Thomas won the Made in Denmark tournament with a last round -6 under par 65, and a winning total of -17 under par, carding birdie at the last three holes. He is hoping it will be a good enough result to get him into the Ryder Cup for Team Europe;

“I really needed a good finish,I saw I was one back walking to the green on 16 and I hit a great shot there but I knew I needed to make at least one more.”

“To finish with two more birdies was pretty cool.”

“It’s all about winning tournaments. I’m really happy with this one.”

“That was one of my goals, to just have one every year, just so you know you’re improving and you can win. That’s very important. I’m very, very happy.”

“He (Ryder Cup Captain Darren Clarke) has got plenty of good players to pick from, so if he doesn’t pick me, then so be it and I’ll work my butt off to get there in the next one.”

“But I’ve done all I can now and I’m just really pleased with this win to be honest.”

For Bradley Dredge it was another second placed finish at this tournament, a final round -4 under par not enough to give him the win, he had to settle for a -16 under total;

“I really enjoy it here. I get on well with the guys and enjoy the golf course. The crowds are great, so I’ll always be back.”

“I knew I was playing pretty good, I struggled a bit with the driver on the weekend which was a bit annoying.”

“I really got my eye in on the greens today which was nice.”

“There’s loads of positives. I just have to practice the wedge game and hopefully I’ll be up there again.”

“I’m in a good position but I want to win some tournaments. It’s nice to come in second but at the end of the day, I want to be holding the trophy. I’ll come back next year and have another go.”

Adrian Otaegui and David Lipsky, both players had -4 under 67 today, tied in third place, at -15 under for the tournament
