Kevin Kisner is the best in the world . . . at losing in playoffs
Poor Kevin Kisner. In less than three months, he's lost three playoffs following his latest close call at The Greenbrier Classic. Even Greg Norman must feel bad for him.
If you're saying, "That seems like an awful lot of playoffs for one guy to be involved in," you're right! In fact, Kisner is just the fourth active PGA Tour pro to have played in three playoffs in a single season, according to Golf News Net.
Kisner joins Steve Elkington (1992), Sergio Garcia (2008), Bill Haas (2011) and Webb Simpson (2011) on this rare list. The difference is all four of those guys at least one won of their attempts in extra holes.
Instead, after being eliminated on the first sudden-death hole on Sunday in West Virginia, Kisner fell to 0-3. He previously lost to Jim Furyk at Harbour Town and to Rickie Fowler at the Players.
