Aalborg: Scotland`s Marc Warren won his third European Tour title on Sunday when he clinched the Denmark Open by two shots from Welsh veteran Bradley Dredge.

Warren hit five birdies in a final round of 68 for a total of 275 and nine under.

He was pushed all the way by Dredge, who went round in 70 for seven under overall while England`s Phillip Archer was third, five shots off Warren.

"I felt the last couple of years I`ve been close to winning a couple of times but for whatever reason it hasn`t quite happened for me, whether I`ve made mistakes or someone else has played really well," said Warren.

"This summer I feel more confident than I`ve ever done. Today I kept telling myself I was swinging the club really well and I was confident in what I was doing."

Dredge, the halfway leader, was left looking for his first title in six years.

"In a way there are mixed feelings in that if someone said they`d give me second at the beginning of the week it is a great result, considering I`ve not had a chance to win in a long time. But it was a chance to win a tournament," he said.

"Marc did play really well and I didn`t play well enough, but it would have been nice to have pushed him a little harder coming down the last few."
