Pacific Palisades (US): Dustin Johnson is the World No. 1 for the first time after winning the Genesis Open. The US Open champion took the lead in the second round and never relinquished it, ending the weekend 17 under par and winning by five shots at Riviera Country Club.

Johnson told Sky Sports: "Today was a great day. I played really good all day long and I'm very happy. It's obviously a big bonus to finally get to that number one spot. I'm very proud of myself and my whole team who have supported me. It's going to push me to work even harder."
