FedEx Cup golf champion Bill Haas beat major winners Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley in a sudden-death playoff to win the latest US PGA Tour Open in California this morning.
Haas drained a 43-foot birdie putt on the second playoff hole to see off his American countrymen and take home the $1.4 million NZ dollar winner's cheque.
Earlier, he shot a two-under 69 on the final day to finish at seven-under.
A birdie on the second last hole ensured Haas posted the clubhouse lead, leaving a nervous wait as Mickelson and Bradley played the 18th just one back.
In true Hollywood fashion, Mickelson sank a 27-foot birdie from the fringe and Bradley slid his 13-foot birdie effort into the hole to set up a three-way extra holes battle.
All three players parred the first extra hole, the 18th, before Haas claimed victory at the next hole, the 10th, leaving Mickelson and Bradley tied second.
