California, October 8: Kevin Tway claimed his maiden PGA Tour title with a play-off win at the Safeway Open on Sunday (October 7).
The American, 30, beat Ryan Moore and Brandt Snedeker in a three-man play-off in Napa, California, to secure his first success on the PGA Tour.
Snedeker, the overnight leader, dropped out of the play-off on the first hole after Tway and Moore made birdies at the 18th and he could only manage par.
The remaining duo repeated that before heading to the par-four 10th, where Tway made another birdie to clinch the crown.
Tway fired a one-under 71 in the final round to join Moore (67) and Snedeker (74) in a play-off after the trio finished at 14 under.
Luke List (67), Troy Merritt (68), Sam Ryder (69), Aaron Baddeley (69) and Im Sung-jae (71) were tied for fourth a shot further back.
J.B. Holmes finished outright ninth at 11 under after shooting a four-under 68 in the final round.
Phil Mickelson was unable to get going on the weekend, following up his 74 with an even-par 72 to end up tied for 17th, while Brendan Steele (75) was five shots further back in his bid for a three-peat.
