DURHAM, N.C. -- Former Blue Devil Julian Suri was crowned victorious on Sunday following the completion of the Made in Denmark tournament, an event in which he scored a 64 (-7) to round out a 265-stroke total, good enough for 19 under.
Beginning the final day of action two strokes behind the lead, Suri fought to claim the lead from Englishman David Horsey. Following three consecutive birdies on Nos. 2, 3 and 4, and a pair on Nos. 7 and 8, Suri capped off a stretch of eighteen bogey-free holes that featured seven total birdies that resulted in a four-stroke margin.
Horsey, who won the tournament in 2015 and who was still in the hunt on the final hole, needed a birdie to pull even with Suri who played safely on 18 and recorded par. Despite his efforts, Horsey closed out his day with a triple bogey that essentially placed the trophy in Suri’s hands, a victory that came in just his seventh European Tour event.
Suri’s 64 (-7) was the strongest score of the field on Sunday, and it was nothing short of an illustration of how his week went. Under par all four days of action, he tallied 23 birdies, 1 eagle, and only six bogeys in total.
As a result of his win on Sunday, Suri becomes the third American to win on both the Challenge and European Tours, sharing the honor with Brooks Koepka and Peter Uihlein.
Suri’s Round Breakdown:
R1: 67 (-4)
R2: 69 (-2)
R3: 65 (-6)
R4: 64 (-7)
Overall: 265 (-19)
