 Jason eventually overcame Victor Dubuisson at the 23rd hole to edge a win in an epic WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship final. Victor managed a couple of wonderful up and downs to deny Jason, he was still three holes down with just six  remaining. Victor reduced the deficit with a birdie on the 13th, and then kept the match alive with another on the 17th. All square at the end of regulation, Victor then  bounded through the green at the first extra hole, his ball coming to rest in a seemingly unplayable lie underneath a cactus. He somehow conjured a pitch onto the green and to within four feet of the hole, from where he holed for par after Jason had saved his par from a greenside bunker.

Following that escape Victor’s approach shot to the par four ninth careened into more desert bushes. Once agin he casually pitched out and calmly holed from seven feet for par after Jason had missed his birdie attempt.

Tom Watson Tweeted;

“Two of the greatest up-and/downs I have ever seen Victor!!!” 

 Gary Player agreed

“This is simply fantastic stuff!! @Vdubush is Houdini.”

Jason  finally sealed victory with a birdie on the fifth extra hole after an excellent pitch to three feet, he too was amazed at Victor’s escapes;

“The guy saves par straight out of the cactus twice and for a 23-year-old kid he has a lot of game and you are going to see a lot of him for years to come. I think the biggest thing was how much do I want to win. I kept saying that to myself last night and visualizing myself with the trophy and I am just glad I could finish it off.”

“The best thing about this is that every day felt like Sunday, it’s a good way to handle your nerves and understand what you are feeling under the pump. We played six rounds and just to know you can dig down and keep fighting and not quit until it’s over, that’s what it’s all about. I never wanted something so bad in my life and I am definitely very pleased with it.”

Victor ignored the two magical up and downs, and simply said;

”I’m disappointed because I made some terrible shots.”

In the third/fourth place play-off match, Ernie Els birdied the 18th to force extra holes, only for Rickie Fowler to make his own birdie on the first extra hole to take possession of third place.
