EUROPEAN TOUR: Matt Wallace birdied the first playoff hole against fellow Englishman Andrew “Beef” Johnston to win the Indian Open at New Delhi on Sunday.

Johnston shot a final-round 66 and Wallace a 68 to finish at 11-under 277.

Sihwan Kim of the U.S. finished third after a 68, three strokes behind. Hometown favorite Shubhankar Sharma faded to a 75 to finish seven shots behind.

INDYCAR: Sebastien Bourdais won the season-opening race in St. Petersburg, Florida, a victory handed to him when Alexander Rossi and Robert Wickens crashed racing for the lead.

On a restart with two laps remaining, Rossi tried to dive inside of Wickens entering the first turn. The two cars made contact and Wickens spun off course.

Bourdais slid by both cars from third for the victory, the 37th of his career.
