John Daly shot a 5-under 67, including draining a clutch birdie putt on the 18th at the Shell Houston Open. After draining the putt, JD got excited with a fist pump, or, maybe the better description, an overhand punch. Vijay Singh had a chance to win in regulation, but missed a 6-footer for birdie. Playoff.

: Vijay drove first, electing to bomb a driver on the tight 18. It landed in the rough, but luckily in between trees. Vijay was able to hit pitching wedge to the front of the green. Meanwhile, (after electing not to hit any balls on the range during his 30 minutes after the round, but instead to “warm up” with a cigarette), JD played it “safe” with a 3-wood but overcooked it slightly. The ball hit the fairway, but bounded to the left and into the water. JD hit his 7-iron over the green. Some camera man inadvertently kicked it, so JD got a free drop. Only the drop was worse than the original lie. JD hit a respectable shot to 15 feet. But it was all over after Vijay 2-putted for par.
