What If There's a Tie at Torrey?

Well, the playoff would be 18 holes the next day. At golf.com, the PGA Tour Confidential columnist disagrees with the sentiment and backs up my proposal for finishing off the Players:

The 18-hole playoff is obsolete, not to mention anticlimactic. Times have changed, but the USGA hasn't. They need to quit being so obsessed with tradition. The four-hole playoff used at the British Open is genius. I don't like sudden death, but I like the four-hole format. That's what they should use at the Players too — play 15, 16, 17 and 18 instead of going to sudden death and letting a gust of wind decide the winner, as it did with Garcia and Paul Goydos last month.
For the record, I think the US Open is the major championship that is LEAST likely to produce a playoff. Why? Because I think it is more likely that someone will choke away the chance (Mickelson at Winged Foot) to get into a playoff at the US Open than birdie your way into a playoff.

The USGA is just being plain silly, rather than stubborn now. They eliminated the 18 hole playoff for the women's Open. That and their using sudden death after 18 holes are complete(Irwin beat Donald in 90, Els beat Roberts in 94 and Pak over Chiusporin in 98 that way after 18 was done and over) is at the very least inconsistent. Why is sudden death good enough after 18 playoff holes if it wasn't when 72 was up. I agree, 4 hole playoff is the best.
