    NAPLES, US: Cameron Tringale and Jason Day come away with a par on No. 18 to shoot a final round seven-under 65 and win the Franklin Templeton Shootout on Saturday (Sunday in Manila).

    Day and Tringale combined to finish one shot better than defending champions Harris English and Matt Kuchar at 32-under-par 184 total.

    Day is a two-time winner on the PGA Tour, while Tringale has yet to win an official event on the US tour. This week’s tournament at Tiburon Golf Club is an unofficial event.

    English and Kuchar used a late push to apply pressure on Day and Tringale, but it was not quite enough. The defending champions carded a 10-under 62 to finish runner-up at 31-under 185.

    Ian Poulter and 2014 FedEx Cup champion Billy Horschel (61) were chasing the winners all day, but a bogey at the final hole proved to be costly as the pair finished tied for third with Keegan Bradley and Camilo Villegas (61) at 29-under 187.
