Jason Day beats LPGA's Stacy Lewis to win 3-Tour Challenge
HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) - Jason Day beat Stacy Lewis with birdie on the second hole of a playoff to lift the PGA Tour past the LPGA Tour on Tuesday in the Wendy's 3-Tour Challenge.
Day's drive stopped on a cart path, and the Australian hit a 95-yard approach to 5 feet to set up the winning birdie. Lewis missed an 8-foot birdie putt.
After the teams finished at 19 under in regulation at Rio Secco Golf Club, Nick Watney and Cristie Kerr - coming off a victory Sunday in Mexico in the Lorena Ochoa Invitational - both parred the par-4 18th hole to force a second extra hole.
Watney holed a 45-foot birdie putt on the final hole in regulation to force the playoff.
Davis Love III also played for the PGA Tour, and Natalie Gulbis completed the LPGA Tour lineup.
The Champions Tour trio of Bernhard Langer, Fred Funk and Tom Lehman finished six strokes back.
Only the two best scores on a hole from the three-player teams counted in the total.
