Kyle Stanley held his nerve to win the Quicken Loans National, after play-off against Charles Howell 111, at TPC Potomac.
Kyle and Charles both carded final rounds of -4 under 66, to top the Quicken Loans National leaderboard at the end of play with -7 under par totals.
Kyle won with a par at the first extra hole, the par four 18th, to win his second PGA Tour title, and a tearful Kyle had this say;
“There was some doubt there for a little bit. Yeah, I mean, it’s no fun.”
“You certainly question if you’ll get back, and have a moment like this. It makes this pretty special, for sure.”
“I wish I didn’t cry so much, to be honest, it just feels good to put the work in and see the rewards.”
“I think that’s where most of the emotion’s coming from.”
Because of a rib injury, Charles had not played golf for more than two months;
“Going into this week I was extremely rusty, I really can’t believe how well I played.”
Rickie Fowler, -5 under 65 today, and Martin Laird -3 under 67, finished tied in third place at -5 under par for the tournament.
Rickie managed to card a double bogey six in his last round, at the par four 14th.
