Min Woo Lee birdied the first extra hole to win the Scottish Open after a play-off with the luckless Matt Fitzpatrick and Thomas Detry on Sunday.

Lee was a roll short of making birdie at the 18th in regulation following a weather delay of 90 minutes as she closed out a 64 which featured a sensational run of six consecutive birdies in an outward 30.

The 22-year-old Australian tapped in for par to assume the clubhouse lead ahead of Ian Poulter, who had earlier birdied four of the last five holes to card a superb 63 and race to 17 under par, two ahead of playing partner and world No. 3 Justin Thomas.
