Ridings Claims 1st Win In 19 Years At TPC Colorado Championship

BERTHOUD, Colorado (AP) — Tag Ridings closed with a 4-under 68, made birdie in a playoff to stay live and then won with a par on the second extra hole in the TPC Colorado Championship at Heron Lakes.

It was his first victory in 19 years, back when the PGA TOUR’s feeder circuit was called the Buy.com Tour. And it featured a wild finish in the thin air of Colorado.

David Skinns (65) and Kevin Yu (67) finished at 16-under 272, and Ridings had to play the final four holes in 1 under just to join them.

Taylor Pendrith made bogey on the 18th to miss the playoff by one shot, while Vince India bogeyed the last two to miss the playoff by two shots.

On the par-3 16th in a playoff, Ridings and Skinns each made birdie to advance. Skinns bogeyed the 16th on the second extra hole, and Ridings won with a par.
