49-year-old Woody Austin emerged from a three-way play-off to claim the Sanderson Farms Championship on the PGA Tour.

Austin carded a final round of 67 to move to 20-under par and join Daniel Summerhays and Cameron Beckman in a three-man tie for the lead.

A sudden death play-off ensued between the trio at Annandale in Mississippi, but it did not last long as Austin birdied the first extra hole to claim the title.

It was just as well, as the bad weather that had blighted the tournament all week was forecast to return soon after the round was completed.

Beckman birded the final hole to get into the play-off, while Summerhays picked up shots on his last two as he looked to go one better than last week.

Summerhays was in the final group at the John Deere Classic seven days ago but bogeyed the 72nd hole to miss out on a play-off - but despite making it this time around he suffered another near miss and is still looking for his first PGA Tour title.

For Austin, it marks a fourth career victory and his first since back in 2007 as he collected 300 points on the FedEx Cup.

Austin said: "It's been a long road and a long time. This is only my fourth event, so I'm really ecstatic. Now I've got a job again.

"It's a golf course that I love. Look at the stats, I've had four or five top 10s here. And the golf course was different in that it was drier than it has been.

"Guys weren't throwing darts at the greens from the rough and anywhere on the course. You have to hit good shots and iron play is my strength and it was there this week."
