J.B. Holmes secured his fifth PGA Tour title after carding a 1-under final round of 70 to finish one shot clear of the 54-hole leader, Justin Thomas.

Holmes was able to come out in top after coping well with the testing and windy conditions on Sunday at Riviera, highlighted by his stellar iron play and putting.

The Kentuckian finished the week ranked in a tie for second in Greens in Regulation using his Srixon Z 785 irons and Cleveland RTX 4 wedges.

The 36-year-old’s driving also played a key role in securing the win. Although Holmes is a Srixon/Cleveland staffer he currently games Callaway’s latest Epic Flash Sub Zero driver. He recorded the ninth longest drive of the week, bombing it 334 yards during the final round using the Flash.

It was, however, Holmes’ work on the greens that was main reason why he was able to bag win number five on the PGA Tour.
