Daniel Berger was as hot as any player on the PGA Tour when the season came to a halt three months ago. He only got better as the Tour resumed this weekend at the Colonial Golf Course for the Charles Schwab Challenge. A clutch birdie on 18 led to a playoff against Collin Morikawa. Berger took home the win with a par on the first hole (No. 17), as Morikawa missed a short par putt to send it to a second hole of sudden-death.

Berger came into the day at -11, before shooting a final round -4, which was good enough to take home his third career PGA Tour win. His last win came in 2017, when he defended his title at the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

This was the 28th straight round under par for the 27-year old Berger, who had battled a wrist injury for most of the last two years, but is getting back to the strong play he showed before his injury in 2017.
