Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - Ryan Moore closed with his second straight 5-under 67 on Sunday and that helped him repeat as champion at the CIMB Classic. Moore finished at 17-under-par 271. The victory was his fourth on the PGA Tour, and first since he won this event last year. He became the first player to successfully defend a title on the PGA Tour since Tiger Woods won the Arnold Palmer Invitational in 2012 and 2013. Its has been a great week. Im a little at a loss for words to defend my title. It is something I have never done before, Moore said. It makes it that much more special to do it the way I did. I hit some great shots coming down the stretch and made some birdies when I really needed to. I just scraped in a par there at the last hole. I knew I didnt need it, but its still fun to finish that way. Kevin Na shared the third-round lead with Moore, but Na posted a 2-under 70 at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club and he dropped into a share of second at minus-14. Na was joined there by Gary Woodland (67) and Sergio Garcia (69). Woodland lost to Moore in a playoff last year at this event. Cameron Smith (68) and Sang-Moon Bae (69) tied for fifth place at 12-under-par 276. John Senden carded a 4-under 68 in the final round and he grabbed seventh place at 11-under 277. Davis Love III shot 68 in the final round and he ended in a tie for eighth at minus-10. He finished alongside Rory Sabbatini (66), Angelo Que (70), Prom Meesawat (69) and Billy Hurley III (73). Moore and Na battled throughout the round. Na opened with a birdie at the first to move one ahead, but Moore answered with a birdie at the second. Na got up and down for birdie on the par-5 third and followed with another birdie at the fourth to move two clear at 15-under. Moore inched within one as he birdied the fifth. However, Moore gave that shot right back as he bogeyed No. 6. Moore atoned for that mistake with a 5-foot birdie effort at the seventh. Moore briefly joined Na in the lead as he birdied the ninth from eight feet out. Na also birdied No. 9, from about four feet out, to get to 16-under. Moore played his third at the par-5 10th to four feet and he rolled that putt in for birdie and a share of the lead alongside Na. Moore stumbled to a bogey at the 12th and Na followed with a bogey at 13. It was all Moore from there. At the short 14th, Moore played an iron off the tee before stuffing his second shot to a foot. He made birdie to move ahead by one as Na failed to get up and down for birdie after his drive rolled just over the green. Moore converted a 7-footer for birdie at the 15th to move two clear. He failed to save par from a greenside bunker, but was still ahead by one. The 17th proved to be the deciding factor. Na pushed his tee shot right of the fairway and his ball was never found. The lost ball led to a double-bogey, which dropped him four back as Moore kicked in a short birdie try. Moore got up and down for par at the last to seal the win. Last year was a lot more stressful. I had to get up and down from 65 yards just to get into a playoff last year, Moore explained. But I made it a little too interesting there. I hit a few squirrelly shots (down the stretch on Sunday). Na closed with a birdie to share second. Garcia, who played in the final group with Moore and Na, had three birdies on the front nine and was two off the lead at the turn. But, his tee shot at the par-5 10th hit a cart path and was never found. That led to a double-bogey, which dropped him four behind. Garcia bounced back with a birdie at 11 and he made another at 14 to get back to minus-14. He closed with four pars in a row to end there. Woodland also had three birdies on the front nine. He had three more in the first six holes of the back nine. His birdie at 15 briefly gave him a piece of the lead, but Woodland parred the next two holes before closing with a bogey at the last to finish three behind. NOTES: Moore collected $1.26 million for the win ... Moore has won three of the six times he had at least a share of the 54-hole lead ... Love posted his first top-10 finish since the 2012 McGladrey Classic ... There are a pair of events next week for the PGA Tour. The top players will be in China for the WGC-HSBC Champions, where Dustin Johnson won last year, but he will not defend his title, while the remainder of the tour will be in Mississippi for the Sanderson Farms Championship, which Woody Austin won the last time the event was held in 2013. DaRon Payne Jersey . The 10-year deal the league and players agreed to that ended the 2011 lockout gave either side the right to opt out after six years. With the league projecting financial growth, there has been speculation that players will take that option in three years, especially since a new national TV contract will be in place by then.

Millsap will miss Wednesday nights game against the Chicago Bulls. The Hawks say Millsap also will be held out on Thursday at Boston.MILWAUKEE - As drivers pulled up in their cars to drop off canned goods at Miller Park, Ryan Braun collected the Thanksgiving donations and offered a warm handshake with his gloved right hand.Spring training is still more than two months away, but this is a good sign for the Milwaukee Brewers and their star outfielder.Braun said Wednesday that his right hand feels good. He is cautiously optimistic that a medical procedure performed in early October will finally fix a nerve problem near his right thumb that has nagged him since the 2013 season.My hope is it gets back to 100 per cent. Right now, I dont feel anything and I havent been able to say that in two years, Braun said. It would hurt shaking hands, writing — doing everything activities — and I dont feel that at all. Im excited about that.Days after the end of a disappointing season, Braun had cryotherapy, a procedure involving the application of extreme cold. The procedure was performed at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles.Braun was suspended the final 65 games of the 2013 season for his connection to the Biogenesis doping scandal. The Brewers had hoped the extra rest going into last off-season would address the problem going into 2014.For a while, that plan seemed to be working. Braun got off to a hot start in spring training. The career .306 hitters average was up to .327 on June 1, though his power numbers were down. The average slowly dipped in the second half. His struggles at the plate epitomized Milwaaukees frustrating September, when a team-wide slump dropped the Brewers out of first place and out of the playoffs.ddddddddddddThe 2011 NL MVP finished hitting a career-low .266 with 19 homers and 81 RBIs.I really believe if I was anywhere near healthy the season would end up differently, Braun said. Hopefully this thing continues to feel good ... and I can get back to being one of the best players in the league.Braun said his hand felt amazing after taking swings in the weeks after the procedure. He is in his typical off-season routine now, and doesnt plan to resume baseball activities until late December.The Brewers began their off-season by trading for Adam Lind from Toronto for pitcher Marco Estrada. The addition of Lind fills two glaring needs since he is a left-handed hitting first baseman.Other than that, Milwaukee has been relatively quiet so far. The club picked up starter Yovani Gallardos $13 million option. Third baseman Aramis Ramirez is returning to the Brewers after the two sides picked up the $14 million mutual option.Manager Ron Roenicke is also coming back, while Darnell Coles is taking over for Johnny Narron as hitting coach.I dont think our failure had anything to do with (Roenicke) managing, it had to do with us playing, Braun said. So definitely happy to have him back.Otherwise, Braun is also enjoying life as the father of a 2-month-old daughter. He said he wasnt getting much sleep, but otherwise called fatherhood indescribably beautiful.
