ESTORIL, Portugal (AP) — Denmark’s Thomas Bjorn has won the Estoril Open after shooting a 4-under 68 in his final round at Penha Longa.

After taking a three-shot lead over Richard Green into the final round, Bjorn was never in trouble as he compiled 23-under total of 265 to beat the Australian left-hander by five shots on Sunday.

Green closed with a 2-under 70 to finish alone in second place, two shots ahead of another Danish player, Mark Haastrup, who shot a 67.

Bjorn earned his 10th career victory but first in four years since the two-time European Ryder Cup winner won the Irish Open at Carton House near Dublin in 2006.
