McIlroy Wins Money List

Italian teenager Matteo Manassero has won the Singapore Open and ensured Rory McIlroy becomes Europe's youngest money list winner since 1980.

Manassero holed a 12 foot eagle to beat Louis Oosthuizen in a dramatic play-off.

McIlroy, who's already taken the PGA Tour crown in America, finished third with a closing six-under-par 65.

"I left myself a little bit too much to do to win, but it was a great way to finish off the round and the tournament," said the Northern Irishman, who still has his defence of the Hong Kong Open and the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai to come this next fortnight.

19-year-old Manassero is the first teenager to win three titles on the European Tour.

Fourth place was taken by Dane Thomas Bjorn, with Italian Francesco Molinari and Australian Adam Scott, a three-time champion at the event, joint fifth.
