South African Dean Burmester has shot a brilliant bogey-free 62 to claim his first win in four years at the Tenerife Open.
He had entered the final round one shot off the lead but soon hit the front and the chasing pack could not keep pace as he made nine birdies to get to 25-under and win by five shots on Sunday.
German Nicolai von Dellingshausen was the nearest competition, a shot clear of Poland’s Adrian Meronk and Finn Kalle Samooja.
Australia’s 47-year-old Scott Hend enjoyed a final round 67 to finish in a tie for eighth in the European Tour event on 16-under par.
But none of the chasers truly threatened Burmester down the stretch as the 31-year-old used his big-hitting to birdie four of the five par-fives while looking assured on the greens.
“I’d obviously love to get in that top 100 in the world, it’s quite lucrative, a lot of things happen when you get into that top 100, so if I can get back there I’ll be very excited,” said Burmester, who could break into the top 100 when the rankings are next released.
“Hopefully, I can go from strength to strength now and that’ll be my plan, I won’t stop working hard and trying to get better.”
Welshman Jamie Donaldson finished 10 shots off the lead after a 65, two ahead of Scottish pair Scott Jamieson and Richie Ramsay, with England’s Paul Waring at 12-under.
Australian Maverick Antcliff finished joint-42nd on 10-under, while his compatriot Jake McLeod was joint-75th on one-under.
