2014 Official World Golf Ranking – Feb. 17 – Bubba’s back


SHARE THIS STORY

It took way longer than Bubba Watson probably had hoped, but the 2012 Masters winner is now a five-time PGA Tour champion. With a weekend pair of 7-under 64s at Riviera, Watson won the Northern Trust Open by a pair over Dustin Johnson. It's his first win since that playoff triumph over Louis Oosthuizen two years ago.

Meanwhile, in South Africa, Thomas Aiken took down Oliver Fisher on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff to win the the Africa Open in his home country. Aiken hops inside the top 100 in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Here's a look at the full top 50 for this week.
