Marc Leishman posted an 8-under-par 30-32=62 in the final round of Travelers Championship and waited for over two hours to see who would best that mark until he was the last man standing, earning his first PGA TOUR title at 14-under 68-66-70-62=266.

The Aussie navigated TPC River Highlands without a blemish, as he circled eight birdies with the rest pars. He jumped out to a quick start, making birdies on five of his first eight holes. He then added back-to-back birdies on the 13th and 14th before failing to birdie the drivable par-4 15th. He added a final birdie from 16'10" on the 17th before settling for par on the last. He split 12 (of 14) fairways and landed 14 GIR while needing just 24 putts to the tune of a 1.429 average. With this victory, he is now eligible for the WGC-Bridgestone and the PGA Championship. He now heads to Congressional where he will compete in the AT&T National.

Local man George Coetzee will take on a rain-drenched Royal Johannesburg & Kensington GC when he goes in search of a second victory at the Joburg Open in South Africa.

Heavy rain in the build-up has softened the two courses (East and West) used this week and caused the pre-qualifier at nearby Houghton Golf Club to be called off Tuesday with the course waterlogged. Coetzee has seen a variety of weather conditions in this event down the years but has connected six top 25s since 2011. The highlight was his three-shot win in 2014, the 19-under total giving him the first of a trio of European Tour wins (two coming in South Africa). Coetzee, who was also T3 at this venue in 2013, has finished in the top 55 on the Race to Dubai for the last six seasons. He's currently 43rd this time despite cashing in just 50% of his starts so far. The highlight of those six events was T7 in the Dubai Desert Classic earlier this month. He warmed up for this week with T14 in the local Sunshine Tour's Dimension Data Pro-Am last Sunday although the 30-year-old started the Sunday of that tournament in a tie for the lead. Gamers shouldn't hesitate to get him on board this week.

Adam Scott took home the hardware after the 2016 Honda Classic and returns this week for a chance to defend his title at PGA National's Champion Course.

World No. 7 eased into his victory last year, opening with an even-par 70 to find himself T23 after day one. From there he posted rounds to 65-66-70 to land one clear of runner-up Sergio Garcia and four clear of Blayne Barber and Justin Thomas. The most remarkable part of that victory was surviving a quad-bogey 7 at the par-3 15th in round three. On the week he put on a ball-striking clinic, gaining 4.7 strokes off-the-tee and 7.7 strokes approaching-the-green. Last week, Scott posted a T11 at the Genesis Open, his first start in the States since the TOUR Championship in September. The Aussie deserves to be a top-tier pick in all fantasy formats this week.

Joey Garber took top honors at today's open qualifier into this week's Honda Classic, firing an 8-under-par 31-32=63 to seal his seat. Joining him from the qualifier will be Ryan Armour (7-under 64) and the two survivors of a 5-for-2 playoff taking place tomorrow morning.

Garber is a qualifying machine. He played in four events last season, Monday qualifying into three of those events and receiving a sponsor's invite into the other (Wyndham Championship). The Georgia Bulldog also received a sponsor's exemption for his PGA TOUR debut at the 2014 Travelers, his only start prior to last season. For Garber, that means 4-of-6 PGA TOUR appearances have been hard-earned. Despite his stellar track record on Mondays, he's finished outside the top 70 in four of his five starts. That's not to say the upside is not there for Garber, as he posted a T13 at the 2016 Barracuda Championship. Gamers can safely avoid Garber for fantasy purposes, but he is an interesting name to watch on the leaderboard this week. Tomorrow morning Nicholas Lindheim, Stephen Gangluff, Jonathan Randolph, Brett Drewitt, and Julian Etulain will vie for the last two spots.

Brandon Stone has won two of the last six European Tour events he's contested on home South African soil and will look for more success in this week's Joburg Open at Royal Johannesburg & Kensington Golf Club where he's rated the clear favourite for victory with the bookies.

