Bjorn Wins European Masters for Second Straight Golf Title

Sept. 4 (Bloomberg) -- Denmark’s Thomas Bjorn hit a 9-under-par 62 in the final round of the Omega European Masters to claim a second straight title on golf’s European Tour.

The 40-year-old, whose round included an eagle, nine birdies and two bogeys, finished on 20-under at Crans-sur-Sierre, Switzerland.

Germany’s Martin Kaymer was four shots back, with Jaco van Zyl of South Africa, Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy and Jamie Donaldson of Wales on 15-under.

Bjorn was three shots behind overnight leader Donaldson heading into the final round, the same margin he overturned to win the Johnnie Walker Championship last week. He needed a playoff to take the Johnnie Walker title.

Bjorn also won the Qatar Masters this year.
