Duke Wins First PGA Tour Title

American Ken Duke claimed his first PGA Tour career victory at the ripe old age of 44, after a dramatic play-off win at the Travelers Championship.

Duke outdid fellow compatriot Chris Stroud with a birdie at the second play-off hole after the two both finished on 12 under.

Stroud was seeking a first title also, and was looking good for the win when he chipped in from behind the 18th green to force a play-off.

Meanwhile Justin Rose’s game ended with him on six under in tied 13th. Not a bad game for the US Open Champion.

Bubba Watson had challenged the leading two but eventually dropped out of contention with a triple bogey at the 16th, finishing on 10 under. That left Duke and Stroud in the play-off, with Duke missing a tough birdie on the first play-off hole, before making that vital putt on the next.
