Bubba Watson celebrates his win at Riviera with son Caleb on Sunday
Pacific Palisades, California - Bubba Watson shot 64-64 over the weekend to win the Northern
Trust Open at Riviera Country Club, and his first PGA Tour victory since the 2012 Masters.
Leading by one on the 18th hole Sunday, Watson put the icing on the cake - rolling in the 14
foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole (to finish at -15) and beat Dustin Johnson by two strokes.
Watson reflected on his drought. "You never know when your last win is going to be, my last
win could have been the Masters, which would have been a great way to go out . . . but winning
here at Northern Trust is nice. I never looked down, I never felt down that I haven't won yet but
just keep plugging along and somehow it fell in my lap today."
Dustin Johnson once again played well but came up just short, with back to back runner ups at
Pebble Beach and Riviera, he looks to be a player to watch at this weeks Accenture Match Play
at Dove Mountain.
Northern Trust Monday Qualifier Jason Allred tied for third (-12) and took home $388,600 (more
than he's earned in his 103 Web.com starts combined). By virtue of his finish, Allred is now in the
field at the Honda Classic, but his wife Kimberly is due to give birth that week.
Karrie Webb celebrates her 40th career LPGA victory at the ISPS Handa Australian Open
Victoria, Australia - Karrie Webb showed the rest of the LPGA that she still has game. A
week after being disqualified at The Austrailian Ladies Masters, the Hall of Famer birdied the
last hole to win the ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open (at -12). Webb's final round 68
in windy conditions at Victoria Golf Club was stellar on a day when many of the world's
best struggled (Suzann Pettersen shot 80)
”I feel very fortunate to have won today but I liked my chances at the start of the day
because of the wind picking up,” said Webb. “If we had another day like we had the first
three days, I probably was a little too far back to have a chance, so I was thankful for the
weather changing and I played as good as I have in a very long time.”
Chella Choi struggled Sunday, shooting 74 to finish 2nd (-11). Paula Creamer matched
Webb's Sunday 68 to finish tied for 3rd with Lydia Ko and Karine Icher at -10.
