AUCHTERARDER, Scotland, Aug. 29 (UPI) -- Edoardo Molinari notched three straight birdies Sunday to come from behind and win the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles.

Trailing Brett Rumford by two strokes late in the match, Moinari staged a stunning comeback with three straight birdies to post his second win of the season in Scotland -- he earlier took the Scottish Open.

Molinari fired a 1-under 71 to end at 10-under-par 278 while Rumford birdied the final two holes to end at 2-under 70, taking second place at minus-9.

Third-round leader Francesco Molinari dipped to a 75, ending in a third-place tie with Miguel Angel Jimenez (72) and Jamie Donaldson (69) at minus-7.

Simon Dyson ended sixth at minus-6.

After Sunday's round, Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie chose Edoardo Molinari along with Padraig Harrington and Luke Donald for the European team.
