Day soars to victory
Australia's Jason Day birdied 2 of the last 3 holes on Sunday to capture the Wells Fargo Championship, collecting his 12th career US PGA title and second of the year.
Day, the 2015 PGA Championship winner, held off Americans Aaron Wise and Nick Watney with a final-round 2-under-par 69 to finish on 12-under 272 for a 2-shot victory at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, North Carolina.
On the same course where he contended before faltering late in last year’s PGA Championship, the 30-year-old stumbled with back-to-back bogeys and fell level with Wise with 4 holes remaining.
But he sank a 10-foot birdie putt at the 16th and bounced his tee shot into the flagstick at the par-3 17th before a tap-in birdie. He sank a 7-footer for par at 18 to win by 2.
