AMERICA’S Billy Horschel sunk a 27 foot pressure putt to take the 2013 Zurich Classic of New Orleans and secure his maiden US PGA Tour victory.
The 26 year old had to maintaining his composure through two weather delays to shoot an 8-under 64 and finish on 20-under, beating fellow countryman D.A. Points (65) by a stroke. Kyle Stanley (67) was third on 17-under.
Overnight leader Lucas Glover, looking for his first win in two years, shot a respectable 1-under 71 but it was only good enough to finish T4 on 15 under.
Horschel has been in great form recently, with three straight top tens and a tour leading 23 straight cuts.
He began the day two strokes behind Glover but a string of six straight birdies from 7 through to 12 thrust him into the lead.
The best placed Aussie golfer was Matt Jones (68) tied for 32nd on 9-under with Rod Pampling (72) T42 and Stuart Appleby (70) T47.
