2019 Genesis Open Wrap-Up

After the first round was lost to weather delays, all four rounds were completed in the final three days, with the leaders playing 33 holes on Sunday. After the final putt dropped, J.B. Holmes outlasted an incredibly stacked leaderboard to earn a one-stroke victory over Justin Thomas. Having began the day 4 shots behind Thomas, J.B. made up ground in a hurry with birdies on 1 and 3 while Justin Thomas was 2-over through his first 5 holes. With a bogey on 7, Holmes would make the turn in 1-under 34 and stay within two shots of the lead. Thomas and Holmes would trade birdies and bogeys on 10 and 11 respectively, but Justin would soon find himself trailing by two when he double-bogeyed 13 and bogeyed 14. With a two-shot lead, J.B. Holmes made a string of pars, including a clutch par save on the 16th, where Justin Thomas would make birdie to close the lead to one. Two more pars from both players, and a 1-under 70 was good enough for Holmes’ 5th career PGA Tour victory and his first since the 2015 Shell Houston Open.

Next week, the Tour’s top players join some of the world’s best golfers in Mexico City for the WGC – Mexico Championship.
