ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. (AP) Robert Streb made the last of his 10 birdies on the second extra hole, winning a three-way playoff in the McGladrey Classic on Sunday for his first PGA Tour victory.

Streb rallied from a five-shot deficit in the final round with a 7-under 63. He waited 90 minutes to see if anyone could catch him, and then outlasted Will MacKenzie and Brendon de Jonge in the playoff at Sea Island.

The victory sends Streb to the Masters in April. The 27-year-old from Oklahoma has never played in a major.

Streb never felt more pressure than over his final two putts. On the first playoff hole at No. 18, Streb ran his 35-foot birdie putt about 4 feet by the hole and had to make that one to stay alive. MacKenzie was eliminated with a bogey from the bunker.

De Jonge hit safely on the green at the par-3 17th, and Streb followed with an 8-iron that covered the flag and plopped down about 4 feet behind the cup.

Streb was the first to finish at 14-under 266, and it held up for the second playoff in the McGladrey Classic. De Jonge closed with a 65, and MacKenzie had a 68.

BLUE BAY LPGA

HAINAN ISLAND, China (AP) - South Africa's Lee-Anne Pace had a four-stroke lead in the Blue Bay LPGA when final-round play was suspended because of darkness.

Pace had five holes left when the round was stopped at 6:15 p.m. Rain delayed play for nearly four hours with the leaders halfway through the round, leading to a Monday finish in the tournament cut from 72 to 54 holes after play was washed out Friday.

Tied with American Jessica Korda at 11 under entering the round, the 33-year-old Pace made three front-nine birdies before the delay and holed a 15-foot birdie putt on the par-4 12th.

Pace is seeking her first LPGA Tour title and second victory in eight days after winning a playoff last Sunday in the Ladies European Tour's South African Women's Open. She's also in position for her third victory in China after winning the LET's Sanya Ladies Open in 2010 and 2013.

Michelle Wie was second, also with five holes left.

AT&T CHAMPIONSHIP

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Michael Allen shot a 6-under 66 for a two-stroke victory Sunday in the Champions Tour's AT&T Championship, and Bernhard Langer wrapped up the Charles Schwab Cup title.

Allen birdied three of the final four holes on TPC San Antonio's AT&T Canyons Course. He finished at 15-under 201 for his second victory of the season and seventh overall on the 50-and-over tour. He won the Allianz Championship in Boca Raton, Florida, in February.

Marco Dawson was second after a 71. He bogeyed Nos. 16 and 18.

Langer closed with a 69 to tie for sixth at 10 under. He has a tour-high five victories - two of them majors - and leads the money list.

The top 30 on the money list qualified for the season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championship next week in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Esteban Toledo, 31st on the money list entering the week, birdied the final three holes for a 68 to tie for 12th at 8 under and move to 27th. He bumped Mark Calcavecchia, 30th entering the week, from the Schwab field. Calcavecchia tied for 72nd in the 81-player field at 4 over.

PERTH INTERNATIONAL

PERTH, Australia (AP) - Denmark's Thorbjorn Olesen won the Perth International, closing with a 1-under 71 for a three-stroke victory over France's Victor Dubuisson.

Olesen finished at 17-under 271 at Lake Karrinyup for his second European Tour title.

Dubuisson had a 66.
