"This is pretty wild. I didn't really think this was possible going in today. I knew I had to shoot a really low number but a lot of things had to go my way and I'm thankful that they did.

"I'm pumping right now. It's a little bit surreal and it's hard to kind of calm yourself a little bit but you've just got to rely on all the shots that you hit and just go back to what you know."

Hovland closed with a 66 on Sunday finishing birdie-eagle-birdie to set a target of 12-under.

"I was fuming after the three-putt on 15 and thought that was it and I knew I just had to try to finish off well and get a nice position for the week. I rolled a really long one on 16 and then on 17 and, hey, we got a shot."

Englishman Richard Bland joined him at the top after carding a 68. Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy seemed like he would join the playoff until he found the water on the final hole and finished third at 11-under.

Five players, including Englishmen Sam Horsfiedld (67) and Tyrrell Hatton (72) tied for fourth at 8-under, as did 54-hole leader Justin Harding of South Africa (76).
