LOS ANGELES (AP) - Bubba Watson says he was contemplating retirement. The two-time Masters champion had gone two years without winning. One week at Riviera was a reminder that he's still very much in the game. He ended his longest drought of the decade by closing with a 2-under 69 for a two-shot victory in the Genesis Open.

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A year of upheaval at the U.S. Interior Department has seen dozens of staff members reassigned, rules governing industry shelved and complaints its leaders are ignoring public input. The evolving status quo at the agency has met with praise from energy and mining companies and congressional Republicans. Others say the changes have curbed outside input and elevated corporate desires above the government's duty to safeguard public lands and resources.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Just five states have laws that allow relatives or police to seek a judge's order stripping guns from people who are showing violent tendencies or signs of mental distress. There is no such law in Florida, where a young man displayed several warning signs before killing 17 people at his former high school. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio said Sunday that state lawmakers should "absolutely" consider enacting the measure, which more states are considering.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The coldest temperatures of the winter are likely from a low-pressure system predicted to bring snow to California mountains. The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory beginning Sunday evening for gusty winds and icy road conditions in mountain areas across the state. Forecasters say snow could fall at elevations as low as 1,500 feet (450 meters) in greater Los Angeles and some areas could see three inches. Some six inches could fall to the north in the Sierra Nevada.
