The 30-year-old Tway, whose father Bob won the 1986 PGA Championship, sank a nine-foot birdie putt on the third playoff hole to turn back Ryan Moore and claim his first victory PGA Tour victory in the Safeway Open on the North Course at Silverado Resort and Spa (https://www.silveradoresort.com) in Napa.

Needing to birdie the par-5 18th to win, Snedeker instead found a fairway bunker off the tee, pushed his second shot into the rough and couldn't get closer than 48 feet with his approach.

Snedeker could only manage par on the first playoff hole, the 18th, while Moore and Tway both hit birdies on the first two playoff holes.

Moore also birdied the first two playoff holes to stay alive, but he missed his birdie attempt at No. 10 before Tway sank the victor. Moore closed with a 67, and Snedeker, who opened the day with a three-shot lead, shot a 74.

Tway's father, Bob Tway, also secured his first victory in a playoff 32 years ago at Torrey Pines, making them the 10th father and son Tour winners.

At 18, his putt from off the green left him a tap-in for his fifth birdie of the day and a 16-under total of 200.

"I'm kind of at a loss for words". "I played 63 holes of really damn good golf and nine holes I'd like to have back".

"It's done, and I didn't do it", he said.

Snedeker said he'd remember the event as one he "gave away". The five-time major victor, who had been pleasantly surprised by his first two rounds after a tough 0-2 performance at the Ryder Cup in France last week, finished with three bogeys and three birdies, picking up a stroke at the 16th but unable to take advantage of the more favorable wind at 17 and 18.

Luke List (final-round 67), Troy Merritt (68), Sam Ryder (69), Australia's Aaron Baddeley (69) and Sungjae Im (71) tied for fourth at 13 under.
