Tiger Woods 'unbelievably sad' after learning of friend Kobe Bryant's death

"I wish it could be like that every week". Once he had the lead, no one caught him. Then he sank a 10-foot birdie putt at No. 13 and added four birdies on the last five holes, but a bogey at No. 15 proved costly in the end.

Leishman produced eight birdies at Torrey Pines, including one at the last, to claim his fifth PGA Tour victory. He made his only bogey on 17 but came back with a final-hole birdie that proved to be the difference.

Leishman started the day four shots behind Spain's Rahm, but his storming run on Torrey Pines' South Course gave him a 15-under total of 273.

Rahm needed an eagle at 18 to tie Leishman, and he'd pulled off that feat before in the final round of the Spaniard's Farmers victory in 2017. "I'll have to go out there and post a number and hopefully it will be good enough".

Three bogeys in the first four holes left the Northern Irishman reeling, though like Rahm he recovered somewhat to shoot 69 and finish equal third with American Brandt Snedeker, three strokes behind Leishman.

"I was in this situation a few times on Symetra, and it's just to keep the same game plan", said Sagstrom, a three-time victor on the Symetra Tour in 2016.

"My first few years on the TOUR, you're just hoping to keep your card, just have a job".

Leishman has suffered through his own hard life circumstances. Recently, he has been a high-profile advocate for relief fundraising in support of the wildfires that have ravaged Australia.

Woods, at 44 three years older than Bryant, was still processing the news of his friend's death. "It's frightful to see someone who's so successful die in a tragedy like that".

Asked what Bryant's greatest quality was, Woods said, without hesitation: The fire.

That said, Canadian public health officials say they don't believe there needs to be a ban on flights from China at this point. An unnamed student, a 34-year-old woman, now in isolation, returned to the West African country from Beijing on Saturday.

LaCava, knowing Woods had a close relationship with the former Lakers star, made the immediate decision not to tell him. Earlier in the week, Woods said he was not thinking about No. 83. Woods had to settle for a 70 and tied for ninth, six shots behind. Rahm closed with a 70.

Starting today's round, Jon Rahm was at the top of the leaderboard, at 12-under par, with Ryan Palmer one back at 11-under. Leishman knew it was crucial to secure the birdie putt on the 18th in order to avoid a playoff with Rahm. He hadn't looked at a scoreboard and didn't think there was much commotion on the green when Leishman finished. I just found a feel on the putting green earlier in the week, which actually I said to (his caddie), when I had the putter in my hand, feels like it did in Malaysia a couple years ago when I won there, which it's nice when it happens like that occasionally.

Bryant meant so much to Tony Finau that the golfer's manager drove from Los Angeles to San Diego to tell him after the round.

Woods said they spent time together when he still had a home in Newport Beach, but they rarely connected after Woods moved to Florida. "I just can't imagine what their entire family's going through right now".
