England’s Tommy Fleetwood today won his maiden European Tour title on the first hole of a sudden-death play-off with Scotland’s Stephen Gallacher and Argentina’s Ricardo Gonzalez in the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles yesterday.

Gallacher looked out of contention when he ran up a triple-bogey seven on the 11th in a roller-coaster final round, but bounced back with birdies at the 14th and 16th and then holed from 15ft for an eagle on the last to complete a 67.

Sheffield’s Danny Willett finished in a tie for 63rd after a final round of 76 left him three under par.
