Jason Day won his first PGA Tour event in five years on Sunday, shooting a 9-under 62 to beat Austin Eckroat and Si Woo Kim by one stroke at the AT&T Byron Nelson.
Day, winless in 105 starts since the 2018 Wells Fargo, claimed his first outright lead with a chip-in for eagle at the par-4 12th, breaking a tie at 20 under with hometown favorite Scottie Scheffler.
After being converted from a par-5 the first two years the Nelson was contested at TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney, some 30 miles north of Dallas, it was the second-toughest hole of the tournament.
Day finished 23 under par on Mother's Day, a little more than a year after losing his mother to cancer, and ended his victory drought the week before the PGA Championship.
The 2015 PGA was the sole major among the 35-year-old Australian's 13 victories. Day's first PGA Tour victory came in 2010 at the Nelson.
C.T. Pan ended at 21-under 263 after scoring two eagles on the back nine in a career-low 62, including driving the green on the par-4 14th and
sinking a 24-foot putt. His eagle on the par-5 18th brought him within one stroke of Day.
Scheffler finished at 20 under par with a final-round 65 following a par on 18, where his second shot had hit the lip of a fairway bunker and stuck in it on his way to a bogey the day before.
