South Africa's Dylan Frittelli sunk a birdie putt on the first extra hole to beat India's Arjun Atwal in a play-off to win the Mauritius Open.
It was a second European Tour win of the year for the 27-year-old, who will be chasing an end-of-year top 50 world ranking in next week's Joburg Open in order to qualify for all next year's Major tournaments. He started the week in 67th.
Atwal, 44, had been top of the leaderboard from the start of the tournament, after carding a course-record 62 in Thursday's first round, and had a chance to win on the last hole on Sunday.
His eagle putt, however, lipped out forcing him to settle for a birdie and 68 for the round as he and Frittelli finished with a 16-under-par score of 268.
Frenchman Romain Langasque was third, two shots back, and Louis de Jager of South Africa fourth on a 13-under-par total of 271.
Former British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen had earlier lit up the final round as he hit two eagles and a hat-trick of birdies.
His challenge, however, ended with a wayward shot which found trees on the 16th, leading to a triple-bogey seven.
Meanwhile, home favourite Cameron Smith beat Jordan Zunic in a play-off to claim a dramatic victory at the Australian PGA Championship.
The 24-year-old was in his home state of Queensland at RACV Royal Pines Resort and he delighted the crowds, recovering from a bogey on his 72nd hole to get up and down for par twice during the play-off.
A bogey on the second extra trip up the 18th from Zunic handed Smith victory after the two had done battle throughout an enthralling morning on the Gold Coast.
Smith entered the final round three shots behind fellow Australian Zunic but had caught his playing partner by the 10th and a birdie on the 17th handed him the initiative with one to play.
A miss from five feet on the final green meant extra holes were needed but Smith held his nerve to claim his first professional solo triumph after winning the Zurich Classic of New Orleans alongside Swede Jonas Blixt in May.
Australian Adam Bland finished a shot outside the play-off at 17 under, three shots ahead of countrymen David Bransdon and Marc Leishman.
England's Nathan Kimsey carded a closing 65 to finish at 10 under, four shots clear of Sergio Garcia, who ended the year when he won his first major at the Masters with a 74.
