Horschel, Piercy win by one at Zurich Classic

Billy Horschel and Scott Piercy held their nerve to secure the Zurich Classic of New Orleans following a flawless final round at TPC Louisiana.

Dufner and Perez also posted a blemish-free card but needed a final-hole birdie to join the clubhouse leaders on 22 under, only to get up-and-down from a bunker and finish one short.

"You never want to let a team mate down and to feel you helped out the team to victory, that was huge", said Horschel of winning his fifth tour title, one better than Piercy's career tally of four. Adrian Otaegui of Spain and Matt Wallace of England, who shared the 54-hole lead, each needed eagle on the par-5 18th to force a playoff.

Utilizing a team format for the second straight year, the Zurich Classic featured two rounds of best ball and two rounds of alternate shot from each pairing.

The US duo were one of 17 teams within five shots of the lead at the start of Sunday's second foursomes round at TPC Louisiana.

Horschel and Piercy opened the final round birdie-birdie and were bogey-free on the day.

The team of Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel finished third at 20 under. Hina Arakaki shot 2-over 74 in the final round and hung on for a one-shot victory in the Cyber Agent Ladies Golf Tournament on the Japan LPGA Tour.

"We're excited and pleased it is over but my partner played awesome this week and hat's off to him", said Piercy.

"Last putt, I didn't get aggressive with it".

They birdied their first two holes Sunday and then added two more birdies to begin the back nine as they went head-to-head against Dufner and Perez down the stretch. Tied for fourth at 19 under were the teams of Tommy Fleetwood and Chris Paisley, and Brice Garnett and Chesson Hadley.

Kisner and Brown faltered late with a bogey and double bogey on 15 and 16.

The pair started the day three shots back, but picked up shots at the first two holes and another at the seventh before seizing the lead with back-to-back birdies at 10 and 11 before finishing up with seven consecutive pars.
