Dustin Johnson needed a moment of brilliance to force an unlikely play-off on his way to victory at The Northern Trust.
Johnson went into the final round at the Glen Oaks Club three adrift of Open champion Jordan Spieth, who increased that cushion to five strokes with two birdies over the first five holes.
The world No 1 responded and posted three birdies in a four-hole stretch around the turn to pull the contest all-square, with the pair unable to be separated as they made their way to the last.
At the par-four 18th, Johnson elected to lay up after finding thick rough off the tee and saw his third shot finish some 15 feet from the pin.
With Spieth finding the fringe in two and lagging his long putt to less than three feet from the cup, Johnson knew he had to hole his par-save putt to take the contest to extra holes.
The 33-year-old then found the perfect weight and pace to guide his ball in off the right-edge, closing with an unlikely par before birdieing the first extra play-off hole to snatch victory.
