  • Wallace pips Johnston in play-off to win Indian Open title

"I have learnt a lot and hopefully it will help me in future", said Wallace after the win.

Englishman Wallace retained his share of the lead with a four-under 68, but a bogey on the 16th proved costly as Johnston signed for a brilliant 66 for the second time this week to force an extra hole with the pair tied on 11 under for the tournament.

"I played great", Wallace said. Sharma, who broke the course record on Friday with an eight-under-par 64, saw his challenge disintegrate as he registered a three-over 75 which contained three double-bogeys, three further dropped shots and six birdies.

Sharma, 21, also led into the final round of last week's WGC event in Mexico but closed six shots behind eventual victor Phil Mickelson. "SSP (Chawrasia) held it for a couple of years and I am so happy to get my name on the trophy".

Like it was in round two, the focus, on Saturday, was once again on Shubhankar, who will surely be backed by a vociferous home crowd when he would go on the final day in search of his third win of the current season. That was tough to make up, especially when players like Matt Wallace, who played amazingly well on the last day, and Andrew Johnston, who was bogey-free on the final day.

Sihwan Kim finished third at eight-under-par while Pablo Larrazabal and Matthias Schwab were tied for fourth at seven-under-par.

Gurgaon: He can hit the low numbers nearly at will as he showed in two European Tour wins, but Shubhankar Sharma is equally able to stick it out when the chips are down.

"The birdie on 10th was fantastic as the hole was played off the back tees".

He ended up with a bogey in the former before producing a fighting par in the latter.

He closed with a 62 last month to win the Malaysian Open, making him the only two-time victor on the European Tour this season. I had a few bad swings at the start that put off my rhythm. However, disaster struck when he found the water on the fifth and the bushes on the seventh that led to two double-bogeys. "Thereafter, it was all about trying to catch up with the lead", he said. In the end, I just want to play good golf. But these things happen. They finished with 11-under totals of 277. I just took every hole as it came and played it as well as possible. "I'm excited about playing the match-play format after a long time at the WGC Match Play later this month". "I'll have to sit down with my coach Jesse Grewal and prepare my game-plan for the year's first Major which I have watched numerous times on television".
