  • CareerBuilder Challenge- Final Round

Rahm jumped past Jordan Spieth in the ranking, leaving only Dustin Johnson ahead.

Rahm now has two PGA Tour victories after capturing last season's Farmers Insurance Open, where he will next week try to defend his title.

"So far, I've only lost against Superman this year", Rahm said.

"If you told me that on three of those drives (on the par 5s) I would be in the dead center of the fairway and long, I would have not (believed that I would've won)", said Rahm, who ranked T-7 on Tour in par-5 scoring last season and was T-20 entering this week.

"To follow-up a shot that ended up one foot away, had a makeable birdie putt every time, it's fantastic that he kept up and one of us had to do it and either one of us would have been a well-deserving champion".

The Waterford man shot a final round, bogey-free 70 to finish on 17 under, five shots behind the playoff mark of 22 under. Landry had missed late opportunities from 14 and nine feet before he dropped the 11 footer that forced the playoff.

"I'll probably just take playing in a final group on Sunday, I've never done that on the PGA Tour", Piller said after his final round. "I had a good feeling going into today".

Rahm wanted to putt first. "I just trusted myself ... and it went in".

"I'm sure glad Andrew didn't make the last putt, because I didn't want to come back tomorrow", Rahm said. He opened with a triple bogey and had six bogeys - four in a row to start his second nine - and only one birdie. I only have two wins.

Rahm missed a chance to win on the first extra trip down the 18th when his 9-foot birdie try slid left, and on the second, Landry's 8-footer to end it went by to the right.

Landry shot a 68 that included one bogey on the par-three sixth hole, his only bogey during an otherwise near-flawless tournament.

"A little bit of a survival day", Rahm said.

Rahm parred the four par 5s on Sunday, with the Pete Dye-designed layout playing tougher with many pin positions on the edges of greens, after going 13 under on 12 par 5s in the first three rounds with an eagle and 11 birdies.

"The course is firming up", Rahm said. I was just scared that Andrew was going to take the lead hand and make the putt.

KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) - Jerry Kelly turned a one-shot deficit into a one-shot victory with an 18-foot birdie putt on the final hole for a 6-under 66 to win the Mitsubishi Electric Championship on Saturday in the PGA Tour Champions opener. "Kapalua wasn't the best ball-striking week of my life, but I was able to scramble really well and keep calm and have a good score".

The playoff holes followed a familiar pattern: Each hit good tee shots; each hit respectable shots into the green with makable birdie putts; each missed.
