Lucas Bjerregaard compiled an excellent five-under 67 amid blustery conditions at St Andrews to clinch his second European Tour title with victory at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

Final leaderboard

Alfred Dunhill Links Championship

The 27-year-old holed a monster birdie putt at his penultimate hole and, despite a closing bogey, finished one shot clear of English Ryder Cup duo Tyrrell Hatton and Tommy Fleetwood.

Hatton appeared set to join Tiger Woods, Ernie Els and Nick Faldo to have won a European Tour event three times in succession after opening a four-shot cushion, but the defending champion saw his advantage evaporate on the back nine before he missed a birdie putt at the last to force a play-off.
