No-name James Hahn comes out of nowhere to win Northern Trust Open

chicagotribune.com — It seemed appropriate on Oscar night that Northern Trust Open coverage would spill into overtime with a montage to "Swinging in the Rain." After three days of calm and sunshine, players on Sunday were forced to tiptoe through intermittent showers at Riviera Country Club.

Northern Trust Open: Sergio Garcia, Retief Goosen share lead

latimes.com — Sergio Garcia is making a run at Retief Goosen in the final round of the Northern Trust Open. Garcia birdied three of his first five holes and caught Goosen at eight-under par. Garcia, after a par at the first, carded five straight scores of three through the sixth hole before making par-four at No.

Retief Goosen stays on top at Riviera

baltimoresun.com — Retief Goosen can't be sure what to make of "holding" the 36-hole lead at the Northern Trust Open. Maybe "grasping" is a better word.

The golf gods came out in third-round force to turn Riviera Country Club into an obstacle course. Justin Thomas, a 21-year-old upstart seemingly poised to win his first tournament, started his day by hooking his opening tee shot out of bounds.
