Strebpulls­out title inplayoff

-

Robert Streb made an 8-foot par putt to stay alive in a playoff and ended it on the second extra hole with a pitching wedge that came an inch from going in, giving him a victory over Kevin Kisner in the RSM Classic in St. Simons Island, Ga.

Streb won for the second time on the PGA Tour, his other title also coming in a playoff at Sea Island six years ago.

He rallied from a five-shot deficit in 2014. This time, he lost a three-shot lead until a 6-iron to 12 feet on the par-3 17th hole for a birdie that allowed him to close with a 2-under 68 and force extra holes.

Kisner, whose first of of three PGA Tour titles came at Sea Island in 2015, closed with a 63.

They finished at 19-under 263, one shot ahead of Cameron Tringale (62).
