Avondale, La. • Billy Horschel shot an 8-under 64 in the final round of the Zurich Classic on Sunday, maintaining his composure through a pair of weather delays for his first career PGA Tour victory.
The 26-year-old former Florida Gator began the day two shots behind third-round leader Lucas Glover and surged into the lead with six straight birdies after the first weather delay. He finished at 20 under, narrowly holding off Shell Houston Open winner D.A. Points, who shot a final-round 65 to finish one shot behind.
The second delay happened before Horschel could take his second shot on the 18th hole, giving him 50 minutes to reflect on what was at stake $1.19 million and a two-year exemption.
