Ben Martin earns 1st career win

Monday - 7/1/2013, 2:19pm  ET

NEWBURGH, Ind. (AP) -- Ben Martin two-putted for par on the first playoff hole Monday to win the Web.com Tour's United Leasing Championship.

It was Martin's first career win.

Martin drew the leadoff spot in a four-man playoff and played the 18th hole perfectly. A 3-wood into the fairway was followed by a 6-iron on the green and two putts for a par-4 that was good enough to beat Joe Affrunti, Ashley Hall and Billy Hurley.

The four were tied at 11-under 277 following the end of regulation play Sunday but a nearly four-hour rain delay didn't leave them enough daylight for the overtime session.
