Sept. 11 (Bloomberg) -- England’s Simon Dyson won the KLM Open for a third time in six years after a final-round 4-under-par 66 today at Hilversumsche Golf Club in the Netherlands.
The 33-year-old finished on 12-under for the tournament, one shot ahead of countryman David Lynn, with U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland on 10-under.
Dyson, who also won the Irish Open this year, has now recorded half of his European Tour victories at this tournament. The 2006 and 2009 champion collects a check for 300,000 euros ($410,000).
He birdied four of the last seven holes today, while 2004 winner Lynn had an eagle at the 12th in his 2-under round. Germany’s Martin Kaymer failed to make the halfway cut in the defense of his title.
