Strong finish keeps Snedeker in Safeway Open lead

The 30-year-old Tway, whose father Bob won the 1986 PGA Championship, sank a nine-foot birdie putt on the third playoff hole to turn back Ryan Moore and claim his first victory PGA Tour victory in the Safeway Open on the North Course at Silverado Resort and Spa (https://www.silveradoresort.com) in Napa. 10-12, Snedeker appeared to steady the ship with a 10-foot birdie on the 16th hole that put him one ahead of Moore and, at the time, three ahead of Tway with just two holes to go.

Luke List eagled the 18th for a 67 to finish a stroke out of the playoff with Troy Merritt (68), Sam Ryder (69), Aaron Baddeley (69) and Sungjae Im (71).

Tway is the son of former OSU and PGA golfer Bob Tway.

"I was just trying to put the ball in the fairway, which was very hard", Tway said. "It sucks right now, but I'm playing next week".

Moore also birdied the first two playoff holes to stay alive, but he missed his birdie attempt at No. 10 before Tway sank the victor. "On a day like today it's not about necessarily how you're swinging, it's about how you just get the ball in the hole and somehow I managed to do that".
