CARY, N.C. (AP) Lee Janzen made a 20-foot birdie putt on the first hole of a playoff with Miguel Angel Jimenez on Sunday to win the PGA Tour Champions' SAS Championship.

"Crazy. I just need to get through this so I can have a moment to myself soon," Janzen said. "When you get in the heat of a tournament, it's emotional. Everything gets amped up."

The 57-year-old Janzen also birdied the par-4 18th in regulation, holing a putt from the fringe, in a closing 5-under 67 in the regular-season finale.
