Screen Shot 2017-05-01 at 10.32.28 AMCameron Smith and Jonas Blixt had to endure a lengthy weather delay on Sunday and get back to work early on Monday, but it was worth the wait.

Smith and Blixt won the Zurich Classic of New Orleans when they beat Kevin Kisner and Scott Brown on the fourth hole of their sudden-death playoff on Monday at TPC Louisiana. Smith made a short birdie putt on the par-5 18th to end the playoff. The teams pushed on the first three playoff holes, making pars on the 18th twice and the par-3 9th once.

Screen Shot 2017-05-01 at 10.33.03 AMThe teams advanced to a playoff thanks to Kisner’s 72nd-hole heroics with daylight fading on Sunday evening. After storms suspended final-round play for more than six hours, Blixt and Smith took a one-stroke lead over Kisner and Brown when Blixt birdied the 17th hole in the best ball format. (The team event format was alternate shot in Rounds 1 and 3 and best ball in Rounds 2 and 4, including the playoff.) It looked all but over on the par-5 18th when Smith nestled his eagle chip close to the cup, ensuring a tap-in birdie. Kisner and Brown’s only chance was to make eagle and force a playoff, and that’s what Kisner did from 31 yards off the green.
