Wilson Defeats Dufner in Playoff for 2nd PGA Tour Win in 2011

Mark Wilson birdied the second playoff hole at the Phoenix Open in Arizona to defeat Jason Dufner for his second U.S. PGA Tour win this season.

It’s Wilson’s fourth career title.

Wilson, who also won the Sony Open in Hawaii last month, sank a putt from nine feet on the 10th hole at the TPC Scottsdale course to secure his latest victory. Dufner parred the hole when his long birdie putt came up short. Both players finished four rounds at 18-under par.

“I’m ecstatic,” Wilson said in a televised interview on the Golf Channel. “It’s crazy. I’m just riding the train as long as I can. This is the best golf I’ve played in my life.”

Players were forced to return to the course this morning to finish the tournament after cold temperatures and frost caused delays throughout the event.

Wilson earned $1.1 million. His other wins came at the 2009 Mayakoba Golf Classic in Mexico and 2007 Honda Classic in Florida. Scotland’s Martin Laird and Fiji’s Vijay Singh tied for second at 16-under. Laird shot a final-round of 6-under 65, one better than Singh’s last-round score.

Tiger Woods didn’t play in the event. The world’s No. 3-ranked golfer will next compete in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic beginning Feb. 10 at the Emirates Golf Club in Dubai.
