Danny Lee clinched his maiden PGA Tour win with a play-off victory at the Greenbrier Classic on Sunday.

The New Zealander fired a final-round three-under 67 to finish at 13 under, alongside David Hearn, Robert Streb and Kevin Kisner.

Lee and Hearn birdied the first play-off hole to eliminate the Americans, and the former managed a par at the par-five 17th to secure the win.

Hearn bogeyed the hole to see 24-year-old, South Korea-born Lee claim his first title on the PGA Tour.

Canadian Hearn had almost won it on his final regulation hole, but he left his putt agonisingly short as the tournament went to a four-way play-off.

Hearn had also carded a 67 in his final round, while Kisner (64) and Streb (65) had surged into contention at The Old White TPC.

Streb's round was all the more remarkable given he broke his putter on the front nine.

The 28-year-old used his wedge to putt and he made three birdies in four holes, including a 30-footer, to be in the hunt.

Streb broke his putter coming off the ninth when he threw it to his caddie and it hit the ground.

There was a four-way share of the lead heading into the final round, but Jason Bohn (71), Sean O'Hair (71), Bryce Molder (70) and S.J. Park (75) struggled.

American Russell Henley (63) finished fifth, while James Hahn, Greg Owen, Andres Romero, David Lingmerth, Brendon Todd, Chad Collins and Molder were at 11 under and tied for sixth.

Tiger Woods finished his tournament with a three-under 67 to end up tied for 32nd.
