Sometimes four rounds of golf isn’t enough to crown a champion at The Open, which means a playoff is needed.
It guarantees tension, excitement, drama and golfing brilliance when two (or sometimes more) players play the extra holes in order to get their hands on the Claret Jug and write their name in the history books.
These are five of the best playoff moments in Open Championship History. Featuring: Tom Watson, Paul Lawrie, Ernie Els, Padraig Harrington and Zach Johnson.
