Waste Management Phoenix Open R4 - Webb Simpson beat fellow American Tony Finau in a one-hole playoff to win the 2020 Phoenix Open
(Niall Carson/PA Wire)

Webb Simpson beat fellow American Tony Finau in a one-hole playoff to win the 2020 Phoenix Open.

The 34-year-old almost missed his chance at the title when he ended up in the water off a wayward drive on the 15th.

However he rallied with back-to-back birdies on the final two holes of regulation to force the playoff.


Finau had an opportunity to win the tournament outright, but his eight-foot birdie putt attempt on the 18th just slid right.

Simpson then cemented his victory with a 10-foot birdie putt on the extra hole.

Scotsman Russell Knox was the best of the British contingent, finishing 10-under to tie for 16th.
