LIV Golf caught a break last weekend when the PGA Tour event at Pebble Beach was rained out on Sunday and any golf fans looking for action were able to turn to watch the Season 3 opener for the league at Mayakoba in Mexico. Joaquin Niemann defeated Sergio Garcia on the fourth hole of a playoff in near total darkness.

Well, the league caught another break this time too, both because the Las Vegas event finished on Saturday at as not to compete with the Super Bowl or the PGA Tour's WM Phoenix Open. But also because of a stellar leaderboard until the last putt at Las Vegas Country Club.

Ultimately, it was Dustin Johnson who made birdie on the 17th hole to take a one-shot lead into the last hole and win his third LIV Golf title. After a 62 during Friday's second round, Johnson only mustered a one-under 69 on Saturday, but his 12-under-par total was good enough to top Talor Gooch and Peter Uihlein by a shot. Jon Rahm (one-over 71) and Bryson DeChambeau (four-over 74) were both in contention at the start of the day but did not play well. They finished eighth and tied for ninth place respectively.

"It's a great win," Johnson said. "Today was tough ... with the conditions. There were a lot of really good players around the lead."

Johnson took home $4 million for his victory, his third in three years, following the 2022 event in Boston and the Tulsa event last year. Smash GC (Gooch, Brooks Koepka, Graeme McDowell, Jason Kokrak) won the team event in Las Vegas by seven shots over Johnson's 4Aces. They will split $3 million.

Uihlein bogeyed the 16th hole Saturday, but rebounded with a birdie on the 17th then made a key par save on the 18th hole to get in the clubhouse at 11 under par. He went to the range to stay warm while Gooch and Johnson played one more hole. Gooch birdied three of his last four holes to tie Uihlein, but Johnson dashed their hopes when he hit an impressive approach into the last hole and only need to two-putt from inside 20 feet for par and the win.

"It's getting off to a good start so far," Johnson said about his year. He tied for fifth place last week in Mayakoba.

The league now will take three weeks off before heading to Saudi Arabia for the Jeddah event March 1-3. They will be in Hong Kong the following week.
