Tom Kim closed with a 5-under 67 and completed a bogey-free week in Las Vegas with a victory at the Shriners Children’s Open when Patrick Cantlay fell apart on the final hole Sunday.

Kim became the first player since Tiger Woods in 1996 to win twice on the PGA Tour before turning 21. The 20-year-old South Korean won the Wyndham Championship in August to earn a tour card, and he’s been soaring ever since.

But he needed some help from Cantlay, who could have gone to No. 2 in the world with a win at TPC Summerlin.

They traded birdies along the back nine and came to the par-4 18th hole tied for the lead when it all fell apart for Cantlay. He was first to play and hooked a 3-wood left of the fairway into a desert bush in a ravine.

Kim belted driver into the fairway, and by the time he finally played his second shot to the green, Cantlay was lying four in the bottom of the pond.


Cantlay tried blasting out of the bush to no avail. He took a penalty drop. He then hit out of the desert sand and into the pond. He finished with a 35-foot putt for triple bogey, falling into a share of second place with Matthew NeSmith (66).

NHL: The Tampa Bay Lightning suspended defenseman Ian Cole pending an investigation into allegations made on social media that he sexually abused a woman when she was a minor.

Cole’s agent did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.

Among the allegations posted anonymously to Twitter on Friday by an account created last month, the person said Cole pressured her into having sex multiple times when she was a minor after he had reached the NHL.
