The 27 year old Englishman started his final round with back-to-back gains, picked up further shots on the fifth and ninth and then holed from six feet on the ninth to reach 15 under par.

Dantorp's fellow Swede Alexander Bjork, American Rickie Fowler, New Zealand's Ryan Fox, England's Aaron Rai, Belgian Thomas Pieters, German Marcel Siem and South African pair Dean Burmester and Brandon Stone were two off the pace at 13 under on a bunched leaderboard.
