Perry beats Hoffman in play-off

for FBR Open title

Tournament leader Kenny Perry bogeyed the 72nd hole to fall back into a tie at 14-under-par 270 with Charley Hoffman in the FBR Open at TPC Scottsdale, Arizona.
But it all came right for the 48-year-old US 2008 Ryder Cup team member from Kentucky.
He holed a 22ft birdie putt at the third extra hole to chalk up his 13th US PGA Tour win and collect over one million dollars. He won three times last year.
Kevin Nat, who fiished third, a shot behind on 271, could have been in the play-off too. He missed a short birdie putt on the 18th green.
