Mark Wilson won the frost-delayed Waste Management Phoenix Open on Monday for his second victory in three starts this year, making a 9-foot birdie putt on the second playoff hole against Jason Dufner. Wilson, two strokes ahead when play resumed Monday, closed with a 2-under 69 to match Dufner at 18 under. Dufner shot a 66, birdieing Nos. 16 and 17.
The 36-year-old Wilson, who won the Sony Open in Hawaii last month in a 36-hole Sunday finish, made a 4-foot par putt on the 18th to extend the playoff after Dufner had tapped in for par. Wilson then won on the par-4 10th, setting up the deciding putt with a 7-iron approach from the middle of the fairway.
Dufner was facing a 7-foot par putt when Wilson ended the playoff. Delays for frost and frozen turf the first four days forced the Monday finish. Wilson earned $1,098,000 for his fourth PGA TOUR title and moved into the FedExCup points lead. He also won the 2007 Honda Classic and 2009 Mayakoba Golf Classic.
Third-round leader Tommy Gainey, a stroke back with two holes, closed with a 74 to tie for eighth at 14 under. He made a triple bogey on the par-4 17th after hitting into the water twice on the driveable hole.
