Ángel Cabrera scratched out a 1-up victory over Phil Mickelson in the final match of the 10th Presidents Cup, but the United States Team ends the week with an 18.5-to-15.5 victory.

Given the United States needed just four wins in the final session to claim the Cup, it was unlikely that this match would mean anything. Mickelson was 1-up with two holes to play, but then stumbled on his final two holes. Perhaps he began celebrating a bit early. The United States is now 8-1-1 in Presidents Cup play, and cashed in on being heavy favorites when the week started. The 2015 Presidents Cup will be contested at Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea in Incheon, South Korea.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Beginning on No. 10 tee, World No. 12 Justin Rose navigated the two-day third round of the Genesis Open in 6-under-par 30-35=65 for a 54-hole total of 8-under 205, up 34 places to T6 with play still in progress.

After opening in 69-71, the 36-year-old began R3 (on Saturday) T40 on 2-under, eight back of 36-hole leader Dustin Johnson. He kicked off with back-to-back birdies on 10 and 11, from 12 feet and 9'6", respectively, and remained 2-under thru four holes when play was suspended (darkness). The Olympic gold medalist returned on Sunday morning to add birdie-2 at 16 (from 11'4") before squaring consecutive bogeys at 17 and 18 (failed scrambles). He got them both back splashing home eagle-3 at 1 from 42'11" and then circled 6, 8 and 9 from between seven and 27 feet. Rose hit 11 greens in regulation, posting a stellar 1.364 putts per GIR and 4.969 SG: Putting.

Local resident Brett Rumford completed his dominant week at the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth in Australia by beating Phachara Khongwatmai 2&1 in the final to claim his sixth European Tour title.

Playing at his home Lake Karrinyup course, Rumford had dominated the 54-hole stroke play portion of the tournament by finishing five shots clear of the field to secure top seeding for Sunday's match play section. As one of the eight seeds, Rumford had a bye in the first round and then overcame Hideto Tanihara (2&1), Wade Ormsby (2nd shootout hole) and Adam Bland (1 hole) on the way to the final. He started the six-hole championship match against Thai teenager Khongwatmai by putting his approach to three feet to earn a concession but lost the second after a poor drive. Rumford holed from 10 feet at 4 to go 1up and sealed victory with a superb tee-shot to two feet at 5. World No. 274 Rumford, who lost his card last year, will have an exemption until the end of the 2018 season after claiming his first win since the 2013 Volvo China Open. "It's amazing, particularly being a new format, the first winner of that," said the 39-year-old.

The third round of the Genesis Open in Pacific Palisades, California, was suspended at 5:43 pm PST due to darkness, with a scheduled restart at 6:50 am Sunday.

The two-day second round was finally completed at 3:49 pm on Saturday. 71 players (70 pros, one amateur) survived the 36-hole cut and began the third round at 4:10 pm in threesomes off both sets of tees. Open-qualifier and PGA TOUR rookie J.T. Poston is in the penultimate threesome off No. 1 tee following a second-round 2-under-par 31-38=69 (four birdies, two bogeys) on 10 (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation. He did not get his third frame underway on Saturday so he'll start the third round tomorrow morning in a three-way T4 on 7-under 135, two back of 36-hole leader Dustin Johnson.
