Brian Stuard claimed the title in the rain-shortened Zurich Classic of New Orleans on Monday morning with a birdie on the second hole of a sudden-death playoff.
Stuard won with a 4-foot birdie putt on the 18th green of the second playoff hole, defeating Jamie Lovemark. Those two played the par-5 18th hole twice with each posting a par on the first playoff hole after third playoff participant, Byeong-Hun An, bowed out after making a bogey to start the playoff.
Stuard, Lovemark and An -- all winless on the PGA Tour -- were tied after the $7 million tournament had to be shortened to 54 holes after more than 15½ hours of rain delays on Thursday, Friday and Sunday.
Playing in his 120th career PGA Tour start, Stuard previously finished second twice at the OHL Classic in Mayakoba -- an event played in Mexico.
With the win, he earned $1.26 million and secured a spot in the Wells Fargo Championship next week, The Players Championship in two weeks and the 2017 Masters.
