Scott Dunlap wins Boeing Classic in playoff

Scott Dunlap shot a final-round 68 and birdied the first playoff hole to defeat veteran Mark Brooks and win the $2 million Boeing Classic at TPC at Snoqualmie Ridge Sunday. Dunlap, who tied with Brooks at 16-under-par 200 after 54 holes, earned $300,000 while Brooks collected $176,000.

The 51-year-old Dunlap, who fired a 63 in the second round, set up his winning putt on the par-5 18th with an outstanding approach to the right front of the pin. His ball landed four feet past the pin, and he tapped in for his first Champions Tour victory, and his first win of any kind since the 2008 Panama Movistar Championship on the tour. Brooks barely missed draining a 30-foot putt on his fourth shot of the playoff.

It was the fifth playoff in the 10-year-history of the Boeing-sponsored tournament at TPC at Snoqualmie Ridge.

Gene Sauers finished two strokes back at 14-under and Tom Pernice Jr. was another stroke back at -13.

Seattle native Fred Couples shot a final-round 66 to finish at eight-under 208 after rounds of 71-71 Friday and Saturday. Couples earned $34,000.

First-round leader Mark Goodes (64) had a final round of 70 to finish seven-under 209, worth $27,200.
