American Kevin Kisner won the PGA Tour’s first six-way playoff game to claim the Wyndham Championship.
The 37-year-old hopeful Ryder Cup finishes at 15 under at Sedgefield Country Club in North Carolina, tied with compatriot Kevin Na, South Korea’s Kim Si-woo, Australia’s Adam Scott, Canada’s Roger Sloan and South Africa’s Branden Grace .
Kisner shot a final four-under-66 before securing the win with a birdie on the second playoff hole. It earned him his fourth PGA Tour victory and his overall 10th professional title. The leader of the night, Russell Henley, ended a shot further back in a three-game tie for the seventh after a final round 71.
Kisner, who went to 29th place in the FedEx position, said: ‘Every time you win here, it’s hard, and you never know when it’s going to happen again, so you have to cherish every time. It was a bit of a struggle for me, I started the year with a playoff game and struggled through the spring, and I got in shape here late in the summer and finished in the FedExCup playoffs. To end the season with a win and go to the playoffs, and a chance to win the FedExCup Championship, is just a great week. ”
Justin Rose finished two strokes off the pass in a five-way game for the 10th after a final round 67 that included an eagle, four birdies and three bogeys.
