Bubba Watson won for the first time on the PGA Tour, coming from six shots down to win the Travelers Championship in a three-way playoff.

Watson sunk a 3-foot par putt on the second playoff hole to beat Scott Verplank and Ryder Cup captain Corey Pavin, after they all finished at 14-under par.

Justin Rose, who was coming off his first PGA Tour win earlier this month at the Memorial, had a three-stroke lead coming into Sunday.

But the 29-year-old Englishman was 1-over par on the front nine, and collapsed on the back, shooting a 5-over 75.

Pavin was eliminated on the first playoff hole.

Verplank left his tee shot short on the second playoff hole, the par-3 16th, and came up short on a birdie putt.
