Lundberg ends Euro Tour drought with Lyoness playoff triumph wire reports

ATZENBRUGG, Austria -- Mikael Lundberg beat Bernd Wiesberger in a playoff on Sunday to win the Lyoness Open for his first European Tour title in six years and third overall.

The Swede birdied the first playoff hole with a gutsy long putt to wrap up the victory.

Lundberg, who made three birdies in a row on his way to a 65, and Wiesberger, who shot 69, were tied at 12 under after the fourth round.

Defending champion Joost Luiten, who teed off the final day with a two-stroke lead over Wiesberger, carded an even-par 72. The Dutchman finished third, one stroke off the lead.

England's Lee Slattery scored 66 to finish another stroke back in fourth.

Lundberg won the Russian Open in 2005 and 2008.
