It's Sudden Death here at Turning Stone

Vaughn Taylor vs. Matt Kucher in overtime

As if blistery wet playing conditions weren't enough to spice things up here at the 2009 Turning Stone Resort Championship, a sudden death playoff cheated by darkness surely did the trick! Matt Kucher and Vaughn Taylor tied for the lead late this afternoon and thus found themselves in a sudden death playoff! They completed the first two playoff holes, #18 and #12 before the match was called due to darkness. The pair will resume on the final playoff hole, #13 at 8:30am on Monday. This makes the fourth Monday finish this year for the PGA Tour. Matt moves to within the top 25 on the PGA Tour Money List with his finish here at Turning Stone and Vaughn has achieved his goal of breaking into the top 125 to maintain his PGA Tour Card! Matt and I have something in common - it's my first PGA Tour Playoff too!!!! Make sure to tune into WATD 95.9 FM tomorrow morning for the Rob Hakala show (5 - 9am) 'cause I'll be calling in for a pre-playoff broadcast live from the Atuynote Golf Club here at the Turning Stone Resort!
