Ben Martin earns first career win
NEWBURGH, Ind. -- Ben Martin two-putted for par on the first playoff hole Monday to win the Web.com Tour's United Leasing Championship.
It was Martin's first career win.
Martin drew the leadoff spot in a four-man playoff and played the 18th hole perfectly. A 3-wood into the fairway was followed by a 6-iron on the green and two putts for a par-4 that was good enough to beat Joe Affrunti, Ashley Hall and Billy Hurley.
The four were tied at 11-under 277 following the end of regulation play Sunday but a nearly four-hour rain delay didn't leave them enough daylight for the overtime session.
