James Hahn won the Northern Trust Open on Sunday in a three-man playoff with a 25-foot birdie putt on the third extra hole for his first PGA Tour title and a trip to the Masters.
In a wild finish, Hahn saved par on the 18th in regulation for a 2-under 69 that got him into a playoff with Dustin Johnson (69) and Paul Casey (68).
Casey was eliminated on the second extra hole — No. 10 — when Hahn and Johnson hit dangerous flop shots over the back bunker and converted birdie putts.
On the par-3 14th, Hahn made his birdie and then kept his head down as Johnson missed a 12-footer. Sergio García held the lead for most of the back nine before buckling. He walked to the 17th tee with a one-stroke lead and walked off the 18th green tied for fourth, one stroke out of the playoff, after his second straight bogey.

The 302-pound Williams, who played defensive tackle in college but is projected to be an offensive linenam, did nearly as well. Though he did not lift Sunday, Williams was clocked at 4.97 seconds in the 40, matching the fastest time turned in by an offensive lineman.
