They finished with 11-under totals of 277 at the DLF Golf and Country Club.

Shubhankar Sharma struggled to a three-over 75 to finish tied seventh.

The atmosphere was tensed when the play-off was introduced but Wallace proved the better player for the crucial moment.

It was the 27-year-old's second European Tour title and he won it with a blistering drive on the first playoff hole, the par-5 18th and after seeing Johnston's birdie putt shave the hole, needing two putts to seal the mini-match.

It was redemption after Wallace failed to birdie the same hole minutes earlier to win in regulation.

Wallace started the day magnificently by scoring four birdies before making the turn.

The birdie on the 10th was offset by an immediate bogey.

Wallace trumps Johnston in play-off to win Indian Open title Writing for TOI, Lahiri felt that Shubhankar - whose stunning rise up the golf rankings saw him jump from 462nd place to 66th in three months following two European Tour Wins and a tied ninth place finish at the World Golf Championships in Mexico last week - was on the right track.

Wallace, who won the Portugal Open past year in only his fourth European Tour event, had built a two-shot advantage after collecting five birdies in his opening 10 holes, including a chip-in at the 10th. He once again emphasised how hard the course was and nearly patted himself on the back for playing good golf. It was a hard week and I think, I played great. Ever since being three over through eight at the start of the week, I've played some of the best golf of my life and to do it in that style at the end there capped it off. Wallace closed in 4-under 68, and Johnston closed in 66.

"Beef really had a great round today, because I was playing fantastic and thought I might have been a few more clear".

"I asked on 15 what the score was". I am also going to play a few more rounds in the next couple of weeks. I have a good record in the tournament and I am very proud of it.

While the two Englishmen grabbed the top two spots, Shubhankar was left far behind as the day progressed.

"It was a disappointing day for me". Here's hoping that this is just the start of good things for him. So I'm happy with what I achieved even though it was somewhat of a mixed bag.

"I was trying to come back but I made another bad swing on the seventh. I'd like to thank everyone for coming out to support me". I really enjoyed the tournament and I loved the support.
