Swedish golfer, Kristoffer Broberg, held off a ferocious onslaught from German, Matthias Schmid and Alejandro Canizares of Spain to win the Dutch Open in Cromvoirt by three shots.
Overnight leader, Broberg completed his final round on 72 – even par – but had already done enough to finish the tournament on 23 under.
Schmid was second on 20 under, while Canizares, finished in third – five shots off the pace.
Broberg went into the final round on 23 under par. Eight shots clear of his nearest competitor, Marcus Helligkilde.
A birdie on the first hole gave him an impressive nine-shot lead. But the next few holes were quite uneventful after that.
He bogeyed the par four third and managed another birdie at the tenth.
Meanwhile, Schmid and Canizares started to make their way up the leader board.
Schmid managed five birdies over the front nine. And another on the 11th to add to the pressure Broberg was no doubt feeling already.
Canizares’ first nine featured six birdies, and one bogey and kept him in the hunt for the title.
On the 12th, Broberg carded his second bogey of the day but a fantastic approach shot prevented matters from getting worse for the Swede.
Undeterred, Schmid kept carding birdies as he went along with six holes to go, he had closed the gap between himself and the leader from nine, to just two shots.
But on the par- three 13th, he made his first mistake of the day and it would cost him dearly.
A double bogey saw him drop back to 19 under par, together with Canizares and four shots behind the Swede.
Broberg, however, was in trouble at the very next hole, the tension was palpable. And a bogey on the par-four, 14th saw him drop back to 22 under for a three-shot lead.
Canizarez was the first to pounce again. On the 16th, he carded a birdie to move into second place and trail by just two.
Moments later, Schmid joined the Spaniard on 20 under par. Courtesy of a brilliant birdie on the same hole.
With the pressure on, Broberg somehow managed a birdie on the 17th. He gave himself some breathing space again with a three-shot lead and with just one hole in the tournament remaining.
