Woodland triumphs in Phoenix Open playoff

Photo Finish In Phoenix

Scot Martin Laird is then in the group at seven under alongside world number two Jon Rahm after a 67.

The 42-time TOUR victor was trying to win for the first time with his brother, Tim, on the bag, and it didn't look out of the realm of possibility when Mickelson birdied holes 15, 16 and 17.

Woodland began Sunday three shots back of Rickie Fowler's lead.

During round one of the Waste Management Phoenix...

Gary Woodland celebrates after winning the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open golf tournament at TPC Scottsdale.

Woodland shot up the leaderboard Sunday with five birdies to make the turn in 30 shots.

The last time there had been four playoffs in a row on the PGA Tour was 2011. He went to the 18th hole needing to hole out on his second shot to do so but made double bogey instead.

It had been almost 10 years since Reavie's first and only win to date on the PGA Tour when successful at the 2008 Canadian Open but when he birdied his final two holes including one from 25 feet at the last he had joined Woodland at 18 under par and the door was open for win number two.

The couple were expecting twins previous year but lost one of them. My caddie asked me when we got done, did I know I made nine birdies.

"I was in the zone", he said.

Woodland, holding his baby Jaxson and fighting back tears, said, "He's a miracle and puts this in perspective". But instead of making a run at his second sub-60 round in a little over a year, Thomas had to fight for an even-par 71 that left him eight shots back.

Phil Mickelson endured a rollercoaster final round to finish in a tie for fifth at 14 under with Chesson Hadley, Bryson DeChambeau and Matt Kuchar.

"I couldn't wait for 2018 to start", said Woodland, who somehow made it to the Tour Championship last season.

American Gary Woodland claimed his third PGA Tour title with victory at the first play-off hole in the Waste Management Phoenix Open in Arizona.

The result moves him from 49th to 41st in the world, safer inside the top-50.

Sharma won the Joburg Open in December but this was something extra special from the Indian as he raced to 21 under par and beat Spain's Jorge Campillo by two, with Ryan Fox and Pablo Larrazabal a shot further adrift.
