PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) -- Steve Lowery birdied the first
playoff hole to beat Vijay Singh at the Pebble
Beach National Pro-Am.
Singh bogeyed three straight holes on the back nine and needed a
birdie on 18 to force the first playoff at Pebble Beach since 1992.
It's the third career victory for Lowery, and his first since
the 2000 Southern Farm Bureau Classic. All three of his wins have
come in playoffs.
Lowery shot a 4-under-par 68 to make up three shots on Singh in
the final round. At 47, he's the oldest winner in the 71-year
history of the tournament.
Corey Pavin, Dudley Hart and John Mallinger finished one shot
back and one ahead of Jason Day.
