Golf: Ryan Moore wins CIMB Classic in playoff
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia • Ryan Moore birdied the first hole of a playoff with Gary Woodland on Monday to win the CIMB Classic after an overnight wait caused by thunderstorms.
Moore made a 5-foot birdie putt on par-5 18th hole after Woodland was short with his chip from just off the green.
Woodland and Moore finished regulation at 14-under 274 on Sunday with darkness descending on the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club, forcing the playoff to be postponed until Monday morning. The players endured about 3Â½ hours of delays Sunday.
The tournament was an official PGA Tour event for the first time. Moore received a two-year PGA Tour exemption and a spot in the Masters.
The 30-year-old American won for the third time on the PGA Tour. He also won the 2009 Wyndham Championship and 2012 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.
In San Antonio, Kenny Perry made a 10-foot birdie putt on the first hole of a playoff with Bernhard Langer to win the Champions Tour's AT&T Championship. Perry and Langer each shot 5-under 67 to finish at 13-under 203 on TPC San Antonio's AT&T Canyons Course.
In Yangmei, Taiwan, Suzann Pettersen successfully defended her title in the LPGA Taiwan Championship. The Norwegian star closed with a 3-under 69 for a five-stroke victory over Azahara Munoz.
