“I knew it wasn’t going to come easy for me. I had a great, great warm-up this morning, flushing the ball. It just got a little tough out there for me. I just dug in there. Obviously I would have loved to seal it off with a couple of pars coming in, but sometimes it just tests you. A great week from Benjamin. He could have just snatched it off me on the first two holes, as well, and just very grateful for how it turned out for us this week.”

The Austrian, who was runner-up at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open just seven days ago, was not to be denied for a second consecutive week as he triumphed over Hebert with a par on the third extra hole at The Renaissance Club.

“I wasn’t in this tournament eight days ago. You know, I had a great week in Ireland and sealed my spot, and what a week this is. Just take a lot of confidence out of the last two weeks into the final major this year.


“I’ve always enjoyed coming to the links, Scottish links, and I’ve had nice success here in Scotland and it’s just really, really nice to be able to stand here with the trophy at the end of the day. It was a long day, but somehow managed.”

The 33-year-old held a two-stroke lead after 54 holes, but Hebert set the clubhouse target on 22 under par after a stunning nine under par round of 62. Wiesberger then joined him on that total with his round of 69.

The pair parred the first two play-off holes, but Wiesberger tapped in for par from four feet to win his second title of the season after Made in Denmark in May and move to the top of the Race to Dubai Rankings presented by Rolex.

There was a consolation prize for Hebert who earned his place at next week’s Open Championship at Royal Portrush. He will be joined in Northern Ireland by Nino Bertasio and Andrew Johnston, who carded the lowest round of his European Tour career, after they finished in a share of fourth place.

“I was looking for The Open spot, for sure I was chasing this spot, so I’m happy, first,” said Hebert.

“I’m very happy as next week will be my first Major Championship as a professional. It was a goal for me actually this season to play in a Major. I played in The Open in 2008 but I was an amateur. It was a long time ago”

Frenchman Romain Langasque finished third on 20 under par, one stroke ahead of Bertasio, Johnston, 2016 Open Champion Henrik Stenson, Italy’s Andrea Pavan and American Andrew Putnam.
