Bubba Watson carded a final round 68 to secure a one-shot victory at the Northern Trust Open in California.
Watson held the overnight lead at Riviera Country Club but he did not have it all his own way as a number of players threatened to snatch the title on a thrilling final day.
A birdie at the opening hole was just the start the two-time Masters winner was looking for but he had to wait until the ninth to pick up another shot, reaching the turn in 34 after a bogey at the seventh.
Having birdied the 11th, Watson then dropped another shot at the 13th, before back-to-back birdies at 16 and 17 put him into the lead.
Playing partner Jason Kokrak had the opportunity to join Watson at 15-under-par but his birdie putt at the 18th missed the target.
"You never know when your last win is going to be, so for me to come back and pull one out and win in a tough way means a lot and is very special to me and my family," Watson said.
Earlier, Adam Scott had threatened to Watson's lead as he eagled the first before picking up shots at the third, fourth and sixth. However, a double-bogey at the par-four eighth was to prove costly as the Australian as he went on to complete a four-under-par 67 to finish just one stroke behind Watson.
Rory McIlroy, meanwhile, had a day to forget as he carded a four-over-par 75, which left him nine shots off the pace.
It had started so brightly for the world number three as he moved to the top of the leaderboard with an eagle at the first hole, but he bogeyed three of his next six holes before dropping four more shots on the back nine.
