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.

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