David Howell beats Uihlein in playoff to win Dunhill Links Championship

London, Sept 30 (ANI): England's David Howell has won the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship at St Andrews, his first title since 2006, when he beat American Peter Uihlein in a play-off.

According to the BBC, both ended 23 under after Howell shot five-under 67 and Uihlein carded 69.

England's Tom Lewis and Ireland's Shane Lowry were one stroke further back with England's Tommy Fleetwood 21 under, the report said.

Howell's last victory came in the European Tour's flagship PGA Championship at Wentworth seven years ago, several months after holding off Tiger Woods to clinch the HSBC Champions Tournament, the report added.

He said that he had never played an Open Championship at the venue, adding that it was still a dream but to win a tournament at the home of golf was amazing and it had been a long road from the depths of despair. (ANI)
