New Orleans, LA (Sports Network) - Billy Horschel birdied the 72nd hole Sunday
to fend off D.A. Points and win the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.
Horschel closed with an 8-under 64, including six birdies in a row from the
seventh, to finish at 20-under-par 268. The victory was Horschel's first on
the PGA Tour.
Points closed with a 65 to grab second place at minus-19.
The outcome was a turnaround from the Houston Open, where Points converted a
13-foot par putt to beat Horschel by a single stroke.
Kyle Stanley posted a 5-under 67 to end alone in third at 17-under-par 271.
Third-round leader Lucas Glover managed a 1-under 71 and ended in a share of
fourth place at 15-under 273. He was joined there by Bobby Gates, who carded a
66 on Sunday.
The final round was completed despite a pair of weather delays that combined
to last over four hours.
