SPIETH STROLLS TO 30-UNDER TRIUMPH
JORDAN Spieth claimed his seventh US PGA Tour title on Sunday, routing the field to win the Tournament of Champions and match Tiger Woods for the most career victories before the age of 23.
He fired a closing round of six-under 67, capping an incredible week of precision golf to win by eight strokes.
He finished at 30-under 262, becoming just the second player in history to hit that magic 30 number.
KYRGIOS SCORES POINTS FOR GOOD BEHAVIOUR
THE pre-Australian Open spotlight will be fixed firmly on Nick Kyrgios with the exuberant young Australian heading the field at the Kooyong Classic starting today.
Days after leading Australia to only their second title at the Hopman Cup mixed-teams event in Perth, the 20-year-old has become a hot topic in the Grand Slam run-up due to his heroics on court - and his new-look good behaviour.
Kyrgios, who had frequent brushes with officialdom last season, is the top drawcard in an expanded 12-man field at Kooyong Club in Melbourne.
MAVERICKS STILL LEANING ON VETERAN NOWITZKI
DALLAS forward Dirk Nowitzki, 37 years old and with more than 1,300 NBA games under his belt, is still the Mavericks' go-to guy.
The German veteran scored a game-high 29 points on Sunday as the Mavericks edged the Minnesota Timberwolves 93-87 in Minneapolis, taking up the slack on a night when many of his team-mates struggled.
"He's a guy that's prepared himself for greatness virtually every night," Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said of Nowitzki.
