Chris Doak won his maiden Challenge Tour title in the ALLIANZ Open de Lyon after defeating Dutchman Tim Sluiter in a play-off.

Sluiter signed for a superb 63 at Golf du Gouverneur and Doak followed with a 66, although a bogey at the last denied him victory in regulation play.

After trading pars at the first two play-off holes, Sluiter slipped up with a bogey at the third, leaving Doak a short par putt to seal victory and guarantee a European Tour card for next season.
