Perthshire, Scotland (Sports Network) – Tommy Fleetwood birdied the first
playoff hole on Sunday to win the Johnnie Walker Championship.

Fleetwood (67) birdied the final hole of regulation to match Ricardo Gonzalez
(70) and Stephen Gallacher (70) at 18-under-par 270.

The threesome returned to the 18th on PGA Centenary Course at Gleneagles for
the extra session. All three found the fairway off the tee, then were near the
green with their second shots.

Gonzalez played his third to four feet and Gallacher’s bunker shot stopped
just outside Gonzalez’s ball. Fleetwood had a chance to win it then, but his
22-footer for eagle from the fringe slid by the hole.

Gallacher missed his short birdie effort on the left, then Gonzalez tried to
ram his in, but missed it right.

Fleetwood didn’t missed this time. He drained the short birdie try for his
first European Tour title.

Scott Henry (67) and Bernd Wiesberger (68) shared fourth place at minus-17.
Emiliano Grillo fired a 66 to end at 16-under 272. He was joined there by Paul
Waring (67) and Brett Rumford (68).
