On February 22, PGA Tour announced it would launch a new playoff sequence at official events, from the WGC – Workday Championship this week.

This document is sent to member golfers via e-mail. The scope of application is extra hole stroke play in the form of sudden death – the score by hole determines the final result.

And according to the new rules, the competition order will be determined by the “finish first” principle. This means that a golfer who has completed the 72 standard holes first will be kicked first in the extra hole. In the event of a golfer hitting the bottom group in the later hole, the turn will be in the previous order. In the old fashion, players entering the playoffs had to draw a lot.

On February 21, Max Homa and Toy Finau added another battle to determine the Genesis Invitational championship for the same -12 score after 72 standard holes. At that time, Finau finished first and had to wait for Homa to finish the round to know who hit first in the first sub hole – hole 10, par4 of the Riviera, par71. After the lottery, Homa gave his head.

If the PGA Tour applies new legislation, Finau retains this priority. Finally, Finau lost the match against Homa in the second sub hole – hole 14, par3. This hole, Finau plays first but hits the sand trap, and Homa plays later, goes green.

In 2001, the Riviera hosted the Nissan Open – the predecessor to the Genesis Invitational and recorded the largest playoff in PGA Tour history. That year, as many as six golfers won for the championship, starting at hole 18 in waterlogged ground from heavy rain. At the bottom hole three days earlier, the players, after being played, can go green with a short iron. But in the playoff, they had to use a wooden stick in the second. And through just one extra hole, Robert Allenby eliminated the remaining five opponents with a birdie score from the green phase with a third wooden stick, then added a putt 1.5 meters from the hole.

Due to Covid-19, the WGC-Workday Championship with a prize fund of 10.5 million USD was held in Florida from February 25-28, replacing the WGC-Mexico Championship in the country of the same name. Parallel to this award is the Puerto Rico Open with a bonus fund of three million USD.
