Billy Horschel Breaks Two-and-a-Half Year Winless Streak at Byron Nelson
The AT&T Byron Nelson wrapped up on Sunday with a dramatic playoff-hole ending between Billy Horschel and Jason Day.
Horschel, coming off four straight missed cuts and winless in over two years, battled the world’s number 4, Jason Day, on the back nine at TPC Four Seasons Las Colinas in Irving, Texas. The two came up even after a series of long putts and chip-ins down the stretch lead them two matching pars on 17 and 18 and into extra holes.
In the first playoff hole, Day was left with a 4 footer for par to tie the hole but missed it to give Horschel his fourth win on tour.
“I knew the stuff I was doing at home was the right stuff,” Horschel said. “I knew the stuff I was doing in early weeks of tournaments was the right stuff. I just had to keep believing in it and keep believing that, you know, in tournament golf that I’ve done this stuff I needed to do that week to play well. Sometimes I just didn’t have that belief I needed.”
