Facing nearly the same putt he had in regulation, Scott Stallings again birdied the par-3 18th hole at The Old White TPC this time for the win in a playoff.

The victory is the first of Stallings’ career and nets him 500 FedExCup points.

Stallings is the sixth rookie and 10th first-time winner to win on the PGA TOUR this year. With the win, Stallings moves from 88th to 26th in FedExCup points.

Bill Haas led off the playoff — and hit a nearly identical shot as he did in regulation with his ball just getting onto the back shelf at the par-3 hole. Haas used 9-iron. Estes, meanwhile, hit an 8-iron inside of Haas hole high maybe 15 feet right of the hole. Stallings was the last to go and he hit almost the same shot he hit in regulation when he made birdie, hitting it just outside 5 feet. All three will now have almost identical putts to what they faced in regulation.
