NORTH BERWICK, Scotland (AP) — Anthony Wall of England won his first European Tour title in more than 16 years, beating Alex Noren of Sweden 1 up in the final of the Paul Lawrie Match Play on Sunday.

Noren was looking to win a second title in Scotland in the space of a month, after capturing the Scottish Open on July 10, and was 2 up after two holes over the Archerfield links in the windiest conditions of the week. He didn’t win another hole.

Wall, ranked No. 234, won Nos. 3, 6 and 11, and saw Noren miss a birdie putt from 12 feet at the par-5 last that would have taken the match to extra holes.

Wall’s only previous title was at the Alfred Dunhill Championship in 2000 – 16 years, 204 days ago. He has played 431 events since then.
