Marc Leishman Comes out on Top in Farmers Insurance Open

Third-ranked Jon Rahm seized the lead of the Farmers Insurance Open yesterday while Rory McIlroy chased the world number one spot and Tiger Woods charged into contention for a record-setting 83 career US PGA title.

On Friday, Woods four-putted No. 1 on the South Course for a double bogey and had to fight his way to a 1-under 71.

Instead, he was celebrating his fifth career PGA Tour victory.

"Life is very fragile as we all know", Woods said. He said having won here in 2017 will mean nothing to him Sunday.

Woods said Bryant was an inspiration as a player.

Fog delayed the start by two hours but Woods shone brightly once he began. I wasn't going to tell him because I figured he's going find out soon enough, and it was too much of distraction.

As much as McIlroy wants to reclaim the world number one spot for the first time since 2015, the four-time major victor from Northern Ireland wants to capture a title missing from his collection. After a bogey on the 15th to fall four shots behind, Rahm stuffed his next two shots for birdies.

Leishman's Odyssey Versa #6 with a black/white/black stripe pattern on the head was without question the difference-making club Sunday, starting right off with a 41-footer for birdie at the first. A mishit off the tee left him a long birdie attempt from more than 60 feet, and he three-putted to fall back to 3 under on the day and 7 under on the tournament. Still, it kept him from dropping a shot and falling further behind.

"I was coordinating with a friend to actually meet sometime soon and pick his brain", said the somber Spaniard.

"After I made that putt on 17, I never looked at the scoreboard", Rahm said.

LPGA - Madelene Sagstrom shot a 5-under-par 67 to take a two-stroke lead into the final round of the Gainbridge LPGA at Boca Rio in Boca Raton, Fla. Rahm hit the green on the par-5 18th, and it went to the top ridge - the pin was on the lower level in a bowl.

Sagstrom had a 15-under 201 total.

The golf great explained that the pair would occasionally hang out when Kobe was still playing in the National Basketball Association and Woods had a home in California.

"I was telling myself this morning that, 'I didn't play ideal yesterday, but I still shot 62".

"I was driving it really well early in the week and then I think I might have only hit two or three fairways today".

"No. 5 sounds pretty good and to do it on Australia Day is just awesome", said Leishman, who claimed his 13th victory as a professional.

Danielle Kang (65) and Sei Young Kim (67) were at 12 under.

Here you can find everything you need to stay up to date with the world's foremost golf tour. "Just devastating really", said Leishman.

Three bogeys in the first four holes left the Northern Irishman reeling, though like Rahm he recovered somewhat to shoot 69 and finish equal third with American Brandt Snedeker, three strokes behind Leishman.
