CHERRY HILLS VILLAGE, Colo. (AP) The bad swing a week ago is a distant memory. The blown lead Sunday – that wasn’t enough to derail Billy Horschel, either.

Horschel let a three-shot lead drop to nothing early in the final round of the BMW Championship before rebounding for a two-stroke victory over Bubba Watson.

Horschel shot a 1-under 69 and finished at 14-under 266 to put himself in prime position for the FedEx Cup title and its $10 million bonus at the Tour Championship next week.

”If I were a betting man, I’d put some money on me,” said Horschel, who made $1.44 million for his second career PGA Tour victory.

Horschel heads into the final week of the playoff chase in second place in the points standings thanks to the victory and his tie for second a week ago – when he chunked a 6-iron well short on the final hole at TPC Boston, squandering a chance to win or force extra holes with playoff leader Chris Kirk.

This time, nursing a two-shot lead, Horschel smoothed a 9-iron into the middle of the 18th green and the only drama was whether he’d have time for a quick pit stop before he had to putt. Horschel sprinted up the fairway, ducked under the ropes and was back in plenty of time to two-putt and close out the victory.

Watson finished with a 66.

The top 30 in the FedEx Cup standings advanced to the finale in Atlanta.

QUEBEC CHAMPIONSHIP

QUEBEC CITY (AP) – Wes Short Jr. made an 8-foot eagle putt on the final hole to win the Quebec Championship for his first Champions Tour’s title.

The 51-year-old Short played the final 10 holes in 8 under for an 8-under 64 and a one-stroke victory over Scott Dunlap in the first PGA Tour-sanctioned event in the area since 1956.

Dunlap, the Boeing Classic winner two weeks ago, also eagled the par-5 18th for a 64.

Moments after Dunlap’s eagle putt, Short holed a 20-foot birdie putt at No. 17 to pull within one. Short set up the winning putt with a hybrid from 251 yards on the par-5 closing hole.

Short finished at 15-under 201 at La Tempete and earned $240,000 to jump from 36th to 20th on the money list with $379,719. He won in Las Vegas in 2005 for his lone PGA Tour title.

Two-time U.S. Open champion Lee Janzen closed with a 72 to tie for 23rd at 7 under in his first Champions Tour event. He turned 50 last week.

CHIQUITA CLASSIC

DAVIDSON, N.C. (AP) – Adam Hadwin won the Chiquita Classic to jump from fourth to second on the Web.com Tour money list after the second of four events in the Web.com Tour Finals.

The 26-year-old Canadian, the Chile Classic winner in March, closed with a 4-under 68 for a two-stroke victory over John Peterson. Hadwin finished at 18-under 270 at River Run.

The former Louisville player earned $180,000 to push his season total to $473,667. He wrapped a PGA Tour card with his fourth-place finish on the regular-season money list and is competing with the other top-25 players for PGA Tour priority, with regular-season earnings counting in their totals and the final leader getting a spot in The Players Championship.

Nos. 126-200 in the FedEx Cup standings and Nos. 26-75 from the Web.com Tour’s regular-season money list are playing for 25 PGA Tour cards based on their earnings in the four tournaments.

Peterson shot a 68. He earned $108,000 and has made $127,600 in the first two Web.com Tour Finals events, more than enough to regain his PGA Tour card after finishing 179th in the FedEx Cup standings.

EUROPEAN MASTERS

CRANS-MONTANA, Switzerland (AP) – American David Lipsky won the European Masters, beating England’s Graeme Storm with a par on the first hole of a playoff.

Lipsky closed with a 5-undr 65 to match Storm at 18-under 262 on Crans-sur-Sierre’s Seve Ballesteros Championship Course. Storm finished with a 68 in the event sanctioned by the European and Asian tours.

Lipsky became the first Asia Tour member to win the event and the first American since Craig Stadler in 1985. Lipsky also took the money lead on the Asian Tour.

American Brooks Koepka and England’s Tyrrell Hatton tied for third, a stroke back. Koepka closed with a 67, and Hatton shot 65.
