Madison, MS (Sports Network) - Woody Austin outlasted Daniel Summerhays and Cameron Beckman with a birdie on the first playoff hole on Sunday to win the Sanderson Farms Championship.

Austin carded a 5-under 67 during his final round at Annandale Golf Club to finish the tournament at 20-under-par 268.

Summerhays birdied his final two holes to close out a 3-under 69 and Beckman closed with a birdie at the last to shoot 67 and meet Austin there, but they could not carry that momentum into the playoff, allowing Austin to claim his fourth career victory on the PGA Tour.

Nicholas Thompson (71) finished in fourth at 18-under, while Billy Andrade matched the low round of the day with a 7-under 65 to jump into a share of fifth place with Kyle Reifers (70) at minus-17.

Bill Lunde (70) and Chad Campbell (71) tied for seventh at 16-under 272.
