LONDON, Ont. -- Max Gilbert captured his first pro victory at the Tour Championship of Canada. Gilbert, a 23-year-old rookie from St. Georges, Que., birdied on the penultimate hole to take the lead then two-putted for a one-shot win over Trevor Murphy on Sunday. "When I arrived here this week I didnt think I could win. Its unbelievable," said Gilbert, who earned the $27,000 winners cheque after playing only one year for the Laval Rouge et Or before turning professional. After a 9-iron approach from 150 yards on the 17th hole, Gilbert rolled in a 20-footer for birdie to regain the lead at 20-under par. Murphy would give himself a 20-footer of his own at 18 to force a playoff, but his putt carried too much speed and bounced off the back of the cup, giving Gilbert a simple two-putt from 15 feet for the win. "I knew I was going to need a birdie coming in, and thought I would need another one at 18," said Gilbert. Murphy carded a final-round 68 to finish a season-best second place, while defending champion Eugene Wong of North Vancouver, B.C., shot a final-round 67 to place tied for third alongside Alex Kang. Meanwhile, Mackenzie Hughes of Dundas, Ont., won $10,000 as the Canadian player of the year on the PGA Tour Canada. The 22-year old finished with $52,114 in earnings on the season, highlighted by a victory at the Cape Breton Celtic Classic. Hughes finished first overall on the Order of Merit and will have exempt status on the Tour in 2014. Hughes will be joined on the Tour by Riley Wheeldon of Richmond, B.C., Mark Hubbard, Hugo Leon and Wil Collins. Detroit Tigers Gear .

Detroit Tigers Shirts . - The situation looked bleak at best for the coach Doc Rivers Clippers down by four points with 18 seconds left in the fourth quarter. Tigers Jerseys 2020 .J. -- Richard Sherman, Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch deservedly draw the attention for what theyve done in getting the Seattle Seahawks to the Super Bowl.CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Panthers starting free safety Charles Godfrey is out for the remainder of the season with a torn right Achilles tendon, adding to the teams troubles following a 0-2 start. Team spokesman Charlie Dayton made the announcement Monday shortly after coach Ron Riveras press conference. Godfrey, a six-year-starter for the Panthers, sustained the injury during the second half of Carolinas 24-23 loss to Buffalo on Sunday while breaking up a pass to Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson in the corner of the end zone. Godfreys injury is a huge blow to a secondary that was already considered the weak link in Carolinas defence. Godfrey, who has started 74 career games, is considered the secondarys best player. But his injury might not be Carolinas only concern in the secondary as they prepare to host the New York Giants on Sunday. Rivera said the Panthers will re-evaluate the teams other four injured defensive backs -- Quintin Mikell (foot), Josh Thomas (concussion), Josh Norman (thigh) and DJ Moore (knee) -- on Wednesday when they return to practice. Mikell and Thomas both left the game Sunday and did not return. Norman and Moore were also injured, but returned to the game later on. Rivera said if Mikell cant play the Panthers would look att Moore and Colin Jones as potential replacements for Godfrey.dddddddddddd If Thomas is unable to start at cornerback, the Panthers could turn to James Dockery and Melvin White, a pair of young players whove been inactive the last two games. The team is also considering bringing in free agents from outside the organization. Rivera said losing the 5-foot-11, 210-pound Godfrey is difficult because hes made tremendous strides since being moved from strong safety to free safety last season and had become the leader in the secondary. "Since then hes played about as well as you would like to have a free safety play," Rivera said. "Hes put himself in position to make plays and hes done the type of things you need to do to have success. "The thing youve seen is his growth. You see him doing things that a veteran defensive player is supposed to do -- giving false reads, giving bad reads to an opponent and disguising his coverages by moving in and out of coverages. You hate to see it happen because hes a guy who has really found his niche at free safety for us. You would love to have him, but we dont." Last year Eli Manning threw for 288 yards and a touchdown as the Giants defeated the Panthers 36-7 in Charlotte. ' ' '
