Winner's Bag: What Jason Day used to win the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship

The win, Day's second on the PGA Tour, catapulted him to No. 4 in the world, but it wasn't without plenty of drama. The 26-year-old Aussie was 2 up with two holes to play and lost them both to the determined 23-year-old Dubuisson, who birdied the 17th then got up and down out of the front bunker on 18 to save par and send the match to extra holes. Then it got good. No, it got unbelievable. Dubuisson flew a 7-iron over the green into a jumping cactus on the first extra hole, stepped in and blasted out to three feet. Picking pieces of cholla out of his socks on the next tee, the ninth, Dubuisson lost his approach into the desert in nearly the identical spot where he conceded earlier in the match. Not this time. With his ball under a slightly less fearsome cactus, he chopped it out again for a save. Day was finally able to claim his first WGC title with a birdie on the 23rd hole, the drivable 15th, when Dubuisson ran out of miracles.
