Harman's clutch birdie denies Johnson 4th straight win

Harman's clutch birdie denies Johnson 4th straight win

Johnson, who made the cut with nothing to spare, fired a second successive 67 to claim the clubhouse lead on nine under par, and a play-off looked a certainty when Harman birdied the 17th but then flew the green with his second to the par-five closing hole at Eagle Point. "I've still got a lot of practice to do to get ready for next week, but I'm looking forward to it".

It was an encouraging return for Dustin Johnson, who fell just short of achieving four straight wins in a row - which would have been all the more impressive given he hasn't played a competitive tournament since he was forced to withdraw from the Masters.

"Not much has changed". "The first couple of days I didn't play that great but really played nicely on Saturday and Sunday so I'm happy with where the game is going into next week".

He carded 68 to finish at 10-under-par 278 for his second PGA Tour victory, one stroke ahead of fellow Americans Johnson (67) and Pat Perez (68). Wie won four of the next five holes - two with birdies, and two with pars - to tie it. Yin rebounded to win the par-5 17th, and Wie took the par-4 18th with a par to force extra holes.

The American then turned up the heat on those above him on the back-nine, making birdies at 12 and 14 to put himself in contention for a first PGA Tour title since winning the 2014 John Deere Classic. I've been fighting really hard, I thought I had a good chance a couple of weeks ago at Harbour Town, really wanted that one.

Overnight leader Patrick Reed struggled in the final round, firing a three-over 75 to end up in a tie for 12th.

Which golfer won the most PGA Tour events in a row in history?

A play-off looked likely when the 30-year-old from Georgia only just managed to chip onto the green for three after flying his second at the par-five over the back of the green.

"It's surreal", he said afterwards.

The 51-year-old Daly had not won on tour since the PGA Tour's 2004 Buick Invitational. Poor tee shots on the final three holes led to mistakes that Perry and Armour could not take advantage of in trying to chase down Daly. Moments later friends and colleagues including players Esteban Toledo and Michael Allen ran out to spray their pal with champagne.

"Now, I can say I'm a champion on the Champions Tour, which is really cool", Daly said.

Kevin Sutherland was fourth at 11 under after a 67. In the morning semifinals at Club de Golf Mexico, Kim beat Mi Jung Hur 5 and 4, and third-ranked Jutanugarn topped Michelle Wie 4 and 3.

Wie will face the third-ranked Jutanugarn, a 19-hole victor over Cristie Kerr in the event that switched from stroke to match play and moved from November.
