Phoenix Open: Gary Woodland defeats Chez Reavie in play-off

In March a year ago, when expecting twins his wife had a miscarriage and the couple lost a baby, whilst the other baby was born 10 weeks premature. "My wife kind of surprised me with him", Woodland said. I mean, obviously, I knew what's been going on the last couple years, short game needed some adjustment.

"We're just building, we're going to keep growing, keep getting better, I still got some work to do". Hopefully, its the start of something special.”.

Woodland fired a 7-under 64 to overcome a three-shot deficit to Rickie Fowler at the start of Sunday's Waste Management Phoenix Open finale and beat Chez Reavie with a par on the first extra frame. He appeared to have handed the initiative back to Woodland when he dropped a shot at the 16th, but then came a birdie at the 17th, and so he came to the last requiring a birdie to force a playoff.

Reavie gained momentum with an eagle on the par-five third hole during his final round, but a bogey on the par-three 16th forced him to birdie the last two in order to tie Woodland atop the leaderboard.

In the playoff on 18, Woodland hit short of the green from the left fairway bunker and chipped to two feet to set up his third PGA Tour victory and first since 2013. “And sure enough today it all clicked and I made some putts early, gave me some confidence and really hit the ball well coming down the stretch.”.

The crowd was estimated at 64,273 for a record weeklong total of 719,179. Phil Mickelson, Matt Kuchar, Chesson Hadley and Bryson DeChambeau tied for fifth another shot off the pace.

Fowler's collapse, meanwhile, hardly dispelled his reputation as a player renowned for struggling to close out the deal, having now converted only one of six 54-hole leads on the PGA Tour into a victory.

He made his record-tying 29th start in the event he won in 1996, 2005, and 2013.

"Was in good position to make birdie there, a little unfortunate to make bogey, (but) other than that solid day, kept moving in the right direction", Fowler told the Golf Channel after his 11th consecutive round of 70 or better at the venue. I have been playing well for a while now and was really in control of all parts of my game all day long. "I had no idea where he hit it because I was so upset that that even happened".

The American was five-under for the front nine before a insane back nine which included two dropped shots and four birdies including three in a row at 15, 16 and 17. He went to the 18th hole needing to hole out on his second shot to do so but made double bogey instead.

Reavie is a local Scottsdale resident who played for Arizona State in college.
