J.B. Holmes wins Houston Open in three-way Playoff

(h/t @JBHolmesgolf)

Kentucky’s very own J.B. Holmes won a three-way playoff today at the Houston open today. Holmes parred the second extra hole to win. Holmes outlasted Johnson Wagner with aa tap-in par after Wagner missed a five-foot par putt. Before that Jordan Spieth was elimiated at the first extra hole.

Holmes came from six shots behind in the final round with a brilliant 64 to tie Wagner (69) and Spieth (70) at 16-under-par 272.

This makes the fourth PGA Tour victory for Holmes. Holmes had already previously qualified for the Masters, which starts later this week.

Way to go!

    He’s been close several times this year, great to see him get the victory.

    JB tapped in before Wagner missed the par putt. Facts do matter.
