OPELIKA, Alabama (John Zenor/AP) — Aaron Baddeley made a 24-foot putt on the fourth hole of a playoff with Si Woo Kim to win the Barbasol Championship at Grand National.

Baddeley broke into a celebratory run off the green, tossed his club in the air and flung his cap back onto the green after his fourth PGA Tour victory. The Australian secured a two-year exemption and a spot in the PGA Championship, but not the Masters.

Both parred the first three holes of the playoff, three on 18 and the third on 17.

HARTFORD, Connecticut (Pat Eaton-Robb/AP) — Jay Fishman finds it more comfortable these days to use a wheelchair to get around, and has begun getting some help breathing from a portable ventilator.

The former Travelers CEO says he’s in “the final innings” of his battle with Lou Gehrig’s disease, the terminal neurodegenerative condition also called ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. But Fishman says he has no plans to slow down.

He still goes to work almost daily in his role as board chairman — even though he stepped down in December — and is preparing for next month’s Travelers Championship PGA Tour golf tournament at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell. He and the company are using this year’s tournament as a megaphone to raise money and awareness about ALS.
