All he cared about Sunday was winning at Riviera, one of his favorite courses where he has had chances in four of the last five years. There was no doubt this time. Johnson had a one-shot lead when he arrived Sunday at Riviera, which lost 10 hours the previous three days to fog and torrential rain.

Johnson went 49 straight holes without a bogey, a streak that ended on No. 9 in the final round, and he was sloppy down the stretch when it no longer mattered. It capped off a strong stretch that elevated Johnson to the top.
