Both Day and Horschel had the chance to seal a win in regulation play with scores tied at 12-under par approaching the 18.

Horschel's two-putt birdie on the par-five 16th moved him back into a tie for the lead with Day while Hahn's par on the hole all but ended his chances.

Hahn is at 12-under-par 198 while former FedExCup champion Billy Horschel is one stroke back after a 66 that featured birdies on the final three holes. But Jason Day then missed for par from just four feet and the title was Horschel's. "Finally I think things are starting to click back for me".

"I was a little shaky out there with the putter", Horschel told Sky Sports. "There are some big names that are behind me so I wouldn't be surprised if someone jumps out going, four or five under in the first seven holes or so and to have to play catch-up".

Horschel, who had missed the cut in his only previous Nelson appearances before this season (2011, 2012), became the 35th, and final, Nelson champion crowned in Irving before the event shifts next season to Trinity Forest Golf Club in Dallas. The fourth-ranked player in the world was tied for third with Kokrak, who shot a 72 after setting a Nelson 36-hole record with a five-stroke lead.

"I haven't played here in five years", said Horschel. "Overall, it was a pretty good week, but obviously I'm disappointed that I didn't get the win".

A year after falling $3,243 short of earning a PGA Tour card through the Web.com Tour's regular-season money list, Jaeger earned $126,000 to jump from 103rd to sixth with $138,234. Sleeping on the lead, you can overthink it and I just like to go home with my wife, our two-year-old daughter, watch some cartoons.

"Then I birdied six and I got nervous again". "I wish I would have made a couple more putts today ..."

He missed badly, giving Horschel his first win since 2014. "I'd rather be stalking people than any other way".

"Jason didn't have his bets game out there, and I know I didn't, but we both battled". Throughout his relatively brief career, he won 54 times, including the 1939 U.S. Open, the 1937 and 1942 Masters and the 1940 and 1945 PGA Championships.

Here are the rest of our grades for the AT&T Byron Nelson. This is Hahn's fourth Nelson, and he has shot 64 or 65 in half of his 14 rounds there.

Dustin Johnson (T13): The No. 1 player in the world was never really in the mix this week, and he still finished in the top 15. Just grateful that I was playing a game I love, probably sometimes take it for granted but I put so much pressure on myself of last four weeks.
