Thailand's Pavit Tangkamolprasert has won the Macau Open, prevailing over India's Anirban Lahiri in a tense playoff.

Pavit birdied the final hole of regulation for a 7-under-par 64 to finish tied with Lahiri (65) at 16-under 268 at the Macau Golf and Country Club on Sunday.

The 27-year-old Thai then sealed the win with another birdie on the par-5 18th after Lahiri found the water hazard with his second shot and finished with a bogey.

Taiwan's Chan Shih-chang shot a 65 to finish tied for third with co-overnight leader Chikkarangappa S. of India, who had a 68.

Both finished three shots off the pace.

Ian Poulter, who led after the first round, finished tied for 28th after a 73.
