Monday Playoff for Woodland & Moore at CIMB

Gary Woodland and Ryan Moore both finished at 14-under par at the CIMB Classic in Kuala Lumpor, Malaysia. Forcing a playoff to see who will be crowned champion at the Kuala Lumpor Golf and Country Club.

The final round of the championship was delayed twice from inclement weather, saw darkness creep in on play and was suspended due to the darkness. Meaning the sudden death playoff between Woodland and Moore will have to wait.

The playoff will begin at 7:30 p.m. (EST) in the United States.

With a one-shot lead, looking for his second victory in 12 weeks, Woodland saw Moore convert a birdie on the par-4 16th to draw even with him.

"It was just tough, said Woodland after his round. "We'll get a good night's sleep and come back tomorrow."

Woodland had a shot to put the tournament away during regulation play, with a 12-foot birdie putt on No. 18. That bid came up just short as his ball missed on the low side, sliding across the front of the cup.

"I hit it where I wanted to. It just broke a little more than I thought," said Woodland on his putt on No. 18.

Moore, needing to get up-and-down for par to force a playoff with Woodland, laid up on No. 18 in thick, wet rough -- Which he did successfully getting it on the putting surface to within four feet of the cup. Which he then made to force the playoff.

"Less than fantastic I'll tell you that much. Any time you face a putt you know you have to make, it makes it that much harder." Responded Moore when asked how he felt over that four-footer on No. 18. "You just try and step up and hit it just like you normally do."

So we head to extra holes in Malaysia in a sudden-death playoff to decide the CIMB Classic.
