PULHEIM, Germany (AP) -- Danny Willett of England won his first European Tour title after beating Marcus Fraser of Australia in a playoff at the BMW International Open on Sunday.

Willett shot a final-round 73 for an 11 under total of 277 to finish with a share of the lead with Fraser, who shot a last day 71 in rainy conditions on the Gut Larcenhof course.

Willett then sealed his first tour win in 106 starts at the fourth extra hole with a par when Fraser only managed a bogey.

Three players -- Ireland's Paul McGinley (66), England's Chris Wood (73) and Spain's Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano (69) -- finished with a share of third place on 10 under.
