The American fired seven birdies and no bogeys at Himmerland Golf and Spa Resort to finish 19 under and four shots clear of overnight leader David Horsey, who triple-bogeyed the final hole.

''This is the reason why you get up early every morning to practice, go to the gym and get prepared to succeed,'' said the 26-year-old Suri, who won the D+D REAL Czech Challenge in May and becomes the third American to win on the European Tour and Challenge Tour after U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka and Peter Uihlein.

Chris Paisley, Steve Webster and Ben Evans shared third place on 13 under, with 51-year-old John Daly who was trying to become the oldest winner in European Tour history finishing in a tie for 10th after a closing 71.

The final round developed into a head-to-head battle between playing partners Horsey and Suri, who began the day two shots behind but raced into the lead with five birdies in a front nine of 31.

Horsey, who was looking to win the event for the second time in three years, got back on level terms with birdies on the 11th and 12th and both birdied the 14th to remain well clear of the chasing pack.

Suri then struck the decisive blow with a birdie from 20 feet on the 15th and victory was assured when Horsey lost a ball following a wild drive on the 18th and found a water hazard with his second attempt.

''To have seven birdies and be bogey-free in the final round was really solid,'' Suri said. ''There was no wind and with all the rain last night there were going to be a lot of birdies. I have an aggressive mentality so I feel like that played right into my hands.

''I feel like my game belongs at the top of the game. This is definitely something I've worked for and kind of expected for a long time. But to finally come out and do it, especially after the string of good finishes this summer, is really special.''

Round 3 - John Daly moves in to contention

August 26, 2017

John Daly rolled back the years with a 6-under 65 on a day of low scoring at the Made in Denmark tournament to sit three shots off the lead after the third round on Saturday.

The two-time major winner birdied four of his first eight holes, and slipped up only on the 16th, where his putt up the hill rolled back to his feet.

Daly was in a tie for third in a group of four, including Gregory Havret (65), and Englishmen Chris Paisley (65) and Robert Rock (66) at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort.

Another English golfer, David Horsey, led the field by two shots after the low round of the day, 64.

Horsey hit every green in regulation and moved into the lead from the 15th. After an approach within eight feet of the 17th hole gave him another birdie and a two-shot lead, Horsey was at 14 under overall.

He won the Made in Denmark in 2015, and seeks a fifth European Tour title.

Two shots back was Julian Suri of the United States.

Round 2 - Steve Webster edges ahead

August 26, 2017

Defending champion Thomas Pieters missed the cut at the Made In Denmark tournament, as Steve Webster took a one-shot lead after two rounds of the European Tour event on Friday.

Pieters, the world No. 29, was the highest-ranked player in the field, but shot 74-70 and was 2 over the expected par cut line.

Webster, who led overnight with Wade Ormsby and Matt Wallace, shot a 1-under 70 and was on 8-under overall at the Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort.

Paul Dunne (68), SSP Chawrasia (68), Marc Warren (64), and David Horsey (67) were a shot off the lead. Warren, the 2014 champion, had missed the cut in his previous eight events.

Making his 500th European Tour appearance, Europe Ryder Cup captain Thomas Bjorn shot 68 to make the weekend on 1 under.

Round 1 - Trio share first round lead

The No. 163-ranked Wallace made nine birdies, but a bogey 5 at the last cost him the outright lead at the Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort.

Swedish players Oscar Lengden and Robert Karlsson, and Benjamin Hebert of France were one stroke behind the joint leaders after 65s.

Thomas Pieters, the world No. 29, is the highest-ranked player competing in Denmark but a quadruple-bogey 8 at the par-4 No. 6 - his 15th hole - led to him shooting 74.

Europe Ryder Cup captain Thomas Bjorn, playing in his home country and in his 500th event on the European Tour, shot 73.
