Diminutive left-hander Brian Harman turned into a giant-killer when he rolled in a 30-foot birdie putt at the final hole to win the Wells Fargo Championship on Sunday and snuff out Dustin Johnson's hopes of winning a fourth consecutive start.
He carded 68 to finish at 10-under-par 278 for his second PGA Tour victory, one stroke ahead of fellow Americans Johnson (67) and Pat Perez (68).
Dustin Johnson needed a couple of days to shake off the rust at the Wells Fargo Championship but the world number one's play over the last 36 holes took him within a shot of a playoff and proved there are no lingering effects from a fall that ruled him out of last month's Masters. Johnson made the cut on the number, and then went 67-67 on the weekend, including a 15-foot birdie putt on the final hole, to almost pull out another victory.
"It's very hard to stay patient because you know what it feels like to win, you know what it takes", he said. "Just trusting that I'm pretty good at what I do". "It just wasn't getting close enough".
He hit a pitch up the slope to four feet for birdie and a 68.
The Georgian native, who birdied his final two holes, was enjoying a good run of form prior to the tournament and has now recorded three straight top-15 finishes.
"I did have a lot of time off so I didn't really know what to expect this week because I didn't really get to practice leading into this tournament, either, so most of my practice I've done since I've been here", Johnson said.
Four down after 11 holes at Club de Golf Mexico, Wie twice rallied to tie the long-hitting Yin and won with a birdie on the par-5 20th hole.
The 51-year-old Daly had not won on tour since the PGA Tour's 2004 Buick Invitational.
Not long after three-putting No. 15 for the second bogey of his round, Harman bounced back with a birdie on 17 and nailed the title-clinching putt on 18, a 580-yard par-5.
"Not much has changed", he said.
"I think it was the definition of survival out there", Wie said. But I stuck to my game plan and just did it. He made short birdie putts at 12 and 13, missed the green at 15 and 16 but pitched to three feet and sank tense par putts, then closed with a 15-foot birdie putt.
Jon Rahm finished fourth at 8-under and Smylie Kaufman, Kevin Tway and Byeong Hun An all tied for fifth place at 7-under.
