Gleneagles - Tommy Fleetwood of England birdied the first playoff hole on Sunday to earn his first European Tour victory at the Johnnie Walker Championships.

Fleetwood also birdied the 18th to finish his round with a 70 and set up a three-way playoff with Scotland's Stephen Gallacher (67) and Argentina's Ricardo Gonzalez (70) after all three finished on 18-under 270 on the PGA Centenary course.

Playing the par-5 18th again, Fleetwood narrowly missed an eagle putt from the fringe and then rolled in a three-footer for the win. Gallacher and Gonzalez both made par.

Gallacher overcame a triple-bogey 7 on the 11th hole with a round that included five birdies and two eagles — including one on the 18th to make the playoff.
