Hunter Mahan wins the Travelers Championship in a playoff

First PGA Tour victory for Hunter Mahan this Sunday after a playoff putt to win the Travelers Championship.

Hunter Mahan wins the Travelers Championship in a playoff In 2006 Hunter Mahan finished the Travelers Championship second, but this year he finally claimed the trophy. Mahan and Jay Williamson have been playing the cat-and-mouse game the entire final day of the Travelers, and it was meant to end in a playoff. A 2-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole did the job and Mahan beat 40-year-old Williamson.

 Hunter Mahan made a 7-foot birdie putt on 18 to force the playoff, then hit his 134-yard approach on the first playoff hole. Jay Williamson, who was atop of the leaderboard entering the final round, was just seven feet away after a 169-yard approach, but missed the putt.

 Although Jay Williamson was hoping to earn back his U.S. PGA Tour card with a win, second-place finish will be enough to earn Williamson a trip to the Buick Open, next week in Michigan.

Final top five at the 2007 Travelers Championship leaderboard:

1 Hunter Mahan -15
2 Jay Williamson -15
3 Nick O'Hern -11
4 Vijay Singh -10
5 Fred Funk -9
