JACKSON, Miss. (AP) Whether it was sheer confidence or remarkable resilience, Mackenzie Hughes never doubted he would win the Sanderson Farms Championship. He just never imagined how it would unfold Sunday evening.

Hughes had to make six key putts on the final seven holes - four of them for par - to outlast Sepp Straka on the second playoff hole for his second PGA Tour victory.

"The second one felt a lot harder than the first one, that's for sure," Hughes said.
