LOS ANGELES — Dustin Johnson went to No. 1 in the world with a world-class performance at Riviera. Johnson turned a marathon finish into a Sunday stroll in the Genesis Open. 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 had such command of his game that his longest par putt in the third round was from 4 feet, and he closed with three straight birdies to make the final round in the afternoon more of a coronation. 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.
Ha Na Jang of South Korea is back at the No. 5 spot in the Women's World Golf Rankings released Tuesday after her 12th professional victory at last week's Women's Australian Open. Jang, 24, finished with a three-stroke lead over Denmark's Nanna Koerstz Madsen at 10-under 282 in Seaton, South Australia. She was previously ranked No. 5 after winning the 2016 HSBC Women's Champions. This marks Jang's third week ranked in the top five of her career. Since the start of 2016, Jang has four wins -- including two in her last six events on the LPGA Tour. She has the Tour's highest winning percentage (18.2 percent) during that span. Only Thailand's Ariya Jutanugarn (five) has more wins since the start
