Sunday's golf: Five playoff holes not enough for Day, Noren

San Diego — Jason Day watched the flight of his wedge for as long as he could and had to listen to the crowd to realize he nailed it.

Alex Noren was 5 feet away from extending the playoff Sunday at the Farmers Insurance Open, a putt he could easily have missed except that the Swede could rely on experience.

They matched birdies in the dark on the par-5 18th, and then had no choice but to return Monday morning to decide the longest playoff in the 67-year history of the event.

He took his relief, and smartly played away from the flag to keep it from running by the hole and possibly down the slope into the water, though he missed the putt.

At Paradise Island, Bahamas, Brittany Lincicome beat darkness — with help from floodlights on the Ocean Club’s 18th — to win the season-opening Pure Silk-Bahamas LPGA Classic for the second straight year.
