Nick Taylor crossed the final hurdle at the 2024 WM Phoenix Open this time as he rallied from behind to beat Charley Hoffman in a two-hole playoff.

Taylor was at 18-under this week and was three strokes behind Hoffman with just four holes to go. However, he birdied three of the last four holes to card 6-under 65 in the final round and made it to the playoff against Hoffman.

Both sank a birdie in the first playoff hole on the par-4, 18th. In the second extra hole, while the Canadian golfer was able to make a clutch birdie, Hoffman's putt fell a bit short, and he settled with a par.

Social media was flooded with congratulatory messages for Taylor on his fourth win on the PGA Tour. Here's a look at some of the reactions:

"Should Mike Weir be worried about his Canadian goat status🤔🤔"
"Awesome, great finish! Congrats Nick 👏🏻… Just missing Adam getting tackled with the champagne 🍾"
"Congrats Nick and to Hoffman he played absolutely amazing as well! Such a great tournament!"
