Triplett's playoff eagle seals Hoag win
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) Kirk Triplett made a 12-foot eagle putt on the second hole of a playoff with Woody Austin on Sunday to win the Hoag Classic for his seventh PGA Tour Champions victory.
The 56-year-old Triplett forced the playoff with a similar left-to-right breaker for birdie on the par-5 18th, then matched Austin with a par on their first extra trip down the tree-lined hole.
"It was the exact same putt I had the first time through," Triplett said.
