The golf roundup …
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. ó Brandt Snedeker rallied from six shots behind and beat Luke Donald in a playoff in The Heritage to deny the Englishman the No. 1 ranking Sunday.
Donald wouldíve risen to the top spot in the world from No. 3 had he won. His countryman, Lee Westwood, moved from No. 2 to No. 1, replacing Martin Kaymer, after winning the Indonesian Masters earlier Sunday.
Donald saved par from difficult spots on the 71st and 72nd holes to force the playoff, then did it again on the second extra hole.
But his luck ran out on Harbour Town Golf Linksí closing lighthouse hole, No. 18, when he got a partially buried lie in a front bunker.
Donald blasted out about 15 feet from the flag and his chip for par from just off the green hit the back edge of the cup and bounced away, giving Snedeker his second career PGA Tour title and first since the 2007 Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, N.C.
Snedeker finished with a 7-under 64, tying for lowest round of the tournament, to match Donald at 12 under. Donald shot his second straight 70. Tommy Gainey finished a stroke back after a 68.
Legends of Golf
SAVANNAH, Ga. ó David Eger and Mark McNulty won the Champions Tourís better-ball Legends of Golf when Kenny Perry and Scott Hoch missed short par putts on the second hole of a playoff.
China Open
CHENGDU, China ó Belgiumís Nicolas Colsaerts won the China Open, closing with his second straight 6-under 66 for a tournament-record 24-under 264 total.
The event was sanctioned by the European Tour, China Golf Association and OneAsia Tour.
Indonesian Masters
JAKARTA, Indonesia ó Lee Westwood won the Indonesian Masters and ended up regaining the No. 1 spot in the world when Luke Donald lost a playoff in the PGA Tour event in South Carolina.
After waiting out a lightning delay on the final hole, Westwood finished off a 3-under 69 for a three-stroke victory over Thailandís Thongchai Jaidee.
