Tway clinches first PGA Tour victory in playoff

Tway clinches first PGA Tour victory in playoff”

The son of eight-time PGA Tour victor Bob Tway, the 30-year-old former Oklahoma State player beat Ryan Moore on the par-4 10th after Brandt Snedeker dropped out on their first extra trip down the par-5 18th. Tway and Moore then repeated their birdies on the same hole before the 30-year old, son of former pro Bob - an eight-time victor, made another birdie on the 10th hole to edge out Moore and claim the win.

Needing to birdie the par-5 18th to win, Snedeker instead found a fairway bunker off the tee, pushed his second shot into the rough and couldn't get closer than 48 feet with his approach.

Tway, the 30-year-old son of Greg Norman's 1986 US PGA Championship nemesis Bob Tway, triumphed from Moore with a 10-foot birdie putt at the third play-off hole after Snedeker was eliminated at the first.

"I was just trying to put the ball in the fairway, which was very hard", Tway said. "I'm kind of at a loss for words right now". That honor, at least for most of Sunday, appeared to be solidly in line for Brandt Snedeker, who entered the day with a three-shot lead and still held the lead with three holes to play.

After Tway and Moore twice birdied the 18th in the playoff, they continued at the par-four 10th, where Tway finally prevailed just before sunset. "I hit some good shots in the playoff, birdied a couple holes and today just wasn't good enough". "I was just anticipating a really tough day and it was".

Snedeker said he'd remember the event as one he "gave away".

"It was challenging but yet very playable conditions", Mickelson said.

Starting his 19th full season on the tour, Baddeley, 37, could not quite add to his four victories there but added $241,280 ($A342,000) to his $US20,543,617 in career earnings while some younger countrymen also impressed. "He's pretty proud of me".
