Unless Rickie Fowler can hole out from the fairway when he reaches the par-4 17th hole, there will be a playoff to determine the winner of the Kodak Challenge and the $1 million prize.
Troy Merritt had a chance to win it earlier Sunday, but he managed only a par on the hole, which keeps him tied with Fowler and Aaron Baddeley. Because Fowler and Baddeley already birdied the hole this week, only an eagle would knock that score from their total. Baddeley already played the hole today and made par, while Fowler is through 11 holes.
Should there be a playoff, it will take place following the conclusion of the tournament. The first time through, the players will tee off from the middle tees -- 430 yards, which was the same distance during the first two rounds. If there’s still a tie after that, the tee will be moved to the forward set of tees, which play to about 290 yards. If there’s still a tie after that, the tee will be pushed all the way back to 487 yards. -- Brian Wacker
