Golf-Matsuyama and Simpson in Phoenix Open playoff

Feb 5 (Reuters) - Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama and American Webb Simpson headed to a sudden-death playoff after finishing regulation tied at the Phoenix Open in Arizona on Sunday.

The duo finished the 72 regulation holes on 17-under-par 267, Matsuyama narrowly missing a birdie putt at the last to card a five-under 66 and Simpson closing with a best-of-the-day 64.

World number five Matsuyama is seeking his fifth victory in his last nine starts worldwide. (Reporting by Mark Lamport-Stokes in St. Augustine, Florida; Editing by Andrew Both)
