The 72nd hole. Down one stroke. No pressure, right?

Not for Kevin Kisner. 

Teammates Jonas Blixt and Cameron Smith had a back-and-forth battle down the back stretch with Kisner and his teammate Scott Brown. At 25-under, and 94-feet 6-inches away from the pin, Team Kisner-Brown trailed by just one stroke on the final hole of the weekend.

Or so we thought.

Smith would sink the ensuing 18-inch birdie, tying the teams atop the leaderboard at the end of 72 holes.

It is safe to say that the new team-format at the Zurich Classic was an overwhelming success. The winner will be decided in a playoff when play resumes Monday morning.
