Pettersson finished 14-under 270 for his fifth PGA Tour title (matching Jesper Parnevik's record for a Swedish-born player) and first since the 2010 Canadian Open. Pettersson birdied Nos. 2-6 Saturday and finished the round with a one-shot lead. On Sunday he rolled in a 24-footer for birdie at No. 1 and a 16-footer for birdie at No. 4, then two-putted from 40 feet to birdie No. 5. When Johnson bogeyed No. 10, Pettersson led by five and cruised from there. "I didn't want to put too much pressure on myself (to start well)," said Pettersson, a U.S. citizen who finished second two weeks ago in Houston. "But getting off to a birdie on No. 1 was great." Colt Knost, the second-round leader seeking his first tour title and starting Sunday one back of Pettersson, faltered early and shot 74 to finish third. He missed an 8-footer for par at No. 1. He birdied No. 2. But at No. 3, his drive went out of bounds, leading to triple-bogey 7. "I hit it good this weekend," he said. "But the one swing (on No. 3) got me in trouble … and that was kind of it." McIlroy back at No. 1: Luke Donald needed to finish in the top eight at the Heritage to stay No. 1 in the world. Instead, he tied for 37th, putting the idle Rory McIlroy on top. Donald was No. 1 for 40 weeks, lost it to McIlroy on March 4 and reclaimed it by winning the Transitions at Innis­brook on March 18. PGA Europe: Louis Oosthuizen won the Malaysian Open in Kuala Lumpur, a week after losing a playoff in the Masters. The South African shot 3-under 69 in the rain-delayed third round, then closed with 68 for a three-stroke victory at 17-under 201.
