Rory McIlroy may have been denied the Wells Fargo Championship by American Rickie Fowler but there was still good news for the Ulsterman as he returned to the top of the rankings.
Fowler, DA Points and McIlroy all finished on 14-under, but it was the young American who eventually secured his maiden PGS Tour title after a superb shot on the first play-off hole.
The trio played the 18th and Fowler immediately piled on the pressure as he hit his iron shot to within four feet.
Points and McIlroy both managed to par the hole, but Fowler claimed the birdie to win lift the trophy after a superb day of golf.
However, there was some consolation for McIlroy as he once again overtook Luke Donald at the top of the rankings for the third time in as many months.
The Northern Irishman won the title two years ago at Quail Hollows and did have a chance to win the trophy again only for a costly mistake on the 17th meant he would have to go into a play-off.
