Day wins World Match Play


Comments Print article

Australian Jason Day withstood three amazing comebacks from his opponent to win the World Golf Championships Match Play Championship at Dove Mountain, Arizona.

Day has opened a 3-up advantage through nine holes and was two-up with two to play when Frenchman Victor Dubuisson launched a fightback to square the match and force a sudden-death playoff.

Twice more Dubuisson would be in trouble; twice more he would produce spectacular shots to keep the match going.

Finally on the 23rd hole, Day secured the greatest win of his career.

As the winner, he receives $US1.53 million ($A1.70 million) and a three-year exemption on the US PGA Tour.

The victory also catapults him to world No.4.

Day moved into the final by dispatching American Rickie Fowler 3 and 2 in the semi-finals earlier in the day.
