Luke Donald regained his crown as the world's number one golfer by winning the Transitions Championship in Florida.
Only two weeks after losing top spot to Rory Mcllroy, Donald shot a 66 and birdied the 18th to win the play-off.
Donald eventually won the play off against Jim Furyk, Sang Moon Bae and Robert Garrigus on the Copperhead Course in Innisbrook.
Donald's first shot on the 18th found the rough on the right, before he managed to pull off a classic second shot that took him to within 6 feet of the flag.
Garrigus hit a wonderful second shot right down the fairway, but from the resulting putt could only watch it drift narrowly wide of the flag. Donald then stepped up and calmly putted for victory.
Donald started the final days play three strokes adrift, but some fine play gave him a bogey free round.
Three successive birdie's between the 9th and 13th holes brought Donald to within a whisker of taking a share of the lead.
Both Furyk and Bae could've taken the title, but could only par the 18th taking the match into a play off which Donald won.
