American Steve Stricker claimed a two-shot win at the Northern Trust Open over Englishman Luke Donald at the Riviera Country Club. Stricker began the final round with a six stroke lead but was immediately put under pressure by Luke Donald who opened with three birdies in the first five holes. Steve Stricker responded with three birdies of his own around the turn and finished with a round of 70 to Luke Donald's 66. The win took Steve Stricker to World Number Nº 2, the position he held for three weeks in September last year. Darren Fichardt launched a 239-yard three-iron over some intervening trees and the water surrounding the 18th green to set up a birdie on the final hole for a one-stroke victory in the R3-million Dimension Data Pro-Am. He carded a four-under 68 on the Montagu course at Fancourt to draw away from Branden Grace who shared the lead with him after the third round. Louis Oosthuizen finished second having posted a six-under 66 to set the target for Fichardt. Fichardt jumped 124 spots to Nº 200.
