After Match Play, can anyone beat Dustin Johnson?

The shot came up well short and left a treacherous putt and Rahm was clearly frustrated as he looked towards the source of the sound. Johnson then tapped in his short putt for the victory.

With a par on No. 18, Johnson earned a 1-up victory.

Johnson's 1-up victory completed a week in which he never trailed in any of his seven matches, leading in 105 of the 112 holes he played.

"Today was a really tough day and this whole weekend was but I am proud of the way I stayed in there even though Jon made some birdies on the back nine but I am delighted with the way I played". At the 16th Rahm brilliantly holed from 31ft, meaning Johnson was suddenly only one hole ahead with two to play. Yet Rahm displayed the tenacity which served him so well all week by holing from off the green at the 7th before winning both the 9th and 10th to keep Johnson just about within view. "Honestly, he doesn't really make mistakes", Rahm said after his second setback to Johnson in as many WGC starts.

The first was as the Oakland Raiders, the second was in Los Angeles, although the team still practiced in Northern California. Roster turnover is high these days, meaning most now employed by the Raiders won't play for the home team in Las Vegas.

He's now won six times since capturing the U.S. Open last June and can add one more to that total - he's in the field this week for the Shell Houston Open.

Johnson, the reigning US Open champion, won the WGC HSBC Champions in 2013, the WGC Cadillac Championship in 2015, the WGC Bridgestone Invitational in 2016 and the WGC Mexico Championship earlier this month. He was on the bag for Abbostsford, B.C.'s Nick Taylor when he won the Sanderson Farms Championship in 2014.

Asked to size up his feat, Johnson said, "Pretty good".

He's not for a lot of words.

Republicans have a majority in Congress, but the speaker and President Trump couldn't get together enough votes to pass it. During that edition of Justice with Judge Jeanine , Pirro said: "Paul Ryan needs to step down as Speaker of the House".

His nonchalant demeanor is so noticeable that on Saturday he was asked if he even has a pulse. Some will say it was fun to watch, but as Johnson hit a wedge into the green and Rahm hit a lob wedge, it was hard not to reflect on the recent survey conducted by the R&A and USGA, which somehow reached the verdict that, no, the ball is not travelling too far. But the very best get it done and there can be no doubt that the 32-year-old is the very best at the moment.

"It feels so bad because of all the work I did on the back nine to come from five down to nearly have a chance". There's still a lot of room for improvement in my game.

On the 356-yard par four eighteenth hole, Rahm blasted a drive that went a whopping 382 yards, rolling straight through the middle of the green and coming to rest a few yards over it. Johnson played a safe iron off the tee, but wedged to the front fringe of the green, leaving himself about about 25 feet to the hole for his birdie try. Then came birdies on the par-4 15th and the par-5 16th, the second of which came after Rahm blasted his tee shot into the trees to the right of the fairway.

Those answers could be construed as elusive rhetoric from any other player, but in Johnson's case, it's just the plain truth.

Kayleagh also revealed that Coleman later sent a text message to Shane to thank him for his words of comfort. I was just talking to Seamus, teaching him how to breathe through it.' He remembered it all.

Rahm's comeback, however, fell short. After Rahm hit a driver, Johnson chose to layup and while his second shot didn't end up on the green, Rahm's drive was over the green leaving him a hard chip that came up short. But his chip down the slope checked up and stayed short of the ridge, leaving him a downhill putt that broke so sharply that he aimed almost at a 90-degree angle away from the hole.
