    A WILD OMEGA EUROPEAN MASTERS in the Swiss Alps ended with a playoff. It was a fivesome of all things. And it included World No. 2 and FedEx king Rory McIlroy.


    The other four who tied at 14-under 266 weren't exactly the usual suspects. Their names and rankings were
    Kalle Samooja (300), Andres Romero (735), Lorenzo Gagli (513) and Sebastian Soderberg (287).

    Soderberg of Sweden won with a birdie on the first playoff hole. It was his maiden victory on the European Tour.

    Judging from his comments, the Swede might still be in shock.

    "This is tough to describe," Soderberg said. "I was shaking the last few holes.


    "I calmed down a bit for the playoff, but now I don't know what to say. I actually didn't play my best today, but my chipping and putting was unbelievable. And it was so exciting to play with Rory. This really hasn’t sunk in yet.


    "All I really tried to do was just keep going. I didn't really watch the leader board until the last tee. I hit the first putt on 17 too firm, but I'm proud of myself being able to play good when I was shaking so much. On the 18th, I just tried to focus on hitting two more good shots. There was not as much pressure in the playoff. I had nothing to lose. I was way more calm then I was over the last few holes."


    Soderberg, now exempt through 2021, called his new status "life-changing."
