TENERIFE, Spain (AP) Garrick Higgo matched Tiger Woods' record to become joint quickest to three tournament wins since 1990 with victory at the Canary Islands Championship on Sunday.

The 21-year-old South African had a hole-in-one on his way to a 7-under 64 that secured him his third European Tour title - and second in three weeks.

McIlroy affirms opposition to new league

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Rory McIlroy returned to the site of his first PGA Tour victory and made it clear Wednesday that he is more interested in creating his place in history than chasing Saudi-backed money in a proposed super league.
