RICHMOND, Va. -- Scott McCarron came into the season with a goal of winning the Charles Schwab Cup Championship.He put himself in position to do just that Sunday in the Dominion Charity Classic, making a 6-foot putt on the first hole of a playoff with Tom Byrum to win the second of three PGA Tour Champions playoff events. McCarron will start next week in Scottsdale, Arizona, second in points to two-time defending champion Bernhard Langer with the cup on the line.I think its awesome. Bernhard Langers had a great year, a phenomenal year, one of the best years ever, but its a playoff. Youve got to play well in the playoffs, McCarron said, who moved into the top five in the rankings by finishing sixth last week in California. If I can play well next week, I control my own destiny.The three-time PGA Tour champion won the Principal Charity Classic in Iowa in June for his first senior victory.Any time you win an event, youve got a lot of good feelings about your game, youre playing well. To win in a playoff in the fashion I did just gives you a lot of confidence, he said. For me, going into next week, again, Im second in the Schwab Cup, and if I can win, I can win the Schwab Cup, which I think is amazing.McCarron, one of the longest hitters on the tour for players 50 and older, did most of his scoring on the longest holes.I thought that if I could take advantage of the par 5s, I could possibly have a great tournament, and I certainly did that for most of the week, he said.For the season, McCarron has had birdie or better on 54 percent of par 5s. This week, be birdied nine out of 13, including the playoff hole.McCarron and Byrum each shot 3-under 69 in regulation to finish at 13 under on the James River Course at The Country Club of Virginia. Byrum created the tie with a birdie at the 16th hole. Both made pars on the next two holes before McCarrons winning putt on the extra hole gave him his second victory this season.Byrum, seeking his first victory in a PGA Tour-sanctioned event since the 1989 Kemper Open, putted first, but his 15-foot putter slid past on the left edge. McCarron then rolled a slightly bending putt into the center of the cup.I hit that putt just like I wanted, said Byrum, who left soon after the loss to catch a plane. I thought I made it.McCarron had missed a birdie putt on the 54th and final hole of regulation to necessitate the playoff.Kevin Sutherland shot a course-record 63, with seven birdies and an eagle, to tie for third with Brandt Jobe (67) at 11 under.Fred Funk was alone in fifth at 10 under. He closed with four consecutive birdies for a 67.Sutherland also challenged for a coveted top five-spot in Scottsdale. But he needed McCarron to falter and, when the 51-year-old did not, Sutherland wound up sixth in the standings.The points were reset after the event, so that the top five -Langer, McCarron, Colin Montgomerie, Joe Durant and Miguel Angel Jimenez -- only have to win the season finale at Desert Mountain to capture the Charles Schwab Cup.Langer, who played despite a sore knee that kept him out of last weeks tournament, would have locked up the championship weeks ago because of his huge lead in the player standings, but the first-year format means he has to play to claim the title. He shot a 71 on Sunday to tie for sixth at 9 under.Glad I played. I know what to work on, a couple of things that werent firing, said Langer, who also won the Cup in 2010 and was the dominant player on the circuit this season. Spend the next few days working on that and hopefully be ready next week.Each dollar earned Sunday was worth two points -- McCarron earned $305,000 worth 610,000 -- and was added to the regular-season total.---Follow Hank on Twitter: www.twitter.com/hankkurzjr Darrell Green Jersey .

SEATTLE -- David Crisp made all four of his 3-pointers down the stretch and scored 26 points to lead Washington to a 94-88 win over Long Beach State on Tuesday night.The Huskies (3-1) failed to connect on their first 13 3-pointers -- meanwhile the 49ers (1-5) made 10-of-17 from range -- but it was the 3-ball that sealed the victory for Washington, which sank its final eight. UW forced back-to-back turnovers with less than six minutes to play, and Matisse Thybulle followed each with a 3-pointer as the Huskies turned a two-point deficit into a 75-68 lead with 5:10 to play.It just wasnt falling, but in the first half, we were guarding, Washington coach Lorenzo Romar said. That allowed us to stay in the game. We talked to our team about it: The shots arent always going to go in.The second half, we did start making shots and I think we forgot about playing defense at that point. Our identity shifted all of a sudden, where we had an offensive mindset.Crisp made four from behind the arc en route to his career-high and Markelle Fultz added 21 points. The guards picked up the slack in the second half from Noah Dickerson, had 17 of his career-high 23 points in the first half and grabbed a team-high seven rebounds.Once he makes one 3, I think David, he can just go up from there, said Fultz, who also dished out six assists. Thats what he does. He makes big shots at big times.The Huskies didnt lead for the first 17 minutes but went on a 14-2 run -- eight from Dickerson -- near the end of the half to lead 36-32 at the break.Evan Payne led Long Beach State with 19 points and Noah Blackwell added 12, making 4 of 5 behind the arc.BIG PICTURELong Beach State: The 49ers can see the light at the end of the tunnnel.dddddddddddd Tuesdays game against Washington ended a stretch of contests against Wichita State, North Carolina, Louisville and UCLA. All resulted in losses, but Long Beach State played their best game of the stretch in the last game.Washington: Despite what the score against a 1-5 team might indicate, the Huskies played their most complete game of the season. If not for a team of hands that went collectively cold and vice versa for their opponents, the Huskies would have walked away with a decisive win over a team they battled closely in last seasons NIT. Instead, Washington relied on Dickersons best game since arriving on campus and a stellar defensive performance, forcing the 49ers to make shots with hands in their faces, which for the most part, they did.REMATCHTuesdays game featured a repeat of the first round of the NIT last season. The No. 3-seeded Huskies prevailed in a track meet, 107-102. Of the six players to score in double figures in last years meeting only the 49ers Justin Bibbins (17 points, four assists) remained for the rematch.Theyve played us very tough in the past, Romar said. It seems like whenever we play Long Beach State, the games are close. . We knew that they would come out here and play well.UP NEXT:Long Beach State: The 49ers will be seeking their first win since the season-opener as they travel to Fort Myers, Fla., to play Binghamton in the Battle4Atlantis Mainland on Thursday.Washington: The Huskies head to Las Vegas for their first games away from home this season, playing Western Kentucky to open the Global Sports MTE on Friday.
