Kevin Tway wins Safeway Open playoff for 1st PGA Tour title

Kevin Tway Wins First PGA Tour Event

Former Edmond North and Oklahoma State golfer Kevin Tway won his first PGA Tour event on Sunday, winning the Safeway Open in Napa, California, in a playoff against Ryan Moore and Brandt Snedeker.

Tway, the son of 1986 PGA Championship victor Bob, was in a three-way race for the title after going around in 71 in the final day and finishing on 14-under alongside compatriots Ryan Moore and Brandt Snedeker.

"I played well on the front nine, but lost it on the back", said Snedeker, who was seeking his 10th PGA Tour victory.

"I'm kind of at a loss for words".

Snedeker was the first to be eliminated with an opening par, while Moore and Tway swapped birdies for the first two playoff holes. "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". "I basically gave it away and it stinks right now, but I'll get over this and maybe it will help me down the road".

"I think he's probably crying to be honest", said Tway of his father, who had been watching on television.

"Obviously, we all kind of knew the wind was going to be insane warming up this morning", List said.

Phil Mickelson, tied for second entering the round, had a 74 to drop into a tie for 15th at 8 under.

Importantly for Baddeley the finish will afford him a start in the next full field event of the season at the Sanderson Farm Championship later in October and puts him in a very good position to regain a PGA Tour card from only limited status.

"It was a tough day, the wind kicked up the last 12 or 13 holes", Snedeker said. "He's pretty proud of me".
