How to use play off in a sentence?

  1. Danny Willett:

    Words can't describe it, you hope that when you win you have a bit of breathing space coming to the last. I've only won one before and it was a five-hole play-off so it was a bit more nerve-wracking, we stuck to our game-plan, we said we were going to go aggressive and see if we could shoot another low score and put it out of reach for the other players. Luckily we did and it was a really good win.

  2. Jason Alexander:

    The actress (Heidi Swedberg) is this wonderful girl, and … I love her! i couldn’t figure out how to play off of her. Her instincts for doing a scene — where the comedy was — and mine were always misfiring.
