Howell Beats Uihlein in Playoff for Golf’s Dunhill Links Title

Sept. 29 (Bloomberg) -- David Howell beat Peter Uihlein of the U.S. in a playoff to win golf’s Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, his first European Tour crown in seven years.

Howell shot a final-round 67 at St. Andrews, Scotland, as he and Uihlein, with a 69, finished on 23-under par in regulation play. The Englishman clinched victory with a birdie putt at the second extra hole.

“It’s incredible, the sun is shining and the crowd have come out,” Howell told the European Tour website. “I have never played in an Open Championship here but to win a golf tournament as a professional at the home of golf is quite amazing and I am really thrilled.”

Howell’s fifth European Tour title came with a check of 495,000 pounds ($798,000). His last tour win was at the 2006 PGA Championship.
