I feel like I should've won that thing.

"It was very hard; you just have to kind of be on with everything and the last 11 holes, I drove it poorly and I putted poorly", Scott said.

McIlroy posted a final round 69 that could have been even better if he had not missed a birdie chance at the 17th hole, before a fluffed approach at the 18th ended his challenge, finishing three shots behind the victor in a tie for fourth on -11.

"We wanted to put on a good show for everybody, so me and Justin thought we'd three-putt a couple of times from short distances", Holmes joked in a greenside interview.

"I'm working hard, and I practice and go to the gym, apart from smoking and drinking", Jimenez said.

Tournament host Tiger Woods (72) tied for 15th, eight strokes off the pace, on a marathon day when the leaders had to complete 34 holes after bad weather backed up play on Thursday.

It was perhaps surprising given that he'd been ranked 202nd in strokes gained putting heading to Riviera, yet led that statistic for the week - a stat Thomas had been leading until he self-destructed over the 13th and 14th holes on Sunday afternoon.

"J.B. won. He played great", Thomas said of his fellow Kentuckian, whom he has known since he was a kid.

"I'm just happy to finally be a part of the club", said the 20-year-old Korda at the trophy presentations.

Leishman backs up in the World Golf Championship event in Mexico City this week. Wind, cold. I was at 10 (under) and I slipped four shots coming in.

Maybe the biggest break for Holmes was at the par-4 seventh, when his wedge from a bunker didn't clear the lip and buried into the grass framing the sand.

But a nightmare run of poor driving and putting saw him plummet from contention.

"You're going to miss a few out there", Scott said.

He found a fairway bunker on the way to dropping a shot at the eighth - but he was two-under through his first five holes of the final round.

For Thomas, the loss was tough, not only because he felt he should have won, but because J.B. has been something of a mentor to him for more than 15 years. Rory McIlroy nearly got back in the game when he holed a bunker shot on the 16th to get within two shots, but he failed to birdie the par-5 17th and was fooled by the wind in making bogey on the final hole for a 69.

South Korea's Si Woo Kim finished third at 12 under, thanks to a final-round 66.

Rick Lamb (64) and Jimmy Stanger (68) tied for third at 23 under. He shot 81, his second-highest score as a pro.
