“I'm so happy, ecstatic. Hard work again, pays off. Determination, grit, everything that I believe takes to win a tournament and I said it yesterday: You need to putt well to win, and I've found a way to get it done where I put myself under pressure in practise, and then it comes up trumps on a Sunday. Ball-striking can take you there, and then putting takes over."

“I think I have given Thomas (Bjørn) something to think about. That was the plan. I put myself under pressure, the last couple of days, as well, by saying I want to give him a headache. I've stepped up to the mark and I've shown him exactly what I'm about. If he doesn't pick me, then that's absolutely fine. That's absolutely fine. But I've shown him everything that I'm about, and if he doesn't, then so be it, but if he does, he knows he's going to get exactly that in his team.”

Wallace birdied five of his last six holes in a 67 to get to 19 under alongside fellow Englishmen Steven Brown, Jonathan Thomson and Lee Westwood before birdies on both extra holes handed him a fourth European Tour win at Silkeborg Ry Golf Club.

“It's been a great week," said Westwood. "I've enjoyed it thoroughly. It was all good. Played lovely. Hit a lot of good shots and a bit unlucky in the playoff. The lads hit two good shots and made birdies. I hit a great putt. Thought I made it. It just dived right at the end.”

Brown and Wallace both put their approaches inside six feet on the first play-off hole for a pair of birdies before Wallace went even closer on the next with Brown only able to make a par.

“I would have definitely taken it kind of beginning of the week, getting in a playoff like that," said Brown. "Can't be too disappointed. Felt like I hung in there quite well because I kind of made a couple of mistakes, 3 and 4, first few holes. To come back after that and give it a go at the end was pleasing but fair play to Matt. He won it. I couldn't have done much more. Really happy for him.”

Wallace moves to 17 th in the Race to Dubai Rankings presented by Rolex and will break into the top 60 of the Official World Golf Ranking for the first time in his career.

In the battle for a place in Thomas Bjørn's Team to take on the United States later this month, Matthew Fitzpatrick carded an excellent closing 66 to get to 16 under and a tie for seventh but that was not enough to dislodge Olesen from the final qualifying spot.

“Relief is my first emotion, that's for sure. It's been a tough week, a long week," said Olesen. "A lot of things on my mind. It's been difficult but it's been great to learn that different kind of pressure. I think I handled it pretty well. There were a couple of things that could have been better, but it was a tough week and I feel pretty happy now. To make the team automatically probably makes it that little bit more special, but it's nice to place yourself in the team, and being inside that top eight will probably make me feel a little bit more comfortable when I get to The Ryder Cup. I'm happy and I'm very proud of myself, the way I've done things this summer and I've handled myself.”

The Dane carded a 68 to finish at 11 under and will now make his Ryder Cup debut in Paris alongside Tommy Fleetwood, Tyrrell Hatton, Rory McIlroy, Francesco Molinari, Alex Noren, Jon Rahm and Justin Rose.
