Matt Wallace beats Andrew Johnston in play-off to win Indian Open

The 27-year-old, who had found himself three over through eight holes of his opening round, told "I'm ecstatic".

In the play-off, after Johnston had laid up short of the lake, Wallace played a bold shot to the back of the green, which rolled 15 feet from the flag.

The 18th is a unsafe par five played over a vast expanse of water but Wallace never flinched with his second shot, striking a stunning long-iron to within just 10 feet of the hole. And he did, to collect the winner's share of $291,660.

The Argentine posted back-to-back double bogeys followed immediately by a further dropped shot in an especially torrid run on the back nine.

Wallace then dropped successive bogeys at the 16th and 17th, while Shubhankar saved a putt before his tee shot went wayward at the 17th and he ended up with a double bogey to slip.

Overall, very little worked for Shubhankar, who set the course record on Friday.

"I made a bad swing on the fifth hole and went out of contention" said Shubhankar. I didn't hit many great iron shots on the back nine but I knew where I stood.

"With the people that were coming up behind me, there were some real class players".

"Disappointments are part of the game". "I just want to have fun". This time, he was always in and around the mix and turned in his best card of four under 68 when it counted the most.

By sheer coincidence, if it was Phil Mickelson who played in the leaders' group last week with Shubhankar and won the title following a first-hole playoff, it was Wallace on this day! I just played some unbelievable golf. In the end, Matt Wallace who co-led with our local star, Shubhankar Sharma, held his own and even survived a play-off against a resurgent Andrew Johnston to win what was only his second European Tour title.
