Southport, England (Sports Network) - Bernhard Langer and Mark Wiebe posted matching pars on a pair of playoff holes at the Senior British Open on Sunday before play was suspended for darkness.

There were a couple of weather delays earlier in the day that lasted over two hours total, causing the playoff to be held in near darkness as the sun was setting.

The conclusion of the season's fourth major will start at 3:00 a.m. (ET) Monday.

Langer, who won this event in 2010, seemed in line for his 19th career Champions Tour title and third career major victory on the senior circuit when he made his way to the 18th hole with a 2-stroke lead, but posted a double bogey on the hole to fall into a tie with Wiebe at 9-under-par 271 and force the playoff.

Langer's gaffe resulted in him carding an even-par 70 during his final round at Royal Birkdale Golf Club, while Wiebe carded a 4-under 66 to meet Langer atop the leaderboard.
