Wiebe wins Champions Tour Hawaii event in playoff

Mark Wiebe made a par putt on the second playoff hole to defeat Corey Pavin at the Pacific Links Hawaii Championship.

It is his fifth career win on the Champions Tour and the first since Wiebe won the Senior British Open Championship - his first major title - when he defeated Bernhard Langer in a five-hole sudden-death playoff at Royal Birkdale.

It's also the first time in his career that Wiebe has won multiple titles in a season.

For Pavin, it was his sixth straight top-10 result. In the last four tournaments, he's finished either second or third. His final round 69 was his 11th straight round in the 60s. That is just two shy of the all-time Tour record for consecutive sub-70 scores.

Langer shot a final round 68 to finish in third place. A bogey on the 16th denied him the chance at a three-man playoff.

Esteban Toledo and John Cook were tied for fourth, two shots back.

Champions Tour rookie Vijay Singh finished in a tie for sixth after a final round 73. Singh was trying to become just the 17th player in Champions Tour history to win in his debut on the circuit.

Jim Rutledge of Victoria, B.C. shot a final round 69 to finish in a tie for 40th. Rod Spittle of Niagara Falls, Ont., stumbled to a 75 and finished in a tie for 55th.
