Perhaps I'm biased, having just wasted 72 holes to lose on the 1st playoff hole (I am and I don't think I'd be fooling anyone if I stated otherwise), but maybe we could look at two sets of playoff rules. For regular tournaments I can swallow a sudden death playoff much more than I could in a Major. To me, after playing a Major and then losing on the first playoff hole would simply seem like a lottery and significantly reduces the "Major atmosphere" I think a Major tournament deserves. After all, these are supposed to be the 4 (unofficially 5) most coveted tournaments of the year. Could the Major tournaments -- err, should, the Major tournament tie-breaker playoffs be a 9 or 18 hole playoff?
