KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, Oct. 27 (UPI) -- Ryan Moore rolled in a short birdie on the first playoff hole Monday, edging Gary Woodland to win the rain-delayed CIMB Classic in Malaysia.

Moore (2-under 70) and Woodland (69) each ended 72 holes at 14-under-par 274 Sunday, forcing a Monday playoff after darkness halted play following a pair of lengthy rain delays.

Woodland had a chance to win the event on the 18th hole, but missed a 12-foot birdie putt try while Moore carded a par from in front of the green.

On the playoff hole, Woodland found the rough on his lay-up shot while Moore put his approach within 4 feet of the pin.

Woodland again landed in the rough with his third shot and his chip stopped just a foot shy of the hole, leaving Moore free to drain a birdie for his third career PGA win.

Third-round co-leader Chris Stroud managed a 71 Sunday, ending in a tie for third place at minus-13 with Thailand's Kiradech Aphibarnrat (70).

Sole possession of fifth place at 12-under went to Aaron Baddeley (66), while Jimmy Walker (68) claimed sixth one shot further back.

Charles Howell III (68), Harris English (69) and Graham DeLaet (71) shared seventh place at 10-under.
