Stephen Gallacher and son Jack worked together for the victory in New Delhi

Stephen Gallacher said his "big win" at the Indian Open was more fun because it came on mother's day with his son, Jack, as a caddy.

The 44-year-old Scot came from behind at the DLF Golf & Country Club to insure his first European Tour Winner check since 2014.

"He has 10% of it," said Gallacher from 18 year old Jack.

"It was great to have it on the bag and it is also Mother's Day, it makes it even more special."

Gallacher particularly enjoys the job in New Delhi, where he completed a battle for Japan Masahiro Kawamura.

"It fits a lot of half-to-long irons, which is probably my strong point, and I love curries, so I enjoy myself at night," he said

"I don't know what this is about, I have completed the top 18-20 every time I have played."

Gallacher has caught up with five birdies on the last nine to finish one-substandard for the day and nine under for the tournament.

"When you're 44, you're in the twilight of your career, so it's a big win for me and it's good to do make it the way I did," he said.

"Three at the bottom of the last four is a great way to finish it and I am delighted."

Gallacher & # 39; s victory came despite a four-fold bogy on the seventh hole of the final round a quirky tee shot.

"It was against the outer-boundary fence and I had nowhere to go, but back to the tee," he recalled. "I beat my next one and lost it, but I was pretty calm after that gap.

" To see that I was only five, gave me a little encouragement. I played the eighth darling and hit the green at three to nine and that set me going. "

Gallacher, currently on the world ranking of 208, picked up recent injury battles to secure the title

" When I knew I was only five on the eighth tee, I thought I just had to hang on to it. And when I birdied 15, I saw that Julian Suri had come back from the top and I thought I was one behind it, "he added.

" And then when I got to the 16th green, they had changed it so I was stuck for the lead and I tried to finish as strong as possible at 17 and 18. I did that and luckily it was enough. "
