Matt Wallace defeated Andrew Johnston in Hero Indian Open play-off

Shubhankar Sharma holds his own to card 72 stays in joint lead at Hero Indian Open

This left Wallace with two shots to win.

In contrast, compatriot Andrew Johnston preferred to lay-up and stayed well behind the lake. I am sure he would have loved to add the Hero Indian Open to his list of successes.

Johnston made a gain on the second from six feet to get within one of the lead but he was not there for long as Wallace birdied the same hole from 25 feet to get to eight under. It's the second week in the row I'm in the leading group.

Two double-bogeys over three holes on the front-nine put Shubhankar out of contention.

It was soon tied at the top when Wallace thinned his third shot from the edge of the green into a back bunker at the 16th for his first dropped shot of the day and did well to make a bogey five.

Last week at the WGC Mexico Championship, too, Shubhankar began as a leader, armed with a two-shot lead, but eventually finished tied ninth to collect $48,125. "Thereafter, it was all about trying to catch up with the lead", Shubhankar said. The double-bogey on the fifth compounded my problems. I'm going to draw from my experiences last week.

Let them call you nativists", he said. "Wear it as a badge of honour because every day we get stronger and they get weaker". He said that Bannon understood like Trump, Matteo Salvini and Marine Le Pen that people want to control their own destiny.

James Milner: Liverpool must take pressure off Mohamed Salah
It was clear if it's possible that we give him (leading scorer and Golden Boot award candidate Mo Salah ) the last 20. The tie was virtually already settled after the first leg as the Reds romped to a 5-0 win in Portugal last month.

Sharma and Wallace shared the lead after the third round, but Sharma bogeyed two of three holes on the back nine, including a double-bogey seven after an out-of-bounds tee shot on the 15th to end his chances of winning his third European Tour event of the season. "I just want to have fun".

277: Andrew Johnston (Eng) (72, 66, 73, 66), Matt Wallace (Eng) (69, 70, 70, 68) (Wallance wins first playoff-hole); 280: Kim Sihwan (USA) (70, 70, 72, 68); 281: Pablo Larrazabal (Esp) (67, 71, 74, 69), Matthias Schwab (Aut) (71, 72, 68, 70); 283: Emiliano Grillo (Arg) (65, 68, 78, 72); 284: Stephen Gallacher (Sco) (72, 71, 67, 74), Shubhankar Sharma (73, 64, 72, 75). This time, he was always in and around the mix and turned in his best card of four under 68 when it counted the most.

Wallace, who won the Portugal Open past year in only his fourth European Tour event, had built a two-shot advantage after collecting five birdies in his opening 10 holes, including a chip-in at the 10th.

"I played great", he said.

"I feel wonderful. It was a hard week and a hard golf course but you can't be off your game", said Wallace after bagging his second European Tour title.
