Broberg masters Lake Malaren for maiden win

Kristoffer Broberg claimed his first European Tour title at the BMW Masters with a dramatic play-off victory over Patrick Reed.

The Swede came into the final round two shots off the lead but turned in 33 to hold a share of top spot and a single birdie on the back nine got him to 17 under.

Playing partner Reed had been off the pace but picked up four shots in four holes from the 13th, including a spectacular eagle on the 15th, to move into the box seat and take a one shot lead onto the 17th tee.

But he dropped a shot on the 17th and as the chasing pack failed to close in, the leading duo parred the last to send the tournament to a two man play-off up the 18th.

Reed put his second shot into the bunker and although he played an excellent recovery for par, he could only watch on as Broberg rolled in a 15-foot putt down the hill to add a European Tour title to his four Challenge Tour triumphs.
