DUFNER COMES FROM BEHIND TO WIN THE MEMORIAL
After leading the Jack Nicklaus-hosted event in Columbus, Ohio through 36 holes, Jason Dufner lost the third round lead with a disappointing five-over-par 77.
Many were ready to put a fork in the 40-year-old American who was facing a four-shot deficit when he started the final round on Sunday....
But Dufner never lost sight of the big picture and it paid off when he rallied from behind and holed a 30-foot par putt on the 18th to close out a victory in the Memorial, his fifth career win on the PGA Tour.
Not since Nick Faldo in the 1989 Masters had anyone shot a 77 in the third round and come back to win.

LORENA OCHOA ANNOUNCES HER COMEBACK
Lorena Ochoa said on Sunday that she will play in the Lorena Ochoa Match Play scheduled to be held in Mexico City from May 4-7. It will only be one-tournament comeback but this will be her first time competing in a LPGA Tour competition in five years.
It has been so long that she laughed and said, "I couldn't find my golf shoes this morning."...
She was No. 1 in the Rolex Ranking when she retired in 2010 and had won 27 times on the LPGA, including two major championships.
Now 35 and a mother of three, Ochoa played only in one event since she announced her retirement and that was in 2012, in the Lorena Ochoa Invitational, where she tied for 18th.
Lorena Ochoa, who will be inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame later this year, is considered Mexico's greatest female golfer of all time.

RICKIE FOWLER CLAIMS HIS FIRST VICTORY IN 13 MONTHS
Rickie Fowler had not won on the PGA Tour since the Deutsche Bank Championship in September 2015, and it seemed like he was going to lose another final-round lead at the $6.4 million 2017 Honda Classic in Florida on Sunday. Fowler, ranked world number 18, had never won from the front on the PGA Tour.
Ahead by four strokes at the start of the final round, Fowler recorded two bogeys and a double bogey on the front nine at PGA ...National’s Champion Course. It was a worryingly wobbly start for the 28-year-old American, but with a strong finish on the back nine, he closed with a four-shot victory. Instead, those chasing him had the biggest problems with the closing stretch at PGA National.
“I would have liked to have a little bit cleaner card today and played a little bit better, but this is a good one.” Fowler said, adding, "My putter saved me. It was tough out there today and I fought as hard as I could."
This was Fowler’s fourth tour victory
“This is something we needed going into Augusta,” Fowler said. “There’s less pressure, less stress. I like the spot where we’re at right now.”

DUSTIN JOHNSON IS NOW THE NEW NO.1
Dustin Johnson doesn't spend a lot of time crunching numbers, especially the computations for the world ranking. "I don't really understand it, but I can read 1-2-3. I guess that's all that matters" said the 32 year-old American.
Johnson leapfrogged Jason Day as world No 1 with his five-shot victory in the Genesis Open last night. He admitted the top spot wasn’t something he dreamed of as a young golfer, but now that he’s there, “It’s going ...to just push me to keep working harder and stay there” he said.
Johnson's win at Riviera was his 13th career PGA Tour title. He has won at least one PGA Tour event every season since he turned pro and the Genesis Open victory marks the 10th consecutive season that he has won; the longest active streak on the Tour.
“He deserves it” Jason Day said of Johnson’s rise.
