The only thing predictable about Phil Mickelson is his unpredictability. That was clear again at the Desert Classic, a tournament he should have won Sunday.

Adam Long had quite a Sunday on the greens at the Stadium Course at PGA West. In winning the Desert Classic for his first victory on the PGA Tour, Long made seven birdies in a final-round 65, including birdie putts of 16, 15, 20 and, after a magnificent iron shot on the 72nd hole, 14 feet. Long uses a Scotty Cameron by Titleist X5R mallet putter—a design with “wings” to help boost moment of inertia to provide better performance on mis-hits.

Rickie Fowler has won four times on the PGA Tour and amassed more than $34 million in career earnings. Now in his 10th full season on the PGA Tour, Fowler is making a monumental shift in his equipment, changing to TaylorMade's TP5x ball (the number 15, in homage to his motocross days) in a multiyear agreement that also will have him wearing the company's Tour Preferred Glove. Fowler spoke with Golf Digest's equipment editor E. Michael Johnson on the process of making the switch, the new ball and how playing with Dustin Johnson in the Ryder Cup played a role in the decision.

Five-time major champion Phil Mickelson fired six birdies in a six-under par 66 to maintain his two-shot lead in the US PGA Tour Desert Classic. The 48-year-old American heads into Sunday's final round chasing a 44th US PGA Tour title and his third in this event in the California desert east of Los Angeles. His 22-under par total of 194 put him two strokes clear of Canadian Adam Hadwin, who fired a bogey-free seven-under par 65 for 196. Mickelson -- who launched his week with a sparkling 60 on the La Quinta course, one of three in use this week -- kept his foot on the accelerator on the tougher Stadium course on Saturday, where a chip-in at the sixth hole launched a string of three straight birdies.

Welcome to the Dew Sweeper, your one-stop shop to catch up on the weekend action from the golf world. ABU DHABI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES - JANUARY 19: Shane Lowry of Ireland celebrates with caddie Brian "Bo" Martin on the 18th green after winning during Day Four of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship at Abu Dhabi Golf Club on January 19, 2019 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

It wasn't golf as much as a test of survival. A field in which 80 percent of the players are at scratch or a plus-handicap didn't break 80 as a group on Sunday in the second round of the First Coast Amateur. Sustained winds of more than 25 mph, gusts of more than 40 mph and temperatures that stayed in the low-50s chilled hands, frayed nerves and made pars a precious commodity. When it was mercifully over Stephen Shephard, a senior at NCAA Division III Huntingdon College (Ala.) and Logan Sowell, a junior at the College of Charleston, were tied for the lead at 1-over-par 145. Shephard had the day's low round with a 73 and Sowell was one of six players who tied for the next lowest score with a 75

Alvaro Ortiz of Mexico made birdie on the par-5 18th on Saturday for a 2-under 70, giving him a one-shot lead and a third opportunity to capture the Latin American Amateur Championship. Ortiz lost in a three-man playoff in 2017 and was runner-up last year to Joaquin Niemann. A victory would earn the 23-year-old Mexican a spot in the Masters, along with an exemption into the final stage of qualifying for the U.S. Open and British Open.

SINGAPORE (AP) — Jazz Janewattananond shot a final-round 65 on Sunday to win the Singapore Open and qualify for this year's British Open. The Thai player carded seven birdies over the Serapong Course at Sentosa Golf Club to finish at 18-under 266, two strokes ahead of Yoshinori Fujimoto (68) and Paul Casey (65), who had already secured his place at Royal Portrush. Fujimoto also qualified and will make his second appearance in golf's original championship following his debut at Royal Lytham & St Annes in 2012. Doyeob Mun (72) and Prom Meesawat (68) were tied for fifth and also clinched qualifying places for the July 14-21 tournament. Defending champion Sergio Garcia shot a 68 to finish tied for
