Nick Taylor defeated Charley Hoffman in a playoff to win the WM Phoenix Open after a brilliant finale that included five birdies in his final six holes.

The iconic 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale got out of control over the final two rounds and drew complaints from both players and fans.

Bill Sangster, a life-long golf aficionado and former Sergeant in Marines, moved to Cape Cod in 1974 where he raised his family while working as educator with the Sandwich School System for 23 years. With his Falmouth home adjacent to Paul Harney’s Golf Course, Bill spent many days learning and playing the game of golf. He was a member of White Cliffs Country Club and Sandwich Hollows Country on Cape Cod. In 2018 he continued his love for the game of golf by moving to “The Villages” in Florida. He now will admit to anyone who asks that he is addicted to the game of golf! Bill can be reached at
