Day outlasts Dubuisson to win WGC-Accenture Match Play

(Reuters) — Jason Day fended off a comeback by Victor Dubuisson to clinch the biggest title of his career with a one-up victory after 23 holes in the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship final at the Golf Club at Dove Mountain in Marana, Ariz., Sunday.

Day had a three-up lead after 12 holes, but Dubuisson, of France, recorded birdies at the 13th and 17th, followed by an amazing par from a greenside bunker at the 18th to force extra holes.

Dubuisson then conjured up two miraculous up-and-downs from desert scrub at the 19th and 20th holes to keep the match alive before Day, of Australia, sealed the win by sinking a four-footer for birdie at the 23rd, the driveable par-four 15th.

It was Day’s second triumph on the PGA Tour and his first win in a World Golf Championships event, which bring together the game’s leading players.
