Sutton wins play-off


Hal Sutton made the most of a mistake by US PGA Champion Vijay Singh to win the $4 million Tour Championship on the first play-off hole in Atlanta yesterday.

In the first play-off in four years at this event, Singh hit his tee shot at the East Lake Golf Club's par-three, 232-yard 18th to within 20 feet of the cup. But Sutton hit a spectacular tee shot to just six feet.

Singh left his birdie try five feet short and settled for par before Sutton made his birdie putt worth a cool $720,000.
