AVONDALE, La. - Jason Dufner beat Ernie Els with a birdie on the second hole of a playoff in the Zurich Classic on Sunday to win for the first time in 164 starts on the PGA Tour.
After entering the fourth round with a 2-shot lead, Dufner shot a 2-under 70 at TPC Louisiana. Els had a 67 to match Dufner at 19-under 269.
After both players missed birdie putts within 8 feet on the par-5 18th, they went back to the 18th tee for the second extra hole, which Dufner won by hitting the green in 2 strokes and tapping home a short birdie putt after Els' birdie attempt from the fringe narrowly missed.
On the second playoff hole, Els' tee shot went into a fairway bunker, and his second shot landed 137 yards from the pin. His third shot landed on the fringe, nearly 19 feet from the pin, but he nearly saved birdie from there, his putt missing by 2 inches.
Luke Donald shot a 67 to finish third at 17 under, and move past Rory McIlroy for the No. 1 ranking.
MOBILE, Ala. - Stacy Lewis won the Mobile Bay LPGA Classic for her second LPGA Tour title, holding off hard-charging teen Lexi Thompson by a stroke.
Lewis, who held a 5-stroke lead early in the day, reclaimed the edge with a birdie on No. 16, while the 17-year-old Thompson parred the final hole and had to wait.
Lewis parred out. Her week was so solid that her finishing 3-under 69 was her worst round en route to a 17-under 271 total.
Thompson didn't flinch under the pressure, closing with rounds of 66 and 65, tying her career low in a bogey-free round.
Lewis secured the win with a 2-putt par from the edge of the green.
SEOUL, South Korea - Austria's Bernd Wiesberger won the Ballantine's Championship for his first European Tour title, closing with a 4-under 68 for a 5-stroke victory.
Wiesberger finished at 18 under on the Blackstone course in the event also sanctioned by the Asian Tour.
