Hughes Mackenzie was the third player to have a putt to win the RSM Classic. He missed, and four players will have to return in the morning to finish the playoff.

The final PGA Tour event of the year had to go one more day when a sudden-death playoff that began with five players lasted only two holes before it was too dark to continue at Sea Island.

The odd man odd was Billy Horschel, the highest-ranked player of the group. Horschel missed his birdie attempt by a fraction of an inch on the 18th hole in the playoff. Then he missed a routine, 2-foot putt to stay in the game.

MacKenzie, Blayne Barber, Camilo Villegas and Henrik Norlander had to return Monday morning. The winner gets in the Masters.
