On the first playoff hole, the par five 18th, after both laying up with their second shots, Donald played a majestic pitch to leave himself no more than six feet for birdie. Westwood attempted to follow him in but got too much backspin on his approach and it spun back into the water hazard. Westwood eventually chipped out from the drop zone and made double bogey leaving Donald to hole out for birdie winning the title and overtaking his countryman as the new World Number One.[5]
