Austin claims first title in six years with playoff win

(Reuters) - Woody Austin birdied the first extra hole in a three-way playoff with Daniel Summerhays and Cameron Beckman to win the Sanderson Farms Championship at Annandale Golf Club in Madison, Mississippi on Sunday. Austin, who had played just three PGA Tour events this season missing the cut in all three, held his nerve on a hot and humid day, rolling in a six-foot putt on the first playoff hole to earn the 49-year-old his first Tour win since 2007.

(Reuters) - Nicholas Thompson carded a second consecutive 65 to push into a tie for the lead after the third round of the Sanderson Farms Championship at Annandale Golf Club on Saturday, setting up a potential rare family double. The 30-year-old's seven-under round left him tied with in-form Daniel Summerhays and two shots clear of the chasing pack, while his teenage sister Lexi was tied third and three shots off the lead after three rounds at the LPGA tour's Marathon Classic.

American Daniel Summerhays shot a nine-under-par 63 to seize the lead at the PGA Tour's Sanderson Farms Championship before the first round was suspended because of poor weather. Summerhays was in position to win his first PGA Tour title last week. But he ended up squandering a third round lead and finished just one shot back of the eventual winner Jordan Spieth. Summerhays rolled in seven birdies and an eagle Thursday to reach the clubhouse with the lead before heavy rain and lightning slammed into the Annandale Golf club course. The first round will resume Friday morning.
