BEIJING — Alexander Bjork of Sweden shot a final-round 65 to claim a one-stroke victory for his maiden win on the European Tour at the China Open.

Bjork, who trailed by one stroke after three rounds, had a 72-hole total of 18-under 270 on the Topwin Golf and Country Club.

Adrian Otaegui of Spain, who had moved into a share of the third-round lead with England's Matt Wallace after shooting 67 on Saturday, matched that score on Sunday to finish in second.

Wallace finished tied for third with two others after a 68, two strokes behind.
