THE SCOTTISH Open was won by Jeev Milkha Singh last night, a result that sees the Indian qualify for the Open at Royal Lytham, which commences on Thursday.

Singh forced his way to a play-off with Francesco Molinari, who had led overnight, before beating the Italian on the first extra hole with a 12-foot birdie.

British hopeful Marc Warren blew a three-shot lead with four holes to go, double-bogeying the 15th and stuttering to bogeys on the 16th and 17th holes.

“It was in my hands with four holes to go, it was up to me but I didn’t finish it off,” a downbeat Warren said.

“It was all a bit disappointing.”
