American Kevin Tway holed three consecutive birdies in a play-off to win the Safeway Open and claim his first PGA Tour title.
The 30-year-old, son of 1986 US PGA Championship winner Bob Tway, beat Ryan Moore and Brandt Snedeker after all three finished on 14 under.
Asked about his father's reaction to his win: "I think he's probably crying to be honest.
"He's probably the biggest person I lean on. I can't wait to call him."
Snedeker, who had at one point held a five-shot lead during the final round, was eliminated on the first play-off hole after only managing par, while Moore matched Tway's birdie and both then birdied the next.
Tway sealed victory with a 10-foot putt on the next hole.
