American Bubba Watson recorded his first US PGA Tour victory at the Travelers Championship, dropping a three-foot par putt on the second play-off hole to defeate Scott Verplank and Corey Pavin.
Watson and Verplank both birdied the 18th to start the playoff while Pavin was eliminated after hitting his approach into a greenside bunker and failing to hole out.
Watson and Verplank moved on to the par-three 16th hole and neither hit particularly good tee shots with Verplank missing the green on the left and Watson leaving himself a birdie putt of over 40 feet.
Verplank failed to get up-and-down and Watson made his par putt to wrap up the victory. Watson had birdied the 72nd hole to get to 14-under-par 266 and join the playoff. Verplank shot a six-under 64 while Watson and Pavin shot 66.
Third-round leader Justin Rose dropped to a tie for ninth after a 75.
