Italy’s Edoardo Molinari made it a brilliant three wins in his last five tournaments at the Dunlop Phoenix in Japan on Sunday.
This when he beat last year’s European Tour number one Robert Karlsson in a play-off.
The pair had tied on 13-under par before Molinari, older brother of the better-known Francesco, sank a four-foot birdie putt on the second extra hole.
The 28-year-old’s previous victories came on his way to winning Europe’s 2009 ‘second division’ Challenge Tour, but all three victories have counted towards the world rankings as he is now just outside the top 60.
He is also back into the top 10 on the European Ryder Cup world points list.
Karlsson failed to qualify for the Dubai World Championship after a season disrupted by a blister behind a retina. He was out of the game for almost three months.
Joint third were Shane Lowry, who as an amateur won the Irish Open in May, and Japan’s Hirofumi Miyase.
