MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Justin Leonard won the Stanford St. Jude
Championship in a playoff Sunday, holing a 19-foot birdie putt on
the second extra hole to beat Masters champion Trevor Immelman and
Robert Allenby.

Leonard blew a one-stroke lead with two holes left to drop into
the playoff. But the Texan who had survived a final round that had
as many as six players tied for the lead won on the 150-yard, par-3
11th when Immelman pushed his birdie attempt past the hole.

It's Leonard's 12th PGA Tour title, his second at TPC Southwind
and his first since the 2007 Valero Texas Open. He closed with a
4-under 68 to match Allenby (65) and Immelman (69) at 4-under 276.
Leonard earned $1.08 million.
