"Just hang in there and what do you know?"

"Two or three holes left I really didn't think there was much of a shot".

Smith previously had one victory to his credit on the PGA Tour, the 2018 Zurich Classic of New Orleans, a team event with Jonas Blixt. Smith as well as other Aussie Marc Leishman led a philanthropic contribution initiative based upon birdies as well as eagles today as well as urged various other gamers to sign up with; Smith's uncle is just one of hundreds of Australians straight influenced by the fires. Instead, it sailed over the green, he chipped some 15 feet by the hole and missed his par putt.

After Steele failed to get up and down for par, Smith was able to two-putt for victory - ensuring his first solo win and earning the US$1,188,000 cheque.

The 26-year-old showed his class as he closed for a final-round two-under 68 with an up-and-down from the greenside bunker, capped by a clutch eight-foot putt. "No one was playing good golf today, it seemed like", Smith said after a 68.

"I didn't feel like I played particularly well, but I did the putts that I had to do", he said.

The victory assures Smith a spot in the Masters.

"Every one of them, every birdie putt I had, just meant that little bit more".

It also reduces the number of times a player can be designated from four to three from this year and back to two starting in 2022. Free agent players will now have unrestricted status a year earlier than under the prior agreement.

Steele, so used to having a blast of wind in his face on that hole, tried to get a shot to the back tier toward the pin, because anything less would spin back to the lower tier.

"I played the hole six times this week and it's been blowing pretty hard every day", he said. "I'm just a California kid who doesn't like rain so, I was just trying to grind and I worked as hard as I could and it just wasn't good enough". "I'm just a California kid who doesn't like playing in the rain".

A wet and grey final round came to life in the last hour, which is about how long it took to play the last two holes.

Simpson's wedge skipped off the soaked green and settled 15 feet behind the hole. From a fairway bunker, Palmer went with fairway metal and sent it soaring so far to the right that it bounced off the metal railing atop a monster video board, beyond the corporate tent and vanished, presumably in a backyard.

The native of Idyllwild in the Southern California mountains, who attended UC Riverside, finished with a 71 and then hit his approach shot over the green to make a bogey in the playoff.

After a 15-minute wait before teeing off at 18 so excess water could be removed from the green, Steele drove the ball into the middle of the fairway. It bounced off the roof of the tents left of the green and stopped near the ropes lining the 10th fairway. After a free drop, he hit wedge off the muddy lie to 30 feet, taking a reasonable birdie putt out of the equation. During this time, Howell has accumulated $2.8 million in earnings in the event, more than any player in the tournament's history.

Smith holed his 8-footer for birdie for the second playoff in two weeks.

Webb Simpson (67) finished third with 10 points less, while the North American Graeme McDowell finished 64th with 19 points ahead of the Americans Ryan Palmer (68) and Kevin Kisner (69) in fourth place.
