It took two full days and nearly 50 holes, but
The two went back and forth for the fourth and final spot until dark on Monday night and resumed early Tuesday morning. They both played the 18th hole seven times during the playoff and parred it six times. Then Fischer made a birdie to win by two.
After the match, Palmer told George Savaricas of Golf Channel that he was happy for Fischer. "He's a great kid," said Palmer.
