BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Steve Wheatcroft rolled in a 10-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole to beat Steven Alker and win the Albertsons Boise Open on Sunday.

The pair battled back and forth at Hillcrest Country Club and were tied at 24 under after regulation play.

Wheatcroft watched as Alker's 30-foot birdie try stopped a couple feet short of the cup and then stepped up and made his putt.

"This is unbelievable. I'm just speechless," said the 36-year old from Jacksonville, Florida, who won for the second time in his career. "I've been playing so badly this year that I thought I might be done. I lost all belief."
