Jonathan Caldwell finished just outside the top-50 on the DP World Tour after a two-under 69 in his final round at the Made in HimmerLand in Denmark.

The Clandeboye man, who made only his fifth weekend appearance of the second, closed with an eagle, two birdies and two bogeys on day four to finish at six-under-par, in a share of 52nd place.

That should move him up to 212nd on the Race to Dubai standings as he looks to secure his place on the top tier for next season.

It was a tougher final day for Paul Dunne, who had an eagle, two birdies and six bogeys in a two-over 73 to drop back to two-over-par and he finished the week at 73rd, although he did move up to 222nd in the Race to Dubai.

Meanwhile, former Ryder Cup player Oliver Wilson put on a stunning show down the stretch to pick up his second DP World Tour win as he held off Ewen Ferguson by a shot to lift the trophy.

Ferguson had set the clubhouse lead at 20-under-par after a five-under 66 in his final round, but Wilson produced some fireworks on his way back to the clubhouse.

The Englishman drained a monster putt at the 13th to keep his momentum going before finding a birdie at the short par-three 16th and then another at the 17th with an incredible 65-footer for birdie, which allowed him to birdie the last for a 67 and the victory at 21-under-par.

“I was so confident, I knew I could get the job done. Everything I’ve done up to this point to rebuild my game and I knew I could do it. I was so in control, and I said I wasn’t going to cry. I was calm there, I almost enjoyed the last hole!” said the 41-year-old.

“It’s pretty special, I’m so proud of myself. I’ve got a great team around me and there are other people who have helped me a tonne. The list goes on, everybody who knows me has been pulling me along to help figure this game out.

“I don’t think I’m there yet but I feel like there’s a lot ahead of me, and I’m so pleased to get win number two. I love this place, I’ve done well here before. My game has been trending in the right direction with my stats and my results.”
