Result: Olesen wins Perth International
Denmark's Thorbjon Olesen holds off a last-round charge from Victor Dubuisson to win the Perth International by three shots.

Thorbjorn Olesen finished his final round strongly to win the Perth International by three shots this morning.

The Dane headed into the last day with a three-shot advantage, but a late charge from Victor Dubuisson, who made four birdies in a row from the 11th to 15th holes, cut his lead to a single shot.

The Frenchman matched the best round of the day as he carded a 66, which was enough for him to secure second place at the tournament.

However, a birdie on the 15th helped Olesen recover from a shaky spell around the turn to finish on one-under for the day and 17-under for the tournament, just in front of Ryder Cup star Dubuisson.

Englishman Mark Foster completed the top three, finishing the event 13-under, while Jason Dufner, who was competing in a tournament for the first time in three months after a neck injury, could only manage 23rd.

The win gives Olesen the seventh title of his career, and his second on the European Tour.
