7:39PM ET

If you aren’t watching the Bob Hope, now would be a good time to tune in.  A three man playoff is underway.

Jhonattan Vegas could have won the tournament with a par on the par-5 18th, but made bogey via a 3-putt.

Bill Haas and Gary Woodland round out the playoff.

7:41PM ET

Haas and Woodland are in the rough on #18, Vegas is in the fairway.  The playoff will be played on holes 18-10-18 etc.

7:46PM ET

Vegas’ 2nd shot to the par-5 is way left.  Next to the grandstands.

Woodland’s 2nd shot nearly hit the stick and went a little long through the green.

Haas had a sidehill lie from 250 out and barely cleared the water.

Woodland is looking the most favorable after all players have hit two shots.

7:52PM ET

Vegas hit an incredible shot which was nearly impossible to get close.  He hit the hole and nearly made eagle.

Haas will make par.

Woodland’s chip was so-so.  He could have chipped in for eagle or at least left a tap in birdie.  It is no tap in.

7:53PM ET

Woodland makes the birdie putt.  Vegas must make to extend the playoff.

Vegas barely makes his birdie putt to extend the playoff, which is now two players.

Hole #10 is next.

7:55PM ET

Oh no.  Vegas hit driver into the water hazard on #10.  Woodland then pulled 3-metal and put it in the fairway.  He has a 7-iron to the green.  Advantage Woodland.

6:08PM ET

Oh man.  Woodland hit the right trap and is now looking at bogey.  Vegas hit the green and has a chance to WIN with about a 15 footer.

6:09PM ET

VEGAS WINS by making an incredible par after finding the water hazard.  He had about a 15 footer to win and drained it.

The nerves were causing him to be very shaky, but he came through.

Bravo.  Bravo.
