Hunter Mahan wins Travelers Championship

Hunter Mahan, 25, had never won a PGA event before. However, his history has changed by winning the 2007 Travelers Championship.

The win required facing Jay Williamson in one playoff hole. Mahan made quick work by making a birdie on the first hole of playoff competition.

Mahan earned about $1 million for the win. He also earned a spot at the 2008 Mercedes - Benz Championship in Hawaii and the 2008 Masters.

Williamson, although disappointed, must still be satisfied. Prior to the Travelers event, Williamson was 7th on the Nationwide Tour money list with about $150,000. He earned $648,000 for the Travelers second place finish. He now can compete in next week's Buick Open in Flint, Michigan.

Nick O'Hern took third place. Vijay Singh finished fourth.
