Patrick Candley and a sweaty Lucas Glover head back to the 18th hole. The playoff is sudden death, so the first to beat the other on a hole wins.
The two will play the 18th hole twice if necessary, then move to the 11th if necessary and the 12th if necessary.
1st Playoff Hole: Patrick Cantlay’s T-shirt is in the water! It initially lands on grass, but runs into a pond along the left side of the runway. Wow!
Lucas Glover hits a 3-wood down the middle of the fairway, then hits a 9-iron on the approach to a safe spot on the green.
Cantlay drops and then hits his third shot to the same spot as Glover’s ball. Cantlay will putt for par, but Glover will putt first for birdie.
Glover’s birdie putt is six inches to the left but with good speed. Will press for parity. Cantlay’s par putt has good speed but JUST burns the right edge. Oh my god.
Lucas Glover is the winner of the FedEx St. Jude 2023.
Patrick Cantlay vs. Lucas Glover in a playoff to decide the FedEx St. Championship. Jude
Tommy Fleetwood leaves himself a birdie to make but moves right and bogeys the hole. He will finish at 14-under, at least one shot short.
Behind him, Lucas Glover just clears the water with a 3-wood off his tee at the 18th. Nah. It will have an approach from the fairway.
Glover uses a pitching wedge and gives him about the same putt as Fleetwood, good but not great. It didn’t turn from right to left like Glover wanted. Still, it looks like a playoff at worst.
It will be 22 feet, 6 inches for Glover to win the tournament. And… it leaves it about 18 inches short. Wow. He was on the right track.
Patrick Candley vs. Lucas Glover in the playoffs. This is the second year in a row that a playoff will decide the FedEx St. Louis Championship. Jude.
Lucas Glover, encryption engine
Lucas Glover didn’t make it easy in the stage, but some hot games helped him stay in the tournament.
Glover hit his tee shot on the 17th hole left and behind some trees, which affected his approach. With a creek about halfway between Glover and the hole, Glover just cleared it with a 5-iron that left him with a 60-yard wedge to get up and down. Glover holed to about 15 feet, a putt he made for another thrilling par to stay at 15-under and tie for the lead.
Glover is 8-for-9 hitting today. On the 18th. Fleetwood is on the way to the spare 18th. Jordan Spieth and Victor Hovland both had drives in the water. These two make up the team ahead of Fleetwood, who is in the team ahead of Glover.
Patrick Candley, Lucas Glover tied at 15 under
Patrick Cantlay is in the clubhouse at 15-under after a final-round 64. Lucas Glover moved to 15-under himself with a birdie on No. 16.
Tommy Fleetwood has the 18th hole to play and is at 14-under. Rory McIlroy finished his round with a 65 and finishes at 14-under.
Near misses for Lucas Glover and Patrick Cantlay
Lucas Glover, after two clutch putts to limit the damage on the final two holes, burns the tip for a 7-foot birdie putt on No. 15. At the same time, Patrick Candley ran a makeable birdie putt by the hole on No. 17. Cantlay’s lead remains one shot. Glover has the par-5 16th coming up.
Rory McIlroy also had a birdie putt to get to 1 over but missed.
Lucas Glover hits the water in a tournament-changing error
Lucas Glover made the mistake of playing 13 holes to avoid.
Glover missed his tee shot on the par-3 No. 14 hole, hitting short and right into the water. After a drop and a shot from the penalty box, Glover made a 30-footer for bogey and only made one shot. However, Patrick Cantlay birdies the par-5 No. 16 to take the lead.
So to clarify, as it is:
1: Patrick Cantlay -15 (16)
2. Lucas Glover -14 (14)
T3. Rory McIlroy -13 (16)
Tommy Fleetwood -13 (14)
Patrick Candley claws away a shot as Lucas Glover makes a great save
Patrick Candley birdied the No. 15 hole to move to 14-under, one shot behind Lucas Glover.
Glover saved par on No. 13 after his tee shot left an awkward stop. He had to play his ball hard while standing in the bunker, and his approach was quite short. Despite having no relief for an inbound ball in some rough, Glover played to about 15 feet and made the first putt. It was his biggest moment of the round so far.
FedEx Cup Playoff Update: Cam Davis vs. Mackenzie Hughes for Final BMW Championship Spot
Cam Davis’ strong weekend has him at 11-under to 16 and currently projected at No. 45 in the FedEx Cup standings. All Davis needs is to avoid a 2 or worse finish to reach next weekend. If he falters, Mackenzie Hughes will move from 51st to 50th.
By the way, Lucas Glover would move into 4th place in the FedEx Cup standings with a win. He would trail only Jon Rahm, Scottie Scheffler and Rory McIlroy with two tournaments remaining. Glover was 112th in the standings before last week’s win at the Wyndham Championship. He entered this week in 49th place, so he had to have two very good weeks to get to this point. He has so far.
Tommy Fleetwood immediately returns one
After the birdie, Fleetwood bogeyed No. 12 after playing a 5-wood off the tee and left it in the rough, setting up a second approach shot that was just short. Then he missed the 11-footer. Lucas Glover’s lead returns to the two-year mark.
Rory McIlroy joins Fleetwood and Patrick Cantlay at T2 with a birdie.
Tommy Fleetwood in a shot by Lucas Glover
Tommy Fleetwood makes a long birdie putt on No. 11 to move to 14-under, one shot off Glover’s lead. Glover just birdied No. 10 to stay at 15-under.
The pressure will increase in the next two hours.
The leader makes the turn
Lucas Glover makes another easy par on No. 9 and makes the round at 15-under, two shots ahead of Patrick Kandaley and Jordan Spieth.
Spieth, though, makes up on No. 10 after a good drive but a misguided approach and chip attempt. Now they are three back.
Lucas Glover looks very comfortable with the lead
Lucas Glover has a 2 shot lead after 7 holes over Jordan Spieth. Glover looks very comfortable, with a birdie and six pars on the card. The majority of these batches were relatively calm twins.
Rory McIlroy, Patrick Cantlay, Tommy Fleetwood and Viktor Hovland among those three shots back.
None of the leaders are going too low so far. Sahith Theegala has the best round on the course so far, 5-under for the day and 11-under for the tournament with two holes to play. He should be able to manage solid FedEx Cup points and a payday from a good final round.

Good morning from TPC Southwind
The leaders are about an hour off the tee in the final round.
Among the very early plays: Sepp Straka, last year’s playoff runner-up, ended a disappointing week with a 5-under 65. That’s the best round of the day so far, even among the players on the course. He would finish at 1-over for the tournament.
Chris Kirk and Sahith Theegala are off to a strong start and are 8-under for the tournament. Kirk has birdied three of the first five holes.
Watch Hideki Matsuyama and Cameron Young in relation to the FedEx Cup Playoff standings. Matsuyama needs a strong back nine to advance, while Yang can’t be far behind.
