    Harris English clinched a third PGA Tour title on Sunday when he won the Sentry Tournament of Champions in a playoff.

    Having led the event from the opening round, English was poised for a big performance on the final day.

    He was, however, set to be pushed until the very end by a handful of contenders, claiming his first victory in more than seven years.

    A final-round 69 had English finish on 24 under par for the week, alongside Joaquin Niemann as they headed down the 18th for a playoff.

    Defending champion Justin Thomas managed to conclude his week with a brilliant 66 securing him third spot, while overnight-leader Ryan Palmer finished a stroke back on 23 under.
