Jason Day wins the Wells Fargo Championship

Jason Day wins the Wells Fargo Championship

"This is probably one of the best wins I've ever had because of how hard everything was today", Day said.

But Day stumbled with bogeys at the par-3 13th and par-4 14th, missing the green off the 13th tee and finding water off the 14th, falling back into a share of the lead after Wise birdied the 14th to reach 10-under. Wise did exactly that with a three-under 68 in the final round.

Woods has missed the tournament the previous two years but returns this time around, while Si Woo Kim heads to the event as defending champion after his history-making win in 2017. The youngster was tied with Jason Day as headed to the infamous "Green Mile".


He said more will be needed for him to contend at the Players Championship next week. So you put those two things together, and he's not lacking in wedge play, either.

Rory McIlroy enjoyed a stronger weekend - finishing at three under, despite three bogies down the back nine - but he is also looking to improve at Sawgrass. Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas were one shot behind him.


THE COLONY, Texas (AP) - Park Sung Hyun sprinted to the finish in the weather-abbreviated LPGA Texas Classic on Sunday, chipping in for birdie from behind the green on the 18th hole to close out a 5-under 66 in the second and final round, good for a one-shot victory.

If Day was expecting a challenge from some of the other high-profile players in the field, it never materialized. He failed to make a birdie in the final round of a tournament for the first time since 2014.

Day was left needing to sink a two-metre putt in two shots or less on the last to seal victory - with the Aussie rolling it in on the first to clinch his second title this season.


The event was reduced from 72 holes to 36 after Thursday's round was canceled and Friday's play was delayed by 8½ hours because of rain.
