They got into overtime and play three holes rickie fowler is venturing off and using a driver when everyone is using a three wood and he makes excellent contact with the ball, because he used his driver he was ahead of Sergio and Kevin by at least twenty yards. Therefor his second shot was a very easy nine iron for him. He gets on the green in two shots while Kevin is off on the fringe and Sergio has a long birdie putt. It all comes down to this one shot for birdie an Rickie sinks it for birdie. Sergio had almost the same shot earlier and could read the green but he just misses left, and kevin even though is off the green he sinks the putt and is going into a fourth overtime. It’s hole seventeen again the water hole and Rickie hits a great shot right next to the hole, as for Kevin he hits it further away. Kevin barely misses the putt and Rickie makes it to win it.
