Chris Kirk waited nearly eight years to win a PGA Tour event between his fourth and fifth wins, the latter of which cane in dramatic fashion at The 2023 Honda Classic. Kirk stuck his approach to the par-5 18th to tap-in range, and his birdie on the first hole of a playoff lifted him past feisty Eric Cole for the victory. Cole had a chance, playing his third shot from the sand to just outside of 10 feet for a birdie that would have extended the playoff. But the putt lipped out, and Kirk nudged his ball in for his first win since prevailing at Colonial in 2015. Kirk shot a one-under 69 in the final round. He would have won outright in regulation, but he hit his second shot into the water on the 72nd hole.. Cole put the finishing touches on a closing 67 that gave him a chance to win. But he overcooked his second shot to the par five 18th which left him the testy 10-footer that wouldn’t drop. Kirk earned 1,512,000 for the victory.

Champion: Chris Kirk 69-62-66-69 – 266 $1,512,000
