    I don’t know exactly how many holes they need to play. But totally agree I’m not a fan of playing the same hole over and over. Play 18 to start a playoff but then go to hole 1 or 10.
    I remember being at that playoff with Pernilla and queen bee at the ANA, which ended up going to the next morning. They wasted so much time going back to the 18tee over and over. There was a pretty big crowd, which I’m sure most of them would not have followed to other holes. They could have easily played the 10th hole (or first hole) which runs parallel to 18 at Rancho mirage. At least that way it has regular golf flow. And not all these cart rides Through human traffic.
