Tway captures Safeway playoff for 1st career win

Tway captures Safeway playoff for 1st career win

The event was won by Kevin Tway, the son of Greg Norman's conqueror at the 1986 PGA Championship, Bob, after he beat Ryan Moore and Snedeker in a playoff.

He shot two-over-par 74, while Moore shot 67 and Tway 71. Tway and Moore then repeated their birdies on the same hole before the 30-year old, son of former pro Bob - an eight-time victor, made another birdie on the 10th hole to edge out Moore and claim the win.

The remaining duo repeated that before heading to the par-four 10th, where Tway made another birdie to clinch the crown.

Snedeker appeared to have things on cruise control at the Safeway Open, torching the North Course at Silverado Resort & Spa en route to a three-shot lead entering the final round.

Martin Laird was the highest placed Briton but fell 31 places to joint 46th with a round of 76, including a double bogey on the par-3 second.

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

And despite still leading by four shots at the turn, he proceeded to throw away the chance of a 10th career victory as he dropped shots on 10, 11 and 12.

Snedeker was eliminated at the first hole before Tway ended it with a birdie at the third extra hole.

At 18, his putt from off the green left him a tap-in for his fifth birdie of the day and a 16-under total of 200.

"Really disappointing", Snedeker said.

"I'm kind of at a loss for words", he said afterwards. "I played 63 holes of really damn good golf and nine holes I'd like to have back". "It sucks right now".

Luke List (final-round 67), Troy Merritt (68), Sam Ryder (69), Australia's Aaron Baddeley (69) and Sungjae Im (71) tied for fourth at 13 under.
