Jason Day closed with a flawless 62, tying his career-low final-round score, to reach 23-under and win his 13th PGA Tour title.

This victory came in the Australian's 106th start since his last win at the 2018 Wells Fargo Championship (5 years, 8 days ago).

"I don't know how to explain it. I came into the week after missing last week's cut, and I was kind of fed up with having to go over like a lot of technical thoughts with my swing. So I just decided I'm just going to go out and just try and play some golf.

"The first three days were great, and then I was really calm. I was saying earlier, I was really calm last night. I woke up, had a great sleep, and just things felt calm.

"For some reason, I just thought that I was going to win the tournament. It's easy to say that now because I won it, but that's just -- for some reason I just had this sort of calmness about it. I had a really good warmup this morning and felt good.

"It's weird because when you're playing golf and you're in the hunt or around the lead, sometimes there's moments in your round that you think, oh, it's kind of not my time. I really never had that thought at all this week, even in the last round. I was just kind of plodding along and got a couple early, which was nice, and just felt like you had to press, and funny enough, you have to shoot 9-under to try and win a tournament, which is kind of crazy because I do remember back in the day Charley Hoffman shot 9-under to beat me. It's nice to be able to finally do that and win one."

Day also won the AT&T Byron Nelson in 2010 and becomes the seventh player in tournament history with multiple titles joining Tom Watson (4), Sam Snead (3), Sergio Garcia (2), K.H. Lee (2), Bruce Lietzke (2) and Jack Nicklaus (2).

South Korea's Si Woo Kim carded a final-round 63 to finish T2 at 22-under alongside rookie Austin Eckroat (63).

"Everything was solid," said Eckroat. "I really felt like I played well enough to win. It's just hard to beat a guy that goes out and shoots 9-under. A lot of positives to build off of.

"All of us got off to a decent start, and then I looked on hole 9 and saw I don't know how many guys, but 10, 15 guys had a chance to win realistically, and it was crazy. I mean, you're just trying to get up there, and it was fun to get some separation at the end and see if you could get a chance to win, like I did, and it was a really fun battle on the back nine.

"This was a success for sure. I played four great rounds, got off to a terrible start on Thursday and just battled back. Yeah, it was a successful week for sure. Hopefully next time I get it done."

Taiwan's C.T. Pan carded a career-low 62 to finish solo-fourth, his best result since the 2021 Honda Classic (T3).

World No. 2 and Dallas resident Scottie Scheffler closed with a 64 for a share of fifth place at 20-under, his 12th consecutive result of T12 or better.

England's Tyrrell Hatton (65) and China's Zecheng Dou (64) also finished T5.
