Smith Blixt team wins PGA Zurich Classic
AVONDALE, La. _ The team of Cameron Smith and Jonas Blixt won the Zurich Classic on the fourth playoff hole Monday, capturing a newformat tournament that had been held over a day because of darkness.
Smith hit a 58-yard approach shot within 3 1/2 couple feet of the pin, and the Aussie sank a birdie putt on the par-5 18th hole to give himself and his Swedish teammate the victory. Smith and Blixt could have won on earlier playoff holes but missed short birdie putts.
For the 23-year-old Smith, this was his first PGA Tour victory.
