April 21 (Bloomberg) -- France’s Raphael Jacquelin won a marathon three-way playoff to clinch victory in golf’s Open de Espana today.

Jacquelin, Germany’s Maximilian Kieffer and Felipe Aguilar of Chile finished the regulation 72 holes on 283, 5-under par at Parador de El Saler.

The sudden-death playoff then lasted until the ninth extra hole, matching a European Tour record dating from the 1989 Dutch Open. Jacquelin finally won with a birdie.

It was Jacquelin’s first win on the tour for just over two years, and he picked up a check for 250,000 euros ($327,000).
