Billy Horschel made par on the 17th hole to close out Scottie Scheffler, 2 Up, and claim victory at the WGC-Dell Match Play Championship.

After defeating Victor Perez in a semifinal match, Horschel went down early to the 24-year old Scheffler, but gained control before the turn, and never relinquished the lead as the two finalists traded pars and battled to ties on each of the remaining homeward holes at Austin Country Club.

The victory was the former Florida Gator’s sixth career PGA Tour title, and first individual title since the 2017 AT&T Byron Nelson (he won the team-based 2018 Zurich Classic with Scott Piercy).

Along with The WGC trophy, Horschel earned $1,820,000 and 550 FedExCup points. He also secured 74 first-place OWGR points to jump from No. 34 to 17th in the Official World Golf Rankings.

With the victory, Horschel was also awarded with a full three-year exemption through the 2024 PGA Tour season, and secured spots in the following 2021 and 2022 high-profile events:

  • The Masters (2021)
  • PGA Championship (2021)
  • Memorial Tournament (2021)
  • Sentry T of C (2022)
  • The Arnold Palmer (2022)
  • The PLAYERS (2022)

For his runner-up position, Scheffler earned $1,150,000 and 315 FedExCup points. He also picked up 45.6 OWGR points and cracked the top 25 (No. 22) for the first time in his young career.
