In Group 2, Thorbjorn Olesen looked to be heading out after his first four attempts found water before the Dane picked up 50 points with his fifth, enough to knock out his compatriot and Ryder Cup captain Thomas Bjorn, who put his first five into the drink before saving face with a 20-point shot with his last effort.

That was not enough to see him through though because reigning British Masters champion Dunne landed two of his on dry land for 35 points.

The first semi-final saw Rose up against Dunne and after a quick game of rock-paper-scissors to decide the order, the players alternated their efforts, with Dunne putting the pressure on by taking a 30-0 lead and although Rose responded with 15 points with his final shot, it was not enough.

Johnston then joined Dunne in the final with his final shot against Olesen earning him a 30-15 win before a low-scoring final was won by Johnston's fifth attempt, which just held the 'green' for 20 points to seal the popular Englishman's victory.
