Watson started the day with a one-shot lead over fellow American Patrick Cantlay but with the Riviera course giving up few birdies the lead changed hands several times.

Watson's 10th PGA Tour win Sunday, along with the two Masters triumphs. have now put him in a special category of players who have that many wins.

More incredible was the fact that the ball went in at all given how Watson's bunker play had been pretty awful thus far in 2017-'18.

"It takes away your confidence and then these guys can pass you real fast".

"I'm going to be at Augusta until they kick me out". This was Watson's 10th Tour title.

But like so many others, his challenge faltered on the back nine and he eventually signed for an even par 71 and a share of 14th, his best finish since a T10 in Las Vegas last November. "Then I chipped in, I started making putts and we were around the lead or leading at that time and we hung on, especially around No. 11". The Abbotsford, B.C., native shot his second straight 66 to finish tied with Mickelson at 8 under.

Watson said playing in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game "loosened me up". "Like, 'Wow, I still have a chance in this game'". Na posted a 67, Finau a 68 and Smith climbed up the leaderboard with a bogey-free six-under par 65.

ADELAIDE, Australia (AP) — Jin Young Ko of South Korea, playing in her first event as an LPGA Tour member, closed with a 3-under 69 to complete a wire-to-wire victory in the Women's Australian Open.

Tied for 42nd in the Genesis Open overnight after a disappointing, two-over 73 on Saturday, the four-time major victor birdied his last two holes to close with a three-under 68 and a likely top 25 finish on three-under par.

Joe Durant birdied five of the last eight holes for a 9-under 63 to match Steve Stricker's Saturday finish and take the second-round lead in the PGA Tour Champions' Chubb Classic.

RORY MCILROY SHOT a three-under 68 to climb into the top 20 of this week's Genesis Open and the former world number one believes he played better than his final finishing position.

The tournament victor will receive $1.296 million and a Genesis G80 Sport, the newest mid-sized luxury sedan of the brand whose parent company is South Korea's Hyundai Motor Group. On the par-4 18th, Stricker hit into the water and made a double bogey for a three-shot swing.

Watson seized control Sunday with two par putts as everyone around him was dropping shots, then pulling ahead by holing a bunker shot on the par-3 14th hole.

"I didn't play as cleanly as I would have liked, but I really stayed in it and made a bunch of putts and pitched the ball really well. This big tank is about to hit me".
