Baddeley takes out Barbasol Championship


Aaron Baddeley claimed his first PGA Tour win in more than five years with a play-off victory at the Barbasol Championship.

The Australian birdied the fourth play-off hole to secure victory over South Korean Kim Si-woo at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Alabama on Sunday.

For Baddeley, it marked his fourth win on the PGA Tour and first since the 2011 Northern Trust Open.

The 35-year-old had fired a five-under 66 in the final round to finish at 18 under, alongside Kim (63).

The pair managed pars at the first three play-off holes before returning to the 18th for a third time and Baddeley made a 24-foot birdie putt to secure the win.

Michael Johnson was outright third at 17 under, two shots clear of Richard H. Lee, Michael Thompson, Andres Gonzales and Jhonattan Vegas.

Vegas had been the man in control after a stunning second-round 60, but he finished with back-to-back 72s.
