Bernd Wiesberger won the Scottish Open to secure a sixth European Tour title after beating Benjamin Hebert in a play-off at The Renaissance Club.

Overnight leader Wiesberger was two under par for the day and 22 under overall with France's Hebert having finished with a nine-under round of 62.

But the Austrian triumphed in the third sudden death hole at the 18th.

Hebert, England's Andrew Johnston and Italian Nino Bertasio qualify for the Open after finishing in the top 10.

But Johnston's countryman Lee Slattery and Welshman Jamie Donaldson miss out on places at Royal Portrush after finishing one shot further behind.

Northern Ireland's four-time major winner Rory McIlroy finished tied for 34th after a two-under 69 took him to 13 under.

Calum Hill and Scott Jamieson finished best out of the 15 home favourites, both carding five-under par rounds of 66 on Sunday to both finish on 15 under, which was a share of 26th place.

That will give Hill a welcome confidence and financial boost, given the Kinross player normally competes in the Challenge Tour and only got in the field this week because of coming through a qualifier.
