Golf-Smith and Blixt win Zurich Classic at fourth playoff hole

May 1 (Reuters) - Australian Cameron Smith and Swede Jonas Blixt won the Zurich Classic of New Orleans team event in a playoff on Monday.

They triumphed with a birdie at the fourth extra hole, outlasting the American duo of Kevin Kisner and Scott Brown at TPC Louisiana.

The playoff was held over until Monday morning after the final round was completed in near-darkness on Sunday evening following a long thunderstorm delay.

Smith's victory, his first on the PGA Tour, earned him a spot in the prestigious Players Championship in Florida next week.

It was Blixt's third tour win.
