Horschel defeats Day on first hole of playoff

Horschel defeats Day on first hole of playoff”

Billy Horschel was the eventual victor in a playoff against Jason Day after the world number four missed a very small putt and picked a awful time to record his first three-putt of the tournament.

"I only had one top 10 up until this point (this season)", Day said Sunday after his round. "Someone's looking out for me today".

Horschel joined Hahn in bogeying the next but bounced back by holing a 60-footer at the 14th to move into a three-way tie for the lead, where Hahn posted a third blemish in as many holes. His shot spun back from just past the hole and rolled over the edge of the hole, narrowly missing an eagle that would have launched him into the playoff with Jason Day and eventual victor Billy Horschel. Horschel came out on top following a sudden death playoff where he used the PXG Bat Attack putter to roll in the winning putt.

The weather was an issue early in the week and with rain threatening on Saturday, groups of three were sent off the first and 10th tee to make sure the rounds were played.

The man is a whirlwind, and he infused unusually benign day - the final one for this tournament at TPC Four Seasons in Irving - with a little juice.

"It's sad that (the tournament) is leaving because I was never a fan of this course", Horschel said of the Nelson venue. "And I don't want to leave".

And Wenger said: "Seventy-five points will be a decent total". "We had a hard week playing Sunday, Wednesday and Saturday". The English side who made it furthest in the continental competition - the next round - were Leicester, who are 11th.

It was not exactly a heavyweight duel down the stretch, but Horschel got a victory he badly needed and set himself up for the next few years on the PGA Tour. "It's a little disappointing, but it's not the first tournament I'm going to lose". He made the 4-foot birdie putt to finish alone in third, ahead of Jason Kokrak.

"Definitely. You know what, just shows that things are coming together", he said. Live streaming: Thursday-Sunday, PGA Tour Live; Saturday-Sunday, CBS Sports.comLast week: Si Woo Kim won The Players Championship. "I'd rather be stalking people than any other way".

Reigning US Masters champion and defending champion Sergio Garcia of Spain fired a 64 to finish on 202 and share sixth place with former Byron Nelson champion Jason Dufner (65) and Bud Cauley (68).

"Jason didn't have his bets game out there, and I know I didn't, but we both battled".

For Horschel, the win snapped a 30-month winless streak. Dustin Johnson, the world's No. 1 player, had his second consecutive 67 and was among six players tied for third. "There's a lot on the line but I feel like when I'm on the golf course there's a different animal that comes out and I get very competitive".
