Scotland's Marc Warren sealed a two-shot victory at the inaugural Made in Denmark in Aalborg after shooting a final-round 68.

Warren was tied for the lead with Weslhman Bradley Dredge heading into Sunday. However, Dredge could only card a 70 with Warren finishing nine under to secure his first European Tour win since 2007 and third overall.

The win was made all the sweeter given Warren's string of recent near-misses, including a third-placed finish at last month's Scottish Open and a share of second place at the 2013 BMW PGA Championship.

"It feels incredible," Warren said. "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.

"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."

Warren, who tied for 15th at the US PGA Championship last week, also paid tribute to the Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort, where more than 80,000 fans were present during the week.

"This is a fantastic event for the European Tour," Warren added. "There's been rumours of an event in Denmark for a few years and now we are here and it is on; it has been incredible.

"The crowds have been amazing. To play in front of that has been amazing. Coming from the PGA last week, it definitely had that same feel to it. Coming down those last four holes, the crowds were so big."

England's Phillip Archer secured third place on four under, while home hero Thomas Bjorn was one shot back along with Oliver Fisher and Eddie Pepperell.
