PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif., Feb. 21 (UPI) -- Adam Scott won the rain-shortened Nissan Open Monday on the first hole of a playoff with Chad Campbell.

The tournament was a 36-hole event instead of the usual 72 holes because of rains that made the Riviera Country Club course virtually unplayable.

Scott had tied Campbell for the lead at 9-under-par 133 Sunday with a birdie on the last hole of the second round. He won the playoff with a 3-foot par putt after Campbell had missed from about 4 feet.

No other PGA event had been cut to 36 holes since the Buick Challenge in 1996.

"It's been a tough week, very unusual week, but I knew I had to make that putt on Sunday and it worked out in the end," Scott said. "A win's a win."

Darren Clarke and Brian Davis shared third place at 134. J.L. Lewis and Colin Montgomerie finished at 135.

Tiger Woods tied for 13th place. He had needed a higher finish to take over the world No. 1 ranking from Vijay Singh.
