Justin Thomas held the lead for most of the final round at the 2019 Genesis Open on Sunday. But he faded on the back nine as J.B. Holmes took home a one-shot victory over Thomas for the PGA Tour victory.

“It was really tough on the back side,” Holmes said after finishing at 14-under par for his fifth win. The victory qualifies Holmes for a spot in the WGC-Mexico Championship this upcoming week.

Play resumed in the morning at 6:45 a.m. local time. Tiger Woods, who surged late Saturday finished his the tournament at 6-under, after moving to 10-under mid-way through the final round.
