Danish Delight for Warren

Mark Warren Danish Open

Scotland’s Mark Warren capped off an impressive month with victory at the Made in Denmark Open last weekend. Following on from a tremendous third place in the Scottish Open and a good showing in the US PGA Championship it has been an awesome August for the Scotsman and it could well bring him into contention as a surprise Captain’s Pick for the Ryder Cup in September with the current form he has shown.

Warren posted rounds a four round total of 9 under par to hold off Bradley Dredge of Wales, the highlight of which being a 5 under par 66 to claim the lead after 54 holes in Denmark. A final round of 68, 3 under par, was enough for the Scotsman to claim the title.

Speaking after the win Warren said:

It feels incredible. I felt the last couple of years I’ve been close to winning a couple of times but for whatever reason is hasn’t quite happened for me, whether I’ve made mistakes or someone else has played really well. This summer I feel more confident that I’ve ever done. Today I kept telling myself I was swinging the club really well and I was confident in what I was doing“.

There were encouraging signs for Dredge too with his second place finish being his best showing in a long time on the European Tour, Thomas Bjorn also copper-fastened his Ryder Cup spot by finishing tied fourth on 3 under. Warren’s win puts him 20th on the Race to Dubai Rankings and 23rd on the Ryder Cup standings.
