- Bubba Watson picked up his 9th career PGA Tour title.
- He successfully defended his lead after the penultimate round.
- Jo Kokrak faltered as he looked to get his first victory.
Bubba Watson succeeded in winning for the second time at the Northern Trust Open in Riviera – last time he did that he went on to win the masters.
Jo Kokrak failed to capitalise on a 2-shot lead over Watson and K.J. Choi, with Adam Scott doing everything he could to remain in contention. At one point the Australian nailed four consecutive putts that covered 104 feet between them!
“He probably needs to hole it to have a chance. That’s exactly what he did.”

“You never know when your last one is going to be,” said Watson. “For me to come back and pull one out in a tough way, it means a lot, and it’s very special for my family.”

Rory McIlroy started with an eagle on his first hole but that soon became irrelevant as he bogeyed 7 of the next 17. We all know what’s round the corner as the players head to Florida.
