(Reuters) - American Rickie Fowler and Japanese Hideki Matsuyama headed to a sudden-death playoff after finishing the regulation 72 holes locked together at the Phoenix Open on Sunday.

Matsuyama finished birdie-birdie, knocking in a 17-foot putt at the last at the TPC Scottsdale, before Fowler forced the playoff by calmly sinking a 10-footer.

They finished at 14-under 270, two strokes clear of American Harris English.
