North Berwick - Austrian Bernd Wiesberger made hard work of it, but eventually won the Scottish Open when he beat Benjamin Hebert at the third extra hole in North Berwick on Sunday.

After sinking a clutch six-foot par putt at the final hole of regulation to force the playoff, Wiesberger clinched victory at the same par-four 18th with another par at the Renaissance Club.

Though he fell short, Hebert earned a consolation prize of a spot in the British Open which starts at Royal Portrush on Thursday.

Wiesberger was already exempt for the final major of the year.
