"So I would say it maybe has a different, maybe a little bit of a higher feel than some of the other events we play".
An made birdie at the par-4 17th to get to within one and watched both DeChambeau and Stanley make bogey at the 18th in the final group to create a three-way tie.
But after a bogey-birdie start to the back nine, five-times victor Woods dropped another shot at the par-four 13th where his drive went out of bounds and all but ended his hopes of an 80th PGA Tour victory. DeChambeau won his second career PGA Tour title and first since the John Deere Classic in July 2017.
For while it was mainly DeChambeau's prowess on the greens with his Sik Tour prototype 39-inch putter (an impressive 1.366 strokes gained/putting mark for the week plus the clincher on the second extra hole of overtime) that led to victory, when you talk about DeChambeau's equipment it always comes back to single-length irons. I was fortunate enough to get it back in play and get up and down on nearly every hole.
Kyle Stanley, tied for the lead after Friday's second round, shot a 2-under-par 70 Saturday and enters Sunday's final round tied for second place in the PGA Tour event.
"I knew he would make the birdie putt and that is why I tried to chip mine in, but then he hit a good putt, so I couldn t do anything".
Woods "played beautifully" Niemann, 19, highlighted his round with a 50-foot eagle putt at the par-five seventh.
But first let's recap how each player got into that playoff.
Medicare to Become Insolvent In 8 Years, Social Security in 16
Excluding federal debt payments, Medicare and Social Security together make up about 40 percent of total U.S. government spending. Taken together, the trust funds for the two programs are projected to be depleted in 2034, the same as previous year .
Mystery of ‘Planet Nine’ at the edge of our solar system deepens
These bumper car-like interactions can explain numerous anomalies out there, without needing to invent a huge Planet Nine.

Unseeded Yulia Putintseva took out another surprise big name, defeating 26 seed Barbora Strykova in straight set, 6-4, 6-3. It's different from all the other surfaces we play on all year long.
However, DeChambeau got it right at the third time of asking when he holed a 12-foot birdie putt to take the title on the second extra hole, narrowly beating An.
"I can't believe I did it today", DeChambeau told Peter Kostis of CBS Sports.
On the opening playoff hole he again lost his tee shot right and it bounced onto a bad side hill lie.
"All week, I've been hitting it really well", An said.
An managed to take DeChambeau to an extra hole in the playoff before a poor approach left him needing to hit a very hard flop shot to remain a chance.
He will now be able to accept unlimited sponsor invites for the rest of the season as he looks to earn enough non-member points to earn a TOUR card for next season.
The top five golfers in the standings remained in the same order, led by Masters champion Patrick Reed, followed by Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth and Brooks Koepka. He will keep that ranking going into the U.S. Open. He first played the Memorial in 2016 and was coming off four straight missed cuts. And next week he'll be at Shinnecock Hills for the U.S. Open, the one major that has eluded him. "Overall, tied second is pretty good".
US players will continue to gain points in 2018 at every non-opposite PGA Tour event, WGC and major through the 100th PGA Championship at Bellerive, concluding on August 12, 2018.
