KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, Oct. 27 (UPI) -- Ryan Moore and Gary Woodland tied at 14-under-par for 72 holes and will meet in a playoff Monday to decide the PGA Tour's CIMB Classic in Malaysia.

Weather delays totaled about 4 hours Sunday and Moore made a par putt at the 72nd hole in near darkness, forcing Monday's the sudden-death playoff with Woodland.

Moore, the third-round leader, was 2-under 70 in the final round while Woodland shot 3-under 69. They are at 14-under 274.

Kiradech Aphibarnrat, who also shot 70 Sunday, tied Chris Stroud (71 Sunday) for third at 13-under while Aaron Baddeley, with a final-round 66, wound up fifth at 12-under.

Moore is looking for his third PGA victory. His most recent was in October 2012 at the Shriners Hospital for Children Open. Woodland, who won in August at the Reno-Tahoe Open, is also seeking his third PGA Tour title.

They were in the final group of the day along with Stroud, who dropped back with a double-bogey 6 at the ninth hole. He stayed close with three birdies over Nos. 10-14 but never caught Moore and Woodland.

Woodland started strong with a three birdies in the first five holes and was even the rest of the way with two birdies and two bogeys. Moore had two birdies and a bogey on each side Sunday, with birdies at 14 and 16 putting him at 14-under.
