It was anybody’s ball game on Sunday at the AT&T Byron Nelson. And we do mean anybody. Seven different golfers held a share of the lead at some point during the final round at TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney, Texas, including a trio trying to claim their maiden PGA Tour wins.

But in the end, it was experience that prevailed. Jason Day, a former World No. 1 who started the round two shots off the lead, rallied with a closing bogey-free nine-under 62 to win for the 13th time in his tour career but the first since 2018.

“It’s been a struggling few years, five years since my last win … so to be able to get the win the way I played today was really special,” said Day, who beat Si Woo Kim and Austin Eckroat by one shot with a 23-under 261 total. “I’m very pleased and happy with how things have progressed the last couple years for me.”

Day was alluding to back injuries and a bout with vertigo that made it unclear if he would ever win again on the PGA Tour after being a dominant player in the mid-2010s, when he won eight times in a 15-month period, including the 2015 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits. In 2022, he had fallen all the way to 175th in the World Ranking.

It was a fitting victory for Day in multiple ways. The Byron Nelson was the place where the 35-year-old Australian claimed his first tour win in 2010. And to secure the victory on Mother’s Day was bittersweet and heartwarming at the same time. Day’s mom, Adenil, was a significant influence on his life after the death of his father from stomach cancer when Jason was just 12. Adenil passed away after a five-year fight with cancer in March 2022.

The overall prize money payout at the Nelson is $9.5 million, the biggest purse of any non-major or designated event on the PGA Tour in 2023, with Day earning $1.71 million for his victory. Here’s the prize money payouts for each golfer who made the cut this week at TPC Craig Ranch.
