ITALY'S Matteo Manassero won the 2012 Barclays Singapore Open after a thrilling sudden-death play-off.

The 19-year-old defeated 2010 British Open winner Louis Oosthuizen after his eagle putt on the third extra hole. He had split the first two additional holes with the South African, who had closed with a 67.

The duo were tied on 13-under 271 at the end of the fourth round.

Manassero, who finished on 69, had led by as many as three strokes at one stage. The youngster took home US$1 million (S$1.22 million) for his third title on the European Tour.
