County Antrim, Northern Ireland (Sports Network) - Daan Huizing birdied the first playoff hole on Sunday to top Oliver Wilson and win the Northern Ireland Open Challenge.

Huizing entered the final round with a 6-shot lead, but tripped to a 3-over 74 in the windy conditions at Galgorm Castle Golf Club to finish at 13-under-par 271.

Wilson shot a 4-under 67 to meet him there.

Huizing gave his early advantage away with an outward 39 that included bogeys at the third, fourth, sixth and ninth.

He regained some cushion with birdies at the 12th and 14th, but tripped to a bogey at the last after being forced to take a provisional following an errant drive to necessitate the playoff.

Wilson, meanwhile, countered his lone bogey of the day with five birdies to join Huizing at 13-under.

On the playoff hole, Wilson hit his drive into a bunker, while Huizing split the fairway and found the green with his second.

After Wilson failed to convert his birdie effort, Huizing was able to calmly 2-putt for the win, earning the Dutchman his first career win on the European Challenge Tour.
