SANTO DA SERRA, Madeira Islands - Daniel Brooks made par on the first playoff hole yesterday to win the fog-shortened Madeira Islands Open, which was overshadowed by the death of a caddie earlier in the day.

Scott Henry, who had birdied the last three holes to force a playoff, three-putted for bogey on the first extra hole to finish second.

However, some European Tour members said the tournament should have been stopped after Ian MacGregor, the 52-year-old Zimbabwe-born caddy to Scotland's Alastair Forsyth, collapsed and died of an apparent heart attack on the ninth fairway - Forsyth's final hole.

The event, which had already been shortened to 36 holes because of a series of fog delays, was halted again after the delay but restarted following a minute's silence. European Tour officials said they had consulted with players and caddies before deciding to play on.
