Horschel holds on for title at BMW Championship

CHERRY HILLS VILLAGE, Colo. (AP) Billy Horschel gave up the lead, then took it back, and ended up with a two-shot victory over Bubba Watson at the BMW Championship.

Horschel shot 1-under 69 on Sunday to finish at 14-under 266. He'll head into next week's Tour Championship ranked second in the points standings, meaning a win there will earn him the FedEx Cup and a $10 million bonus.

Watson shot a 66 but never got closer than the final two-shot deficit.

Ryan Palmer overcame a three-shot deficit to start the day and was tied with Horschel after 11 holes, but made double bogey on the 13th to fall three behind. Still, his tie for fourth vaulted him well inside the top 30.

Sergio Garcia was two back going into the par-5 17th, but made a triple bogey and tied for fourth.
