Gary Woodland beat Chez Reavie with a par on the first hole of a play-off on Sunday to win the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Woodland birdied three of the last four holes for a 7-under 64 to finish at 18-under 266 at TPC Scottsdale.

Reavie closed with a 66. After a bogey on the par-3 16th, the former Arizona State player chipped to 3 feet for birdie on the short par-4 17th and ran in a 20-footer on the par-4 18th to force the PGA Tour's fourth straight play-off.

In the play-off on the 18th, Woodland hit short of the green from the left fairway bunker and chipped to 2 feet to set up his third PGA Tour victory.

The crowd was estimated at 64,273 for a record week-long total of 719,179. On Saturday, an estimated 216,818 jammed the grounds, the biggest turnout in golf history.
