HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. - Carl Pettersson had another fast start and finished with a 2-under-par 69 for a 5-shot victory over Zach Johnson on Sunday in the RBC Heritage. Luke Donald, who needed to finish among the top eight at Harbour Town Golf Links to keep the top spot, instead was 16 shots off the lead at even-par 71. When the new world rankings are released Monday, he will surrender No. 1 to Rory McIlroy, who took the week off after the Masters and went to Copenhagen to visit girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki, according to the tennis star's tweets.

AKRON, Ohio - Jim Furyk spent more time looking at the forecast than the leader board Saturday in the Bridgestone Invitational. He's not sure which one looks more favorable. Furyk missed a couple of birdie chances early in the third round, and then was more than happy to settle for pars on a Firestone course that was firm, fast, bouncy, and increasingly difficult. He made 16 pars, along with one birdie on the front nine and one bogey on the back nine, for an even-par 70 that felt like a hard day of work.

HONOLULU - Russell Henley became the first PGA Tour rookie in 10 years to win his debut with a record-setting performance Sunday in the Sony Open. Tied for the lead with fellow rookie Scott Langley to start the final round, Henley seized control from the start with a birdie on the first hole. And then he really poured it on at the end of the round. Henley birdied his last five holes to close with a 7-under-par 63 for a 3-shot win over Tim Clark. Henley finished at 24-under 256. It was the second-lowest score for a 72-hole tournament in PGA Tour history, 1 shot behind Tommy Armour III at the Texas Open in 2003.

TIGER WOODS is out of the top 50 in the world rankings for the first time in nearly 15 years. Woods, who hasn't won in nearly 2 years, was assured of dropping from the top 50 when Louis Oosthuizen finished in a three-way tie for fifth in the Dunhill Links Championship. That ends a streak of 778 consecutive weeks inside the top 50, dating to when Woods was No. 61 on Oct. 13, 1996. Woods, who has not played since missing the cut at the PGA Championship, returns to competition this week at the Frys.com Open at CordeValle in Northern California.

Each of the last 11 years has produced at least one first-time major winner. Of the last 40 majors, 23 have gone to first-time major winners (six at the British Open). Of those, only three have been able to add another major: Phil Mickelson, Angel Cabrera and Padraig Harrington. Last year, Louis Oosthuizen became the fourth South African to win this major, joining Bobby Locke, Gary Player and Ernie Els. Oosthuizen took a four-stroke lead into the final round, the largest 54-hole advantage since Tiger Woods was ahead by six going into the last day in 2000 at St. Andrews.

HUMBLE, Texas - Brian Davis and Louis Oosthuizen shared the lead at 11 under after two days of play in the rain-delayed Houston Open. The second round was suspended because of darkness at 7:36 p.m. Friday with about 70 players still on the course. Jeff Maggert, a Houston resident, was at 10 under, but he had eight holes left to play in his second round. The defending champion Phil Mickelson (70), J.B. Holmes (67), Tommy Gainey (67), and Greg Owen (69) finished their second rounds and were 2 shots behind the leaders at 9 under.

NORTON, Mass. - Louis Oosthuizen ran off a flawless string of seven straight birdies Sunday to race by Rory McIlroy and take a 3-shot lead into the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship. McIlroy played well. So did Tiger Woods. It just didn't look like it compared with Oosthuizen, the South African with one of the sweetest swings in golf who had an 8-under 63. His birdie streak included four putts of at least 20 feet, and he shot 29 on the front nine of the TPC Boston. McIlroy, trying to match Woods with his third PGA Tour win this year, did well just to stay in range.

NORTON, Mass. - Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods played together in the opening two rounds of the season in Abu Dhabi. They were together again for the opening two rounds at Bethpage Black for the start of the FedEx Cup playoffs. The idea is to get them together with a trophy on the line. Both took a step in that direction Saturday in the Deutsche Bank Championship. McIlroy went from one extreme to another on par 5s just 30 minutes apart - a 4-iron into 10 feet for eagle on No. 18, a 5-wood in the water for bogey on No. 2 - but steadied himself for another 6-under 65. Woods, playing in the afternoon, had three birdies on the opening six holes until he could no longer get a putt to drop.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - When Bubba Watson won the Masters 2 years ago, the only time he held the lead by himself was when he parred the second playoff hole to beat 2010 British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen. Through the first three rounds and a large chunk of the fourth, he mostly lurked. Which ain't a bad way to get it done, especially at a major. This time, he's taking a different approach in his pursuit of another green jacket. Yesterday, he shot a 4-under-par 68 in the second round - highlighted by five straight birdies on the back nine - for a 36-hole 137 and a three-shot edge over Australian veteran John Senden heading into the weekend at the year's first major.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Bill Haas has played in the Masters four previous times. He'd never broken 70, never finished better than 20th and never been higher than 11th after a round. His best finish in 12 other major starts as a professional was 12th at the 2011 PGA. But he has won five times since 2010, including the 2011 Tour Championship, with the most recent coming last July. Yesterday at Augusta National, the 31-year-old South Carolinian opened with a 4-under-par 68 to grab a one-shot lead over defending champion Adam Scott, 2012 winner Bubba Watson and Louis Oosthuizen, the guy Watson beat in a playoff after 18 holes.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - So, what were you doing when you were 14, other than trying to make it through puberty in one piece? It was, as you'd expect, quite an eventful week for China's Tianlang Guan, even if you took out the historic one-stroke penalty for slow play that he received late in his second round on Friday. Hey, he stuck around for all 4 days, which is more than could be said for, among others, reigning U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson, 2010 U.S. Open champ Graeme McDowell and 2010 British Open winner Louis Oosthuizen, who lost in a playoff at last April's Masters.

SIMPLY PUT, the Masters is the best major. Or at least the one that the public looks forward to the most. Just because. It's the first of the season. And the only one that goes back to the same place every year. So it's like saying hello to an old friend again. It signals the real start of the golf season, and spring. The U.S. Open might be for the championship of our country. And the British might represent that for the rest of the planet. But Augusta is green jackets, the back nine on Sunday, Magnolia Lane, the ghosts of Bobby Jones and about a zillion other things.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - You can't hit this shot. You don't know anyone who can hit this shot. You probably don't know anyone who would even try to hit this shot. Bubba Watson snapped a 52-degree wedge out of a dirty lie on needles, deep in a pine and magnolia forest, around bushes and trees and a TV tower, 150 yards forward and 50 yards right, up a hill, to within 10 feet of the pin. That par-4 on No. 10 at Augusta National in a sudden-death playoff won last year's Masters.

Winless since 2010, Graeme McDowell opened with three straight birdies Friday and finished strong for a 6-under 66 to take a 3-shot lead in the World Challenge in Thousand Oaks, Calif. Bo Van Pelt had to save bogey on the last hole for a 68, leaving him tied for second with Keegan Bradley and Jim Furyk , each who had a 69. Tournament host and defending champion Tiger Woods was tied for the lead at one point but had to settle for a 69, 4 shots behind. McDowell's last win was in this tournament in 2010.

Guan Tianlang of China won the Asia-Pacific Championship in Bangkok on Sunday, making the 14-year-old the youngest player to qualify for the Masters. Guan closed with a 1-under 71 at Amata Spring Country Club, needing a par on the 18th hole to beat Pan Cheng-tsung of Taiwan. Guan, an eighth grader who weighs 125 pounds, couldn't reach the par 4 in 2 shots. He chipped to five feet and made the putt. Guan will be the youngest player at Augusta National in April. He easily surpasses the mark set by Italy's Matteo Manassero , who was about to turn 17 when he played in 2010.
