It took six extra holes – the longest playoff in Sony Open in Hawaii history – but Patton Kizzire downed James Hahn for the win to become the first player on the US PGA Tour in the 2017/2018 season to record two wins.
Almost two months to the day since he won the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, Kizzire captured the Sony Open with a two-putt par on the par-3 17th hole. “It wasn’t necessarily pretty but it was nice to come out on top,” Kizzire said.
Although Kizzire stumbled on the greens a bit today (-.717 strokes gained/putting) he still had a good week putting, with a 1.711 strokes gained mark with his Scotty Cameron by Titleist GoLo Tour putter. Kizzire also used a split set of Titleist’s relatively new 718 line of irons. Kizzire had a 718 T-MB 4-iron, a pair of 718 CB irons for his 5 and 6-irons and the rest of his iron set the 718 MB along with a Titleist Vokey SM7 pitching wedge.
