Sim beats Duke in playoff for first Nationwide win
Sim finished his 1-under 71 fourth round Monday tied with Duke at 12-under 276 after rain delayed the event for nearly three hours Sunday.
Duke (65), who moved atop the money list with his finish, missed a 10-footer for birdie on the playoff hole and watched as the Australian rookie rolled in the winner.
Sim, who turned 22 Monday, moved to No. 18 on the money list with only one full-field event and the Nationwide Tour Championship at The Houstonian left on the schedule.
The top 20 on the money list qualify for the PGA Tour in 2007.
