David Lynn spun a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship to earn a spot in a playoff with Derek Ernst at 8-under 280, but he would come up short of the title on the first extra hole.
Lynn dodged everyone in the field with the exception of the rookie, who birdied the 72nd hole to force the Englishman into a playoff. In the playoff, Lynn found a hazard off the tee but managed to play his ball into a greenside bunker. He was unable to find the putting surface with his third shot, eventually allowing Ernst a two-putt par for the win. This is the second time Lynn's been a runner-up on the PGA TOUR, with his first coming at the 2012 PGA Championship. He now turns is attention to TPC Sawgrass and THE PLAYERS.
