Golf-PGA Championship heads to playoff

By Steve Keating

TULSA, Oklahoma (Reuters) -Americans Justin Thomas and Will Zalatoris were heading for a three-hole playoff at the PGA Championship on Sunday at Southern Hills Country Club, after Chile’s Mito Pereira blew a one-shot lead on the final hole.

Thomas, the 2017 PGA Championship winner, staged a stunning rally, coming from seven shots back to card a three-under 67 and get to five-under.

Zalatoris birdied the last for a 71 to earn his spot in the playoff.

Leading by one stepping onto the 18th tee, Pereira had a hand on the Wanamaker trophy then threw it away when his tee shot found the creek, taking a double-bogey.
