won the Hero World Challenge with a performance that tournament host
Staked to a 7-shot lead, Spieth blew away an elite field at Isleworth and set two tournaments records Sunday when he closed with a 6-under 66 for a 10-shot victory over Henrik Stenson in Windermere, Fla.
It was the second straight runaway victory for the 21-year-old from Texas. Spieth won the Australian Open last week by 6 shots.
He finished at 26-under 262, breaking the tournament record of 266 set by Woods in 2007 and Davis Love III in 2000 at Sherwood Country Club. Woods closed with a 72 and tied for last in the 18-man field.
SKIING Lara Gut of Switzerland won the women's World Cup super-G, with Lindsey Vonn finishing second in Lake Louise, Alberta.
Gut was timed in 1 minute, 18.46 seconds. Vonn was 0.37 seconds behind and Tina Maze of Slovenia was third.
Vonn was coming off a victory in Saturday's downhill. The four-time overall World Cup champion is returning to the circuit after missing the Sochi Olympics and undergoing a second knee operation.
American Ted Ligety used a powerful second run to win a World Cup giant slalom in Beaver Creek, Colo., despite a broken wrist.
In fourth place after the opening pass, Ligety found speed where others couldn't on a deteriorating course. He finished in a combined time of 2 minutes, 34.07 seconds. Alexis Pinturault of France was second, and Austria's Marcel Hirscher ended up third.
BASEBALL When baseball officials last gathered in San Diego for the winter meetings, no free agents reached agreements and players claimed collusion, leading to the first of three grievances against owners and eventually a $280 million settlement.
The annual get-together is back starting Monday. This time, the average salary has soared from $372,000 to about $3.5 million. But one thing hasn't changed from 1985: the Kansas City Royals are defending AL champions.
Since then, offense has boomed with the Steroids Era and then gone bust in a new Age of the Pitcher. With offense at the premium, teams have pursued hitters with greater urgency this offseason, leaving pitchers Max Scherzer, Jon Lester, and James Shields still searching for deals.
HORSE RACING Nasa went gate-to-wire to win Saturday's $100,000 Pennsylvania Nursery at Parx Racing. A son of Smarty Jones, owned and bred by Smarty's owner Patricia Chapman, Nasa became the first offspring of the Kentucky Derby and Preakness champion to capture the same stake his father had done so dramatically 11 years ago. Trained by John Servis of Smarty Jones fame, Nasa went off as the second choice in the wagering and paid $6.60 to win.
OLYMPICS IOC president Thomas Bach issued a final plea for members to support his wide-ranging reforms, warning that "we are not living on an island" and the Olympic movement must act now to remain relevant or risk being forced to change by others.
Speaking on the eve of a two-day meeting of the IOC general assembly, Bach laid out his 40-point "Olympic Agenda 2020" reform package that includes a revised bidding process, a more flexible sports program, and creation of an Olympic television channel.
