A better playoff

Craig Parry certainly deserved a great reward for making a deuce on the 18th of the Blue Monster to win this week’s PGA event. But, as he and Scott Verplank were preparing for their playoff, I decided that a sudden death playoff really is not the most exciting or most fair way to end an event. Though the 18-hole resolution used in the US Open is perhaps the most fair, it is usually not exciting. I like the British Open’s 4-hole approach, and I think the PGA tour ought to consider at least a 2-hole or 3-hole format, which I think would be both fair an exciting (especially if more than two players are tied at the end).

Just a thought.
