VIENNA, June 10 (UPI) -- Richard Green bogeyed the final hole and then beat Jean-Francois Remesy in a playoff Sunday to capture the BA-CA Golf Open in Vienna.

Green's bogey at 18 gave him a 1-under 70 for the final round and a 72-hole score of 16-under 268. Remesy fired a 7-under 64 Sunday, and didn't catch Green until the eventual winner bogeyed the final hole in regulation.

Sunday's victory gave Green his first title in 10 years. He won the Dubai Desert Classic in 1997.

"I've had that self-doubt in me for quite a long time," Green said. "I've got myself into position and played three rounds great, but not four, so to get across the line is a huge relief."

Chris Gane (65) tied for third at 15-under 269 with Michael Jonzon (66) and Miguel Angel Jimenez (67). Stephen Gallacher (65) finished sixth at 14-under 270.
