HAMEENLINNA, Finland (AP) — Lucas Bjerregaard of Denmark protected his lead all day to win the European Amateur golf title on Saturday.

The 18-year-old Bjerregaard shot 2-under 70 to finish on 15-under 273 and win by a stroke from England's Tommy Fleetwood and Italy's Andrea Pavan on Vanajanlinna course.

He's only the second Dane to win the title, after Morten Backhausen, who beat Lee Westwood in a playoff in 1993.

Jeff Karlsson of Sweden was fourth, three shots off the pace on 12 under, and Dean Huizing was fifth at 11 under.
