Sergio Garcia, Rickie Fowler and Kevin Kisner went into a three-hole play-off for the Players Championship on Sunday after an extraordinary finish to the final round at Sawgrass.

Fowler looked to have provided the perfect response to the players who had labelled him and Ian Poulter the most overrated on the PGA Tour in an anonymous poll with a sensational closing 67.

The 26-year-old had been one over for his round after a bogey on the 10th, but played the last six holes in six under par, taking a tournament-record 11 shots to finish birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie.

That gave Fowler a two-shot lead after long-time leader Garcia had bogeyed the 14th, where he took off his shoes to play his second shot from a cart path, but the drama was far from done.

Garcia two-putted the 16th for birdie and then holed from 45 feet across the 17th green for another, before Ben Martin birdied the 15th, 16th and 17th and Kisner picked up shots on 16 and 17 to also reach 12 under.

Martin missed out on the play-off after a bogey on the 18th before Kisner agonisingly missed from 11 feet for a winning birdie on the same hole.
