Denmark became the inaugural GolfSixes champions after a 3-1 victory over Australia in the final at the Centurion Club last May.The European Tour was breaking new ground in St Albans with 16 teams of two starting the weekend and battling it out first in a group stage and then a knockout over six holes in greensomes.
Entrance music, pyrotechnics and a sprinkling of celebrity gave the event a whole new feel, but it was world class golf that proved to be the highlight, with Olesen claiming his second team win for Denmark in six months after his victory at the ISPS HANDA World Cup of Golf alongside Søren Kjeldsen.
Denmark had finished second in Group A and 2-1 victories over France and Italy got them to the final against Australia, who finished second in Group C before overcoming Thailand and Scotland on Sunday.
A birdie on the third gave Australia a 1-0 lead in the final but Denmark then won the final three holes to make golfing history.
"It's been an amazing week," said Bjerregaard. "The fans have been great, it's been great to see how many kids have been out here and hopefully some of them will want to get into golf after this.
"It's been a fun couple of days. I would love to see more of this. Today got a little more serious, a little more down to business, but it's been so much fun, I think the crowds enjoyed it as well.""It's gone pretty well for me in team events recently," added Olesen. "I don't know if I'm a lucky charm. I feel like I've had good partners, as well.
"It's been fantastic. Team Denmark has got a lot of support so we're really happy with that."
