FORT WORTH, Texas — The PGA Tour completed a safe and successful return to competition, and so did Daniel Berger. 

He made a 10-foot birdie putt on the final hole and then won the Charles Schwab Challenge by saving par behind the 17th hole in a playoff. 

Collin Morikawa, who missed a 6-foot putt in regulation for the win, missed a 3-foot par putt in the playoff. 

Denver native Mark Hubbard finished tied for 43rd after shooting a 74 on Sunday.

PGA Commissioner Jay Monahan called it a phenomenal return to golf because all 487 coronavirus tests at Colonial came back negative. 

And it was a good show, even though it was a quiet one with no fans.
