Matt Kuchar finally put Hunter Mahan in a hole and then answered every challenge Sunday to win the Match Play Championship in Marana, Ariz.
Mahan had gone 169 holes over 11 matches without trailing in this wild tournament until Kuchar won the fourth hole of their championship match with a par, and Mahan never caught up. Kuchar took advantage of a series of miscues to build a 4-up lead at the turn, then held off a noble challenge by the defending champion.
The match ended when Mahan went from a tough lie in the bunker to a bush in the desert, and it took him four shots to reach the 17th green. Kuchar wound up winning, 2 and 1.
In his first at-bat of spring training, New York Yankees slugger Curtis Granderson broke his right arm when he hit by a pitch from Toronto's J.A. Happ in the bottom of the first inning in Tampa, Fla., and is expected to be out until the first week of May. Granderson led New York with 43 homers last season.
Ryu Hyun-jin also made his Dodgers debut, allowing a triple and getting a strikeout during one inning of work. Los Angeles signed Ryu to a $36 million, six-year deal in December, making him the first player to move straight from Korea's top league to the majors.
