Question of the Day
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 3 1/2 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.
On Sunday, in a steady rain with shadows being cast by floodlights, Woodland had a chance to win on the 18th hole but missed a 10-foot birdie putt just wide by an inch.
Kiradech Aphibarnrat and Chris Stroud finished a stroke back.
SHANGHAI (AP) _ Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano chipped in for birdie on the tough 17th hole that became more important than he realized in winning the BMW Masters.
The 33-year-old Spaniard was flawless at Lake Malaren until it no longer mattered. The birdie gave him a three-shot lead going to the final hole, and Fernandez-Castano needed every one of them. He hit into two bunkers and had to make a 2-foot putt for double bogey to close with a 4-under 68 and win by a shot.
No matter. The seventh win of his career was one of the biggest for Fernandez-Castano.
It got him into the HSBC Champions next week in Shanghai, and made him a contender in the Race to Dubai at No. 4 in the money list. He also moves into the top 50 in the world, which is important for him as he plays a full PGA Tour schedule for the first time.
Fernandez-Castano finished on 11-under 277, one shot clear of Francesco Molinari (64) and Thongchai Jaidee (66). Luke Guthrie, the 23-year-old American making his first trip to Asia, lost the outright lead for the first time since Thursday when he missed a short par putt on the opening hole, and he never got it back. Guthrie closed with a 71 to finish fourth, two shots behind.
