KAPALUA, HAWAII (AP) - Steve Stricker never looked comfortable at Kapalua until he walked off the Plantation Course with the same five-shot margin that he started with Sunday in the Tournament of Champions.
Right when he felt as if he was letting everyone back into the hunt, Stricker birdied his last four holes for a 4-under 69 that restored his cushion going into the Monday finish in Maui.
Webb Simpson had a 30-foot birdie putt on the 14th hole for a share of the lead. He missed. Jonathan Byrd had a 4-foot birdie putt on the 16th for a share of the lead. He missed that one.
Stricker, after a two-putt birdie on the 15th, chipped in for birdie on the 16th hole, then knocked in short birdie putts on the last two holes.
Through three rounds, Stricker now is 13-under par on the five closing holes at the Plantation Course.
EAST LONDON, South Africa (AP) _ Louis Oosthuizen holed a 35-foot birdie putt on No. 17 to top fellow South African Tjaart van der Walt and retain his title at the Africa Open.
The former British Open champion beat Van der Walt by two shots after closing with a 6-under 67 for a 27-under total of 265 at the season-opening European Tour event.
Van der Walt shot a 69 to finish one shot ahead of Retief Goosen, who also carded a 69 at East London Golf Club.
Oosthuizen and Van der Walt were tied with two holes to play but Oosthuizen’s birdie and Van der Walt’s bogey at the short par-3 No. 17 finally separated the pair.
It was the 29-year-old Oosthuizen’s fourth European Tour title and first since his win in East London in 2011, while Van der Walt again missed out on a first professional victory.
