Crawford set to defend SP PNG Golf Open title

The pair could not be separated through five playoff holes on the par-3 18th, both making par on all attempts.

On their sixth trip, both Crawford and Rankin hit their tee shot approximately 40 feet from the flag, Rankin eventually made a bogey while Crawford made par for his first victory on the ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia.
