SEVILLE, SPAIN (AP) - Soren Kjeldsen has shot an even-par 72 to win the Andalucian Open by three strokes on Sunday.

The 33-year-old Dane, who shot a course-record 62 to lead by one shot after the third round, totaled 14-under 274 to hold off David Drysdale of Scotland (74).

Kjeldsen also won last year’s Volvo Masters in Spain.

Coming off a bogey that left him tied with Drysdale, Kjeldsen hit into the lake at the 16th but saved par by rolling in an 18-footer.

Kjeldsen holed an even longer birdie at the 17th as Drysdale bogeyed to trail by two shots going into the last.

Francesco Molinari of Italy (70) and Graeme Storm of England (69) finished joint third at 10 under.

Colin Montgomerie (74) ended his 500th European Tour event at even par.
