Abraham Ancer walked away victorious Sunday in Memphis.

Hideki Matsuyama and Sam Burns were each centimeters away from doing the same.

All three players finished regulation of the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational at 16 under to get into a three-man playoff at TPC Southwind.

On the first extra hole, the par-4 18th, Matsuyama lipped out a 20-foot birdie putt for the win.

On the second trip down No. 18 in the playoff, Ancer stuck his approach shot to 6 feet before Burns answered him by hitting his second shot to 8 feet. However, Burns' birdie try also lipped out viciously.

Ancer ended up converting his birdie putt to claim his first PGA Tour title.
