Dyson charges to Dunhill golf win
Simon Dyson shot a 6-under-par 66 Monday and finished off a 3-stroke victory at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championships in Scotland.
The final round was played Monday because windy conditions forced a cancellation of play Saturday, pushing the third round to Sunday the final round to Monday.
Dyson opened the fourth round a stroke behind Luke Donald but surged to a 4-stroke lead with six birdies in his first seven holes Monday. He had another birdie at No. 12. A bogey at the par-4 17th was the only blemish on his scorecard for the round.
The Dunhill win was the fourth European Tour title for Dyson, who won August's KLM Open to end a three-year victory drought.
Donald, the third-round lead, fought through a 1-over 73 Monday and wound up tied for ninth at 13-under.
