Edoardo Molinari clinched his first European Tour title since 2010 as he beat overnight leader Paul Dunne in a play-off at the Trophée Hassan II.

The 36 year old finished his fourth round with an eagle at the 18th to snatch the outright lead but Dunne held his nerve to card a birdie at the last to get to nine under and take the contest to a play-off.

But with Dunne unable to convert his six-foot par putt at the first extra hole, Molinari rolled in from two feet to claim his third European Tour victory.

Molinari, whose last victory came at the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles in 2010, said: "It's fantastic. I've been through some very hard times with injuries and bad form.

"To be able to win this week deletes a lot of bad memories and hopefully I can keep going down this road."

When asked whether it was one of his best ever performances on a back nine, he said: "Given the circumstances it's probably one of the best.

"I've probably been the player who has spent the most time on the driving range over the last three years. This is a great reward for so much hard work."
