Inverness, Scotland – Jeev Milkha Singh of India birdied the first hole of his playoff with Francesco Molinari to win the Scottish Open after a final-round meltdown by local hope Marc Warren on Sunday.
Singh, the son of an Olympic 400-metre runner, holed from 10 feet on No. 18 to claim his fourth victory on the European Tour and earn himself a spot in next week's British Open in the process.
Both players had finished with 17-under totals of 271, with Singh shooting a 5-under 67 – the joint-lowest round of the day – and overnight leader Molinari returning a 72.
Warren had been three shots ahead at one point, but dropped four strokes in the final four holes to tie for third with Alexander Noren of Sweden (70) on 16 under. – Sapa-AP
