What Billy Horschel said after winning the Byron Nelson

What Billy Horschel said after winning the Byron Nelson

Day, the No. 4 player in the world golf rankings, completed all 72 holes of regulation without a three-putt but posted one on his first playoff hole to open the door to a Nelson triumph by Billy Horschel.

But Horschel won his first tournament since 2014 after Day, 29, missed a four-foot putt for par on the 18th.

"I said the same thing to myself, 'you know what, if you're going to go, you got to go for it and try to win".

BASKETBALL: Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas will miss the rest of the playoffs because of a hip injury. "To be able to play the way I did today, I played some good solid golf", Day said.

Maybe it was I knew I played really well the 2nd Round of Players even though I missed the cut, I felt like my game turned the corner and my caddy Josh Cassel walked down 17 last week and just said, he saw something in my game. You always want to win with a birdie on the last hole.

The lead changed hands again when Day recovered from finding the trees off the 15th tee to hole out from the bunker for an unlikely birdie, only for the Australian to need three putts from the fringe at the par-five next. Two pars on the 17th and 18th and an escape from a narrow Day birdie miss on the finale hole, and Horschel was primed to go a few more rounds with the 10-time champ.

From 122 yards out, Hahn's approach landed past the hole, spun back and lipped out.

Both players missed par putts on the last hole to force the play-off.

Masters champion Sergio Garcia was four over on the final day to finish eight shots off the pace.

Kokrak will be kicking himself after he blew a five-shot overnight lead. The two-time major champion had six birdies and two bogeys.

Dustin Johnson, the No. 1 player in the world, had a closing 69 to tie for 13th at 6 under.

Fred Funk shot a 2-under 70 to hold onto the third-round lead at the Regions Tradition. Top-ranked Lydia Ko was among those two strokes back at 67. The third-ranked Jutanugarn, defending the first of her five tour victories previous year, had a 70 to also reach 4 under.

McCarron shot 69 and Parel 70.

Day's putt, unfortunately, never had much of a chance. But his advantage was down to one by time he finished his next hole, the par-3 5th, with a triple bogey.

Spieth first played a PGA Tour event at age 16 on a sponsor's exemption in the 2010 tournament, and tied for 16th - still his best Nelson finish.

His three-day total of 19-under 195 is one stroke better than Andrew Yun, Xinjun Zhang and Tyler Duncan.
