PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — Sepp Straka is going back to Georgia in a few weeks. He's headed to the Masters, after pulling off a huge comeback to win the Honda Classic.
Straka, down by five shots entering the final round, tapped in for birdie in the rain on the final hole and ended up beating Shane Lowry by one shot to become the first Austrian winner in PGA Tour history.
He shot a 4-under 66 on Sunday to finish at 10 under.
Lowry shot his third consecutive round of 67, his 9 under total for the week coming up one short.
First-round leader Kurt Kitayama was alone in third at 8 under.
Daniel Berger — who led by six shots with 19 holes left in the tournament — simply fell apart Sunday, his round of 74 leaving him 7 under for the week and three shots behind Straka.
