World number one Dustin Johnson rebounded from a shock early exit at the British Open to capture the Canadian Open title on Sunday for his third victory of 2018.

Top-ranked Johnson pulled away for his third victory of the season and 19th on the PGA Tour.

The 37-year-old Australian started moving day at Toronto's famed Glen Abbey course just four shots off the pace, only to tumble down the leaderboard with a three-over-par 75 leaving him at seven under and 10 shots back of the 54-hole lead.

"It definitely means a lot; I have a lot of ties to Canada with Paulina and her dad and thanks to Wayne I get a lot of fans out here", Johnson said.

Johnson has an endorsement deal with title sponsor RBC and fiancee Paulina is hockey great Wayne Gretzky's daughter, adding to the American star's popularity in Canada.

"It takes a lot of work and a lot of support from my family to help me get to where I am".

This report has done little to give closure to families who lost loved ones in the disaster. "The black box has not been found". He said he had spoken to each of the Australian families and acknowledged the "sense of loss" they lived with every day.

A cracking final round of the Canadian Open was in store with four players starting on 17-under: Johnson and compatriot Kevin Tway, along with South Korean pair Byeong Hun An and Whee Kim who all cleared out by four shots from the rest of the field. "It's a golf course I really like", Johnson said. "Somebody is going to shoot low and I just hope it's me". I didn't putt good. I felt like I hit the ball plenty good enough to be under par after two days, and I was five-over or something.

He realized he was in contention at the RBC Canadian Open on the par-5 16th tee, after a rain delay that lasted almost two hours at Glen Abbey. He shot a 9-under-par 63 on Friday - tied for round-of-the-week - but was 10 shots worse on Saturday.

American Keegan Bradley finished in fourth place at 19 under after firing an 8-under 64, the low round of the day, while Abraham Ancer of Mexico came in fifth at 18 under. I've always said I feel like my game is right there. But he plummeted 42 spots down the leaderboard Sunday, and finished with a double bogey on No. 18, eliciting a groan from the crowd when he hit the ball into the water. "I started rolling the putter a lot better this week", he said. Hughes is in a group of eight tied for 13th at 11 under, six shots behind the four leaders.

The New Zealand golfer Danny Lee has produced his best finish of the PGA Tour season, finishing in a tie for sixth at the Canadian Open in Ontario.

PGA Tour Champions: Miguel Angel Jimenez became the first Spaniard to win the Senior British Open, edging defending champion Bernhard Langer by one shot at St. Andrews, Scotland. "But I was, like, 'This is very chip-in-able and if I do it with the jersey on, it's way cooler'".

Meanwhile, US Open champion Ariya Jutanugarn posted a bogey-free 65 to get within three of the lead.
