Singh takes play-off victory in Scottish Open15/07/2012 - 18:04:21
Indian Jeev Milkha Singh was the unlikely winner of the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open in Inverness today after home hope Marc Warren blew a three-shot lead over the closing stretch.
Singh, who also qualifies for The Open, beat Italian Francesco Molinari - brother of 2010 champion Edoardo - with a 12-foot birdie putt at the first hole of a play-off, leaving a stunned Warren joint third with Swede Alex Noren one shot back.
The 31-year-old Glaswegian double-bogeyed the 15th, then bogeyed the next two for a one-under-par 71.
Singh had set an early target of 17-under with a 67 and overnight leader Molinari then forced sudden death by holing a nine-foot par putt on the last for a 72.
