PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Tiger Woods ended a weekend of verbal sparring with Garcia by doing what he does best Sunday -- closing out tournaments.
Tied with Garcia with two holes to play, Woods won by finding land on the last two holes for par to close with a 2-under 70.
Garcia was standing on the 17th tee shot, staring across the water to an island as Woods made his par. He took aim at the flag with his wedge and hung his head when he saw the ball splash down short of the green. Then, Garcia hit another one in the water on his way to a quadruple-bogey 7. He completed his stunning collapse with a tee shot into the water on the 18th, making double bogey.
PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Jack Butler, who helped revolutionize the way cornerbacks played in the NFL during his Hall of Fame career with the Pittsburgh Steelers, died Saturday after a lengthy battle with a staph infection. He was 85.
Butler's son John said his father's heart stopped Saturday morning. The elder Butler spent the last few months dealing with a staph infection that plagued him since his career ended in 1959.
The Pittsburgh native intercepted 52 passes during his career, including a league-high 10 in 1957. He made the Pro Bowl four times and was chosen first-team All-NFL three times before a knee injury in 1959 ended his career.
SEATTLE (AP) -- If the NBA Board of Governors denies the pending sale and relocation of the Kings, the Seattle group seeking to purchase the franchise has a backup deal with the Maloof family.
The backup agreement would have the Seattle group, led by investor Chris Hansen and Microsoft Chairman Steve Ballmer, purchase a limited ownership of the Maloofs' stake in the Kings. The limited partnership would be a purchase of at least 20 percent of the stake at a value of $600 million.
If the backup plan is used, the Maloofs would retain majority ownership of the franchise and continue to run the team in Sacramento. Hansen's group would hold a two-year right to purchase a majority interest of the franchise at a later date.
MANCHESTER, England (AP) -- As red-and-white ticker tape flew into the rainy sky above Old Trafford, a beaming Alex Ferguson hoisted up the Premier League trophy for a 13th and final time.
Behind Britain's most successful soccer manager stood his jubilant squad of players, dancing to a soundtrack of "Champions, Champions" being belted out by more than 76,000 fans.
It was the end of an era at Manchester United on Sunday as Ferguson coached his final home match for a club he has led for nearly 27 years. And he had a 38th piece of major silverware to celebrate.
Ferguson leaves the game a true winner with 13 league titles, two Champions League titles, five FA Cups and four League Cups. He has managed 1,499 games for United.
MADRID (AP) -- Serena Williams kept the No. 1, and added No. 50.
Williams beat Maria Sharapova 6-1, 6-4 in the final of the Madrid Open on Sunday to retain her No. 1 ranking and collect her 50th career title, while Rafael Nadal eased by Stanislas Wawrinka 6-2, 6-4 for his fifth title since returning from a knee injury.
The second-ranked Sharapova would have overtaken the top ranking with a win, but Williams stormed out to an early lead as Sharapova struggled with her serve.
The 31-year-old Williams, playing in her first red clay final since 2002, dominated Sharapova from the start as the Russian never managed to steady her erratic serve.
