Day breaks PGA Tour win drought

"That pin being in the bowl, I thought I had a better chance of holing out with a wedge than I did trying to chip one in".

The 35-year-old needed to hole out his fourth shot from the relief area but could only get to 12 feet and when he missed the tricky putt, Day had two putts for victory - which he took at the first attempt. Day ranked second in driving distance for the week at 320 yards.

Both Day and Noren ended a windy Sunday playing in the dark with birdies on the fifth hole of the playoff.

Subscribe to Times of San Diego's free daily email newsletter! . Day made birdie on the first hole played Monday to win his first title since the 2016 PLAYERS Championship. He has won five times on the European Tour since the summer of 2016.

Jason Day says he felt his world No.1 form returning during his drought-breaking US PGA Tour victory at Torrey Pines.


"We just need a few cars on the fairways to show us where we're going". In some sports (i.e. the volatile ones such as golf and baseball), entry percentage matters more than in other, more consistent ones (e.g. basketball).

Woods was never in site of the 10-under par total of 278 that sent Australia's Day, Sweden's Noren and American Ryan Palmer into sudden death.

After Palmer departed, Day looked destined to lose the playoff after scuffing wide to the rough on the second playoff hole.

Woods' Sunday score matched his highest of his four trips around Torrey Pines. More recently, fans were allowed on the grounds to watch Woods win in a non-playoff Monday finish at the 2013 Farmers after the tournament was delayed because of fog.
