Nicolai Hojgaard made history in Dubai, United Arab Emirates as he clinched the season-ending World Tour Championship on the European tour. The 22-year-old Dane showcased exceptional iron play on the final stretch, sinking five consecutive birdies to finish with a score of 8-under 64 and a total of 21-under par.
Hojgaard’s impressive performance allowed him to hold off Tommy Fleetwood and claim the title. Fleetwood, also in contention for the championship, bogeyed on No. 17, forcing him to eagle the par-5 last hole to have a chance at victory. However, his third shot landed beyond the flag, and Hojgaard celebrated in the scoring hut after securing his win.
This victory marks Hojgaard’s third consecutive win on the European tour, solidifying his status as a competitive and seasoned player. The championship earned him an impressive prize of $3 million, making it not only a significant moment in his career but also a lucrative one.
