Martin Laird clinched his fourth PGA Tour title with a dramatic victory over Matthew Wolff and Austin Cook at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open on the second play-off hole.

The Scot fell into a play-off in Las Vegas after he bogeyed the 18th hole to finish alongside American pair Wolff and Cook on 23 under par but made amends with a birdie at the par-three 17th in sudden death.

Wolff and Cook had both posted five-under 66s to force their way into extra holes but missed birdie putts at both the 18th and then the 17th as they were both denied their second PGA Tour titles.

Laird has now won the event twice in his career, 11 years after he sealed his first PGA Tour title via a play-off at TPC Summerlin in 2009, and ended a seven-year title drought.

Laird began the day in a share of the lead at 20 under alongside Patrick Cantlay, who dropped out of contention on the front nine, and opened with five consecutive pars before he kick-started his round with back-to-back birdies to lead a congested leaderboard by two shots. ทีเด็ด 1×2

The 37-year-old then bounced back from a first dropped shot in 45 holes at the eighth to open up a three-shot lead with a sensational eagle at the ninth, only for there to be a two-shot swing shortly after when he bogeyed the 10th and Cook birdied the 12th.
