Playoff bound


TURNBERRY, Scotland – Hate to even mention this, but with three players tied at 3 under par we've just heard from Open officials the four-hole playoff will be played on Nos. 5, 6, 17 and 18.

Wonder if anyone has ever mentioned to the U.S. Golf Association – which perfers an 18-hole extra frame – if the game's oldest championship is OK with a four-hole bout?
