BILOXI, Miss. (AP) — Scott Parel made a 12-foot par putt to match Kevin Sutherland on the fifth hole of a playoff before play was suspended because of darkness Sunday night in the PGA Tour Champions’ Rapiscan Systems Classic.

They will finish Monday morning at Fallen Oak.

Sutherland, the second-round leader, missed a 2-foot par putt on the second extra hole — the third straight hole he missed putts for the victory. He failed to make a birdie in all 23 holes, closing with a 3-over 75 to match Parel at 7 under.

Parel made an 18-foot birdie putt on the par-4 18th in regulation for a 69.

Sutherland had his best chance for birdie on 18 in regulation, but his 6-footer went left. He missed a 15-footer on 18 to open the playoff.

After playing the four par-5 holes in 5 under with an eagle and three birdies in an opening 65, Sutherland was 3 over on the long holes in the second and third rounds.

Billy Andrade finished a stroke out of the playoff, three-putting the 18th for his second bogey in the last three holes.
