IRVING, Texas (AP) - Rory Sabbatini has won the Byron Nelson
Championship, finishing with a two-stroke victory over late-charging Brian Davis.
Sabbatini shot a 6-under 64 Sunday to finish with a tournament record at 19-under 261 for his fifth PGA Tour victory.
Davis, whose closing 64 gave him his third career runner-up finish, made a 26-foot eagle putt at the 546-yard No. 16 to get to 17 under. Sabbatini, coming off a birdie, was standing on the 16th tee box at the time, and could only shake his head when his lead suddenly went from three to one.
But Sabbatini responded with a tap-in birdie on the same hole, after his 21-foot eagle try slid just past and sent him crouching in disbelief when it didn't go in the hole.
It is the first win for Sabbatini since 2007 at Colonial.
