Abraham Ancer won his first PGA Tour title at the WGC-FedEx St Jude Invitational in Memphis, after beating Hideki Matsuyama and Sam Burns in a playoff.
The man from Mexico has knocked on the door on many occasions in 2021, finishing in the top-five on five different occasions including a runner-up finish at the Wells Fargo Championship.
Ancer shot 2-under-par at TPC Southwind on Sunday to join a playoff with Matsuyama and Burns, who shot respective scores of 7-under-par and 6-under-par in the final round.
All three competitors made a par on the first playoff hole, which was the par-4 18th hole, and they played the same one again and this was where Ancer took control.

After taking dead aim at the pin, the 30-year-old hit his ball six feet from the pin which proved to be the shot that won him his first title on the PGA Tour.
