Foster's eagle secures first European Tour victory
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa -- England's Mark Foster made a 35-foot eagle putt on the second extra hole to win a six-man playoff at the Dunhill Championship on Sunday.
Foster closed with a 4-under 68 and finished at 15-under 273 for his first European Tour win.
On the first playoff hole, Hansen and McGuigan were eliminated after the four other players birdied the hole.
Foster, who missed a 12-foot putt for eagle on the first extra hole, rolled in a snaking, 35-foot eagle putt for the win.
Immelman, coming off his first European Tour win a week earlier at the South African Open, narrowly missed a chip-in from off the green on the first playoff hole.
England's Justin Rose closed with a 7-under 65, but missed the playoff by two strokes and settled for a tie for seventh.
