Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy sank a two-foot birdie putt at the first extra hole to win the WGC-HSBC Champions in a playoff with American Xander Schauffele in Shanghai on Sunday.

After defending champion Schauffele birdied the par-five 18th of the final round to tie in regulation, McIlroy prevailed in sudden death.

He struck a towering four-iron from 225 yards to within 20 feet of the pin to set up a two-putt birdie that Schauffele, whose drive had ended in the rough, could not match with his 10-foot birdie opportunity.
