Cejka outlasted Americans Jon Curran, Tim Petrovic and Sam Saunders and Argentina Emiliano Grillo after all five players finished at seven-under-par 281 at the Trump International course in Rio Grande.

Curran and Grillo both bogeyed the par-five 18th in regulation to fall into the playoff.

The 44-year-old Cejka, who shot a closing 69, collects $540,000.
