Martin Kaymer and James Kingston began the day tied for the lead but it was Mikko Ilonen who came from three behind to take the Scandinavian Masters.
A birdie at the final hole for the Finn left Kaymer needing a par to force a play off but the German could only manage a double bogey. It was a day littered with mistakes from the leaders but Ilonen hung on to take the first prize of ?266,660.
