Day and Noren to decide golf title today

Woods breaks into top 20 during final round at Torrey Pines

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.

Jason Day and Alex Noren are deadlocked at Torrey Pines, with their sudden-death playoff set to resume with a sixth extra hole at 11 a.m. ET.

He made a nerveless three-metre birdie putt at the first playoff hole to ensure that his chances of winning would remain, and several brilliant iron shots including one at the fifth playoff hole that he almost jarred for eagle.

Noren, a nine-time victor on the European Tour who is seeking his first US PGA Tour title, carded a three-under par 69 to take the 54-hole lead on 11-under 205.

Noren blasted his second shot onto the raised green but the ball rolled back into a water hazard, prompting Day to leave his second shot short of the water. The trio finished regulation tied at 10-under 278.

"It was between the 5-wood - I didn't think it was going to get there - and the 3-wood would have gone back there where [Noren] was (over the green)", Holmes said. Day made birdie on the first hole played Monday to win his first title since the 2016 PLAYERS Championship.

"I know that previous year wasn't the greatest season for me and I had a lot of stuff going on off course". They made pars on the 16th and 17th holes, with Day having the best chance to end it on the par-3 16th until his 12-foot putt stayed on the right edge.

While Zeman represents poorer and rural voters with lower education , Drahos appeals to wealthier, well-educated urbanites. Zeman won the first round on January 12-13, picking up 38.56 percent of the vote, from a field of nine candidates.

But the show belonged to Day and Noren as the final round meandered toward sunset.

"I was up all night last night just thinking about getting the next win, number 11, and you know I'm really happy".

"That double was very sour to me", said Noren, ranked 19th in the world.

Beset by injuries and family issues in the past 18 months, Day has fallen to 14th in the world rankings after spending 47 of his 51 total weeks at No.1 until as recently as February previous year.

But there won't be any spectators allowed at Torrey Pines today.

Woods said it was a mostly positive week, and it was hard to argue considering he was returning from his fourth back surgery.

"I got a lot out of my rounds", Woods said.
