CRANS-MONTANA, Switzerland – American David Lipsky won the European Masters in a playoff on Sunday, getting par 4 on the first extra hole to beat Graeme Storm of England.
The 26-year-old Lipsky reached the 18th green via a fairway bunker and thick green-side rough before sinking a 2-foot putt. He earned a career-best €383,330 ($497,000) payday for his second victory.
Storm, the overnight leader, sliced his tee shot wide right and made a bogey-5.
Lipsky, who plays on the Asian Tour, shot 65 in the final round to tie with Storm, who carded 68. Both had 18-under totals of 262 on the 6,848-yard (6,262-meter) Severiano Ballesteros course in the Swiss Alps.
Another American, Brooks Koepka, and Tyrrell Hatton of England tied for third trailing by one shot after shooting 67 and 65, respectively.
