SEBASTIEN SODERBERG WINS EUROPEAN MASTERS
Sweden’s Sebastian Soderberg held his nerve to claim his first European Tour title in a dramatic five-way play-off at the European Masters in Switzerland.
Soderberg, 28, finished tied at 14 under alongside Rory McIlroy, Lorenzo Gagli, Kalle Samooja and overnight leader Andres Romero following Sunday’s final round at Crans-sur-Sierre.
The Swede then birdied the first play-off hole to win the red jacket.
England’s Tommy Fleetwood finished on 12 under in a tie for eighth.
Following his victory, Soderberg said: “It’s unbelievable. I’ve dreamt of playing on the European Tour – even better doing it this way.
“I was more nervous in the beginning than I was towards the back nine. I got on a good run and the ball kept going in. Just playing with Rory, so many people around, playing with a guy like that adds heat to it right away.
“I proved to myself that I can play out here. I didn’t really know that I was ready to win, I had a terrible start to the season and I felt like I was just trying to make my way into the top 110 and keep my card for next year. It’s just a surreal way to do it.”
