The Englishman held off a late charge from Thomas Aiken in Gothenburg after the South African birdied two of the last four holes to force a playoff on 14-under apiece.

Aiken then drove into the water on the extra hole, though, and Waring's par was enough for him to scoop his first European Tour success.

Max Kieffer was one shot off the lead on 13-under, while Denmark's Thorbjorn Olesen finished fourth to move him ahead of Ian Poulter in the race for an automatic qualifying spot in Europe's Ryder Cup team.
