Alexander Levy edge out Ross Fisher at second playoff hole to claim victory at European Open

0

Alexander Levy holed a long-range birdie after earlier seeing his four-shot overnight lead disappear on the fourth and final day of the fog-delayed tournament.
Fisher fired a bogey-free round of 64 to take things all the way, capitalising fully on his opponent’s four dropped shots – two of which came on the final three holes – but was unable to hold his nerve in the sudden-death situation.

The pair exchanged pars on the first playoff hole at Bad Griesbach, before Levy claimed his third European Tour title with a 25-footer on his next visit to the 18th.

Martin Kaymer , a wildcard pick for Europe in next week’s Ryder Cup, finished in sixth spot, while Thomas Pieters was 14 strokes adrift of the pacesetters on five-under.
