USA’s Gumberg, ranked 669th, wins on Euro tour


EASTERN CAPE, South Africa — Jordan Gumberg, an American ranked No. 669, was a surprise winner of the SDC Championship on the European tour Sunday when he beat Robin Williams in a playoff.

The final round only went to a playoff after Williams made double bogey at the 17th hole to move to 12 under with Gumberg.

Gumberg, 28, who started the day 3 shots off the lead, holed a birdie putt from around 15 feet at the second playoff hole for victory.

Gumberg shot 68 in the final round. Williams shot 69.

“I never really got this far in my dreams,” he said. “So I’m kind of at a loss for words, but it means everything.”
