Senior Open presented by Rolex 2023 champion, Alex Cejka

Alex Cejka defeated Padraig Harrington in a play-off to win The Senior Open Presented by Rolex as he landed his third Senior Major Championship on a dramatic day of punishing conditions at Royal Porthcawl.

The German got the job done at the second extra hole, making a two-putt birdie at the par-five 18th as Harrington could only manage a par after a fluffed chip shot.

Harrington, who has now finished runner-up in both his Senior Open appearances, had missed an eagle putt to win on the 72nd hole, before both players made birdies on the first play-off hole.

Extra holes were required after both players finished the tournament on five over par, with nobody able to break par for the second day running as the field faced howling winds and rain in Wales.

It is the highest winning score at Europe’s only Senior Major Championship since Charles finished on seven over at Royal Lytham & St Annes in 1993.
