Tway wins Safeway Open for first PGA Tour title

Brandt Snedeker closed with three straight birdies in a three-under par 69 on Saturday to maintain his three-shot lead at the Safeway Open, the first event of the US PGA Tour 2018-19 season.

Tway fired a one-under 71 in the final round to join Moore (67) and Snedeker (74) in a play-off after the trio finished at 14 under.

"In the playoff I made three birdies, so that was pretty good", Tway said, after capping off his win on the 10th hole at the Silverado resort in California's Napa Valley.

Moore also birdied the first two playoff holes to stay alive, but he missed his birdie attempt at No. 10 before Tway sank the victor. "I knew the first part of the back nine was going to be playing tough, I was just trying to survive", said Snedeker, who kept his cool as his lead dwindled.

Martin Laird was the highest placed Briton but fell 31 places to joint 46th with a round of 76, including a double bogey on the par-3 second.

His father, Bob Tway, was an eight-time victor on the PGA Tour who captured the 1986 PGA Championship by sinking a bunker shot on the last hole to defeat Greg Norman.

And despite still leading by four shots at the turn, he proceeded to throw away the chance of a 10th career victory as he dropped shots on 10, 11 and 12. The birdie at the 18th put him in a five-way tie for fifth. "On a day like today it's not about necessarily how you're swinging, it's about how you just get the ball in the hole and somehow I managed to do that".

Snedeker was the first to be eliminated with an opening par, while Moore and Tway swapped birdies for the first two playoff holes.

But he immediately gave the shot back at the 17th, where he was far left off the tee and in the pine straw under a tree.

"I was just trying to put the ball in the fairway, which was very hard", Tway said. "It sucks right now".

Luke List jumped into that bunch with an eagle at 18 to cap his 67.
