Sergio Garcia won the rain-shortened Johor Open, closing with an 11-under 61 for a three-stroke victory in the Asian Tour's season-ending event.

The 32-year-old Spanish star finished at 18-under 198 at Horizon Hills for his second victory of the year and 24th international title.

He also won the PGA Tour's Wyndham Championship in August. Garcia had the lowest final round by a winner in Asian Tour history.

He birdied seven of the first nine holes to make the turn in 7-under 29, added birdies on 13 and 14 before a long rain delay, then returned to make it four in a row with birdies on 15 and 16. American Jonathan Moore also shot a 61 to finish second.

Thailand's Thongchai Jaidee was third at 14 under after a 65. Thailand's Thaworn Wiratchant won the Asian Tour money title.

He shot a 65 to tie for fifth at 11 under. John Daly finished with a 65 to tie for 15th at 8 under. South Africa's Ernie Els closed with a 72 to tie for 48th at 3 under.
