STYAL’S David Horsey claimed his fourth European Tour title at the Made in Denmark with a two over par 73 in the final round in front of a record crowd at Himmerland Golf and Spa Resort.

A total of 24,112 lined the fairways, yet again creating an electric atmosphere, but their hopes for a home winner were dashed as Søren Kjeldsen came up just short, signing off with a three under par 68 for a share of second place, two shots behind Horsey.

Sweden’s Kristoffer Broberg, and Australians Daniel Gaunt and Terry Pilkadaris were the others tying for the runner-up spot on 11 under par, while another Australian, Richard Green, Welshman Bradley Dredge, Scot Paul Lawrie and Dane Mads Søgaard shared sixth.

Horsey, who led from start to finish, had a two shot cushion playing the last, but, after driving into thick rough on the left, produced a superb shot into the green and two-putted for par.

He said: “It feels fantastic. It’s starting to sink in now. Coming down those last few holes I was very much in my own zone just trying to focus on myself. It probably helped that there weren’t many leaderboards out there. The crowds were unbelievable. We have good fans in the UK, but the fans here are just fantastic. They are so loud.

“To get clapped in on all the greens like we did was amazing. As I was standing over that shot into 18, I knew I was two ahead, but I knew Terry could make birdie and get to 12 under, and when he hit it into 20 feet that sort of made my mind up. I only had 160 to the flag and I knew anywhere left was fine. I hit seven, making sure I kept it left, and it came out perfectly.”
