Houston Open could have biggest playoff ever
We could be in for a long night at the Houston Open.
At the time of this post on Sunday afternoon, there were 16 golfers within three shots of Dustin Johnson's 13-under lead at the Shell Houston Open.
Johnson is well into his back nine, and most of the guys behind him are still on the front.
If Johnson gets in with a low mark (13- or 14-under), we could see the biggest sudden-death playoff in PGA Tour history.
The current record is six golfers, which happened twice:
2001 Nissan Open: Robert Allenby, Toshi Izawa, Brandel Chamblee, Bob Tway, Jeff Sluman and Dennis Paulson.
Lancaster won the Byron Nelson, and Allenby went on to win the Nissan Open.
Golfers chasing Johnson include Phil Mickelson, Ben Crane, Stewart Cink, and Lee Westwood.
Stay tuned ...
