Bo Van Pelt won for the first time on the PGA Tour with a birdie on the second hole of a sudden death playoff over John Mallinger on Sunday at the U.S. Bank Championship.
Van Pelt had two putts to win, leaving a 26-footer a little
short before sinking a 2-foot birdie for his first victory in his
229th tour event.
On the second playoff hole, the 29-year-old Mallinger rolled his
second shot in a greenside bunker. Mallinger got out, but left
himself a 28-footer for birdie that he pushed right of the hole and
settled for par.
That would be plenty for Van Pelt, who had a chance on the first
hole to end it, but looked nervous and missed a 13-foot eagle putt.
He settled for a tap-in birdie to put the pressure on Mallinger,
who made a 5-footer setting up the final scramble.
