Jacquelin made a 5-foot birdie putt to end the back-and-forth battle with Kieffer in what started as a three-way playoff including Chile's Felipe Aguilar.

The three players were tied at 5-under 283, with Jacquelin and Kieffer both carding 1-under 71s in the final round, while Aguilar finished with a 70.

It was Jacquelin's fourth European Tour victory and his first in more than two years.

The only other European Tour event decided by a nine-hole playoff was the 1989 Dutch Open.
