Allenby needs birdie for playoff

Robert Allenby’s birdie putt from 11 feet on the par-3 17th came up agonizingly short, missing barely on the low side of the hole. After he missed the putt, it looked like Allenby was about to walk right off the green into the water. He didn’t, obviously, and he recovered nicely, splitting the fairway with a 3-wood on the 18th hole, where he needs a birdie from 214 yards to force a playoff with Tim Clark.

Lee Westwood, meanwhile, got wet on No. 17, coming up just short of the green to wash away any chance he had of winning. -- Brian Wacker
