Bjerregaard came in to the final round of the Portugal Masters with a slim one-shot advantage but he set the tone early, doubling his lead with a birdie on the opening hole.
The Dane didn’t look back from there as he went on to fire seven more birdies to sign for a blistering final round 65 and finish on 20 under par, four clear of his nearest competitor.
“Today is up there with one of my best rounds,” said Bjerregaard, who won the inaugural GolfSixes earlier this year alongside fellow countryman Thorbjørn Olesen.
“Not so much the six under around here, I’ve done that before, but under the pressure some of the shots I hit – the two shots I hit on 17 are some of the best I’ve hit in a long time. I felt like it was my time to go out and grab it and not wait for someone to hand it to me.”
Warren’s lone runner-up finish at the Portugal Masters earned him a useful total of 222,220 points. The Scot now jumps from 173rd to 100th place in the Rankings with a season total of 317,075 points.
Graeme Storm and Eddie Pepperell picked up a healthy 112,600 points each as they finished tied for third to make significant strides up the Rankings. Pepperell’s continued rich vein of form means he now breaks in to the top 60 in the Race to Dubai. The Englishman is now in 54th place, while Storm moved to 39th.
However, it’s still the Englishman Tommy Fleetwood who remains at the head of the Rankings with 3,771,122 points, whilst Spaniard Sergio Garcia is in second with a season tally of 2,799,255 points.
