Billy Horschel wins Zurich Classic

Associated Press  |  Last updated April 27, 2013
Billy Horschel shot an 8-under 64 Sunday in the final round of the Zurich Classic, maintaining his composure through two weather delays for his first-career PGA Tour victory. The American began the day two shots behind third-round leader Lucas Glover and surged into the lead with six straight birdies after the first delay. He finished at 20 under, narrowly holding off Shell Houston Open winner D.A. Points, who shot a 65, finishing 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. Chinese 14-year-old Guan Tianlang finished 71st after making his second cut in two PGA events, the first coming famously at the Masters.
