Playing in the penultimate group, Horschel’s birdie on the 18th gap gave him the marginal lead over Canter who was in the closing pairing.
And a day after what would’ve been Palmer’s 92nd birthday, it was a particular second for the Florida native.
Horschel was one in all the American golfers who simply missed out on qualifying for Steve Stricker’s Ryder Cup workforce, but it surely did not appear to hassle him.
He got here out the blocks firing in Sunday’s closing spherical, posting three birdies and no bogeys on the opening 9 holes.
And coming down the closing straight, with stress mounting at the prime of the chief board, Horschel prevented any bogeys in addition to carding 4 extra birdies to edge him into the lead.
In profitable the European Tour’s flagship event, Horschel turns into the first American to win a Rolex Series event.
