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.

Bigelow’s 81-yarder was a career-long. It was Cal’s longest play from scrimmage this season, surpassing Daniel Lasco’s 77-yarder the week before vs. Southern Utah. It is the longest rush since Jahvid Best’s 93-yard touchdown run at UCLA in 2009. He ended the day with a personal-best 160 rushing yards and 230 all-purpose yards. His previous career best in all-purpose yards was 137 against Presbyterian last year.

The 5’10, 190-pounder was named to the CFPA Special Teams Trophy watch list prior to this season.

Corey Pavin made a 12-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole at Broken Sound in Boca Raton, Florida, to hold off Peter Senior and take home the Allianz Championship for his first win on the Champions Tour.

Both Pavin and Senior shot a final-round total of 71 to finish tied at 11-under 205.

The 52-year-old Pavin, known as “Bulldog”, is a UCLA grad and has won 21 tournaments in four different golf tours, 15 of them on the PGA Tour.
