Robert Dinwiddie completed a dream double with a stunning final round at the Rolex Trophy that overwhelmed the field and secured his second Challenge Tour title in the space of just seven days.

The Englishman was at his imperious best at the Golf Club de Genève, carding a brilliant final round of eight under par 64 to emerge from the chasing pack onto the winner’s podium – recording a three stroke win over countryman Ross McGowan.

Frenchman Michael Lorenzo-Vera took third spot on 14 under, with Magnus A Carlsson of Sweden, Welshman Jamie Donaldson and Ireland’s Colm Moriarty sharing fourth place.

But it was Dinwiddie – the former English, Scottish and Welsh Amateur Strokeplay champion – who took the glory with a wonderful final round surge that included nine birdies and just a single dropped shot.

“I’m over the moon at the moment,” said Dinwiddie. “I putted very well today – I holed just about everything inside 15-20 feet and that was the difference.

“I had a feeling that I had a really low round in me. I had been playing well for the first three rounds but the putts hadn’t dropped.

“But I knew that, on the back of last week in Scotland, that I was playing well enough and I managed to get off to a great start today and went on from there.”

Dinwiddie now joins McGowan, as well as Dutchman Joost Luiten and Italy’s Edoardo Molinari, as a two time winner on the 2007 Challenge Tour Schedule following his maiden success at the Scottish Challenge presented by bank of Scotland Corporate last weekend.

The 24 year old’s victory at the Rolex Trophy takes his season’s earnings to €72,432 and all but secures his place on The 2008 European Tour.
