England’s Matt Wallace beat fellow countryman Andrew “Beef” Johnston in a play-off to win the Indian Open.

Johnston fired a bogey-free 66, which proved to be the lowest round of the day, to set the clubhouse lead at 11 under, and overnight joint-leader Wallace joined him on 11 under after carding a four-under 68.

The two Englishmen returned to the par-five 18th for the play-off, where Johnston elected to lay up and make par.

Wallace however, decided to attack the green with his second shot and then two-putted for birdie to secure his second European Tour title.

Wallace was without a top 20 finish in any of his previous nine competitions, so his Indian Open triumph will come as a welcome boost ahead of the Masters.

Home favourite and co-leader heading into the final round Shubhankar Sharma could only manage a final round of 74, meaning he finished seven shots back.

There was some good news for Sharma however, with the 21-year-old being invited to play in next month’s Masters.
