Jason Day of Australia came through a four-man playoff to win the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in San Diego, California.

Day fired a final round of 70 to finish on a four-round total of nine-under-par. That finishing number was matched by overnight leaders Harris English and J.B. Holmes, also by defending champion Scott Stallings, who closed with a 69.

On the first extra hole Day and Holmes made birdies and Stallings and English were eliminated. On the second hole of the playoff – the par-3 16th, Day played a fine shot into within 15-feet of the flag. Holmes fired his tee-shot through the green and could only make bogey from there. Day took the win, the third PGA Tour title of his career. The victory has moved Day to fourth place on the Official World Golf Ranking.

“It’s an amazing feeling,” Day said. “I’ve been working so hard for this. I was visualizing myself holding the trophy, just like I did at the Match Play. I’m really proud of myself to hang in there and grind it out.”
