HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) The golf was exceptional for Stewart Cink. What made his third RBC Heritage title truly special was that his family was there to experience his age-defying success.

Cink hugged son Reagan, his caddie, after he closed out his four-shot victory at Harbour Town with a stress-free par on the lighthouse-framed 18th hole. Wife Lisa, their other son, Connor, and his fiancee, Jess Baker, were in the gallery cheering Cink's second win this season.

"To have a posse like that waiting at the end to celebrate with," Cink said, "it's just an experience you don't get to have in your life that often."

Spectators returning in limited numbers

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) The roars returned to Masters. At least two of them.

There were enough spectators, believed to be roughly 8,000 a day, to at least bring some sound back to the gorgeous scenery of Augusta National in April. And they stood six-deep over the final 100 yards of the 18th green - masks on - as Hideki Matsuyama walked up the hill to a one-shot victory. Read More...
