Matt Every leads the AT&T Byron Nelson but still has to complete his third round on the final day after darkness stopped play on Saturday

"It just feels unbelievable".

It took him 159 starts to get his first PGA Tour win. "My dad gave me a lot of support when I was young".

Momentum swung decidedly in the 31-year-old's favor on the par-four 15th when he sank a 23-foot birdie putt for the outright lead. Every, who started that 431-yard par 4 tied for the lead, was in the middle of the fairway before what he called "just a bad shot" on his approach that set up a three-putt for bogey.

Kang Sung-hoon won the AT&T Byron Nelson in Dallas, Texas on Sunday.

"I watched him for 72 holes".

"Got in a nice rhythm", Every said.

Every finished with a 66.

Twice over the last two days, Every overcame deficits of at least four strokes and went ahead of Kang.

The verdict: The No. 3 golfer in the world, who played in the event for the first time this week since it was moved from TPC Four Seasons Las Colinas to Trinity Forest Golf Club, doesn't exactly see the tournament's current home as an upgrade.

A four-man playoff looked on the cards when Kinhult birdied the 17th and playing partner Wallace missed from four feet, but after Wallace also missed for birdie on the last, Kinhult holed from 12 feet to seal a remarkable win. "I just needed to keep making birdies".

Kang started the third round with a four-stroke lead, but trailed Every by one when play was stopped midway through that round Saturday night. "Then Saturday and Sunday, it's going".

"It was important going into next week".

Jordan Spieth, a member at the links-style course south of downtown Dallas, shot a 71 to tie for 29th at 11 under. Only 12 of 83 players finished the third round. He last won at the 2017 British Open, his third major victory. "Just trying to tighten everything up a little bit".

"Today's round wasn't great, but overall a pretty solid week, especially on the greens", Spieth told CBS after his round.

An exhausted Kang said he made a decision to just relax and have fun despite a lack of sleep, with Saturday's play suspended for darkness and the third round completed earlier on Sunday. Kang strung together three straight birdies at eight, nine and 10.

"It was like a normal round of golf for me, it felt like it", said Every, whose two PGA Tour victories were both at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, in 2014 and 2015.

The Waterford native was level par for the back nine and picked up a birdie at the turn (the first hole) before dropping shots at 4 and five. He sits nine-under par, while Seamus Power had three holes to play before play was halted. He got the ball out, but it hit the top of the hill and rolled back into a bunker. "Yesterday we finished too late", Kang said. "I was telling my caddie I'm really exhausted".

Matt Every will carry a one-shot lead into the final day of the AT&T Byron Nelson after a rain-hit third round was suspended due to darkness.
