RABAT, Morocco (AP) Wang Jeung-hun of South Korea won his first title on the European Tour after beating Nacho Elvira in a playoff at the second extra hole in the Trophee Hassan on Sunday.

Wang produced three clutch putts on the 18th green, the first from 18 feet on the 72nd hole to force a playoff with the Spaniard. Wang (70) and Elvira (69) finished on 5-under 283.

The South Korean rolled in a 50-foot putt on the first extra hole to match Elvira's birdie, and they played No. 18 again. Wang then converted a 20-foot birdie putt for the win.

Robert Rock of England and Clement Berardo of France were a shot behind on 4 under. Overnight leader Chris Hanson shot a 3-over 75 and was tied for fifth.
