A Danish golf sensation is a reality.

the 18-year-old Rasmus Højgaard has won the Mauritius Open after an intense ending where he had in the playoffs against the Italian Renato Paratore and French Antoine Rozner for the victory.

It is his only second tournament on the European tour, since he got the card, and thus is a significant breakthrough after a short time on the big stage.

the Dane was the tredjeyngste wins in Europe-the history is only surpassed by Matteo Manassero, who won twice as a 17-year-old, and new zealander Danny Lee.

The impressive efforts have not gone unnoticed, and Thomas Bjorn were on Twitter ready to crown the teenager during the tournament.

no matter what, so we have a new Danish star! Com so Rasmus, he writes in his tweet.

On the island of Mauritius stood Jeff Goodman and Soren Kjeldsen to bathe their young colleague in the champagne on top of the sensational victory.

The 18-year-old dane was completely understandable rather tongue-tied.

– I don’t know what to say. It is amazing.

– To be on the European Tour so early on is incredible and to win already, now is a dream come true, he said in his sejrsinterview.

Mauritius Open is one of the smallest tournaments on the European Tour, so in addition to the first prize gives the ‘only’ extra spillerettigheder in a single season. But it may prove to be crucial, when you are so early in the season already are sure to have the category as the tournament wins up to and including 2021.

the Rasmus Højgaard is the only player with full spillerettigheder on the European Tour, which is born in this millennium. He secured card through tourskolen.

Along with his identical twin brother Nicolai Højgaard heralds a new era for Danish golf. In 2018 won the Nicolai Højgaard amatørernes the World Cup, while his brother Nicolai reached fifth place on the world ranking. Together with John Axelsen won the Denmark’s first amateur WORLD championships.

Nicolai Højgaard won last year on the Ecco Tour, was named as the ‘Year of Discoveries’ and reached in the autumn of a sensational second place finish in the stronger occupied the KLM Open, where he was close to snatch victory from none other than Sergio Garcia.

Through the invitations he was close to secure the card to this year’s European Tour. But it only succeeds for Rasmus Højgaard, which is now guaranteed European Tour-playing in at least two years.
