CROMWELL, CT (WFSB) -

Ken Duke got his first ever PGA tour win by winning the 62nd Travelers Championship after a two-hole playoff.

The 44-year-old won by defeating Texan Chris Stroud, who forced the playoff by chipping on the 18th for a birdie. Stroud and Duke finished regulation with -12. 

Bubba Watson, who was the leader for most of Friday and Saturday, had a chance for the win until he hit a triple bogey on the 16th, which took him out of contention. He finished the day at -10. 

Graham DeLaet finished at -11 while both Fairfield native J.J. Henry and Webb Simpson finished the tournament at -9.
