Wells fires ace in Three Rivers Scramble

Nate Wells scored his first hole-in-one on Saturday at the Three Rivers Scamble Better-Ball Tournament at Emerald Hill Golf Course in Sterling.

Wells aced hole No. 2 with a 7-iron. The shot was witnessed by his teammate Brody Wolf, and playing partners Tommy Houzenga and Mitch Milnes.

Johnson cruises to
St. Jude victory

Dustin Johnson emphatically reclaimed the No. 1 ranking Sunday, holing out for eagle from 170 yards on the final hole for a six-stroke victory in the St. Jude Classic in Memphis.

Johnson shot a 4-under 66 for his second PGA Tour victory this year and 18th of his career to take back the No. 1 ranking he held for 64 straight weeks before dropping down a month ago. He won the event for the second time, finishing with the eagle, three birdies and a bogey for a 19-under 261 total.

Johnson, who shot four rounds in the 60s, turned in the lowest score under par by a winner here since David Toms won at 20 under in 2003, and that was before the course was redesigned with par dropped from 71 to 70 after the 2004 tournament.

Andrew Putnam started the final round with a share of the lead for the first time in his career. He shot 72 and finished at 13 under.

Park notches first LPGA win

Annie Park won the ShopRite LPGA Classic for her first LPGA Tour victory, closing with an 8-under 63 for a one-stroke victory over Sakura Yokomine on Sunday in Galloway, N.J.

The 23-year-old Park, from Levittown, New York, had an eagle and six birdies on a cloudy day over the Bay Course at Stockton Seaview to complete 54 holes at 16-under 197, a stroke off the tournament record.

Yokomine, the winner of 23 events on the Japan LPGA Tour, flirted with a 59 but parred the par-5 18th for a 61 to tie the course record.

New Jersey native Marina Alex was third at 14 under after a 64. She made a hole-in-one at the par-3 17th.

Lehman wins after final round called off

Tom Lehman won the Principal Charity Classic when final-round play was washed out at Wakonda Club in Des Moines, Iowa.

Tournament officials delayed the start of the third round by nearly 5 hours because of bands of light but persistent rain before calling the event.

Lehman shot a 7-under 65 on Saturday to reach 13 under and take a two-shot lead over Bernhard Langer, Glen Day, Woody Austin and Scott Parel.

Mets want Reyes
to retire

The New York Mets want to give infielder Jose Reyes a proper sendoff. Only problem is, Reyes might not be ready to quit.

SNY’s Andy Martino reports that the Mets are trying to get Reyes to hold a retirement news conference. The 35-year-old Reyes has a slash line of .139/.205./.194, and his .399 OPS is the fifth-lowest among MLB players with at least 70 plate appearances this season.

But Reyes may still want to play, and may prefer to be released so he can pursue an opportunity elsewhere.
