Ben Martin wins in playoff on Web.com Tour's United Leasing Championship

NEWBURGH, Ind. — Ben Martin two-putted for par on the first playoff hole Monday to win the Web.com Tour's United Leasing Championship.

It was Martin's first career win.

Martin drew the leadoff spot in a four-man playoff and played the 18th hole perfectly. A 3-wood into the fairway was followed by a 6-iron on the green and two putts for a par-4 that was good enough to beat Joe Affrunti, Ashley Hall and Billy Hurley.

The four were tied at 11-under 277 following the end of regulation play Sunday but a nearly four-hour rain delay didn't leave them enough daylight for the overtime session.

"I woke up at 5:30 this morning and was ready to go," said Martin, who had a 5-under 67 Sunday. "I knew they were calling for rain, but we're used to playing this waiting game."

The four had to wait a little longer when morning rains pushed the scheduled start of the playoff back an hour and 20 minutes as maintenance crews worked to make the 18th hole playable at Victoria National Golf Club, which had more than nine inches of rain fall during the week.

"When I drew a number and saw it was number one I was pretty pleased," said Martin, who won $108,000 and moved to No. 4 on the money list.

"It's such a tough drive because right is in the water and left is in the rough or the bunker. I was happy to get it out of the way and that probably did put a little pressure on them."
