Chris Kirk made a par-saving 7-foot putt after an errant tee shot at the 18th hole, avoiding a playoff at Colonial and winning the Crowne Plaza Invitational by a stroke Sunday in Fort Worth, Texas.

With a closing 4-under 66, Kirk got to 12-under 268, one ahead of Masters champion Jordan Spieth (65), playing partner Brandt Snedeker (67) and Jason Bohn (63).

Spieth finished with a 20-foot birdie putt and began to prepare for a playoff when Kirk got in trouble on No. 18. Bohn shot a 6-under 29 on the front nine and also was on the range when Kirk made the winning putt.

French Open

Fan on court causes stir

The tennis produced no surprises on the first day of the French Open in Paris, but a fan who got on the court and took a cellphone selfie with Roger Federer certainly was unexpected.

The fan, who appeared to be a teen boy, approached during an on-court interview. Federer looked startled, then tried to brush the boy away. Later Federer was angry.

"I'm not happy about it. Obviously, not one second happy about it," Federer said.

Tournament director Gilbert Ysern called the security gaffe "embarrassing."

Two seeded men, No. 25 Ivo Karlovic and No. 26 Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, lost, as did two seeded women, No. 25 Peng Shuai and No. 31 Caroline Garcia.

A mistake with technological date led to Hamilton taking a poorly timed tire change and losing a 15-second lead.

"What happened? In simple terms, we got our numbers wrong," said Toto Wolff, Mercedes head of motorsport.
