Chinese Taipei's Lin Wen-tang edged a thrilling play-off against Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy and Italy’s Francesco Molinari to capture the UBS Hong Kong Open and secure his first victory on The European Tour.

The Asian Tour regular had failed to hole a birdie putt from six feet on the last during regulation play so entering a three way play-off with McIlroy and Molinari after the trio finished on 15 under par after 72 holes.

Molinari was eliminated at the first extra hole after making par while Lin and McIlroy both birdied, meaning the two would face off again.
