Sweden’s Marcus Kinhult won his lady European Visit title by beating Britain’s Matt Wallace at the last opening of the English Bosses.

The pair were secured on 15 under the last, yet an enraged Wallace missed a 15-footer before Kinhult sunk a 10-foot birdie for a last cycle 70.

Britain’s Eddie Pepperell completed with Wallace and Scotland’s Robert MacIntyre on 15 under with a six-under 66.

Nearby host Tommy Fleetwood completed tied tenth after a last cycle 73.

Kinhult, who birdied the last two gaps where Wallace could just standard, disclosed to Sky Sports: “I’m stunned. I don’t have a clue what happened the most recent two hours. I was behind and Matt looked extremely strong however I just figured out how to make those two birdies.

“There’s a great deal experiencing your psyche and feelings yet I’m simply so glad to deal with those quite well. This amusement is so unusual, it’s little edges.

“I’ve been sitting tight for this minute for a long time.”

Wallace was left disappointed on a warm day in Southport by his inability to benefit from a one-shot lead going down 17. That came due to a successive intruder for 22-year-old Kinhult on 15 and 16.
