SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Australia’s Brett Rumford eagled the first hole of a three-way playoff to win the Ballantine’s Championship in South Korea on Sunday.
Rumford was leading by two shots when he double-bogeyed No. 17. He holed a 10-foot par putt at the last to finish at 11-under 277 and force a playoff with Marcus Fraser of Australia and Peter Whiteford of Scotland.
Rumford then holed a 4-foot eagle to earn the victory.
South African Louis Oosthuizen, the highest-ranked player in the field at No. 7, shot a final-round 69 to finish three strokes behind the leaders in a share of fifth place.