The 23-year-old made the breakthrough with a two-shot win in the 2016 BMW South African Open last January before he scored a dominant six-stroke victory in November's Alfred Dunhill Championship, the opening event of this season's Race to Dubai. So far in the Joburg Open he's 3-for-4 with a best of T16 in 2014. He added T28 last year and was T46 on debut in 2012 so hasn't quite been able to crack the code at this venue yet. After finishing T31 in defense of his South African Open title, the former University of Texas grad tried his luck on the PGA TOUR last month but failed to cash at the CareerBuilder Challenge or Farmers Insurance Open. That may be where his future lies long term but the experience will have done him good and he showed no dip in confidence when returning to the European Tour a week later to take T7 in a quality field at the Dubai Desert Classic. This is first start following a two-week rest since that top 10.

PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 141 Wesley Bryan back-pedaled to a 1-over-par 35-37=72 in today's final round of the Genesis Open to finish up his tourney debut on 11-under 273, falling two places into a career-best four-way T4, six shy of champion Dustin Johnson.

The 2016 Web.com Tour Player of the Year began the final frame in solo 2nd, five back of the would-be-champ and reigning PGA TOUR Player of the Year. Due to no re-pairing between Rounds 3 and 4, he played out of the eighth-to-last threesome, teeing off 1 hour and 10 minutes before Johnson, coincidentally both Colombia, South Carolina, natives. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and found 11 greens in regulation, posting a pedestrian 1.818 putts per GIR, -1.225 SG: Putting and 30 putts total. Bryan circled four birdies but outbalanced them with five bogeys, four failed scrambles and a 3-putt from 9'4" at the third. This was his 13th career start, ninth as a member, and brushes aside a previous-best T8 at the 2016 John Deere Classic.

World No. 231 Scott Brown smoothed a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the Genesis Open to post 12-under 272, up three places to joint second, five back of champion Dustin Johnson.

This was the 33-year-old's fourth appearance and first top 10. His previous best was T39 last year (71-69-68-73). It's also his first top 10 of the season in eight starts, seventh straight cash, but first inside the top 40 (T41, Farmers). The Augusta, Georgia, native records his first top 10 on TOUR since T5 at the opposite-field Puerto Rico Open 47 weeks and 21 starts ago. Incidentally, the PRO is also site of his lone TOUR victory (in 140 career events) back in 2013. Brown began the finale in a four-way T5 on 8-under after laps of 68-68-69. He outpaced a lone bogey-4 at four with birdies at holes 1, 3, 6, 16 and 17, posting 1.545 putts per GIR and 3.566 SG: Putting, pacing the field in the latter with a cumulative 9.808.

World No. 3 Dustin Johnson played 36 holes on Sunday at the Genesis Open, concluding with an even-par 33-38=71 and a 72-hole tally of 17-under 267, good for a 5-shot win over Thomas Pieters and Scott Brown. It's his 13th PGA TOUR title in 206 career starts and ascends to No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking for the first time.

Since the Ranking began (at the 1986 Masters), the 32-year-old becomes just the 20th player all-time to achieve the No. 1-ranking. In order to attain the top spot, he had to win and now-former No. 1 Jason Day had to finish worse than a three-way tie for third (he finished T64). With the victory, the South Carolinian joins Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer as players to have won at least once in their first 10 seasons on TOUR. After opening in 66-66-64, he amassed a 5-shot lead thru 54 holes and maintained the margin exchanging three birdies with three bogeys on seven (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation. This was Johnson's fifth start of the season and third top 10, arriving off a previous-best 3rd at last week's AT&T Pro-Am. It's his first win since the 2016 BMW Championship, also as the 54-hole leader, and sixth top 5 (fourth straight) at Riviera in 10 tries.

