Woodland triumphs in Phoenix Open playoff

  • Gary Woodland in final-round action at TPC Scottsdale

"Just couldn't buy a putt", Fowler said.

Justin Thomas may not be quite so willing to return.

As soon as his winning putt dropped Sunday on the 18 green at TPC Scottsdale, Gary Woodland pointed to the sky.

Woodland fired a 64 on Sunday, seven under, including three birdies in the last four holes.

A par on the last saw Larrazabal sign for a 66, a score that was matched by Fox as the New Zealander birdied three of his last four holes.

"It means a huge amount to me to win again", he said. I just couldn't be happier for him. His 19-foot birdie try grazed the edge of the cup, and he spun around and yelled in frustration.

"On the 13th I knew I was somewhere near the leaders but on 16 I knew I had a two-shot lead". I'm comfortable on this course.

American Robert Garrigus hit the shot of the day at the driveable par-four 17th, nearly making a rare albatross. “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.”.

"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. However, Phil Mickelson cited the galleries as part of his Saturday success.

He looked set to claim the solo lead on Friday until he overcooked his chip shot at the par-four 17th for a soft bogey.

Alas, Mickelson simply ran out of holes.

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

"It's right up there with the putt I made to win in Canada", the 36-year-old former Arizona State player said. "I didn't think he was going to be there". He will now head to Pebble Beach, Calif., for next week's AT&T Pro-Am.

"I was in the zone", he said. They played in the final group with Reavie. "There's no reason why I shouldn't". The victor chipped in from 30 feet to save par at the sixth hole and took just 26 putts Sunday, one day after he needed just 27 in the third round.

Fowler began the day with a one-shot advantage and doubled his lead with a 12-foot birdie at the second, only for Reavie to move alongside by holing a 20-foot eagle from off the third green.

The duo finished three shots clear of countrymen Ollie Schniederjans and Brendan Steele.

Sharma won the Joburg Open in December but this was something extra special from the Indian as he raced to 21 under par and beat Spain's Jorge Campillo by two, with Ryan Fox and Pablo Larrazabal a shot further adrift.

DeChambeau, a physics major who applies his understanding of the science to his swing, rifled his approach shot to inside a foot to birdie the last and join Fowler at the top of the leaderboard. American Berry Henson also carded a 71 to finish at 15 under and close out the top 10. Not bad, for him, but he still has room for improvement.
