Day misses out in sudden-death playoff

"I haven't played here in five years", said Horschel. "It's a long time ago since I have been in this situation".

It was a disappointing end for the Queenslander after he lit up the TPC Four Seasons Resort course during round three when he scored five birdies in a row on his way to a round of 7-under 63, the best score of the tournament.

Hahn said he won't fret while sleeping on the lead, even with 12 players within five strokes. "You can't just lag it down there 2 feet short and keep going back and forth". "We all want to win".

Horschel shot a final-round 1-under 69 in tough conditions to finish the tournament at 12 under.

The win couldn't have come at a better time for Horschel, who came under some fire last week at the Players Championship when he appeared to toss his putter at his caddie. "I didn't expect him to miss it".

All kings of people go to golf tournaments. "This course really fits my game from tee to green". "But I came here and, now, I am. This means a lot - I'm sad that we're leaving".

Third-round leader James Hahn finished a stroke back after shooting 71.

But on a week when his normally-sharp iron play was not as tight as he would have liked (43rd in approach shots), Horschel put on a short game show.

"This is what I know of myself".

Hahn had a one-stroke lead over Horschel after both players birdied the par-4 11th. Had the eagle fallen, Hahn would have joined the Day-Horschel playoff.

Day, meanwhile, parred Nos.

The Queenslander looked to be heading to a victory when his chip shot over a bunker on the 15th hole toom him to a one-shot lead. Everything is coming along nicely. Chun used birdies on the third, par-4 fifth and par-5 seventh to get within two shots, but Thompson answered with a birdie at the par-4 ninth and then made three birdies in a four-hole span on the back nine. They both made pars at the 17th and 18th so that a playoff was needed. It was not a classic Horschel performance, but he left with what he came for: a trophy and a bid into the 2017 U.S. Open and 2018 Masters.

Hahn nearly holed out from the fairway on his way to a closing birdie to join midway leader Jason Kokrak on 10 under in joint-third, with Byeong Hun An part of a four-way tie for fifth.

Matt Kuchar, Jhonattan Vegas, Jason Kokrak and Cameron Tringale are two strokes back on 66. Taylor was 9 under in his final two rounds combined.

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

Defending champion Sergio Garcia had birdies on six of his last eight holes Saturday to get within four strokes of the lead.

NOTES: Shawn Stefani was disqualified after signing an incorrect scorecard following the third round. It will move to Trinity Forest Golf Club near Dallas. He remains winless on TOUR in 146 career events. May. The event celebrates Nelson's life and legacy.
