American golfer Brian Stuard has secured his maiden PGA Tour title.

Stuard has won the weather-hit tournament in New Orleans, beating fellow countryman Jamie Lovemark and Korean Byeong-Hun An in a playoff.

Weather delays forced a Monday finish and led officials to shorten the tournament to 54 holes.

New Zealand number one Danny Lee finished tied for 58th, 11 shots off the pace.
