Jason Day won a four-man playoff Sunday in the Farmers Insurance Open with a par on the second extra hole at tough Torrey Pines.

Day only made the playoff by a couple of feet. His chip from behind the par-5 18th green in regulation came out hot and was headed down the hill for the water when it stopped at the yellow hazard line. He made par for a 2-under 70.

J.B. Holmes chose to lay up on the 18th and made par for a 72. They were joined in the playoff by Scott Stallings (69) and Harris English, who birdied the last hole for a 72.

Day and Holmes birdied the 18th in the playoff. On the par-3 16th, Holmes went long and missed a 15-foot par putt.
