MAUI, Hawaii, Feb. 24 (UPI) -- The duo of Fuzzy Zoeller and Peter Jacobsen won Sunday's Champions Skins Game in Maui, Hawaii, with a par at the first playoff hole.

Zoeller and Jacobsen won six skins at the two-day event and earned $320,000.

The 2007 winning duo of Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson finished second after Nicklaus missed a 12-foot birdie putt at No. 18 in regulation. A make would have given the team its second straight Skins game victory.

The second-place finish was worth $270,000.

"It's a crazy game and things were just falling our way," Zoeller joked. "Guys were missing putts and we had an opportunity to make a couple to get us into the positive category and it just blossomed from there."

Gary Player and Loren Roberts captured three of their four skins Sunday and won $180,000 for their third-place finish.

The team of Arnold Palmer and Jay Haas failed to win any skins.
