Former LSU golfer Sam Burns beat top-ranked Scottie Scheffler in a playoff at the Charles Schwab Challenge on Sunday with a 38-foot birdie putt. Per ESPN:

FORT WORTH, Texas -- Sam Burns made a 38-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole at Colonial, which came just more than two hours after he had finished his round, to beat top-ranked Scottie Scheffler on Sunday.

After finishing his 5-under 65 to get to 9 under, Burns was done in the clubhouse when, at one point, Scheffler was among five players tied at 10 under.

The gusty wind and a strange sequence changed all that. And Scheffler needed three clutch putts for a 72 just to get into the playoff matching 25-year-old standouts and close friends.

Burns' seven-stroke comeback matched Nick Price in 1994 for the biggest in a final round to win Colonial.

He's having a hell of a year. 4 wins in the last 13 months, and ranked second in FedEx Cup points.
