Adam Scott, the 54-hole leader, just buried a 9-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole to force a sudden-death playoff with Ryan Moore to determine the winner of the EDS Byron Nelson Championship.
Moore, the only golfer in the final four groups to break par in today's final round, capped a closing 68 with birdies at No. 16 and No. 17 to take a one-stroke lead to the final tee. Moore posted a par, forcing Scott _ who birdied two of his last three holes _ to respond with his closing birdie to force a playoff.
It marks the fifth playoff in the last decade at the Nelson and the 16th since the tournament was re-named in Nelson's honor in 1968. In the most recent Nelson playoff, Sergio Garcia won on the first playoff hole in 2004.
As things stand, the co-leaders will head back to the 18th tee for the first playoff hole.
