The Australian had some issues earlier on in the round, but managed to do what was needed in the end.

The bunker shot on the last couldn’t have gone any better. Day hit the ball to 4-foot, giving him an easy putt for par and a 2-under 70 finish for the day, enough to outlast Kevin Chappell for his first win of 2016.

There were four players in close contention during the final two hours at Bay Hill. It was a matter of who would make the most mistakes, and Day’s came early in the round. He lost a two-stroke lead in the front nine before recovering with a shot from the rough and over a bunker to one foot on the ninth hole for birdie.
