LAS VEGAS -- Patrick Cantlay won the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in a playoff Sunday for the first victory in a PGA Tour career mostly derailed by a severe back injury.
Cantlay bogeyed the final two holes of regulation for a 5-under 67 to get in at 9-under 275 at windy TPC Summerlin.
Cejka birdied the 18th with an 18-footer for 63 more than two hours before Cantlay, and Whee, who bogeyed 18 for a 66, finished the round. The three played the 456-yard, par-4 closing hole twice in the playoff, matching bogeys the first time.
Cantlay broke through to win after a remarkable return from the back problems last season. Out of golf since 2013, he didn't miss a cut and made it to the Tour Championship while playing only 12 events. Part of that was due to an ankle injury that slowed him for two months.
Cantlay earned $1,224,000, a two-year PGA Tour exemption and a spot in the Masters.
Spaun played the final four holes in 5 over for a 74. He bogeyed the 15th and closed with two double-bogeys to drop into a tie for 10th at 6 under.
