Raphael Jacquelin emerged triumphant after a record-equalling nine-hole play-off
Jacquelin finally got the better of German rookie Maximilian Kieffer after an exhausting and repetitive battle down the par-four 18th hole to secure the fourth European Tour title of his career.
The duo had been joined by Felipe Aguilar at the start of the play-off after all three men finished regulation play at five-under-par, but the Chilean dropped out at the third extra hole.
Jacquelin had looked poised for victory at that point having put his approach to three feet, but Kieffer holed a remarkable 50-foot putt from off the front of the green to make an unlikely birdie to prolong the contest.
The Frenchman then had numerous chances from fifteen feet or so but could not find the hole before making a fine up-and-down from the sand to stay alive at the seventh time of asking.
Finally, having equalled the European Tour record for the longest play-off, Jacquelin made a five-foot birdie putt to seal victory after Kieffer had to settle for yet another par.
