Day misses out in sudden-death playoff

22 May 2017, 03:39 | Amanda Barker

"It's really surreal. This is probably the most emotional win I've had", said Horschel, who had missed the cut in his last four starts at PGA Tour events. "To be able to play the way I did today, I played some good solid golf", Day said.

Horschel's two-putt birdie on the par-5 16th moved him back into a tie for the lead with Day while Hahn's par on the hole all but ended his chances.

Hahn is at 12-under-par 198 while former FedExCup champion Billy Horschel is one stroke back after a 66 that featured birdies on the final three holes.

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 USA tour title after having missed the cut at his previous three events.

"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".

"I know that feeling", Horschel said about Day's unexpected playoff miss.

The tournament was the 35th and last at TPC Four Seasons in Irving, Texas.

Day had a chance to finish at 13 under but his 18-foot birdie putt on the 72 hole burned the edge of the cup and he cleaned up for par.

Tokyo approves bill to allow emperor to abdicate
Though legally nonbinding, it is expected to emphasise the need to ensure stable imperial succession, news reports said Friday. Reports of the 83-year-old emperor's desire to retire surprised Japan when they emerged in July 2016.

"Come in here with missing four straight cuts, nothing of any type of momentum, only thing I can hang my hat on was my practice sessions for the last several months have been well, practicing sessions leading to the tournaments have been well", he said. "Overall, it was a pretty good week, but obviously I'm disappointed that I didn't get the win".

"This is what I know of myself". But he acknowledged that collecting a trophy because of Day's playoff blunder, rather than his own birdie, "was not the way I wanted to win".

"Tell me what my tee time and I'll just show up". He made the 4-foot birdie putt to finish alone in third, one stroke ahead of Jason Kokrak.

16-18. Tringale was fifth at 9 under after a 67, with defending Nelson champion and Masters victor Garcia tied for sixth at 8 under after a 64 that also included three straight birdies at Nos.

"Do I have as much talent as Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlory? No".

Hahn also shot 64 in the opening round and used just 29 putts, the same number he had on Saturday.

The victory was the first for Horschel since he went on a torrid run in the 2014 FedEx Cup Playoffs and took home the Tour Championship.

Kokrak, the 128th-ranked player in the world, matched the Nelson's 36-hole record at 12 under after his career-best scoring round, and no one has ever had a bigger lead there after two rounds.
