Emiliano Grillo (ARG) has won the Charles Schwab Challenge ($8.7 million) on the U.S. Professional Golf (PGA) Tour.
Grillo carded six birdies, two bogeys and a double-bogey for a 2-under 68 in the fourth round on the final day of play at Colonial Country Club (par 70, 7,209 yards) in Fort Worth, Texas, USA, on Monday.
With a final total of 8-under par 272, Grillo was tied with Adam Shank (USA) for the lead heading into the final round.
After failing to win the first overtime, the pair played a second overtime on the par-3 16th hole.
Grillo’s tee shot was a little off, but he was fortunate to hit the green and roll down the slope to land 1.4 meters from the hole.
Shank’s tee shot, on the other hand, missed the green and landed in the rough.
Shank made a late comeback with a precise approach shot, but Grillo dropped a birdie putt to take the trophy.
It was a heart-wrenching moment for Grillo, who was two shots off the lead heading into the fourth round.
Grillo, who had a two-stroke lead, made a double bogey on the par-4 18th to fall behind Shank and Harry Hall (England), who had yet to finish.
Shank bogeyed the 18th to force overtime, while Hall bogeyed the 18th to drop into a tie for third with Scottie Schaeffler (USA).
Grillo, who came from behind to win the playoff, picked up his second career victory. It was his first win in seven years and seven months since the Price.com Open in October 2015.
After three straight top-10 finishes in rounds one through three, Byung-Hoon Ahn dropped four strokes on the day with two birdies and six bogeys to finish in a tie for 21st place at 1-under par 279.
Ahn was in a tie for fourth place at 7-under through two rounds and in contention for his first Tour victory, but faltered in the third round (2-over par).메이저놀이터
