Kevin Kisner overcame a six-way playoff to win the PGA Tour Wyndham Championship. Kisner finished at four-under 66, ending the week at 15 under, but so did Brendan Grace, Kevin Na, Adam Scott, Roger Sloan, Si-Woo Kim, and Webb Simpson. It was a birdie putt at the second extra hole that sealed Kisner’s fate as the winner of the event, his first success in his past six play-off appearances. This is also his first win since the 2019 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play. Overnight leader, Russel Henley, finished tied at second place.

Kisner resumed the final round some shots behind but after a birdie at the first hole and par putts between the fourth and sixth hole, he was soon gaining on the lead. He, however, stumbled after making a bogey at the eighth hole with another at the 14th. But he made up for it with a 12-foot birdie at the 16th, following it with par shots at the 17th and 18th hole. But he was not the only one who was impressive as other players also had good games too leading to the 18th. Scott had a good run, with eight birdies, but he was unable to convert it to a win. Sloan birdied two of his last two holes but even that was not enough to secure his win. At the end of the day, there were six players tied, forcing the game into a play-off, the biggest in the history of the PGA Tour.

But even the play-off was also competitive after all six men failed to make a birdie on the first extra hole, leading to a second extra hole. This was where Kisner was able to fire his winning birdie, giving him his first victory in two years.

The win marked Kisner’s fourth PGA Tour title as well as his 10th professional title.
