“It felt more like 12 feet for me,” Karlsson said. “It was a really, really big eight feet. I know that’s a putt to get into the playoff. So you pick your spot and try to hit it there. The

But he gave up the lead on 18 when his approach shot trickled into the water hazard and he had to settle for a bogey while Karlsson made a tough 8-footer for par to force the playoff.

Frazar hit his approach 22 feet from the hole and two-putted while Karlsson missed the green, chipped 11 feet past the hole, and missed the putt that would have kept his hopes alive. ■

TPC Southwind Golf course architect Ron Prichard produced the original layout for TPC Southwind with consultation from former U.S. Open champions Hubert Green and Fuzzy Zoeller. In 2004, Loren Roberts directed a renovation


that saw dozens of trees removed to improve playability and shot lines, which had been altered over time. The rough was seeded with fescue grass, which makes it even more fearsome, and the greens were also re-seeded to try and negate the effects of the summer heat and humidity.
