The Plantation Course offered up far better scores without the typical wind off the west coast of Maui.Bae was in Honolulu practicing last week when he learned the South Korean government had denied an extension of his overseas travel permit. Bae has deferred his mandatory military service, and there are questions over how much time he spent at home during this deferral. He has hired a legal firm to sort out the problems, but he caused a stir back home when he was quoted as saying he would not being going back to South Korea. What he meant was that he was not required to be there while the law firm worked on it.Most players have not competed in nearly two months, except those who were at the Hero World Challenge the first week of December or played overseas. Masters champion Bubba Watson played in Thailand to close out his best year ever, and he has been at Kapalua for the last week before his shots counted. He had a 70, a reasonable start, though he has yet to break 69 in 12 rounds on the Plantation Course.Jimmy Walker and Patrick Reed, who joined Watson as the only multiple winners on tour last year who are at Kapalua, led a group at 67 that included Scott Stallings, Robert Streb and Ben Martin, who chipped in for eagle on the 18th with a shot that would have gone 20 feet by the hole if it hadnt banged into the pin. Matt Kuchar, never far from the hunt, was among those at 68.SOUTH AFRICAN OPENJOHANNESBURG (AP) — Englands Andy Sullivan shot a 2-under 70 in the South African Open to take a one-shot lead over South African star Charl Schwartzel.Sullivan had an 8-under 136 total at Glendower.

Yeah, Ill take it, Tavares said of his offensive explosion. Yes, its pretty cool. The 2001 event in Denver held the previous mark of 26 combined goals in a 14-12 North American victory over the World, but the new record was set when Jonathan Toews put his own team ahead by a 16-11 count with 5:39 remaining in the contest. Toews and Patrice Bergeron each ended up with a goal and four helpers, with Filip Forsberg, Rick Nash and Tyler Seguin adding two strikes apiece. Corey Crawford -- the last of three goaltenders to give up four goals, stopped 14- of-18 shots in the third period to earn the win. Ryan Johansen from Team Foligno picked up the MVP award, pacing his side with two goals and as many assists. Patrick Kane and Steven Stamkos added two goals and one assist apiece, while Claude Giroux totaled three points on a tally and two helpers. Marc-Andre Fleury took the loss, charged with seven goals on 16 shots in the second period. So proud of our fans for showing the world that hockey is a big deal here in Columbus, said Blue Jackets forward Nick Foligno, despite his captaining the losing side on his home rink. It was Brian Elliott in net for the third, and he obliged the winning side by giving up six scores to turn a three-goal deficit into a five-goal loss. Nash scored at 1:29 to make it 12-8, then Kane followed at 2:15 before Tavares and Voracek lit the lamp in a span of 1:17 to put Team Toews ahead by a 14-9 count with 7 1/2 minutes gone in the third. Bobby Ryan pumped one home for Team Foligno at 8:23 before Seguins shot slipped home 63 seconds later. Kane scored again and his team got within four, then Toews finally helped out his side at 14:21 and Forsberg made his contribution for a 17-11 score with 3:20 to play. Brent Burns rounded out the scoring at 18:20. The first period featured 33 shots and eight combined goals, leaving both sides tied at 4-4. Radim Vrbata opened the scoring for Team Toews at 3:09 before Ryan Getzlaf equalized at 6:33 for Team Foligno and Voracek beat Carey Price with a high shot with 9:51 gone to make it 2-1.

. . Kevin Shattenkirk and Johansen added markers in a span of 1:36 for a 4-3 game and Tavares finished the period on his lamp-lighter in the final 57 seconds. Obviously feel bad for the goalies with that many goals, Stamkos said. The fans love it, and it looked like they were having fun. It was great to see this city. They had been waiting a couple years for this game. They did it right. Ryan Suter put Toews picks back on top just 24 seconds into the second period, but Giroux struck only eight seconds later for Folignos choices. Seguin followed at 1:22, then Stamkos evened things at 2:27. Nash then opened up a clip of four straight for Team Toews, on a marker with 4:08 played. Forsberg connected at 5:56, Tavares scored again with 8:16 gone to make it 9-6 and Voracek picked up another red light at 9:22 for a four-goal spread. Team Foligno closed out the middle frame with scores by Foligno and Stamkos ahead of Tavares hat-trick tally with one minute left for an 11-8 score. It was a slow period. It felt like forever, Fleury said. I think after 10 minutes, it was six goals in already. I was like, thats a tough one. You want to have some fun, but when youre a goalie, its frustrating when it goes in. I laughed for a few, but a few of them, I cringed a little bit.
