The native of Hope, Arkansas attended Henderson State University and has a total of five professional wins.

Stroud forced the playoff by chipping in a 51-foot shot on the 18th hole.

Sweden’s Fredrik Jacobson (pronounced Yoc-kub-son) won his first PGA Tour event on Sunday, shooting a 4-under-par 66 in the Travelers Championship by one-stroke over John Rollins and Ryan Moore.

The 36-year-old Jacobson, who joined the tour eight years ago, had just one bogey in the tournament and finished at 20-under 260, two shots off the course record.

Jacobson was trying to become the first player since Lee Trevino in the 1974 Greater New Orleans Open to play 72 holes without a bogey.

He had 63 consecutive bogey-free holes before running into problems on the par-4 10th hole.

For the weekend, Jacobson, who turned pro in 1994, hit all 28 fairways over the weekend.

AKRON, OHIO — Bubba Watson, playing his first tournament round of golf at Firestone Country Club, shot a 6-under 64 for a two-stroke lead after Thursday’s opening round of the Bridgestone Invitational.

On the downside, Tiger Woods, who’s won seven times at Firestone, struggled all day and shot a 74, his worst round ever on the course and in the tournament. Woods finished round one in 74th place, in the 81-player field.

Watson needed only 22 putts to shoot his lowest first-round score of the year. He was able to practice on the course on Sunday and it allowed him to put up seven birdies and a bogey.

This was the first time that Watson, who won the Travelers Championship in June, which was his first PGA Tour win, has led a tournament after the first round.

Phil Mickelson, Kenny Perry, Adam Scott and Graeme McDowell were all at 66, as Chad Campbell, Sean O’Hair, Jeff Overton, Bo Van Pelt and Retief Goosen finished at 67.

Mickelson was paired with Rory McIlroy and they played well together. McIlroy shot a 68 and Mickelson, who played the first 10 holes at 1 over, birdied five of the last eight.

Pavin was eliminated on the first playoff hole.

Verplank shot a 6-under 64 in the final round, and Pavin and Watson each had a 66.

Justin Rose, coming off his first PGA Tour win earlier in the month at the Memorial Tournament, had a three-stroke lead entering the final round on Sunday, but had a big meltdown on the back nine holes finishing with a 75.

Ostrander, Ohio native Ben Curtis was in the mix until a double bogey on the 12th hole. Two bogeys down the stretch left him with a 3-over 73 and in an eight-way tie for 13th at 10 under par.
