Scotland's Marc Warren held off Bradley Dredge to win Made in Denmark by two shots Sunday, shooting a 3-under-par 68 in the last round to secure his third European Tour title.
Warren and Dredge were tied atop the leaderboard overnight but Warren surged ahead of the Welshman with three birdies on his first eight holes to open up a four-shot lead. Warren made two more birdies coming home and could afford his second bogey on the day on the 18th hole for a 9-under 275 total.
It was Warren's first title since winning the 2007 Johnnie Walker Championship, after several recent near misses.
"It feels incredible," Warren said. "Today, I kept telling myself I was swinging the club really well and I was confident in what I was doing."
Dredge finished with a 70 after mixing six birdies with five bogeys, ending with a 7-under-par 277 total.
Warren and Dredge were well clear of the rest, with England's Phillip Archer (69) finishing third with an overall 4-under 280.
More than 80,000 fans watched during the four days at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort, at times braving gusty winds and rain.
