Four-time overall winner Brooks Koepka picked up his first victory since February 2021 with a play-off win at the LIV Golf Invitational in Jeddah.
The 32-year-old American beat Peter Uihlein on the third extra hole after finishing on 12 under after the regulation 54 holes in Saudi Arabia.
Koepka has struggled with a number of injuries in recent years.
“The last two years haven’t been fun. It’s been a long road. I’m super excited,” he told LIV Golf.
“I didn’t know if my career was over for half a second. So it’s nice to be able to come back and be able to win.”
The Jeddah tournament was the final individual competition of LIV Golf’s first year, with a season-ending team event to be held in Miami from October 28-30.
This event will see LIV Golf’s 12 teams compete for a prize pool of $50m (£45.2m).
Koepka and compatriot Uihlein found themselves in a four-way tie on the 18th, but the pair birdied to leave Sergio Garcia and Joaquin Niemann one shot behind.
On the third play-off hole, Uihlein found himself in a bunker before striking into the water to leave Koepka with two putts for the win.
“I scored two braces today and it’s hard to win when you do that. I gave myself a few chances, but obviously it’s disappointing,” said Uihlein.
Earlier this week, two-time big winner Dustin Johnson has been announced the winner of the first LIV Golf Championshipreceiving $18m (£16.2m) in prize money.
The LIV Golf Series, which offers a $25 million purse at its events, has caused a deep divide in the sport.
There are currently no World Ranking points offered to those who choose to join the series and LIV golfers have been banned from the PGA Tour.
Elsewhere, Spaniard Adrian Otaegui won the Andalusian Masters.
Otaegui successfully appealed against a ban on playing the Scottish Open in July and a £100,000 fine that had been imposed by the DP World Tour for participating in the inaugural LIV Golf event in June.
The 29-year-old has played in three of the first four LIV events, but it’s unclear if he will play any other tournaments in the Saudi-funded series.
