Horschel Wins Byron Nelson on First Playoff Hole

Horschel Wins Byron Nelson on First Playoff Hole

For Horschel it was the fourth PGA title win of his career and he was delighted to overcome several bouts of nerves to take the victory. "I told Jason it's not the way I wanted to win". "Someone's looking out for me today".

Earlier, former world No.1 Day shot a two-under par 68 final round to tie with Horschel (69) at 12-under despite some patchy golf.

That miss by Day nearly wasn't even needed for Horschel, whose 18-foot birdie chance was rolling straight toward the center of the cup before stopping just short.

Having overshot the hole, the Australian pulled his four-foot return putt left while world No.76 Horschel had a tap-in for par and claimed his fourth United States tour title after having missed the cut at his previous three events.

"When I hit it I knew it was on a ideal line and I thought I got it to the hole".

Australia's Day missed a short putt on the 18th hole that would have extended the playoff to hand Horschel the victory. "I was not a fan of this golf course the first two times I came here and then I came. and I was like, 'Wow, why did I not like this course?' This course really fits my game to tee and really just embrace the golf course and played really well".

Billy Horschel didn't have much reason for optimism when he began play this week at the AT&T Byron Nelson, but he certainly left the TPC Four Seasons Resort Las Colinas on Sunday walking tall and with some pep in his step.

Glen Day (Little Rock) finished tied for 10th and won $55,200. "I won, and I don't want to leave". I putted beautifully all week. Day shot 68 for the round and Horschel 69.

The Australian was edged in a play-off by Billy Horschel on Sunday, the result marking just his second top-10 finish of the year.

Despite the loss, it appears Day has finally regained his confidence and form as major championship season approaches.

But only one walked away with the trophy.

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson tied for 13th at six-under after a final-round 69.

In all, 27 players earned a spot in the U.S. Open via the top 60 criteria. That's the kind of season he's having so far in 2017. The reason for the bogeys is that he was leaving himself in bad spots. Can you imagine if this would have gone to get him in a playoff, and he would have gone on to eventually win?

"It's going in the right direction", Hahn said.
