Last Year: Justin Rose of England captured the Tiger Woods-hosted event for the second time, winning the first playoff in tournament history with a par on the first extra hole when Shawn Stefani hit his second shot into the water to make a double-bogey 6 on No. 18 at Congressional Country Club. Rose, who has seven wins on the PGA Tour including the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in April, had a one-stroke lead on the 72nd hole but hit his approach into the water and had to hole a 15-foot bogey putt to get into the playoff with a 1-under-par 70. Stefani missed a 20-foot birdie putt to win the tournament on the final hole of regulation and also closed with a 70. Rose’s first victory in the National came in 2010 at Aronimink.

Last Year: Mo Martin hit the pin with her 3-wood approach shot from 240 yards and then sank a 6-foot eagle putt on the 72nd hole to make her first LPGA Tour title a major, winning by one stroke over Shanshan Feng of China and Suzann Pettersen of Sweden at Royal Birkdale. The 5-foot-2 Martin, known as “Mighty Mo,” closed with an even-par 72 in windy conditions and had to wait for an hour for the rest of the field to finish before she knew she was the winner. Pettersen, a two-time major champion, birdied the last two holes but was done in by double bogeys on the first and 13th holes in a 75. Feng, who won the 2012 LPGA Championship, also finished with a 75, missing a 15-foot birdie putt on the final hole that would have forced a playoff.

Champions Tour

Event: 3M Championship at TPC Twin Cities in Blaine, Minn., Friday through Sunday.

TV: Friday, noon-2 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, 3-6 p.m.; Golf Channel.

Last Year: Kenny Perry scrambled for a birdie on the final hole, sinking a 15-foot putt to win by one stroke over Bernhard Langer of Germany. Perry, who claimed his seventh victory on the Champions Tour but has not won since, closed with a bogey-free 65 after taking the lead a day earlier with a 63. He made his only bogey of the tournament on the fourth hole of an opening 65. Langer rallied from four stokes down with nine holes remaining with birdies on seven of the next eight holes to tie Perry going to the final hole. However, the German star missed a long birdie putt to force a playoff on the final hole and finished with a 63, making his only bogey at No. 7.
