That includes one from just off the green (20'2") at the par-4 ninth. Walking on the 18th tee box at 6-under, Brown proceeded to land his approach in the greenside bunker, 30 feet from the hole. From there, he took four swipes and carded a double-bogey 6 to lose his early lead.

After a 12-under 60 on a rain-delayed Sunday, this duo had the momentum, but may have used up all their magic in regulation. They had a few good chances today, Kisner missing a 7'6" birdie attempt on the second playoff hole being the closest call. A win would have been the second on TOUR for both Kisner and Brown. Instead, they will share the 3rd-and-4th place paycheck ($411,800 each) and FedExCup points (162.5 each), although no OWGR points will be credited. Next up for the duo is the Wells Fargo Championship at Eagle Point Golf Club as both are currently committed.

The 2013 Puerto Rico Open champion started his week with rounds of 67-68=145 before today's navigation of Coco Beach Golf & Country Club. With preferred lies in effect, Brown would have loved to hit more than eight fairways today, but still managed to land 13 greens. His biggest asset is always the flat stick and this week is no different as he's swallowed just two bogeys despite ranking T35 in GIR percentage. The Augusta, Georgia, native will have the benefit of knowing he can get the job done at this venue, although he co-led after 54 holes back in 2013 before styling a 2-under 70 to beat the field by one stroke. Tomorrow, he'll play the role of hunter instead, as he starts three strokes off the pace.
