Kevin Kisner makes outrageous chip-in to force play-off

Kevin Kisner makes outrageous chip-in to force play-off

The win comes with a two-season exemption for both players, with Blixt picking up his third PGA Tour win to Smith's first.

It took a little longer than expected, but Cameron Smith and Jonas Blixt eventually made it to where they expected to be all weekend.

They halved the third extra hole with pars before Smith stuck his approach to inside three feet at the par-five 18th and closed the book on the tour's first team event in 36 years.

"It was tough, but we fought well on the back nine", Smith said.

Former world number one Jordan Spieth and Ryan Palmer finished fourth at 22 under.

In one week, albeit one long week, the Zurich Classic went from yet just another stroke play event on the PGA Tour that happens to be a couple of Bubba Watson tee shots away from some seriously world-class dining to an event that truly stands out. It was barely light enough to play when they did make it back onto the course, but even still, that wasn't enough to stop Kevin Kisner hitting this fantastic shot on his 72nd hole.

As much fun as Blixt and Smith seem to be having, the pressure could mount a bit as they try to protect their final-round lead.

Both teams were 27 under through regulation after Blixt and Smith carried a four-shot advantage into the final round.

Smith, who had earlier missed a birdie putt to win on the opening playoff hole, made no mistake at the second opportunity to seal a win over Kevin Kisner and Scott Brown at the TPC Louisiana in New Orleans.

"Kudos to you", Blixt said in turning to his partner, who is seeking a first PGA Tour title. Each golfer takes home $1.02 million and 400 FedEXCup points.

"I can't even talk", Smith told a television reporter on the green, his eyes brimming with tears. "For the Tour to unanimously decide that was the fair thing to do, puts me in a very different situation, being able to play the Players (Championship) and all the remaining events I would like to play". Seeing how this guy plays golf, the sky is the limit for him. It featured two-man teams playing two better ball rounds and two alternate shot rounds.

It was Kisner's turn to miss a birdie putt to win on the second hole of sudden death, again on the 18th.
