2011 PGA St. Jude Classic Results: Harrison Frazar Wins 1st PGA Tour Victory On 3rd Playoff Hole

Entering the 18th hole on Sunday afternoon, Harrison Frazar had a one-stroke lead over Robert Karlsson at 14-under. A bogey moved Frazar back to 13-under and in a playoff with Karlsson. After they both birdied the first two holes, the third extra hole came to the par-4 12th. Frazar made par and then saw Karlsson miss the hole on his par putt for the victory, his first on the PGA Tour.

Frazar started the day one stroke behind Karlsson at 10-under and made three birdies on the front nine. After a birdie on the 11th hole, Frazar moved into a tie with Karlsson, who made four birdies and one bogey on the front nine. Both played steady on the back nine until the final holes. Karlsson wound up bogeying the 17th hole, but it was Frazar who dropped the ball on the 18th. He really did need to drop the ball, as he hit it in the water for a one-stroke penalty. He wound up bogeying the hole while Karlsson saved par to force a playoff.

Camilo Villegas fired the lowest score of the round with a 6-under, though Tim Herron was right behind him with a 5-under. Lee Westwood, the world's No. 2 golfer, finished just outside the Top 10 at No. 11. He finished at 6-under for the tournament, 4-under for the day.

The Top 10:

1. Robert Karlsson -13
2. Harrison Frazar -13
T3. Camilo Villegas -8
T3. Tim Herron -8
T3. Ryuji Imada -8

2011 PGA St. Jude Classic Leaderboard: Robert Karlsson, Harrison Frazar Battling For Top Spot

The 2011 FedEx St. Jude Classic at TPC Southwind comes down to two: Robert Karlsson and Harrison Frazar are tied at 14-under with four holes remaining, five holes ahead of third-place Retief Goosen. The rest of the top 10 is either in the clubhouse or has just a hole or two left. Camilo Villegas finished the day 6-under to join that fourth-place pileup.

Frazar started the day a stroke behind Karlsson, but a bogey by the leader on hole No. 8 amid an otherwise hot front nine put the leading pairing in a tie.

For longtime European Tour vet Karlsson, a win in Memphis would be the first of his PGA career. Frazar's only two career wins came on the Nationwide Tour in 1997 and in the 2008 PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament.
