Canada's Adam Svensson captured the title at the Korn Ferry Tour's Club Car Championship at The Landings Club on Sunday.

Svensson, from Surrey, B.C., made a birdie in the 18th-hole playoff to top American Max McGreevey.

Svensson forced the playoff by making birdies on his final two holes to finish with a 6-under 66 in the fourth round, putting him at 17 under overall.

It was his second career victory on the PGA Tour's feeder circuit.

Svensson won The Bahamas Great Abaco Classic in 2018, helping send him to the PGA Tour the following season for the first time.

The 27-year-old Svensson lost his PGA Tour card after finishing 167th in the standings in 2019.

The win Sunday pushes Svensson to 12th in the Korn Ferry standings.

The top 25 at the end of the 2020-21 Korn Ferry regular season earn PGA cards for next season.

Ben Silverman of Thornhill, Ont., tied for 16th on Sunday, while Stuart Macdonald of North Vancouver, B.C., tied for 28th.
