Holland's Joost Luiten delighted the home crowds with victory in the KLM Open at Zandvoort on Sunday, beating Miguel Angel Jimenez on the first play-off hole at Kennemer Golf Club, Holland.

A par on the 18th was enough to give Luiten his third European Tour title and second of the season after Jimenez three-putted from long range.

Ireland's Damien McGrane finished three shots back in a share of third place alongside Englishmen Simon Dyson and Ross Fisher, and France's Gregory Havret.

Shane Lowry could only manage a three-over 73 to finish on two under, with Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley a shot further back after a 71.

The three remaining Irish competitors were over par for the round and the tournament – David Higgins shot a one-over-par 71 (+4), Simon Thornton 72 (+5) and Kevin Phelan 74 (+6).

Jimenez, already the oldest winner in European Tour history, began the day a shot behind playing partner Luiten but quickly moved into the lead courtesy of a hat-trick of birdies from the second.

The 49-year-old, who broke his leg in a skiing accident shortly after his win in the Hong Kong Open aged 48 and 318 days last November, missed from two feet for a birdie on the 12th but soon enjoyed a two-shot cushion when he birdied the next and Luiten bogeyed.

However, Luiten birdied the 14th after a superb approach to five feet and got back on level terms on the next when Jimenez failed to get up and down from a greenside bunker.

Both players bogeyed the 17th and parred the last to finish tied on 12 under par, Jimenez carding a 67 and Luiten a 68.
