Five wild boars were found dead in or near border areas separating the two countries this month before being tested positive for the viral hemorrhagic disease, officials in South Korea said. The finding reflects the freedom with which animals roam the 4-kilometer (2.

JEJU ISLAND, Korea, Republic Of — Justin Thomas pulled away from Danny Lee in the final hour and closed with a 5-under 67 on Sunday to win the CJ Cup at Nine Bridges for the second time in two years.

Thomas won for the 11th time on the PGA Tour and the second time in his last four starts.

He was one shot ahead when Lee, the South Korea-born player who plays under the New Zealand flag, bogeyed the 15th and 16th holes to fall three shots behind.

They were the only two players who had a serious chance of winning. Lee closed with a 69 for his best finish in nearly a year.

Thomas finished at 20-under 268 and moves to No. 4 in the world ranking.

Koepka on rivalry with McIlroy: He 'hasn't won a major' since I joined PGA Tour

  Koepka on rivalry with McIlroy: He 'hasn't won a major' since I joined PGA Tour Don't bother asking Brooks Koepka about any sort of budding rivalry with Rory McIlroy. The world No. 1 shut down the narrative in true Brooks fashion Wednesday. "I've been out here for, what, five years. Rory hasn't won a major since I've been on the PGA Tour. So I just don't view it as a rivalry," Koepka told AFP from the CJ Cup in Jeju, South Korea. McIlroy, the second-ranked golfer in the world, hasn't won a major since the 2014 PGA Championship at Valhalla, the fourth of his career. Koepka matched that total in May with a victory at Bethpage, his fourth major since 2017.

EUROPEAN TOUR

SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France (AP) — Nicolas Colsaerts of Belgium ended more than seven years without a victory, shooting a 1-over 72 and surviving a wild back nine at Le Golf National in the French Open.

It was Colsaerts first victory since the Volvo World Match Play in 2012, when he was No. 32 in the world and played a role in Europe's record comeback to win the Ryder Cup at Medinah.

Colsaerts played 214 tournaments worldwide since that last victory.

This one wasn't easy, even after he stretched his lead to five shots early in the final round.

He had to chip in for eagle on the par-5 14th to regain the lead. Colsaerts gave it right back with a double bogey on the next hole. Joachim Hansen then made double bogey on the 17th hole that allowed Colsaerts to take the lead again.

Colsaerts closed with three pars for a one-shot victory over Hansen, who closed with a 68. George Coetzee, who led by two shots with six holes to play, made triple bogey on the 15th hole and shot 71 to finish two shots behind.
