  • Matt Wallace and Shubhankar Sharma share lead going into final round of Indian Open

Strong winds brought carnage to the DLF Golf Club on day three of the Indian Open as scores ballooned leaving local hero Shubhankar Sharma atop the leaderboard alongside England's Matt Wallace.

Wallace now has a European Tour exemption through the 2019 season.

Londoner Matt Wallace became the fourth Englishman to win on the European Tour in 2018, following a thrilling play-off success against countryman Andrew "Beef" Johnston in the Hero Indian Open in New Delhi on Sunday.

"I played great", he said.

"I feel awesome. It was a hard week and a hard golf course but you can't be off your game", said Wallace after bagging his second European Tour title. I pumped it down there on the last and it went a long way, and then a four-iron went even farther than I thought it would, so I was jacked up a bit.

Shubhankar was joint leader with eventual victor Matt Wallace heading into the final round, but stumbled on Sunday. "I'll try to get a good night of sleep tonight and go from there. It's satisfying to master the course".

"There are some great champions".

The 6-foot, 209-pounder stepped up his game in the playoffs, however, catching 13 passes for 157 yards and a TD. Douglas said he and Worley frequently talked as Douglas worked his way through the draft process.

Wallace won it at the first extra hole, hitting a monster drive down the 18th and then a fine second shot to enjoy the luxury of two putts for the crown. "SSP (Chawrasia) held it for a couple of years and I am so happy to get my name on the trophy".

"I think I played great, I didn't miss too many shots".

At the par 3 fifth, Shubhankar hit his tee shot in the water, while he found the hazard in the par 4 seventh hole to lose four strokes.

Wallace trumps Johnston in play-off to win Indian Open title Writing for TOI, Lahiri felt that Shubhankar - whose stunning rise up the golf rankings saw him jump from 462nd place to 66th in three months following two European Tour Wins and a tied ninth place finish at the World Golf Championships in Mexico last week - was on the right track. "I was swinging it that good", he said.

"I kept telling my caddie that this is our home course, you can't overpower this course". I hit an unbelievable shot out of there and holed the putt.

Wallace's play on the third day for his 70 was the key because conditions were tough and he handled them well. "Ever since being three over through eight at the start of the week I've played some of the best golf of my life and to do it in that style at the end there capped it off".

Asked about his targets, Wallace said: "I had a few targets set at the start of the year, but I've tweaked it. Hopefully, it can be the start of a few things coming up".
