The 2019 Charles Schwab Cup Championship final leaderboard is headed by winner Jeff Maggert, who won the final event of the PGA Tour Champions season with a playoff victory over Retief Goosen at Phoenix Country Club in Phoenix, Ariz.
Maggert and Goosen were at the top of the leaderboard after 72 holes of regulation in the Charles Schwab Cup playoffs finale, tied at 21-under 263 to lead the 34-player field.
In the playoff, both players made par on the par-5 18th in the first playoff hole. Then they both managed to make birdie on the second playoff hole, with Maggert making 4 despite a poor drive.
Then the playoff moved to the par-4 17th. Goosen found the fairway bunker and hit his approach to leave a reasonable birdie putt. Then, Maggert hit from 123 yards, finding the bottom of the cup with a bounce-in, walk-off eagle to win the tournament.
Maggert won the $440,000 winner's share of the $2,500,000 purse.

In the end, McCarron won, Kelly finished second, Goosen third, Bernhard Langer fourth and Colin Montgomerie fifth.
