TROPHY WAGs

For some golfers, the biggest prizes aren't their tournament wins but their wives and girlfriends.

Ferrie and Wakefield both carded a 67 to finish 12-under 276 for the tournament. In the playoff, Wakefield's approach to the green landed in the rough. Ferrie holed a 7-foot birdie to wrap up the victory.

Joost Luiten of the Netherlands led the leaderboard for most of the final round but bogeyed the last hole.

Thomas Norret of Denmark, who had a two-stroke overnight lead, carded a double bogey on the par-5 13th and finished fourth for his best career result.
