The International Series headed to Macau and, on Sunday, we were treated to a thrilling conclusion that saw John Catlin claim a first professional title in three years. 

Just 24 hours earlier, Catlin fired the first 59 in the Asian Tour history and, starting the final day, it seemed the American would cruise to the title. However, LIV Golf's David Puig fired a 10-under 60 to set the clubhouse target at 23-under. 

Needing to birdie the last, Catlin just missed his short birdie putt to win outright, with the pair heading up the 18th for a playoff. As both made birdie at the first playoff hole, Catlin managed to birdie the second and claim the title in thrilling circumstances.
