Howell wins Alfred Dunhill Links Championship
ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) — England’s David Howell ended a seven-year winless drought with a playoff victory over American Peter Uihlein to capture the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship on Sunday.
The former Ryder Cup player birdied the second extra hole to defeat Uihlein after both players had ended regulation play at 23-under par on the Old Course.
Howell beat Tiger Woods in 2006 to win the inaugural HSBC Champions event and has played more than 200 tournaments since his last victory in the BMW Championship later that year.
England’s Tom Lewis (64) and Ireland’s Shane Lowry (68) shared third place at 22 under.
