LEHI, Utah (AP) Patton Kizzire won the Utah Championship on Sunday for first Web.com Tour title, beating South Korea's Sung Kang with a 3-foot birdie putt on the second hole of a playoff.
Kizzire closed with a 3-under 69 to match Kang at 19-under 269 at Thanksgiving Point. The 29-year-old former Auburn player earned $117,000 to push his tour-leading total to $391,699 - giving him a lead of $123,211 over No. 2 Peter Malnati.
"Winning a tournament and winning the money title are the two goals that I have this year," Kizzire said. "To finally get winning the tournament under my belt gives me a solid advantage going into the last four tournaments to secure that top spot."
