Lee Westwood (FJ ICON style #52138, SciFlex glove) defeated fellow FJ player Robert Karlsson (FJ ICON MyJoys) on the fourth hole of a sudden death playoff to win the St. Jude Classic Sunday. Westwood and Karlsson went par-par-bogey until they returned to No. 18 once again. Westwood stuck his approach 6 feet from the pin on No. 18. Karlsson left his birdie putt from 43 feet away to extend the playoff about a foot short leaving Westwood to roll in his six-footer for the win. Robert Garrigus (FJ ICON BOA style #52210) came to the final hole in regulation with a three shot lead but struggled to the finish and forced the three-way playoff. He was eliminated following a bogey on the first extra hole. Westwood came in having played well, not missing a cut in his 10 starts on TOUR this year with four top 10s. He had gone 122 starts on the TOUR since winning the 1998 Zurich Classic of New Orleans. He finished with a 2-under 68 on Sunday and a 10-under 270 total for the week. Karlsson, who won his ninth European Tour victory at Qatar earlier this year, still is looking for his first PGA TOUR title. He shot a final round 69.

Congrats to LW, but you have to feel for Robert Garrigus...
I had thought that Lee had lost until the last hole. The playoff was exciting and watching Garrigus falter was heartwrenching. He really blew the last hole all by hinself, but I thought he might just pull it off. As to LW winning, that is why he is rated No.3 in the world. After finding out he was in the playoff, he never wavered and played with a coolness that rewarded him with the win.
glad for Westwood to finally win b/c he's played so well this year! but, tough to watch Garrigus not finish it
brutal finish...felt bad for Garrigus.
