Web.com event ties record for longest playoff ever
Steve Alker and Dawie van der Walt played for what seemed like forever on Sunday in Ohio.
Steve Alker and Dawie van der Walt were tied after 72 holes at the Web.com's Cleveland Open on Sunday.
They were tied after 73, 74, and 75 as well. They remained tied after 76, 77, 78, 79, and 80. And 81 and 82 too. Then, on the 83rd hole, Alker broke through with a birdie.
The tournament tied the record for the longest sudden-death playoff ever at a PGA Tour-sanctioned event. The other was an 11-holer at the 1949 Motor City Open.
"I had a lot of chances. I felt like I was inside of Dawie several times and had several chances to win," said Alker. "I got a little bit dizzy out there. At one point, and I can’t recall when, Dawie and I looked at each other and I said 'is anybody going to win?'"
