Ryan Moore successfully defended his CIMB Classic title, shooting a 5-under 67 on Sunday for a three-stroke win over fellow-American Gary Woodland for the second-straight year.

Moore finished on 17-under 271 to become the first player to defend a title on the PGA Tour since 2013.

Sergio Garcia and Kevin Na shared a three-way tie for second with Woodland.

Woodland three-putted the last hole for a 67, reducing pressure on Moore as he claimed his fourth PGA Tour title.

Na led by two strokes early and was within a shot with two holes to play, but his hopes ended when he drove into a treetop on the 17th and took a double bogey.

Garcia did the same on the 10th hole and finished with a 69.
