With Rory McIlroy breathing down his neck all day and safely in the clubhouse following a 63, Paul Dunne finished birdie-birdie to claim his maiden European Tour title.

Dunne led McIlroy by one shot, through 16 holes, before making birdie on the par-4 17th. After an indifferent tee shot on the par-3 18th, Dunne rolled in the above chip to cap off a closing, 9-under 61 and secure win No. 1 on tour.
