My Five: Best Sudden-Death Playoffs
There have already been nine sudden-death playoffs on the PGA Tour this year, on pace to break the record of 16, set in 1988 and 1991. Randomness is the most likely reason, though it's plausible that we are seeing more parity in the wake of Tiger Woods' decline. Providing some of the most exciting moments in golf, sudden death is more memorable when it isn't quite so sudden, particularly when two elite players keep answering each other with clutch shots. Such was the case in the five chosen here.
