Austria’s Bernd Wiesberger defended his Made in Himmerland presented by FREJA title in style as he cruised to a five shot win in Denmark.
The 35-year-old led after every round and having started the day with a one-shot advantage, dominated proceedings with eight birdies in a closing 64 to finish at 21 under and claim his eighth European Tour title.
Wiesberger’s triumph means nobody has won more than his four titles on the European Tour since the start of the 2019 season – he joins World Number One Dustin Johnson on that mark – and is likely to lift him back into the Official World Golf Ranking’s top 50.
Italy’s Guido Migliozzi shot a closing 63 to finish second on 16 under, with English pair Richard Bland and Jordan Smith sharing third with Australia’s Jason Scrivener on 15 under.
Bernd Wiesberger: “It’s
“There’s a lot of golf to be played. First of all I really wanted to have a good week and start playing better golf again. This week really clicked for me, had a couple of good breaks on the way as well. Got to keep playing good golf but I would like to put my name in the vicinity of one of those spots. First things first I need to play some more tournaments like this week and it will sort itself out.
“It’s an awesome week obviously, I wasn’t really coming in on my best form missing the cut last week and not really performing to what I would like to. It was definitely a week where I felt like a chance to find something again and that’s what happened.
“I played steady golf, I had a really good mindset out there all week and it’s really enjoyable to put the foot down on the back nine and make a couple of birdies, it felt really nice. It’s just an enjoyable golf course for me and it feels like I can really score well and I think that got me over the line this week.”
Guido Migliozzi: “I have been playing very good the past few weeks, I just controlled my game better today because I have a few mistakes over the last few days, but today me and my caddie worked well and it has been a great day of golf.
“We said go straight at the pin and attack. I had a good feeling so it was the right moment to attack. It gives me a lot of confidence and I am happy with where my game is at, so keep pushing and keep grinding.”
