Kevin Kisner: Has anyone ever lost three PGA Tour playoffs in a season?

Kevin Kisner found himself in a sudden-death playoff at The Greenbrier Classic for his third time going to overtime on the 2014-15 PGA Tour season.

Unfortunately, Kisner's tee shot to the par-3 18th, the first playoff hole at the Old White TPC, went long and knocked him out of contention for his first PGA Tour win. Kisner is now the only active PGA Tour player to have ever lost three sudden-death playoffs in a single year. There are four other active players who have been in three sudden-death playoffs in a season, and all of them went 1-for-3.
