2019 Genesis Open report: What happened at Riviera?

Yet another week of weather disruption plagued the PGA Tour which led to a long day of golf on Sunday as the majority of round three was yet to be completed.

Once the final round was underway, the four-shot lead that Justin Thomas held over JB Holmes at the beginning of the last 18 disappeared.

It was seemingly Thomas’s to lose and that turned out to be the case. His putter was cold throughout and despite not taking three or more putts in his last 190 holes, he would do that twice on the back-nine.

But despite his painfully slow play, which we will get onto later, Holmes played some exceptional golf to ensure he would lift the trophy.

Having gained the lead on the 10th and quickly lost it again with a bogey at the 11th, but that wasn’t the end of it.

As former World No. 1 Thomas made double-bogey at 13, Holmes made sure he would not be beaten and holed a number of clutch par putts down the stretch, with the 16th a particular highlight.

The third member of the final grouping, Adam Scott, again putting with the flag in throughout but struggled to get anything going.

Jordan Spieth’s round made for a tough watch as he shot 10-over through the first 10 holes. Among other blemishes this was largely thanks to a triple-bogey at 5 and quadruple-bogey at 10.

Si Woo Kim and Marc Leishman both made final round charges but, in the end, fell just a little short finishing on 12 and 11-under-par respectively.

Onto the WGC Mexico we go.
