Day needs extra day to win Farmers Insurance Open in playoff

Alex Noren was 5 feet away from extending the playoff Sunday at the Farmers Insurance Open, a putt he could easily have missed except that the Swede could rely on experience.

World number 14 Day's U.S. title total, topped by his 2015 PGA Championship title, also includes the 2015 Torrey Pines crown, putting him alongside such two-time winners as Arnold Palmer and Tom Watson. In extra time, the duo matched birdie-4s on the first two tours of the 18th, routine pars at the par-3 16th, 2-putt pars at the 17th and birdie-4s again at 18.

Tiger Woods had taken his bow and left the stage when fierce drama unfolded Sunday at Torrey Pines, with Alex Noren and Jason Day locked in a playoff duel as darkness fell.

Day, the victor of this event in 2015, laid up short of the water hazard with his second stroke before dialling in a stunning approach to within two feet to all but end Noren's chances of a maiden PGA Tour victory. Storms the previous day had downed several trees and forced parts of the course to be evacuated, and Brandt Snedeker ultimately won the event without hitting a shot during Monday's finish.

"Too dark right now, I could barely see the last putt", Noren said in a post-round television interview. Day made his birdie putt for the win.

It was the third playoff in as many weeks on the PGA Tour, all of them at least four holes and two of them lasting at least six.

Woods said it was a mostly positive week, and it was hard to argue considering he was returning from his fourth back surgery. "It's good to be back in the action, good to be back where I'm at right now". I was up all night thinking about trying to get that 11th win. Noren, the 54-hole leader, shot a final-round 73, while Day shot 70. I'm very thankful for my whole team.

Despite his success on the European Tour, Noren is little known in the United States - and he's happy to fly under the radar.
