With a par on the first hole of sudden death at the Najeti Hotels et Golfs Open in St. Omer, France, Simon Thornton defeated Tjaart van der Walt to secure his first victory on the European Tour.
Although he shared leads along the way, van der Walt was bidding for a wire-to-wire title. Thornton was one of three 54-hole leaders -- Baptiste Chapellan was the third -- before he and van der Walt closed with 1-under-par 70s to post 5-under 279 and force the playoff at Aa St. Omer Golf Club. In the head-to-head conclusion, the Irishman two-putted for a standard-issue par at the par-4 18th while South Africa's van der Walt found a greenside bunker out of which he failed to get up and down. (Chapellan faded to a T15 with a 77.) Thornton entered the week slotted 753rd in the Official World Golf Ranking. Today's breakthrough could bump him inside the top 300.
