Argentina's Gomez wins 2016 Sony Open after two-hole playoff

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Argentinean golfer Fabian Gomez rode a 7-hole birdie streak at Waialae Country Club on Sunday to a playoff victory against Brandt Snedeker in the 2016 Sony Open in Hawaii.

Gomez, who entered the day four shots back of the lead, made birdie on 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 before ending the tournament's 72nd hole at 20-under par. Minutes later, Gomez watched Brandt Snedeker birdie the 18th hole to force a playoff.

The pair each made par on the first hole of the playoff before Gomez earned a one-stroke advantage as Snedeker missed a birdie putt to extend the contest.
