HILVERSUM, Netherlands (AP) — Peter Hanson of Sweden eagled the final hole to win the KLM Open, his first title in two years.

Hanson holed a 35-footer on the 18th green Sunday for a final-round 67 to win by two strokes with a 14-under 266 on the Hilversumsche course.

Spain's Pablo Larrazabal (70) and Scotland's Richie Ramsay (67) shared second place at 12 under.

Hanson's victory is the fifth in succession for a member of the European Ryder Cup team on either the European Tour or PGA Tour since qualifying ended last month.
