first_img Kisner comes good ST SIMONS ISLAND, Ga (AP): Kevin Kisner ended a year marked by runner-up finishes with his first PGA Tour victory yesterday at Sea Island. With the RSM Classic in his hands, Kisner ran with it. His three-shot lead turned into a six-shot lead at the turn, and he breezed home with a 6-under 64 to win by six shots over Kevin Chappell. Kisner became the sixth first-time winner in the fall start of the new season, though this was hardly a surprise. He became the first player in nearly 70 years to lose three times in a play-off. He was runner-up in a World Golf Championship two weeks ago in Shanghai. Husbands lands brace TORONTO, Canada (CMC): Patrick Husbands won twice but came up short in the feature Glorious Song Stakes, on the ten-race card at Woodbine on Saturday. The 42-year-old Barbadian took victory in race six with favourite West L.A Girl before following up with another win in race seven aboard 7-1 chance Magni. However, paired with 5-1 bet Conquest Babayaga in the Glorious Song over seven furlongs, Husbands was forced to settle for second, 1-1/2 lengths behind eventual winner, favourite Ami’s Mesa, ridden by Luis Contreras.
