"The last year-and-a-half, nearly two years give or take, has been a struggle, because I want to be at the top", said Watson, who was ranked 117th when he arrived at Riviera but will move into the top 50 with his latest victory. Watson won the Genesis Open for the third time with a two-shot victory, his final-round 2-under 69 capping a 12-under week. Watson scored just two points in the basketball game, but returned to Riviera and carded a 6-under 65 to grab the 54-hole lead. "Somehow I played those holes under par".
But Riviera, where he's now won three times, is akin to competitive Ritalin for Watson. The following week, he finished one shot behind at the World Golf Championships event at Doral. He is coming off his worst season on the PGA Tour, finishing 75th in the FedExCup standings and recording just six top-25s finishes.

McDowell opened his five-under par 66 with three straight birdies at the 10th, 11th and 12th. He had a driving accuracy of 57.1 percent, 42 pars, eight bogeys, 20 birdies and a 63.9 percent in greens in regulation. Cantlay missed, Watson made, keeping the deficit at one shot. The two-time Masterschampion parred each of the next three holes, and birdied the sixth, seventh and ninth holes to complete the front nine at 5- under-par 30, matching his career best on the front nine at Riviera. Kevin Na in the group ahead and Cantlay alongside him made bogey on both of them.
Phil Mickelson was within one shot of the lead when he hit a 4-iron from a deep bunker on the 15th hole to just right of the green. On the 17th hole, Wood drove his tee shot into the hazard left and could do no more than chip his ball out for a bogey.
"His feel for that kind of stuff, you can't go to the range and practice that". He followed that with back-to-back bogeys but grabbed four more birdies to surge up the leaderboard.
Watson sank a 10-foot, 8-inch putt on the par-4 second hole to save par.
