Stewart wins Phila. PGA tourney in playoff
Posted: Wednesday, September 4, 2013, 3:01 AMBilly Stewart sank a 12-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole Tuesday to win the Drexel Morgan & Co. Classic and collect one of the largest first-prize checks - $75,000 - of any PGA of America section in the country.
Stewart, 29, an assistant pro at Golf Galaxy in Devon, survived a four-man playoff on the 18th hole at Sunnybrook Golf Club in Plymouth Meeting.
He carded a 4-under-par 68 during the 18-hole event, which had been rescheduled after its original May 29 date was rained out.
Stewart was joined at 4 under by Bill Sautter of Philadelphia Cricket Club, Stu Ingraham of M-Golf and Ryan Breidegam of Brookside.
Stewart, who started his round on the 10th hole, had four birdies and two bogeys on his first nine but settled down to a bogey-free 2-under score on his second nine. Stewart, who lost in a playoff at the Philadelphia Open in July, picked up his biggest victory in the Philadelphia Section.
Sautter, the only contestant in the playoff who played in the afternoon, appeared ready to snatch the huge first-prize check when he stood at 7 under par with two holes to play. But the veteran carded a double bogey at the par-3 eighth hole - his 17th of the round - and a bogey at the par-4 ninth to fall back into a tie.
