Micheel birdied the last two holes he played to finish 3 under par, and on this course, a birdie is almost like skipping a hole.
He settled for a tap-in birdie to put the pressure on Mallinger, who made a 5-footer setting up the final scramble.
In the final round, he shot 71, including a dramatic chip-in birdie on No. 16, and beat Chris DiMarco on the first hole of a playoff.
He rolled in birdie after birdie after birdie; DiMarco appeared to be rolling over once again during a major.
But rather than trying to fly his approach to the green, he played a low punch and rolled the ball within birdie range — a skillful shot and practiced patience that eluded Mickelson not long ago.
He didn't know he had to make it to tie, but he figured he had to get it at least within birdie distance.
Facing certain defeat, Allenby holed a 15-foot birdie from the fringe to halve the hole and stay alive.
American Paul Azinger made an amazing birdie from the 18th green-side bunker to prolong the contest Sunday.
He was correct as he rolled in a 15-footer for birdie from the fringe to put a smile on his face Friday as he headed to the final 36 holes nicely positioned just two shots out of the lead in the 131st
Waldorf missed by an inch a 35-footer for birdie from the fringe at No. 18 which would have given him the outright lead.
