Rookie Win For Waring In Sweden

Britain’s Paul Waring (pictured) literally had to battle for his maiden win on the European Tour.

The 33-year old Englishman outlasted South Africa’s Thomas Aiken in a play-off to win the Nordea Masters in Gothenburg.

Waring held a two-shot lead with four holes to play before Aiken birdied the last to force extra holes.

Waring and Aiken both shot two-under 68s to finish on 14-under par, a shot ahead of Germany’s Max Kieffer, who carded a five-under 65 in the final round.

Denmark’s Thorbjorn Olesen finished fourth to move ahead of England’s Ian Poulter in the race to qualify automatically for Europe’s Ryder Cup team.
