Steve Stricker has won golf's Colonial Invitational in Texas in a sudden death play-off with fellow American Steve Marino and South African Tim Clark.

They had all finished the 72 regulation holes of the PGA Tour event on a 17-under-par 263.

Stricker, the former world number three, sealed victory with a birdie at the second extra hole, hitting a superb eight-iron approach to four feet and calmly sinking the putt.

The Rotorua teenager Danny Lee tied for 46th, with a final round one-under-par 69.
