Thomas Bjorn won on the opening playoff hole to take golf’s European Masters after his opponent Craig Lee missed a last-hole birdie putt that would have given him his first tour victory.

Denmark’s Bjorn and Lee of Scotland finished level on 20-under par 264 at Crans-sur-Sierre, Switzerland, after shooting final rounds of 65 and 67, respectively. Lee, 36, had been the overnight leader after a 61 yesterday.

Bjorn, 42, picked up a check for 366,660 euros ($483,000) with his first win since victory at the event two years ago and his 14th overall on the European Tour.

“It was nice, I had a really good run through the summer and did not really get close enough,” Bjorn told the Tour website. “I had to grit my teeth for a while and I really wanted to get out and try to win a golf tournament again.”
