David Horsey won the Made in Denmark tournament by two strokes on Sunday despite a surge up the leaderboard from Sweden’s Kristoffer Broberg.

The Cheshire golfer, who took a one-shot lead into the final day, shot three bogeys and one birdie in his last round but despite being two over par for the day, it was enough for him to win the title.

Broberg climbed 50 places up the standings to finish in a tie for second place with 11-under-par after firing nine birdies in his final round.

It meant he carded 62 on Sunday but the Swede fell just short of overhauling Horsey, who clung on for a round of 73 and 13 under par in total.

Australia’s Daniel Gaunt and Terry Pilkadaris joined Broberg in the tie for second along with home favourite Soren Kjeldsen.

Scotland’s Paul Lawrie finished in a four-way tie for sixth place on 10 under alongside Wales’ Bradley Dredge, Denmark’s Mads Sogaard and Australia’s Richard Green.
