Kevin Sutherland won the 2019 Rapiscan Systems Classic after draining a 18-foot birdie on the seventh overtime hole, edging Scott Parel for the senior circuit title in Mississippi.
Tied at 7-under par, Sutherland and Parel were forced to return to the Fallen Oak golf course on Monday after play was suspended due to darkness following five sudden-death holes on Sunday.
“It’s all good now,” Sutherland said, who missed a two-foot putt during Sunday’s OT that could have ended it.
“Last night, I didn’t sleep well. I was constantly thinking about that putt I missed. I was surprised I missed it. Hey, it was not an easy putt and it didn’t go my way. But I got a second chance. I’m ecstatic. I’m sorry everyone had to come back today.”
Sutherland earned $240,000 for his second career PGA Tour Champions victory.
