Palm Beach Gardens, Florida: Boo Weekley missed a 3-foot par putt on the final regulation hole of the Honda Classic, wasting a chance to win his first US PGA Tour title on Sunday. He'll have to wait until Monday to get a shot at redeeming himself. Weekley, Camilo Villegas, Mark Wilson and Jose Coceres - who all finished at 5-under 275 - went into a four-man playoff they couldn't finish before darkness fell on PGA National. "I was shaking," Weekley said. "I ain't going to lie about it. I mean, I was shaking like a leaf. ... I made a good stroke. I just hit it way too hard." Each player made par at the par-5 18th, the first playoff hole. Wilson's was spectacular, coming after he drove his tee shot into the mud and scrambling to the green before making a 30-foot putt to keep him in contention. Wilson, winless in 110 tour events, also made a 45-footer to save par at the 16th hole. And Coceres - who lost a playoff to Fred Funk in Mexico last week - had a birdie try that would have ended the tournament hit the lip and roll away. "I'm old. I'm 43," said Coceres, who is 1-1 in playoffs on tour, and is the only member of the final foursome here to go to extra holes in a tour event. "I couldn't see." Weekley then made a 3-footer to earn his trip to the second playoff hole, and Villegas followed with a tap-in from about two feet - the final shot before play was suspended. "We had no chance of playing any more holes," Villegas said. "It was real dark." Villegas and Coceres closed with 4-under 66s, while Weekley and Wilson shot 71s. Tripp Isenhour (67), Robert Allenby (68) and Steve Stricker (69) followed at 4 under, and Brett Wetterich and Daniel Chopra (71) were another shot back.
