Levet wins British Masters
Britain's David Howell
David Howell could not keep it going in the play-off
Frenchman Thomas Levet won the Victor Chandler British Masters at Woburn after a tense play-off.

The winner, with just one Tour victory to his name before, made a birdie at the 17th hole, the third hole of the play-off, to take the first prize of 208,000.

Four players - Levet, Robert Karlsson, Matthias Gronberg and David Howell - completed the 72 holes on 14 under par.

But Karlsson and Howell were both eliminated from the play-off after taking fives at the first hole, which was actually the 18th on the course.

Errors

But Levet blew his chance of winning it at that stage when he missed a fairly easy birdie chance from eight feet, with Gronberg having already made his par.

Ironically, both Howell and Karlsson had holed difficult par putts to seal their place in the play-off during the final hole of their rounds.

But when forced to play the hole again, neither did themselves any favours with their approach shots, Howell finding the bunker and Karlsson the trees.

Both Gronberg and Levet made par when forced to play the hole again, with Levet this time making a much more difficult putt for his four.

At the 17th, both hit super iron shots, but while Gronberg's span back to some 20 feet away, Levet's rolled towards the hole, leaving him with the birdie chance that he made.
