Second spot enough for Rory
Rory McIlroy lost to Rickie Fowler in a play-off for the Wells Fargo Championship, but still returned to golf's world number one spot.
The 23-year-old Northern Irishman was hoping to go back above Luke Donald in the standings courtesy of a victory at Quail Hollow Club on Sunday, but was forced into a sudden death play-off after finishing the tournament on 14 under alongside, Fowler and DA Points.
And, it was 23-year-old American, Fowler, who secured his first PGA title thanks to an impressive approach shot at the first extra hole which resulted in a four putt birdie on the 18th.
Afterwards McIlroy said: "It's a little consolation. I would rather win the tournament, but it's good.
"I want to try to play well for the next few weeks and solidify my spot at number one."
Meanwhile, England's world number three Lee Westwood fired the best round of the day with a fine six-under-par round of 66 to reach 11 under and was tied for fifth with Ben Curtis and Ryan Moore.
