Jason Day celebrates his win Sunday at Torrey Pines
San Diego, California - Jason Day got off to a hot start in 2014, winning the WGC Accenture
Match Play, but then a thumb injury lingered throughout the year and derailed his year.
Healthy in 2015, Day is once again looking to climb the world rankings. On Sunday it was Day
who (after shooting a final rd 70) prevailed in a four man playoff to win the Farmers Insurance
Open and capture his third PGA Tour title on Sunday over J.B Holmes, Harris English and Defending
Champion Scott Stallings (who were all tied at 9 under par after 72 holes of regulation).
After Day and Holmes made birdies on the first playoff hole (the 18th hole), Stallings and
English were eliminated. The par 3 sixteenth (the second playoff hole) was where it all ended
when J.B Holmes couldn't manage to make par. Day after hitting his tee shot to 15 ft, had a
routine two putt par to close the deal.
Day reflected afterwards: "I visualized myself winning and holding the trophy before this week.
I was in palm Springs thinking about it, just trying to visualize over and over in my head.
Obviously I need to go out and play good golf, but that's kind of what I did at the Match Play
and that's what I did here this week. So obviously that tells me that I need to start doing that
a lot more and really wanting to get to that No.1 spot."
Paul Goydos celebrates his career Champions Tour title Sunday at Broken Sound
Boca Raton, Florida - On a day at Broken Sound where nine players had a share of the lead at
one point, it was not one of the big named legends that outlasted the field . . . it was longtime
journeyman Paul Goydos. Tied for the lead on the last at -11, Goydos' approach on the par 5
finished just over the back of the green. Goydos hit a superb bump and run chip down the slope
to within a foot and tapped in for birdie and the victory at the Allianz Championship.
Goydos' scrappy 3 under par 69 was good enough to reach -12, and get the job done by one
shot over Gene Sauers. Afterward Goydos acknowledged just that, "It was a shootout without
great scores, the course played tough today." The win was the second Champions Tour title for
Sauers birdied the final two holes for a final round 67 (-11), it was his forth Champions Tour
runner-up finish. Fred Funk, Michael Allen and John Huston all finished tied for third at -10.
