JASON Day sank an 18-inch birdie putt on the sixth playoff hole to beat Alex Noren and win the Farmers Insurance Open in front of empty grandstands on No.18 at Torrey Pines on Monday morning.

Day and Noren had to return after grinding through five playoff holes Sunday before it got too dark to continue.

Day teed off at 8:04am and sank the winning putt 13 minutes later, his fourth birdie on the par-5 hole in the playoff.

His victory was accompanied only by the sounds of camera shutters and cheers from Day’s family members. Spectators weren’t allowed in because organisers said they didn’t have time to arrange for security.
