Now that she's officially a millionaire, Lydia Ko said she'll have to keep a closer watch on where her paychecks go.

"I'll probably see that going into my mom's account," she joked, referring to the $210,000 she got for winning the Marathon Classic on Sunday in Sylvania, Ohio.

The 17-year-old broke free from a late tie with So Yeon Ryu, hitting a wedge to 4 feet for birdie on the 72nd hole. Ryu missed a 6-foot birdie putt on the par-5 18th that would have forced a playoff.

Ko became the youngest player to top $1 million in career earnings on the LPGA Tour. She's 17 months younger than Lexi Thompson. Ko closed with a 6-under 65 for a 15-under 269. Ryu had a 67 at Highland Meadows.

NBA

Cleveland plans to sign No. 1 overall draft pick Andrew Wiggins this week, according to sources. ESPN.com reported the Cavaliers' delay in signing the former Kansas star has nothing to do with the prospect of Wiggins being dealt to Minnesota as part of Cleveland's ongoing trade discussions for Kevin Love. The Cavs, sources say, are merely exploring options for using their $1.4 million in remaining cap space before signing Wiggins to a contract that will pay him $5.5 million as a rookie. But once Wiggins signs, league rules stipulate the Cavs must wait 30 days before trading him.

  • Milwaukee was awarded the contract of Kendall Marshall, who was waived last week by the Los Angeles Lakers.
