British Open playoff rules

We could be in for a playoff at the British Open this year and if so these are the four holes golfers will play in order:

No. 1
No. 16
No. 17
No. 18

Whoever cards the lowest aggregate score for those four holes is the champion.

According to TheOpen.com, "If any players are tied after the 4-hole playoff then it is sudden death on the 18th until a winner emerges."

Here's hoping we get it.