Making his tourney debut, World No. 47 and sponsor invite Thomas Pieters hung up a bogey-free 8-under-par 31-32=63 in the final round of the Genesis Open to post 12-under 272, up 25 places to solo 2nd, seven back of the leader on the course Dustin Johnson and tying the low round of the week. UPDATE: With play completed, Pieters finished co-runner-up, five back of champion Johnson.

With a 4-1-0 record at last year's 41st Ryder Cup, the 25-year-old was the top point-getter for either team, accomplishing the feat as a Captain's Pick and Cup rookie. He also came in 4th at the 2016 Rio Games, closing with 6-under 65. The Belgian is a three-time winner on the European Tour, most recently at the 2016 Made In Denmark, and was making his seventh career start on the PGA TOUR. After opening in 70-68-71, the University of Illinois product began R4 on 4-under (T25), 13 adrift of 54-hole leader Dustin Johnson and eight back of second place. He circled eight birdies on 14 greens in regulation, posting 1.500 putts per GIR and 5.607 SG: Putting. Pieters' previous-best round was 66 and his previous-best finish was T14, both at the 2017 WGC-HSBC.
Feb 19 - 6:53 PM

Second-round leader and World No. 3 Dustin Johnson painted a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-32=64 in the two-day third round of the Genesis Open to post 17-under 196, good for a 5-shot lead over TOUR rookie Wesley Bryan, who shot 63.

After opening in twin 66s, the 32-year-old led by one over Pat Perez, who shot 74, and Cameron Tringale, who shot 71. He'll play the final round with both again however, as there is no re-pairing taking place in an effort to get done on Sunday. The South Carolinian, blemish-free over his last 41 holes, didn't get any of his third frame completed on Saturday (darkness), so he toured all 18 on Sunday morning. Johnson mustered six (of 14) fairways but pelted 15 greens in regulation, circling seven birdies, highlighted by a trip-birdie finish, with all seven dropping from inside of 13 feet. He was a 54-hole leader/co-leader twice last season, converting at the BWM Championship and finishing T6 at the TOUR Championship.
Feb 19 - 3:12 PM

World No. 53 Kevin Na styled a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the two-day third round of the Genesis Open for a 54-hole tally of 10-under 203, up four spots on the live leaderboard to solo 3rd with third- and final-round play in progress.

This is the 33-year-old's 14th appearance with two top 10s, including a best of solo 3rd in 2011. After opening in 67-69, he began R3 in a four-way T7 on 6-under, four adrift of 36-hole leader Dustin Johnson. The Las Vegas resident had just teed off on Saturday when play was suspended, so he played all 18 holes on Sunday morning. He circled an eagle-3 at the first (from 8'1") and birdies at 11 (23'0") and 16 (12'10") on seven (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, posting a pedestrian 1.800 putts per GIR but a tidy 3.185 SG: Putting. Na's lone victory in 332 prior career starts remains the 2011 Shriners.
Feb 19 - 2:43 PM

Making his tourney debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 141 Wesley Bryan enjoyed a career-low 8-under-par 33-30=63 in the two-day third round of the Genesis Open to post 12-under 201, up 18 spots to T2 and good for the 54-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With third-round play completed, Bryan is in solo 2nd, five back of leader Dustin Johnson, who shot 64.

Second-round leader Dustin Johnson, the reigning PGA TOUR Player of the Year, is the leader on the course at 14-under with five holes to play. Bryan, the 2016 Web.com Tour Player of the Year, began the third round T20 on 4-under (69-69), six back of Johnson. He was 2-under thru four holes (on Saturday) when play was suspended and returned Sunday morning to finish off his first half with birdie-2 at 6 and bogey-5 at eight. The 26-year-old drove the par-4 10th, dropping eagle from 4'1", and then circled birdies at 11, 14 (from 25'8"), 16 and 17 (26'7") to post the low round of the week thus far. This is his 13th career TOUR start, ninth as a member, and the 63 eclipses a previous-best 64 in R2 of the 2016 John Deere, where he posted his lone top 10 with T8.
