Hansen claims maiden tour victory

Denmark's Anders Hansen held his nerve on the final day of the Volvo PGA Championship to claim his first ever tour title.

Hansen started off the day on 17 under, after rounds of 68, 65 and 66 had set a new tournament record.

He may not have been able to card four sub-70 rounds, but Sunday's 70 enabled Hansen to rewrite the record books once again, as the Dane ended the week on a fantastic 19 under.

The win is a remarkable achievement for Hansen, whose best finish prior to this competition was third place.

The golf on display was equally impressive, given the inclement conditions on Wentworth's West course.

Argentine Eduardo Romero and Colin Montgomrie tied for second spot after carding resective rounds of 68 and 67, thereby ending Nick Faldo's dream of a second place finish.

Faldo had to improve on last year's third spot in order to win automatic qualification to next month's US Open.

Now the six-time Major winner must jet off to the US in order to win qualification after his closing 69 put him in 12 under, fifth overall.

Montgomerie looked far happier compared to Saturday's round, as he finished on a 14 under total following rounds of 64, 71, 72 and 67.

Carlos Rodiles, who was outright second after three rounds, managed a one under par 71 to take fourth spot, ending the tournament on 12 under.
