Having dominated the Turkish Open this week, Thorbjorn Olesen rounded off a deserved win on Sunday.
Denmark's Thorbjorn Olesen held on after his seven-shot lead was reduced to one to capture the Turkish Airlines Open's one million euro winner's cheque at Belekyesterday.
Olesen saw his seven-shot overnight advantage briefly cut to one stroke after a final round charge from David Horsey, but dug deep to post a two-under 69 and claim his fourth European Tour title. His last win was at the Dunhill Links Championship in October 2015.
Scott Hend, in 34th position, leads the two Australians in the field at 2 under and 13 shots from the lead while Nathan Holman just made the cut at 4 over par.
Horsey birdied 12 to close to within touching distance of Olesen, who then picked up a shot at the same hole, despite finding the bunker with his tee shot and stretched his lead further at the par-three 14th after sending a tee-shot to within inches of the hole.
Olesen said he was proud of the way he played the round, especially after his 62 the previous day.
It is Olesen's fourth European Tour success and has taken his career earnings through the €7 million barrier in his seventh season on the tour.

During the investigation they will focus on the crew on board, potential mechanical problems and the weather during the incident. The chartered 737 he had been using-with its notoriously hard landings-had just slid off the runway after landing at LaGuardia.
"I feel like I've been up in contention in a lot of big events", the Dane said.
"I think I found something in Portugal", said Olesen. I didn't score that well, but I felt like I was playing a lot better, so I was hoping for something good to come.
On the 18th, Olesen stuck a wedge from 120 foot out to within five feet and rolled in one final birdie for the course record and big lead heading into the weekend in Turkey.
"After nine holes there were a few guys shooting low numbers so all of a sudden there was a lot of pressure on me".
"I just wanted to put a little pressure on early doors and thankfully was able to do that, but just ran out of a bit of steam there on the back nine".
U.S. Masters champion Danny Willett, the only player in the top three of the money list competing in Antalya after number one Henrik Stenson and third-ranked Rory McIlroy opted out, struggled to a 74 for 143.
