Lee wins playoff in Midland

Danny Lee closed with a six-under 66 Sunday, then parred the first playoff hole to beat Harris English and win the WNB Golf Classic.

English, who won the Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitational as an amateur earlier this summer, posted a three-under 69 to end alongside Lee at 18-under- par 270.

The duo returned to the 18th hole at Midland Country Club for the playoff. Lee carded a par to win as English tripped to a bogey.

Garth Mulroy fired an eight-under 64 to end alone in third at minus-16. Bob Heintz (66), Craig Bowden (71) and Gavin Coles (73) shared fourth place at 15- under-par 273.

Third-round leader B.J. Staten stumbled to a five-over 77 to slide into a tie for 10th at 13-under-par 275.
