Denmark’s Bjerregaard wins European Amateur golf
Lucas Bjerregaard of Denmark protected his lead all day to win
the European Amateur golf title on Saturday.
The 18-year-old Bjerregaard shot 2-under 70 to finish on
15-under 273 and win by a stroke from England’s Tommy Fleetwood and
Italy’s Andrea Pavan on Vanajanlinna course.
He’s only the second Dane to win the title, after Morten
Backhausen, who beat Lee Westwood in a playoff in 1993.
Jeff Karlsson of Sweden was fourth, three shots off the pace on
12 under, and Robin Wingardh was fifth at 11 under.
