Watson had failed to make the United States team in Hazeltine, having played in the previous three Ryder Cups, and had suffered a loss of form that saw him fall from a career-high No2 to No117 in the world rankings.

Bubba's Sweet Spot is in Pensacola, Fla.

Bubba Watson putts on the 18th green during the final round of the Genesis Open golf tournament at Riviera Country Club.

"It was a grind full time", said the 39-year-old, who won at Riviera in 2014 and 2016.

Patrick Cantlay had a one-shot lead going to the back nine until he ran into tree trouble on the 12th and 13th holes.

"There so many emotions going through my head right now". So you never know if it's going to be the last time. "You're going to know you're going to make a mistake, especially on a Sunday, and you've got to keep fighting and hopefully your fight is better than everybody else's fight".

"Then I holed it and I was like, 'Um, I guess I can go to the bathroom.' He probably didn't like it as much as I did, but it was pretty amusing at the time".

Watson finished by quashing a remark made in the past that he'd retire if he made it to ten PGA Tour wins, which he did by winning for the third time at Riviera. His pursuit of Luiten faltered when he bogeyed 17 but even then it wasn't a horrific shot, just one that he pulled slightly.

'Today was the first day I felt bad with a putter this year, Woods said. "My goal was just to hang in there".

How and why that comment ended up on Bennight's Youtube page on September 25, 2017, is still a mystery to the bondsman. It also outlines a procedure by which law enforcement authorities can obtain the information.

Dropped shots at both 13 and 15, where Watson ground out pars then made an unlikely birdie with a hole out from the sand at 15, ended his chances.

European - Joost Luiten won the inaugural Oman Open in Muscat, to break a title drought of almost 17 months.

McIlroy has three top-three placings in his last six starts worldwide, but he has not won a tournament since the 2016 Tour Championship.

He added he had his wife Angie to thank for staying in the sport.

Watson said playing in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game "loosened me up".

Choi was relentless in pursuit, the only player other than Ko to beat par in all four rounds.

"Well, I have a auto dealership, a candy shop and a baseball team". I would rather be healthy than play golf, so that's what I was focusing on. That's why I have the best seat in the house. Or was it his caddie Ted Scott?

Durant's last win on the Champions Tour was the 3M Championship in Minneapolis on August 7, 2016. He has three victories on the 50-and-over tour after winning four PGA Tour titles. All three men have been active in supporting junior golf efforts in the Pensacola area where they grew up. On the back nine, he made three birdies.

Watson s 10th PGA Tour victory capped a halcyon week in Hollywood for the two-time Masters champion, who recorded a show with USA comedy icon Jay Leno, dropped in on comedian and chat show host Ellen DeGeneres, took in a taping of TV sitcom "The Big Bang Theory" and played in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game on Friday night.
