The son of eight-time PGA Tour victor Bob Tway, the 30-year-old former Oklahoma State player beat Ryan Moore on the par-4 10th after Brandt Snedeker dropped out on their first extra trip down the par-5 18th.

Baddeley shot a closing three-under 69 to finish one shot outside an all-American playoff involving overnight leader Brandt Snedeker (74), Ryan Moore (67) and Tway (71) who were tied at 14 under.

Tway rolled in a 10-foot birdie putt at the third hole of sudden death to win the first event of the U.S. tour's 2018-19 season over Ryan Moore at Silverado Resort in Napa, California.

After Tway and Moore twice birdied the 18th in the playoff, they continued at the par-four 10th, where Tway finally prevailed just before sunset.

Martin Laird was the highest placed Briton but fell 31 places to joint 46th with a round of 76, including a double bogey on the par-3 second.

Llamas said that some people might take the first lady's statement to mean that she doesn't actually support women. President Trump has been accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct and assault in the past.

Bob Tway won eight times on the PGA Tour, including the 1986 PGA Championship. Even for the round through 15 holes after two birdies and two bogeys, he roared home with a three-foot birdie at the par five 16th and a seven-footer at 17. "I'm kind of at a loss for words right now". "I played a really good front nine in tough conditions, made the turn and actually drove the ball really well, just hit some really, really poor iron shots".

"I was just trying to put the ball in the fairway, which was very hard", Tway said.

"I'm going to look at that one in a few years and know I gave that one away", Snedeker said.

Luke List (final-round 67), Troy Merritt (68), Sam Ryder (69), Australia's Aaron Baddeley (69) and Sungjae Im (71) tied for fourth at 13 under.
