American David who plays on the Asian Tour, had carded a final round of -5 under par 65, while Graeme, who had previously recorded two rounds of 64 could only manage a -2 under par 68 final round. Playing the 18th again in the playoff Graeme could not recover from a wayward tee shot, leaving David a simple tap in for par to win the Omega European Trophy, his first European Tour trophy. He also made history by becoming the first player from the Asian Tour to win in Europe. David explained his tactics on the play-off hole; "It’s a tough tee shot anyway, but when there’s the title on the line it’s very tough. You have to draw your tee shot from right to left to hold it against the hill, and I thought I’d hit a great shot but it ended up going in the bunker." “It was a tough shot out of the bunker and, with Graeme only going to make par at best, I decided not to risk going in the water. In the end it was the right play, and I’m so pleased to get the job done.”     "My first play-off win in Cambodia gave me lots of confidence and I’m glad I brought that along with me today. Graeme played great today but the difference was that I was able to see it through on the last hole.”It’s definitely a very special feeling to be the first player from the Asian Tour to win here. I was playing in Europe the last three weeks and was in good form. I’m just happy to be able to put it all together here." Graeme was upset at the outcome, but was going to take the positives from the week, winning the BMW i8 for a hole in one would be one of them; “It’s tough to take right now. I didn’t have much time between finishing my final round and starting the play-off, so I probably wasn’t as composed as I should’ve been." “So it was obviously disappointing, but overall it’s been an unbelievable week. There a lot of emotions flying round right now so I’ll have to reflect with a clear head in the morning, but there are definitely lots of positives to take from the week.”    Brooks Kopeka and Tyrrell Hatton tied for third place at -17 under par, just one shot short of the play-off, American Brooks actually carded a couple of bogey's towards the end of his round, on 14 and 17, which proved to be very costly.
