Moore edges Woodland for CIMB title

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 at 14-under 274 after 72 holes 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 hours of delays Sunday.

The tournament was an official PGA Tour event for the first time. Moore received a two-year 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.

Woodland settled for a 3-under 69, and Moore had a 70.

Kiradech Aphibarnrat and Chris Stroud finished a stroke back.
