JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Morten Orum Madsen of Denmark won his first European Tour title Sunday as Charl Schwartzel struggled in the final round of the season-opening South African Open.

Madsen shot a 67 for a 19-under total of 269 and a two-shot victory, overtaking Schwartzel and Hennie Otto of South Africa.

Schwartzel had a triple-bogey 6 on No. 6 and a double bogey on No. 10 to lose his overnight lead. Otto, the 2011 champion, lost the lead when he bogeyed the 15th hole and had a double bogey on the 16th.

Madsen had five birdies and no bogeys.
