Horsey goes wire-to-wire in Farso

European Tour

David Horsey held off challengers to win the European Tour’s Made in Denmark by two strokes on Sunday afternoon.

The Englishman stumbled to a two over 73 in the final round, but it was enough for a two stroke win over Kirstoffer Broberg – who carded a course record 62 – and three others in Farso.

Horsey started off steady enough with birdie on the third and was one under through six holes.

Terry Pilkadaris would join Horsey at the top after a birdie on the second, but the Australian would fall out of contention with back-to-back bogeys on the eighth and ninth.

Broberg would also make a run at Horsey, finishing with a scintillating nine under 62 that would leave him on 11 under for the tournament and tied for second.

Meanwhile, Horsey would slip up with bogeys on seventh, 14th and 16th to make things interesting, but he fought hard for pars on the final two holes and finished on 13 under to clinch his fourth European Tour title.

“It feels unbelievable to be Made in Denmark Champion,” the 30-year-old told europeantour.com after the victory.

“It’s been a bit of a strange week, because like I’ve said I’ve been focusing on myself and trying not to get too caught up in the tournament.

“The last couple of holes it started to catch up with me though, so yeah I’m very pleased to get the win. I made hard work of it though.”

Tied for second with Broberg was Australian duo Pilkadaris and Daniel Gaunt, as well as local hero Soren Kjeldsen.
