Aaron shot a marvelous -6 under 65 final round to win the AT&T Byron Nelson by three shots at -23 under par, a new tournament record;
“It’s everything I’ve dreamed of.”
“I felt like when it rained today I was really going to tear the course up just because it allowed me to hit driver, which is my strength.”
“I got a lot of short irons in my hand and was able to make a lot birdies.”
“Just a ton of self-belief, it was always there, but to do it on this stage, to know I’ve done it, really helped me today.”
“I felt oddly calm all day long and to play as good as I did, bogey free, was awesome.”
Marc Leishman, Australia, who had led for three rounds carded a final round -3 under 68, and second place at -20 under par.
In a three-way tie for third place at -19 under par were, birthday boy Branden Grace from South Africa who carded a magical -9 under 62 last round, with J.J. Spaun, USA, -8 under 63 today, and Keith Mitchell, USA, also -8 under 63 for his final round.
