Quicken Loans National tracker

6:43 p.m.: Kyle Stanley has won the Quicken Loans National with a short par putt on the first playoff hole at 18. Charles Howell III was in trouble after his approach shot and couldn’t make his lengthy par putt to put the pressure on.

6:30 p.m.: Now it’s official. Charles Howell III and Kyle Stanley are in a two-man playoff, set to begin shortly. Howell III has not won since 2007 and Stanley’s last victory came at the 2012 Waste Management Phoenix Open. Sudden-death format will begin on 18, then go 18, 17, 18 if necessary.

6:00 p.m.: Charles Howell III nearly drained a 25-foot putt for birdie on 18 to grab the solo lead, but settles for a tap-in par. He and co-leader Kyle Stanley are both in at 7 under. David Lingmerth still has a chance at 5 under through 15, but a playoff is looking extremely likely.

5:50 p.m.: Well, that didn’t last long. We’re underway again and Sung Kang is making a mess of the par-3 17th after a short birdie miss at 16. His chances are gone. Laird falls back to 5 under with bogey at 18, meaning Stanley and Howell III now lead the field by two shots as they finish up on 18.

5:32 p.m.: Play has been suspended in round 4 amid an absolute deluge. Doesn’t appear to be any lightning for now, but raining way too hard to play. Unfortunately, Kang missed a birdie putt just moments ago which would have put him into a tie for the lead at 7 under. He stays at 6 under for now, with Kyle Stanley and Charles Howell III in the lead at 7 under through 16.

5:05 p.m.: Looking less likely that Fowler will find himself in a playoff now. Stanley, Kang and Howell III co-lead at 7 under, one ahead of Martin Laird and two ahead of Fowler. Pretty much a four-man race at this point, as Laird has three holes to play and is still right in the mix.

4:35 p.m.: The door is open, but no one has proved capable of seizing the opportunity yet. Kang, Stanely and Lingmerth co-lead at 6 under and Rickie Fowler just birdied 18 to finish the week 5 under. Given the way this thing has gone, he’s going to want to stick around for a potential playoff. Martin Laird and Charles Howell III are also one off the lead at 5 under. No telling how this thing is going to finish.

3:55 p.m.: Our prediction of a wild afternoon has come to fruition. Sung Kang and Kyle Stanley now co-lead at 6 under and U.S. Amateur champ Curtis Luck is 1 shot back. Lingmerth (-5) and Summerhays (-5) are struggling a bit but by no means out of it. Buckle up.

2:40 p.m.: After a bogey at 1, Lingmerth briefly fell out of the solo lead. He just bounced back with birdie at 2 and again holds the outright lead at 7 under.  Spencer Levin holding steady at 5 under through two. Something tells us this is going to be a wild afternoon.

2:11 p.m.: The final group is on the course. Let’s see if Lingmerth can close this thing out. Charles Howell III is now just three shots off the lead after a birdie at 1 to get to 4 under for the week. Marc Leishman is also making moves, he’s 3 under today through nine and four shots off the lead.

1:00 p.m.: Leader David Lingmerth tees off in just about an hour. He holds a one-shot lead over Daniel Summerhays at 7 under, and this is still anyone’s tournament with Spencer Levin, Sung Kang and 2016 U.S. Amateur champ Curtis Luck lurking. Rickie Fowler is seven shots off the lead and at even par through three holes in Round 4.
