SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – North Dakota State University had three athletes honored as the Summit League TicketSmarter Indoor Track and Field Peak Performers of the Week, including Jacob Rodin. At the Bison Team Cup, Rodin broke his own school record and facility record in the 600 meters to take the event title. The Kenmare native won the race in a time of 1:17.88, improving his previous NDSU all-time best of 1:18.03, as well as his facility record of 1:18.18 from last season. Rodin’s winning time ranks 12th in the NCAA this season for the 600m. He also ran a leg on the Bison 4x400m relay team that took first in a time of 3:20.63.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Captain Jared Spurgeon scored twice, fellow defenseman Jonas Brodin also had a goal with traffic in front of the net and the Minnesota Wild beat the Washington Capitals 4-2. They’ve won three in a row. The Capitals have lost four of six and are 0 for 13 on the power play during that stretch. Filip Gustavsson made 34 saves in net for Minnesota to get a four-game trip off to a strong start. Alex Ovechkin assisted on Capitals goals by Martin Fehervary and Dylan Strome. The Wild won despite being outshot 36-22. Gustavsson was excellent all night, validating the coaching staff’s decision to start him instead of going back to three-time Stanley Cup winner Marc-Andre Fleury. His 12 saves in the first period alone kept the game within reach for Minnesota despite putting just three shots on goal in the opening 20 minutes.

HONOLULU (AP) — Tom Hoge felt it was an easy decision to take a 5,000-mile detour between Maui and Honolulu so he could watch his alma mater, TCU, play for the national championship in football against Georgia. That didn’t end well for him or the Horned Frogs. Another easy decision for him was booking the flight. He left Maui after a tie for third in the Sentry Tournament of Champions at Kapalua that paid him $840,000. And he still flew coach. “I always fly coach. That’s normal for me,” said Hoge, who said he had seat 25A on the way back to Hawaii. At least it was an exit row.
Hoge, a native of Fargo, North Dakota, has never felt much reason to splurge on anything, except maybe the occasional craps table. And he’s easing up on that at the urging of his wife, Kelly, whom he jokingly refers to as the “warden” when it comes to his craps habit. “I always get an exit row and I get upgraded half the time,” Hoge said. “I try to hang onto some of this money we make, right?” It’s not all about the money. Hoge turned down an offer last year to join Saudi-backed LIV Golf, an offer that Fire Pit Collective put at eight figures. He won the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am last year for his first PGA Tour victory. He’s not into the Player Impact Program, and he would just as soon play golf courses he likes than only those with a $20 million purse attached.
Hoge, who finished 10th at his first Tour Championship, made just over $5.3 million last year with his FedEx Cup bonus. His actual career earnings are $13.2 million. He is in his ninth year on the PGA Tour, and he has made the FedEx Cup postseason four of the previous eight years. Only once did Hoge fail to get his card back through the Korn Ferry Tour Finals, and that year he got into enough events to make it work. “I’ve always taken the approach whenever my career comes to an end — for me, it’s always been trying to get that next year, and the next year — that whenever I’m done, whatever I want to do next is not based on money. I’ll have freedom to make a decision.” That might not be anytime soon. Hoge already has three top 10s this year, including Kapalua, and is No. 16 in the FedEx Cup. He is a career-high No. 30 in the world ranking, and he will be headed back to the Masters in April.
There was one time he got a little crazy with his money. “It’s been a while,” Hoge said. “I bought a fancy car when I was a little younger. I was lucky because I hadn’t made much money in my career at that point. I realized it didn’t do a lot for me.” The tour has a relationship with BMW, so he bought an X5 M. This was after a 2018 season in which he crossed the $1 million mark for the first time. And now? “I still have it,” he said. “It gets the job done.” As for his love of craps, that remains a work in progress. “I’m trying to get rid of that one,” he said. “That doesn’t pay the bills.”
