Holmes rallies to win marathon finish at Genesis Open

J.B. Holmes rallied from a four-shot deficit in the final round and won a marathon finish Sunday in the Genesis Open for his first victory in three years. JB Holmes ended a brutal final day of the Genesis Open as a PGA Tour winner for the fifth time after clinching a one-shot win over Justin Thomas at Riviera. With the best part of two rounds to complete on Sunday, victory looked to be Thomas' for the taking when he fired a second-straight 65 to claim a four-stroke advantage at the 54-hole stage, only to falter early in his final round to open the door for the chasing pack. Thomas had momentum on his side early on Sunday when he made four birdies in six holes around the turn and added another at 17 to get to 17 under and, after a 20-minute break, he opened his final round with a confident birdie before beginning to lose his way at the next. Holmes then suffered the indignity of a three-putt from barely three feet at the long 11th as Thomas birdied to reclaim his lead, but the world No 4 then looked crestfallen as he trudged off the 13th green having needed four attempts to get down from the back of the putting surface.
