21 November 2016 02:08

Canada's Mackenzie Hughes secured his maiden PGA Tour title after triumphing in a five-man play-off at the RSM Classic at Sea Island.

Overnight leader Hughes posted a fourth-round 69 to finish level with Blayne Barber, Billy Horschel, Henrik Norlander and Camilo Villegas on 17 under par in Georgia.

Two extra holes were played on Sunday before bad light forced the contest to be suspended until Monday, with Horschel bowing out after missing his close-range par putt at the first play-off hole.

When play resumed on Monday, Hughes rolled in his par putt from just off the green at the third play-off hole - the par-three 17th - to claim the trophy.
