Jay Haas birdied the first hole of a playoff with Bart Bryant on Sunday in the Tobshiba Classic to become the second-oldest winner in PGA Tour Champions history.
At 62 years 10 months and 7 days, Haas trails only Mike Fetchick, the 1985 Hilton Head Seniors Invitational winner at 63 years to the day.
After opening with bogey-free rounds of 64 and 63 to take a five-stroke lead, Haas had to rally to get into the playoff. He made par saves on the par-3 17th and par-5 18th for a one-under 70 to match Bryant — who earlier bogeyed 18 to give Haas an opening — at 16-under 197.
