Maggert beats Sutherland in playoff at Regions Tradition
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) Jeff Maggert won the Regions Tradition on Sunday for his first Champions Tour major title, beating Kevin Sutherland with a 3-foot par putt on the first hole of a playoff.
Sutherland two-putted for bogey to set up Maggert for the winning shot on the 18th hole at Shoal Creek.
Maggert closed with an even-par 72 to match Sutherland at 14-under 274. Sutherland had a 71.
Maggert's only previous Champions Tour win came in Mississippi last year in his first start on the 50-and-over tour. He won three times on the PGA Tour, the last in the 2006 St. Jude Classic.
Sutherland had his second runner-up finish of the year and remains stuck at one career win in 544 tournaments spread across the PGA, Champions and Web.com tours.
