BETHESDA, Md. -- Justin Rose got his mistake out of the way early and won the Quicken Loans National in a playoff Sunday over Shawn Stefani.

Tied for the lead on the 18th hole, Rose tried to hit through the trees and put it into the water. He atoned for the mistake by making a 15-foot bogey putt and got into a sudden-death playoff when Stefani made bogey on the 17th hole.

In the playoff, Stefani punched out from the trees and repeated Rose's mistake by hooking his shot into the water. Stefan made double bogey, and Rose won with a par.

Both finished at 4-under 280.

It was Rose's first win since the U.S. Open last summer at Merion. Congressional made it feel like he won another U.S. Open.
