Reavie gained momentum with an eagle on the par-five third hole during his final round, but a bogey on the par-three 16th forced him to birdie the last two in order to tie Woodland atop the leaderboard.

Woodland was on the practice range, staying warmed up, when he heard the roar of the gallery at the 18th hole, which let him know that Chez Reavie had caught him and the Waste Management Phoenix Open would be decided in a sudden-death playoff.

Woodland needed two putts from the fringe at the par-four 18th to clinch victory after Reavie missed a 10-foot par putt at TPC Scottsdale in Arizona.

The 36-year-old Reavie, who has only won one previous PGA Tour event in his career, forced a playoff against eventual victor and fellow Kansas native Gary Woodland by earning birdies on the 17th and 18th holes to move to 18 under for the tournament.

Welcome to the Monday Finish, where Woodland's driving was characteristically strong, and he made 200 feet of putts on the weekend to break a five-year winless drought.

"Really didn't make enough putts the first three days to give myself a great chance today", said Schniederjans, whose previous best this season was a T7 at the Sony Open in Hawaii.

Fan favourite Rickie Fowler held the 54-hole lead on Saturday night but was overtaken by a host of players including eventual victor Gary Woodland on Sunday. He sandwiched a birdie at 13 between to bogeys, but birdied 15, 16 and 17 to seize the lead.

Best Buy to stop selling physical CDs
Target is also considering pulling the format from its shelves, though are bargaining with labels over the decision. Best Buy used to be a place where you could walk down the aisles and browse through thousands of CDs and DVDs.

Woodland spoke to CBS while holding young Jaxson, who was born last June, three months after he and his wife lost one of their unborn twins due to complications during the pregnancy. "Obviously I came to the game late, but I got through Q-School very quickly", Woodland said.

3 Brendan Steele quietly posted a 4-under 67 to finish T3.

Mickelson almost got into a playoff with Chez Reavie and Gary Woodland on Sunday.

Four shots behind overnight, Sharma rattled off four birdies in a row from the fourth to get within two strokes of the lead, then holed a long putt on the ninth to turn in 31 and cut the gap to one.

"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. I didnt even know that I did that. "I'm just so excited to share this with him and my family". Woodland had not won a PGA Tour event since 2013, and he was happy to get back into the winner's circle.

Phil Mickelson had the fans roaring with three straight birdies, the second a 30-footer on 16. The 47-year-old Hall of Famer tied for fifth at 14 under after a 69.

Sharma, 21, who also won the Joburg Open in December, described 62 as his "lucky" number after finishing with a 21-under total of 267 to pocket the first prize of $500,000.
