Five sudden-death holes couldn’t separate the players before darkness saw play suspended late on Sunday, leaving the duo returning to play a fifth day at Torrey Pines.

Beginning at the par-five 18th, Noren found the first cut off the tee but saw his approach come up short and spin back into the water hazard, as Day drove right and elected to lay up from the rough.

Noren pitched on to the green with his fourth shot and two-putted for bogey, as Day fired his approach tight into the flag and nudged in the two-foot birdie putt for victory.
