The 31-year-old South Korean player earned $270,000 and two Kia cars, a Sorento for the hole-in-one and a Stinger for the victory.

"So when I look back at my career, it's the stuff outside of golf". It was his second World Golf Championship and his 11th victory on the Professional Golfers Association (PGA) Tour.

A third Masters triumph next week would cement Watson's place on the U.S. team.

Even when he reached the final round, he never imagined he would be playing for the title.

Watson had just birdied to go 2 up on Thomas, who had an opportunity to claim the world's No. 1 ranking had he defeated Watson. It was just pitiful, " Kisner said. And then what's that - it starts with an "L" - Louvre, something like that.

Watson delayed a planned vacation after reaching Sunday's semifinals, and he will continue to climb up the U.S. Ryder Cup team points after contemplating retirement while battling an undisclosed illness past year.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, he ruled out a second appearance in the tournament this year. While the wedges remained in his bag at Match Play, Mickelson's had "2.0" stamped after the PM Grind on the head.

"It was little downwind and I hit the same club as yesterday", Ji said. "I am driving the ball really nice".

"Rory did not play his best golf today but I played extremely well", two-times PGA Tour victor Harman told Golf Channel.

A number of players will enter Augusta National brimming with confidence on the strength of past successes and recent form. In his past eight starts there, his only finishes inside the top 35 have been his two wins, in 2012 and '14. But Watson locked things up one hole later.

"Me donating money to the Children's Hospital, that's the biggest trophy I've ever been a part of", Watson said.

Huawei launches new P20 smartphone series
The Huawei P20 Pro has now been announced , officially taking the spot of top flagship from the Chinese smartphone manufacturer. The phone has a 5.8-inch Full HD+ (2240×1080) IPS display with an 18.7:9 aspect ratio, a PenTile RGBW matrix, and 429 PPI.

"No, I'm not a favorite". I don't want anybody to talk to me that week. "I tried to stick with my game plan but everything went left or right". In doing so, he prevented Thomas from becoming the No. 1 golfer in the world. Thomas lost consecutive matches Sunday after entering the day undefeated for the week and seeking to take over the No. 1 spot in the world rankings with a victory. It's just a learning experience, I need to handle it better.

"I haven't had such a hard time not thinking about something so much".

"(I was thinking) hopefully the putter will be rolling well the last couple of holes. Noren won the first but Thomas bounced back at the third. He was told just before he teed off that there was more work to do, but apparently he couldn't refocus. Played three, lost three.

The Match Play was another setback for Spieth, who got blown away in his much-hyped, third-round match against Patrick Reed. "I holed nice putts". And then you've got good Bubba. "Sometimes when you fall from the top, and he had some health issues and stuff, when you come back you're like, OK, this isn't the most important thing in my life".

Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo dropped out Friday, finishing last in the 132-man field in his PGA Tour debut. He shot 77 and 82 playing as an amateur on a sponsor exemption.

Yes, tournament officials accomplished what they wanted - bringing attention to an event that otherwise would have gone unnoticed - but it's still awesome that a proud professional athlete would subject himself to such embarrassment.

"Going to an office every day didn't feel like it would be fun", he said.

"Somehow I keep getting trophies and I don't know how".

Move Over, Bernie?: Steve Stricker. A year ago was tough but a couple of wins turns it all around. Stricker's three results this season: T2-1-1, and he's now first on tour in scoring average.

He wasn't ideal at Austin Country Club, admitting that throughout the course of the week he only lost focus about four or five times, most notably on the par-4 13 hole in his semifinal match against Thomas.

Sunday Struggles: Corey Conners. That might explain why he booked a vacation starting last Sunday. He shot a 77 (Tampa, T-16) and a 76 (Dominican Republic, T-13).
