Hole 1 - 18th - Par 5
Both players hit their drives into the left semi-rough at the first extra hole. Poulter lays up with an eight iron to the right of the water hazard. Karlsson plays a similar shot a little further up the fairway. Poulter's third is a stunning sand iron to just over 3 feet. Karlsson matches the shot, his effort from 75 yards finishing 4 feet way.  Karlsson holes, Poulter holes, back to the tee.

Hole 2 - 18th - Par 5
Both players left again off the tee. Poulter plays a good second with a five iron. Karlsson plays up slightly further leaving both players with pitches to the green like first time round. Bit of a mis-hit from Poulter for his third, comes up short and right but still a birdie putt. Karlsson virtually repeats his third shot of the first extra hole, 4 feet away again. Poulter incurred a one stroke penalty before his first putt and his putt for 5 came up short leaving Karlsson to hole for his birdie 4 and the title.
