Matt Jones’ winning equipment from the Shell Houston Open

Matt Jones’ winning equipment from the Shell Houston Open

In a thrilling finish, Matt Jones holed his third shot on the par 4 18th hole to beat Matt Kuchar in a playoff and win the Shell Houston Open. Jones forced the playoff with a birdie of the 18th in regulation, only to watch as Kuchar dunked his approach into the drink on 18, and then follow it up with a superb up-and-down from about 80 yards to secure a tie, forcing a playoff.

In the playoff, Jones bunkered his tee shot while Kuchar found the short grass. Unable to reach the green, Jones laid up short and right of the green, while Kuchar’s approach hit the green side bunker short and right. From there, Jones holed a miraculous chip over the bunker where Kuchar’s ball sat for an unbelievable birdie. Kuchar hit a superb bunker shot, but it came up about 10 feet short, and victory was Jones’.
