Matsuyama and Simpson in Phoenix Open playoff

Published : February 06, 2017

(Reuters) - Japan's Hideki Matsuyama and American Webb Simpson headed to a sudden-death playoff after finishing regulation tied at the Phoenix Open in Arizona on Sunday.


The duo finished the 72 regulation holes on 17-under-par 267, Matsuyama narrowly missing a birdie putt at the last to card a five-under 66 and Simpson closing with a best-of-the-day 64.


World number five Matsuyama is seeking his fifth victory in his last nine starts worldwide.
