Last Year: Jason Day claimed his third PGA Tour victory and started a memorable season when he made a routine par on the second playoff hole to turn back J.B. Holmes, who hit his approach over the green and made bogey. Both remained in the four-man playoff with birdies on the first extra hole, where Harris English and Scott Stallings made pars. The Aussie, who won four more times in 2015, including his first major in the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits, sank a 7-foot birdie putt on the 15th hole and a 47-footer on No. 16 while closing with a 2-under-par 70. On No. 18, he got up and down for a clutch par after missing the green and nearly going into the water. English holed a 4-foot putt to complete a 72 and get into the playoff, while Stallings closed with a 68 that included a 32-foot eagle putt on the 13th hole. Holmes also had a 72.

Last Year: Rookie Sei Young Kim of South Korea sank a 4-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole to turn back Sun Young Yoo, also of South Korea, and another rookie, Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand. The 22-year-old Kim, who claimed four of her five Korean LPGA Tour victories in playoffs, sank a 3-foot putt on the final hole of regulation for her sixth birdie of the round to close out a 5-under-par 68. Jutanugarn eagled the fourth hole and added four birdies in her 69, while Yoo, the 2012 Kraft Nabisco Championship winner, made a costly bogey on the 16th hole for her only miscue in a 70.
