"Ben" there done that: Martin wins ULC playoff

NEWBURGH, IN (WFIE) -

Ben Martin pars the 18th and is the winner of the United Leasing Championship.

After yet another rain delay at Victoria National this morning, Ben Martin is your winner.

Billy Hurley III, Joe Affrunti, Ashley Hall and Ben Martin were tied at 11 under after regulation Sunday when darkness suspended play in the Web.com Tour's United Leasing Championship.

They returned to Victoria National on Monday for a sudden-death playoff, after waiting out a rain delay which lasted about an hour and twenty minutes.

Hurley and Affrunti were tied for the lead Sunday at 13 under with two holes to play, but dropped back with double bogeys on the par-4 17th. Affrunti four-putted the hole.

Hurley, the third-round leader, finished with an even-par 72 in the round that was delayed because of rain. Hall, from Australia, closed with a 66, Martin shot 67, and Affrunti had a 70.

Canada's Adam Hadwin finished fifth at 9 under after a 71.
