Kevin Tway birdied the first playoff hole on Sunday to defeat Spencer Levin and win the Boise Open.

Tway carded a 7-under 64 at Hillcrest Country Club, while Levin fired an 8- under 63 as they finished at 23-under-par 261. They beat the tournament scoring record of 262 that Luke Guthrie set last year.

The pair returned to the 18th hole for the playoff. Tway made birdie to top Levin, who was making just his second start of the year.

Michael Putnam, who was going for his third win of the year and an automatic promotion to the PGA Tour, fired a 63 of his own to end one back at minus-22. He shared third place with third-round leader Philip Pettitt, Jr. (67) and Bronson La'Cassie (65).

Hunter Haas, who eagled 16 and had a hole-in-one on 17, closed with a 64. He was joined in sixth place at 20-under-par 264 by Matt Bettencourt (65), Jason Allred (66), Jamie Lovemark (66), Ben Martin (63) and Will Wilcox (67).

Russell Knox, who fired a 59 in round two, closed with rounds of 68-69 to finish in a tie for 12th at minus-19.
