England’s Danny Willett beat Australia’s Marcus Fraser in a playoff at the BMW International Open to secure his first title on golf’s European Tour.
The 24-year-old sealed the victory on the fourth extra hole after both players had finished tied on 11-under-par 277 following the final round in Cologne, Germany.
Willett collects a check for 333,330 euros ($419,000). He had previously recorded 19 top-10 finishes on the European Tour without taking a title.
He was 1-over today, with Fraser shooting a 1-under round. Three players finished a shot back, Ireland’s Paul McGinley, Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano of Spain and England’s Chris Wood.
