The son of eight-time PGA Tour victor Bob Tway, the 30-year-old former Oklahoma State player beat Ryan Moore on the par-4 10th after Brandt Snedeker dropped out on their first extra trip down the par-5 18th.

Snedeker could only manage par on the first playoff hole, the 18th, while Moore and Tway both hit birdies on the first two playoff holes.

Ryan Moore came from 7 shots behind at the start of the day with three birdies in his final four holes, while Tway's back-to-back gains on the final two holes of regulation play matched Moore and Snedeker's total.

Tway's father, Bob Tway, also secured his first victory in a playoff 32 years ago at Torrey Pines, making them the 10th father and son Tour winners.

"I was just trying to put the ball in the fairway, which was very hard", Tway said.

"I'm kind of at a loss for words".

Snedeker appeared to have things on cruise control at the Safeway Open, torching the North Course at Silverado Resort & Spa en route to a three-shot lead entering the final round.

Moore also birdied the first two playoff holes to stay alive, but he missed his birdie attempt at No. 10 before Tway sank the victor.

"Really disappointing", Snedeker said. "I basically gave it away and it stinks right now, but I'll get over this and maybe it will help me down the road". "I was just anticipating a really tough day and it was".

"It was challenging but yet very playable conditions", Mickelson said.

Importantly for Baddeley the finish will afford him a start in the next full field event of the season at the Sanderson Farm Championship later in October and puts him in a very good position to regain a PGA Tour card from only limited status.

"For a while I didn't think we were going to play and then when we played, I didn't really play", the 59-year-old Hall of Famer said. "I lost my swing, hit several bad shots and missed some butts".
