Graham DeLaet went into the final round of the Northern Trust Open two shots off the lead and came out of it two shots off the winning score as the lead moved backward as did DeLaet, who opened with a birdie on the par five first hole.
However, he double bogeyed the par four second and followed up with a bogey that required a mighty swipe to get out of the Kikuyu grass and back on to the fairway on the third hole at Riviera.
DeLaet would par the next six holes before another bogey at 10 put him at three over on the day, but with the leaderboard coming back, he birdied 11 and 13, where he sunk a 35-footer to put him within two of the lead at the time.
A bogey on 15 left him at four under which is where he would stay, two shots behind the eventual playoff trio of James Hahn, Paul Casey and Dustin Johnson. Hahn won in the playoff.
While DeLaet tied for eighth after his final round, two-over 73, Adam Hadwin finished with a final round 69 to move up the leaderboard into a tie for 22nd at even par.
