What felt like the longest week on the PGA Tour this year was even longer when Nick Taylor birdied the 72nd hole to tie Charley Hoffman and force a playoff Sunday at the WM Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale.

After both making birdie on the first playoff hole, Taylor converted another birdie from 12 feet on the second playoff hole to pick up his fourth PGA Tour victory in his 260th start. He picked up $1.584 million for his efforts, from the total purse of $8.8 million.

Yes, that means that Taylor birdied the 18th hole three consecutive times—from inside 10 feet, 15 feet and 12 feet—to break Hoffman's heart. He shot 60-70-68-75 for a 21-under-par 263 total. Birdies on Nos. 15, 16 and 18 in regulation closed the gap on Hoffman quickly as Hoffman was the comfortable leader in the clubhouse at the time.

"To hit three pretty good ones and birdie it three times is amazing," Taylor said.

Hoffman was looking for his fifth PGA Tour title and first since the 2016 Valero Texas Open. He was not in contention after the first 36 holes, but shot consecutive 64s in the last two holes to give himself a chance. He took home $959,200 for the runner-up finish.

"Putting myself in contention coming down the stretch, I didn't really falter," Hoffman said, "so I've got to give Nick credit."

The tournament was plagued by weather all week and was lucky to finish on Sunday, even though, ultimately, it went up against the Super Bowl. There was terrible weather, including hail, during Wednesday's pro-am and then numerous delays over the first three days. On Saturday, tournament officials closed the gates to control overcrowding and then halted alcohol sales in the afternoon because of numerous rowdy fans.

Here is the prize money breakdown for every player who makde the cut this week in Scottsdale.
