NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) This holiday event in the Bahamas is taking on a little more meaning for Bryson DeChambeau seeking a small measure of revenge and for Collin Morikawa pursuing a more noble goal of reaching No. 1 in the world.

The group one shot behind included Koepka, of course, who made a 12-foot par putt on the final hole for a second straight 67.

Virus nixes Joburg Open after 36 holes

JOHANNESBURG (AP) South African golfer Thriston Lawrence won the Joburg Open on Saturday after the third round was abandoned because of bad weather, meaning the result was called after 36 holes of the inaugural event on the DP World Tour.
