Long Beach native, UCLA product John Merrick wins Northern Trust Open in Los Angeles

John Merrick

30-year-old John Merrick growing up in the Los Angeles area always wanted to play in the Northern Trust Open at Riviera Country Club.

He realized a dream last week.

On Sunday, the native of Long Beach, California made a couple of clutch shots that led to two pars in a sudden-death playoff and an eventual win in the Northern Trust Open when Charlie Beljan missed a 5-foot par putt on the second extra hole.

After a 169 starts on tour, the win could not have come at a better place for Merrick. He grew up in the LA suburb of Long Beach and went to college on the westside of town at UCLA.

Merrick closed the tournament at 2-under-par 69, to become only the ninth player to win this tournament at Riviera in Los Angeles, earning his first PGA Tour victory.

Merrick finished at 11-under-par 273.

Chevrolet’s return to the IndyCar circuit has been very successful.

But the manufacturer has decided to change the engines for all 11 of its racing teams before the series can open the weekend at Long Beach, California.

A defect was discovered during testing on Monday.

All of the Chevrolet drivers who use the engine will drop 10 spots on the starting grid before Sunday’s race under a series rule that disallows engine changes before each one has completed 1,850 miles.

Mike Conway made a late pass by Ryan Briscoe to win the Grand Prix of Long Beach on Sunday, earning his first career IndyCar win in just his third race since a bad crash last year at the Indianapolis 500.

Conway has come all the way back from the crash where he suffered multiple leg fractures and a compression fracture in his back in the Indy 500 wreck, knocking him out for the rest of the Indy Racing League season.

The road course at Long Beach is a tricky, 11-turn, 1,968-mile circuit which winds through the streets of downtown Long Beach, California.

Conway started the race third and hung around the leaders until his chance came to take the race.

Conway took advantage of a final caution flag, and drove past  Dario Franchitti and Briscoe with 14 laps left took the race home to the finish.

Briscoe finished second and Franchitti third.
