The Australian and Swede posted birdies on the first play-off hole but Palmer could only muster a par to exit the sudden-death format early, before Day and Noren went stroke-for-stroke on the next three.

The spotlight had been all on Woods as the 14-time major champion wrapped up his first US PGA Tour tournament in a year with an even par 72 for a 72-hole total of 285.

"I could barely see the last putt, but it's very enjoyable".

Noren subsequently missed the green with his second shot but made par to join Day, while Palmer made birdie to make it a three-way play-off.

It was his 11th PGA Tour victory and he moved to ninth in this season's FedExCup standings. I'm going to try to get some rest tonight, and I'll play all day tomorrow to try and get the win.

5- 18th hole: Day finds a fairway trap and Noren hits the green in two, applying the pressure.

"I was up all night last night just thinking about getting the next win, number 11, and you know I'm really happy".

I'm very thankful for my whole team. Noren, who had a one-shot lead at the start of the final round, closed with a 73.
