Garcia claims first win of year at Dutch Open

Sergio Garcia wins 100th edition of KLM Open

Sergio Garcia claims one-shot win at KLM Open

Spain's Sergio Garcia kept his composure despite a roller coaster final-round 69 to win the KLM Open in Amsterdam on Sunday.

Matt Wallace was third at 15 under par, while fellow Englishman James Morrison was one shot further back as Garcia became the first Spanish victor of the KLM Open since Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano in 2005.

Sergio Garcia picked up the 16th European Tour title of his career with a one-stroke victory at the KLM Open in the Netherlands.

"Great week, amazing", Garcia said.

"We had a great week and it's great to win again".

"I want to thank all my sponsors for their support and everything they do for me and the year just got a little bit better".

England's Callum Shinkwin, 26, went into the final day with a share of the lead but slumped to a final round 74 to finish tied fifth at 13-under following a disappointing back nine.

Shinkwin led by a shot with nine holes to play, but Garcia's return of three more gains and just one bogey at the penultimate hole were enough for the Ryder Cup legend to take the honours.

Danish 18-year-old Nicolai Hojgaard, who was two strokes behind the Spaniard after the third round, almost tied for the lead but missed an eagle putt on the 18th and finished with a birdie to sign for a four-under 68 and second place.

Hojgaard signed for a closing 68 to take second place outright, while Matt Wallace was a shot further back after he matched the teenager's round.
