Tway wins first US PGA Tour title in playoff as Snedeker fades

New Zealand's Danny Lee plays a tee shot at the Silverado Resort and Spa course

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, who started the day with a three-shot lead and led by five with 11 remaining in regulation, fell by the wayside with a par at the first playoff hole.

It was the first PGA Tour victory for Tway, the son of 1986 PGA Championship victor Bob.

After Tway and Moore twice birdied the 18th in the playoff, they continued at the par-four 10th, where Tway finally prevailed just before sunset. "I basically gave it away and it stinks right now, but I'll get over this and maybe it will help me down the road".

"I'm kind of at a loss for words", he said afterwards.

"It's done, and I didn't do it", he said. "On a day like today it's not about necessarily how you're swinging, it's about how you just get the ball in the hole and somehow I managed to do that". "There was debris flying everywhere".

Phil Mickelson carded a 72 on Sunday to tie for 17th at 8 under. Once the playoff started, I was just trying to hit good shots. "I hit two balls out of bounds on the fifth hole trying to go for the green, but other than that, I played pretty well".

Starting his 19th full season on the tour, Baddeley, 37, could not quite add to his four victories there but added $241,280 ($A342,000) to his $US20,543,617 in career earnings while some younger countrymen also impressed.

"For a while I didn't think we were going to play and then when we played, I didn't really play", the 59-year-old Hall of Famer said.

Two-time defending champion Brendan Steele had a 75 to finish at 3 under.
