The Monday Recap: Better late than never

Harrison Frazar waited a long time to finally grab a PGA Tour win.

The veteran pro made his 355th start on the premier golf circuit count, as he defeated Swede Robert Karlsson in a playoff to secure his first PGA Tour title.

The FedEx St. Jude Classic gave viewers a dramatic finish as Frazar lost his one-shot lead on the 18th hole.

Frazar and Karlsson needed two sudden death playoff holes to settle the tournament, where Frazar won with a par.

Karlsson had chipped past the hole, only to misfire on his par bid, thus allowing Frazar to hoist his first trophy on the PGA Tour.

And with Frazar's playoff victory comes this neat, little tidbit from PGA Tour events:

The past nine tournaments, dating back to the Masters, have either been decided by one shot or a playoff.

Yup, that's nine straight PGA Tour events going right down to the wire.

If it becomes 10 consecutive this week, then golf fans should plan on possibly turning on their televisions for an 18-hole playoff on Monday.


The United States Open, which begins Thursday, conducts 18-hole playoffs to decide its champs, unlike most events that use a sudden-death format.
