Kevin Kisner wins wild six-man playoff at Wyndham Championship [VIDEO]

In a bizarre scene in Charlotte, Kevin Kisner survives the madness to take home the trophy.

One of the more remarkable finishes in PGA Tour history happened on Sunday afternoon, as six golfers tied at-15 after 72 holes took to a sudden death playoff in history. It was a tie for the largest playoff field in history.

It started with 54-hole leader Russel Henley having this to force a record seven-man shootout, but he missed it.

Branden Grace, Si Woo-Kim, Kevin Kisner, Kevin Na, Adam Scott, and Roger Sloan all took to the 18th tee to play it again to determine a winner.

The event already started earlier than scheduled because of weather, and due to the playoff they ended up playing longer than expected anyway.

While there were some wild scrambles to get up and down amongst the other five competitors, Adam Scott had just 51 inches on the first playoff hole to win it. But he simply choked it away with this brutal miss.

So all six players went back and re-teed 18 yet again, and this time Kevin Kisner was the man with the short putt. After a flawless 9-iron, his ball rested a mere 49 inches from the cup.

It’s Kisner’s first win since the 2019 WGC Match Play Championship, and his first career playoff win after going 0-5 in his previous attempts in extra golf. He was +5500 to win the tournament entering the week at DraftKings Sportsbook.
