Charles Howell III ended an 11-year wait for a PGA Tour win by claiming victory at the second play-off hole of the RSM Classic at Sea Island, Georgia.
The 39-year-old holed a 20-foot birdie putt on the 18th to edge out fellow American Patrick Rodgers.
After two rounds, Rodgers was 12 shots off the lead but shot an eight-under-par 62 to join Howell (67) on 19 under.
Compatriot Webb Simpson was a shot further back, while Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell finished tied for 11th.
Rodgers' strong finish, which included an 85-foot birdie putt at the 12th, saw the 26-year-old set a final 36-hole record for the PGA Tour with an aggregate of 123.
