Zach Johnson edges to victory over Tiger Woods in the World Challenge following a sudden-death playoff.

Zach Johnson has won the World Challenge by getting the better of Tiger Woods in a sudden-death playoff.

The American had trailed Woods by two shots heading into the final round, but the 37-year-old fought back brilliantly on Sunday to head into the final hole level with the world number one.

Johnson appeared to have blown his chance after finding the water with his approach to the 18th green, but after holing his fourth shot from the drop zone, Woods was forced to putt from four feet to take it to a playoff.

On the first extra hole, Woods found the sand with his second shot and he could not salvage his par, allowing Johnson to earn a memorable triumph in California to move up to ninth in the world golf rankings.
