Gary Woodland overcame Chez Reavie in a playoff to win the Waste Management Phoenix Open on Sunday, according to a report on the Irish Times.

Woodland and Reavie are considered as two of the lesser-known players but both found themselves battling for the title as the bigger-named players were out-performed.

It was a fascinating end as Woodland took the title with a par at the first extra hole as Reavie missed a clutch putt and bogeyed.

Woodland was pleased with the victory and revealed that it was a result of the hard work he has been putting in behind the scenes.

He said:

I put a lot of work in this off-season. Short game needed some adjustment. We’re just building. I’ve still got some work to do but I’m excited where we’re at.

The American is ranked 53rd in the PGA Tour rankings and was emotional following the win. Woodland is now hoping to continue to keep up this good form for the remainder of the year as he aims to secure more titles.

Woodland is very popular in America and his style of golf is pleasing to the eye. He has now taken his record of PGA Tour wins to three.
