AKRON, Ohio (UPI) - Jim Colbert won a four-man sudden playoff Sunday on the second extra hole to capture the $170,000 American Golf Classic and a first prize of $34,000. Colbert, Ray Floyd, Gay Brewer and Forrest Fezler were thrown into the four-man playoff, the first on the PGA tour since the 1971 Kemper Open, when they all finished 72 holes at one-over par 281. Colbert, 33, of Wesley Chapel, Fla., two-putted from 25 feet for a par five on the long 625yard 16th hole to eliminate Floyd who missed a four-foot putt for a bogey six. Both Fezler and Brewer bowed out on the 230-yard 15th hole when they suffered bogeys while both Colbert and Floyd parred. Brewer, who had a final round 71 was the only one of the four players to hit the 15th green, but was 45 feet away. The other three were in sand surrounding the green, Fezler and Floyd in the right and Colbert to the left. After Fezler, the third round leader, missed an 18-foot putt and was forced to take a bogey four, Floyd canned his 12-footer and Colbert dropped in his putt from 10 feet to save par. Brewer, who left his first putt four feet short of the hole, slid the second one just to the left of the cup and bowed out along with Fezler. Final round scores soared on the long Firestone course with a pair of one-under 69s by Jim Dent and Arnold Palmer being the day's best. Colbert, who entered the final round trailing Fezler, the third round leader, by three shots, had an even par 70. Floyd, who led at the end of one round and was tied at the halfway mark, also had a 70 while Brewer had a 71 and Fezler a 73.
