Result: Alexander Bjork wins maiden European Tour title at China Open

Sweden's Alexander Bjork wins his first European Tour title courtesy of a one-shot victory at the China Open.

Alexander Bjork has won his first European Tour title courtesy of a one-shot victory at the China Open.

The 27-year-old Swede produced a final round of 65 - including seven birdies - to leapfrog the overnight leaders Adrian Otaegui and Matt Wallace in the standings and scoop his maiden title.

Bjork's final score of 18-under was one clear of Spain's Otaegui, who bogied the 17th to leave him needing an eagle on the last hole to force a playoff.

Otaegui was ultimately forced to settle for second place, though, one shot clear of compatriot Jorge Campillo and English duo Jordan Smith and Wallace.

Smith's final round of 64 was the joint-best of anyone over the four days of competition, matched by Denmark's Lucas Bjerregaard who also scored eight-under on the final day.
