Charlotte, NC (Sports Network) - Derek Ernst parred the first playoff hole on Sunday to defeat David Lynn and win the Wells Fargo Championship.

Ernst closed with a 2-under 70 on Sunday to end at 8-under-par 280. He was joined there by David Lynn, who also shot 70 in the final round.

The duo returned to the 18th for the playoff. Lynn's drive stopped in the rough near a creek, while Ernst split the fairway. Lynn dumped his second shot in a greenside bunker.

Ernst knocked his approach within 14 feet of the hole. Lynn blasted out, but failed to make par. Ernst then 2-putted for par and the win.

Phil Mickelson bogeyed the 16th and 17th holes to slide out of the lead. He carded his second straight 73 to end one shot out of the playoff at minus-7.

Robert Karlsson and Lee Westwood both closed with even-par 72s and shared fourth place at 6-under-par 282.

Kyle Stanley matched the low round of the day with his 4-under 68. He was joined in sixth place at minus-6 by Bo Van Pelt (71), Ryan Moore (73) and Kevin Streelman (72).
