Aphibarnrat won in Shenzhen in a playoff. I was for the 19-year-old Chinese lad today, even though I am a big Aphibarnrat fan. Fun event, with much of the field having a legitimate chance to win on Sunday.

Merritt bogies the first hole. Jordan fails to birdie No. 2, a par-5. The course looks to be playing easy today; many players under par.

Play is underway at Harbour Town. Playing off of both tees, leaders tee off in 40 minutes. Lahiri started bogey-birdie.
Just read where Rory has gotten Martin Kaymer, Luke Donald, and Patrick Reed to commit to the Irish Open. That event is going to be darn strong.
I hope everyone watched the ladies last night in Hawaii. S.Y. Kim, who started the day with a one-shot lead, had to chip in on the 72nd hole or it was over. She did it. In the playoff, she holed out her approach shot — an 8-iron over water to a sucker pin — to claim the victory. One of the most tense, tight endings I’ve ever seen. Inbee Park was her playoff victim, and I.K. Kim, my favorite, finished one out of the playoff.
