Bernhard Langer and Mark Wiebe are in a sudden-death playoff at The Senior Open Chamionship presented by Rolex. After each made two pars in a playoff on No. 18 Sunday, darkness settled in. The competitors resumed their two-man game at 8 a.m. local time (3 a.m. ET) Monday morning. Stay here for updates on the action.
3:53: After missing right on the fourth hole, Langer misses left on the fifth and Mark Wiebe, with a par on the fifth playoff hole, wins the Senior Open Championship presented by Rolex.
3:52 a.m.: Langer's touchy pitch shot lands just over the bunker but rolls about 10 feet past the hole. He'll be on a line similar to his last par putt. Wiebe's long birdie bid settles within a few inches and he taps in for par. Langer must make to extend the playoff.
3:48 a.m.: Langer comes up well short with his approach shot but it settles just behind the short-right bunker both players found on the previous hole. Wiebe, who couldn't see the flag from his lie, hits a low shot that rolls just right of the same bunker and up onto the front of the green.
3:42 a.m.: Langer doesn't make the same mistake off the tee but misses to the left this time with his ball settling just in the first cut of rough. Wiebe drops back to a 3-wood and also goes left, finding the second cut of rough. Slight advantage to Langer.
3:36 a.m.: After watching Langer miss his par attempt on the right, Wiebe misses short and right. Both players tap in for bogey and will return to the 18th tee for the fifth time in this playoff (third time this morning).
3:33 a.m.: Langer blasts first and lands it short but the ball releases about 12 feet beyond the hole. Wiebe flies his bunker blast farther but it checks up better and settles just inside Langer's. He'll have a putt on a similar line after getting a read from Langer.
3:30 a.m.: Langer gouges out of the tall stuff with a 5-iron and his ball trickles into a greenside bunker short and left. Wiebe, from 194 yards, flies his ball into the same bunker. He'd just carried it with his approach in the day's first playoff hole (the third of the championship).
3:27 a.m.: Langer hits first and misses the fairway to the right. He will be gouging out of the tall rough. Wiebe steps up second and hits a perfect drive down the middle. Advantage: Wiebe.
3:22 a.m.: Langer misses just left and taps in. Wiebe converts his par putt and we return to the 18th tee for the fourth time in this sudden-death playoff.
3:20 a.m.: Wiebe uses his putter from off the back of the green and leaves his birdie bid about three feet short. Langer has a putt for his second Senior Open title in four years.
3:15 a.m.: Langer hits his second shot the perfect distance and it settles pin-high inside 20 feet. Wiebe lands his ball just short of the green over a bunker short-left and it rolls off the back of the green. Advantage: Langer.
3:05 a.m.: Two solid drives for Langer and Wiebe on the 18th hole. Both are in very good position to attack the flag on this very difficult par-4. They've gone par-par twice already in this playoff.

PHOTOS OF THE WEEK: Click for gators, grimaces, and a gutty win by Billy Horschel in New Orleans
Check out the top five shots of the week from the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and Liberty Mutual Insurance Legends of Golf featuring Jason Dufner, Brad Faxon, Lucas Glover, Ken Looper and Billy Horschel.
SAVANNAH, Ga. -- Brad Faxon and Jeff Sluman won the Liberty Mutual Insurance Legends of Golf after a Sunday no one would have expected.
Conditions were difficult for scoring at The Club at Savannah Harbor, so a final-round shootout never quite materialized. Faxon/Sluman shot 65 to win at 23 under, one better than Kenny Perry/Gene Sauers and Fred Funk/Mike Goodes, who both started well off the lead and teed off on the 10th hole in the split-tee final round.
In the previous four years, the winners shot 62 or better in the final round. Contrast that to Sunday, where Faxon/Sluman parred their last four holes.
Kirk Triplett and Craig Stadler were one shot back with two holes to play but couldn't get a birdie putt to fall on 17 and then bogeyed the par-4 18th, which didn't yield a birdie all day.
Second-round leaders Jay Don Blake and Roger Chapman shot 1 under and finished in a tie for 16th.
For Sluman, the win comes after two runner-up finishes in previous years with Stadler.
SAVANNAH, Ga. -- The final groups on Sunday always have a bit of an advantage at the Liberty Mutual Insurance Legends of Golf, seeing leaderboards and knowing exactly what they need to do.
But if they're watching right now, they'll find they have a lot to do.
A gaggle of teams that began a few shots back have got to 21 under midway through their second nines, such as the teams of Fred Couples/Jay Haas, Larry Mize/Hal Sutton and Steve Elkington/Rocco Mediate, while the leaders haven't made any noise early.
Second-round leaders Jay Don Blake and Roger Chapman made the turn at even par, with one bogey and one birdie, still at the 17 under number where they began the day. Their partners in the final group, Jim Gallagher Jr. and Scott Hoch, are just 2 under through nine holes (18 under), with a bogey on the ninth.
Tom Lehman and Bernhard Langer, the 2009 champions that figured to be in the mix on Sunday, are only 1 under through 10 holes and 17 under overall.
Lehman speculated on Saturday that there could be a 59 or 60 at The Club at Savannah Harbor in the final round, but that is appearing unlikely. What's more likely may be a playoff.
SAVANNAH, Ga. -- So far this week at the Liberty Mutual Insurance Legends of Golf, scores of 61 and 62 have been fired in the better-ball team format.
Expect a score like that, and maybe even something lower, to take the title on Sunday.
Jay Don Blake and Roger Chapman started the final round at 17 under but the lead will fluctuate all day as the birdies come from every corner of The Club at Savannah Harbor.
Fred Couples and Jay Haas, three back at the start of the round, have birdied four of their first five holes to get to 18 under. Mark Calcavecchia and Peter Senior, two back when they began, are also at 18 under after three early birdies.
"I think it's all set for somebody to shoot really low," said Tom Lehman, who with partner Bernhard Langer started the round one shot back. "I think there's a 60 out there, a 59, 61, obviously those are all possibilities and I think somebody may do that."
The winners have shot 62 or better in the final round each of the last four years.

SAVANNAH, Ga. -- The team of Jay Don Blake and Roger Chapman only birdied one of the four par 5s on Saturday at The Club at Savannah Harbor, which is usually a roadblock to going low a better-ball format.
But they cleaned up well everywhere else with 10 birdies on the other 14 holes, including a six-birdie streak on their second nine, shooting 61 to get to 17 under and the lead at the Liberty Mutual Insurance Legends of Golf.
"We were thinking par 5s, that's where you want to make some advantage, but we didn't do that," Blake said. "But you never know, we made (three) birdies on the par 3s, we'd hit it close from 225 yards to make birdie."
"You never know" is probably a safe label for Sunday, with five teams one shot behind the leaders. Among those are first-round leaders Jeff Sluman and Brad Faxon, who followed their opening 62 with a 66 that included a bogey on the 17th. Andy North and Tom Watson, winners in 2008, are also in the chasing group after a Saturday 64 that included two bogeys.
"There were enough birdies out there to satisfy us," Watson said. "It's going to be a shootout on Sunday, for sure. You've got to shoot 10 under or better to win."
Four groups are two back of the lead including the champions of the last two years, Michael Allen/David Frost and David Eger/Mark McNulty.
In the 36-hole Raphael Division, Ian Baker-Finch and Bart Bryant won on the third playoff hole over Keith Fergus and Blaine McCallister.
