Bernd Wiesberger defended his Made In Himmerland title with ease, cruising to a five-shot victory on the European Tour. Wiesberger, the 2019 champion made five birdies on the back nine of his final round 64. He ended the week on 21-under, five clear of Guido Migilozzi. This was Bernd Wiesberger eighth European tour title and shot him up to 17th place on the Race to Dubai leaderboard. The win moved him to the cusp of a top 50 world ranking and in contention for a spot on the Ryder Cup team.

“It’s unbelievable,” Wiesberger said. “I’ve had seven chances [to defend a title], I wasn’t successful the first six. I’ve said it all week, I really like it here, playing here is good for my confidence especially after a couple of tougher weeks so it’s a special place for me.”

“Played really good golf. It brings out the best in me, I got it going when I needed to so really enjoyable,” he added. “I wasn’t really coming in on my best form missing the cut last week and not really performing to what I would like to. It was definitely a week where I felt like a chance to find something again and that’s what happened.”

Wiesberger had an overnight lead of one-shot and wasted no time in doubling the advantage at the first. He then missed a chance to save par at the fourth to give a stroke back. He got the stroke back at the par-five sixth with a two-putt. He then tapped in at the eighth hole after narrowly missing out on an eagle. He was leading by one at the turn. On the par-three tenth, he hit his tee shot three feet from the flag. Wiesberger kept increasing his advantage through the back nine to take control of the title.
