Matteo Manassero 4    5    3

HOLE 1 - 18th - Par 5

With the players back to the 18th tee, a hole they both birdied in regulation to force extra holes, it was the same result after the first extra hole, although, it was not without drama. Both players found the fairway, with some 50 yards between them, and Matteo Manassero drilled an accurate three wood down to the rough just short of the green, while Louis Oosthuizen pushed his fairway wood and writhed in disgust as his ball found the top right tier. Manassero proceeded to clip a lovely little chip-and-run up adjacent to secure his four, while Oosthuizen raced his thirty footer some ten feet by, but he showed the calm of a true champion, rolling it into the heart on the way back for a four to take it back to the 18th tee once again.

HOLE 2 - 18th - Par 5
With Manassero having found the fairway once more, Louis Oosthuizen pushed his tee shot into the right hand fairway bunker and was forced to lay-up, while the Italian fizzed another three wood up just short of the green. Oosthuizen then pitched a wedge past the flag for his third, spinning it back to about six feet, as Manassero flopped one up some 15 feet short of the flag from the greenside rough, and when he missed for his four, the South African had a putt for the title. But it lipped out, and they head back to the 18th tee for a third time in this play-off.

HOLE 3 - 18th - Par 5
With both in the fairway once more, each player found the green, with Oosthuizen using the slope long of the green to help his ball back onto the left of the putting surface while Manassero did the same, but half the distance to the hole, with an excellent chance of eagle. And the Italian took advantage, rolling his putt for a three right in the heart from 12 feet after Oosthuizen had missed from long range, and Manassero picks up the third win of his career on The European Tour at just 19 years of age.
