Paul Wesselingh has won his second tournament of the season following a dramatic play-off at the Bad Ragaz PGA Seniors Open with former MCB Champion Kevin Spurgeon.
The two British golfers battled it out on the Swiss Bad Ragaz course with Spurgeon ultimately drawing level with Wesselingh forcing the pair to play extra holes. It was only a birdie on the third extra hole, the 18th, which secured the win for Wesselingh.
Kevin Spurgeon is no stranger to dramatic battles having fought hard to win the MCB Tour Championship held in Belle Mare Plage, Mauritius, back in 2009.
This latest win places Wesselingh at the top of the European Senior Tour Order of Merit after just four events this year.
