Hideki Matsuyama defeated Rickie Fowler in a four-hole play-off to clinch the Waste Management Phoenix Open in Arizona.
Matsuyama and Fowler finished tied on 14-under-par at the end of 72 holes and there was nothing to separate them through the first three sudden death holes at TPC Scottsdale.
Fowler found the water on the 17th before missing a 10-foot par putt to clear the way for Matsuyama and he duly parred the hole to seal a second PGA Tour success.
Earlier, Fowler was two clear with two holes to play but he found water on the 17th before settling for a bogey. Matsuyama, meanwhile, birdied the penultimate hole to join Fowler at the top of the leaderboard and they matched each other's scores on the 18th to set-up a play-off.
They returned to the 18th where both players made par before both birdied the same hole. Next up was the par-four 10th where both made par to take it to a fourth play-off hole.
"This one hurts," Fowler said. "I felt like I had it. The hard part is having all my friends and family and grandpa and my dad who haven't seen me win."
Harris English carded a five-under-par 66 to finish third on 12-under, one clear of overnight leader Danny Lee, who shot a two-over 73.
Ireland's Shane Lowry recovered from back-to-back bogeys on the front nine to sign for a three-under 68, securing a share of sixth on nine-under.
