenge golf tournament Sunday at the PGA West Palmer Private course. Wilson earned a check of $1,008,000 and showed an aptitude for playing golf well in the conditions of extreme wind gusts, the dim light of dawn and the advancing chill and darkness of the desert night.

Reporting from La Jolla -- Kyle Stanley said his game plan is to play boring golf, which might not be the best slogan to sell the PGA Tour. But it is working for Stanley, a 24-year-old from Gig Harbor, Wash., who has a one-shot lead after two rounds of the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines. Stanley shot a second-round 68 on Friday on the tougher South Course for a two-day total of 14-under-par 130. He is a stroke ahead of Brandt Snedeker (64), who had hip surgery less than three months ago; and two shots ahead of tour rookie Sang-Moon Bae (67)

kapalua, hawaii ? Robert Garrigus recovered from an atrocious start Saturday by holing a 50-foot eagle putt on the 18th hole to join Steve Stricker and Jonathan Byrd in the lead at the Tournament of Champions. In the notorious Kona wind ? the toughest at Kapalua ? Garrigus chunked a four iron into a hazard to open with double bogey and followed with a bogey to quickly fall out of the lead. By the end of the third round, he was back where he started. The eagle gave Garrigus a four-under 69 and gave him a good chance to become the first player since Tiger Woods in 2000 to win the season opener after winning the final event of the previous year.

So many humans charged up the leaderboard on the Monterey Peninsula's toothless Thursday that some of them were bound to defy belief. So up around the top you had a guy who owes his career partly to a perceptive grandfather and a BMX cycle accident in a mud puddle, a guy who quit golf after 2006 to enter sales for a Las Vegas nonprofit, and a major winner who hasn't played the event since 2000 because, well, he didn't like it. Question: "Why didn't you come back here?"

Rory McIlroy was the last man standing Sunday in the star-studded BMW Championship at Crooked Stick Golf Club in Carmel, Ind., winning by two strokes over Phil Mickelson and Lee Westwood with a five-under-par 67 in the final round. The 23-year-old from Northern Ireland, a two-time major winner who is ranked No. 1 in the world, earned his fourth victory of the PGA Tour season and became the first golfer since Tiger Woods in 2009 to win back-to-back events. The 23-year-old won the Deutsche Bank Championship last week at TPC Boston.
