Whicker: Riviera’s ill winds blow the winner’s check out of Thomas’ hands

PACIFIC PALISADES — A golf ball weighs 1.62 ounces. It can still buckle a golfer’s knees. They were writing Justin Thomas’ name on the big check Sunday morning at the Genesis Open. He was at 18-under-par and leading by five shots. Riviera’s soggy grounds and the endless days and the bone-piercing chill of the evening had not touched him all week. Then Thomas watched a birdie putt on 17 give a head-fake toward the cup at Riviera and then turn away. Thomas pointed agonizingly to his right, and the...

J.B. Holmes has strong final round to win Genesis Open

PACIFIC PALISADES — J.B Holmes is one of the longest drivers on the PGA Tour, but it was two long par putts that helped him hold off 54-hole leader Justin Thomas by one shot to win the 2019 Genesis Open title. Holmes was a shot behind Thomas when he holed a 12-foot par putt on the par-4 13th hole, bringing a fist pump from Holmes in the process. Holmes then watched Thomas four-putt from 57 feet, turning his one-shot deficit into a one-shot lead. Three holes later, Holmes managed to build his lea...
