Victory is Johnson's 20th on the PGA Tour and will see him move back to world No 2, while McIlroy claimed outright second on 16 under after firing six birdies in a seven-hole stretch on his way to a closing 67.

Johnson still has not made a bogey this week through 54 holes, but a double bogey on the 10th hole showed that he is indeed human and slowed his march to this title, if only for one hole. Johnson can join them if he can finish off things on Sunday. "The putts I thought I hit well didn't go in and the putts I hit bad were just atrocious", Woods said.
It will likely get underplayed, but for D.J.to join Tiger Woods, Tom Watson, Phil Mickelson and Johnny Miller with 20 wins on this PGA Tour before age 35 is as impossible as his swing.
"I knew I was playing well, so I didn't really let it bother me", Johnson said. Tommy Fleetwood of England started the third round three shots off the pace and Garcia was four back.
Paul Casey (65), Ian Poulter (68) and Kiradech Aphibarnrat (68) tied for third, though they were 10 shots behind. "I'm right there, right where I need to be".
Meghan Markle Heads Back To London After Lavish Baby Shower
Meghan's baby shower cost a staggering $430,000, including the $75,000-a-night venue and the $125K private jet she took each way. Abigail Spencer , a co-star on Meghan's former TV show " Suits ", was among old friends in town to fete the upcoming birth.
On the par-5 sixth, McIlroy went left and his ball settled behind a tree. He's among the four players tied for ninth at 207, 10 shots off Johnson's lead.
He followed that with a three-putt bogey on the 16th, and a birdie on the final hole gave him a 70.
Woods lost more than two strokes putting to the rest of the field on Sunday alone and appeared to have a hard time reading the shorter putts.
"I definitely was thinking about that", he said of the exemption.
Woods skipped just one post-round media session last year but and now has two in a row at the WGC-Mexico Championship, the post-tournament recap refusal something that hasn't occurred in years. He has a 54-hole total of 212, 15 shots behind Johnson. We forget because it was 12 months ago, but having Big Cat seriously contend at WGC events and talking about his strokes gained putting instead of his strokes gained back surgeries is a great place for golf to be.
