Nicolai Hojgaard carded a 64 in a dramatic final round to win the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai on Sunday by two strokes and take home the winner’s cheque of $3 million, finishing second in the Race to Dubai.
The Dane finished 21-under-par overall, two strokes ahead of Viktor Hovland, Tommy Fleetwood and Matt Wallace, and will climb to a career-high 50th in the world rankings.
“It’s hard to put into words right now after what just happened, it feels amazing,” Hojgaard said.
