Smith Blixt team wins PGA Zurich Clas­sic

Cape Breton Post - - Sports -

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.
