Jeff Maggert has won his first tournament in more than four years at the Charles Schwab Cup Championship and handed Scott McCarron the Schwab Cup and its $1 million bonus in the process.

It came down to Maggert and Retief Goosen on the third playoff hole at the 17th with McCarron waiting in the clubhouse.

Maggert was 123 yards away, his shot landed just short of the pin, bounced and fell into the cup for eagle.


”I’ve seen it happen. I never, ever thought it would happen to me,” Maggert said about his game-winner. ”I was just trying to get it close. Lo and behold, it goes in the hole.”

McCarron had led the points list since April but hadn’t made much of an impact in the three postseason events and finished tied for 27th on Sunday. He depended on Maggert winning to win the Cup and thought it was all over when Goosen had a 4-foot birdie putt to win on the first playoff hole.

”For Goose to have a chance and miss a short putt, for Jeff Maggert – my favorite player on the PGA Tour Champions… you can’t write that,” McCarron said. ”I was very fortunate to have a good stretch early in the year. I didn’t play great in the playoffs, but it was good enough.”

”He owes me some red wine or something,” Maggert said with a grin.
