Scotland’s Marc Warren produced a superb display of golf on the weekend to beat Bradley Dredge of Wales by two shots and win the inaugural Made in Denmark at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort.

Warren fired an exceptional 66 in very windy conditions on Saturday to claim a share of the 54-hole lead with Dredge who had struggled to a 73.

The Welshman then started poorly on Sunday, dropping three shots in his first seven holes and countering with only one birdie. In contrast, Warren came out firing with two birdies and five pars over the same stretch. At that stage the Scot looked to be cruising to victory.

But with birdies at the 8th, 11th, 13th and 14th holes, Dredge fought back to reduce the deficit to just two.

Warren was not to be unseated atop the leaderboard though and he held on well over the closing holes. He holed a huge putt on the 14th green to save par and then made pars at the next three. Despite a bogey on the 72nd hole, Warren did enough to secure his third European Tour title and his first since the Johnnie Walker Championship of 2007.

England’s Phillip Archer completed a final round of 69 to end the week alone in third on four-under-par. He finished one clear of his countrymen Oliver Fisher and Eddie Pepperell, as well as home favourite Thomas Bjorn.

It looked as though the Dane might make a run at the leaders after racing to the turn in 32. But he bogeyed the par-3 10th and wasn’t able to make any further gains against par over the last eight holes.
