CONOVER, N.C. — Mark Wiebe parred the third playoff hole following a weather delay and won the Greater Hickory Classic on Sunday when James Mason missed a four-foot par putt.

Wiebe earned his first Champions Tour title since 2008 in a bizarre finish that included a delay following the first extra hole at Rock Barn. Mason, a Monday qualifier, three-putted from 20 feet to end his chances of earning a one-year playing exemption.

Both players birdied the 18th in regulation to finish at a tournament-record 19 under. That move them past clubhouse leader Fred Funk, who shot 62, and finished tied for third with Chip Beck.

Bob Tway, who led by one shot after the first and second rounds, faded after a double-bogey on the sixth. He shot 71 and finished tied for eighth.
