The Waste Management Phoenix Open is known mostly for the 16th hole, a short par 3 completely surround by stands. It's the one place on The TOUR you will hear fans boo and possibly even litter the course if they are displeased. This year however, the event was made popular by a few frost delays. This prompted The TOUR to push the event back to a Monday finish.
Wilson proved he could handle the pressure. Tied for the lead on the 72nd hole, his tee shot found the bunker on the left side of the fairway. He was able to hit a good shot and two putt for par, forcing the playoff. The first playoff hole (played on the 18th), Wilson found the bunker again, this time on the right side of the fairway. He found the green and was able to two putt, while Dufner couldn't sink his putt for the win.
The playoff then moved on to the 10th hole, a 403 yard par 4. Dufner made par but Wilson made sure par was not good enough as he sank his 9 foot birdie putt for the win. The putt put Wilson over the $2,000,000 mark for the first time in his career and gave him the lead in the FedEx Cup race.
Although he didn't win, Tommy "two glove" Gainey made a name for himself this week. Earning his nickname by wearing a glove on each hand, Gainey held the lead at points throughout the event but struggled during the final round. Mostly notably on the 71st hole when his tee shot hit a hazard marker and kicked into the water. After his drop, Gainey's chip came up short and rolled into the water again. He eventually made a triple bogey (7) on the hole and finished tied for 8th.
