Stroud runner-up in Scotland after closing 68 10-04-2015
Brooks Koepka
Chris Stroud finished with a 4-under-par 34-34=68 at St. Andrews to take tied second in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship on 16-under 272. The American's decision to head across the pond after missing four straight cuts on the PGA TOUR paid off in style as he secured his best worldwide finish of the year. Stroud eventually ended two shots behind winner Thorbjorn Olesen but had his eyes on the trophy at one point. Despite bogeys at 1 and 6, he circled birdies at 3, 4, 5, 7, 10 and 11 to hit 15-under with seven to play. His chances nosedived with a bogey-6 at 16 but one final birdie at the Old Course's iconic 18th lifted him to T2 alongside fellow compatriot Brooks Koepka and completed a memorable week.

Thorbjorn Olesen
With a final-round 1-under-par 36-35=71 at St. Andrews, Thorbjørn Olesen secured his third European Tour title via a two-shot victory at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland. Three clear overnight, the Dane kicked off with an opening birdie but then wobbled with a double bogey-6 at No. 2 and a bogey at the next. That blew the tournament wide open but he hit back with birdies at 4 and 5 and was steady after that, adding 12 pars and giving himself daylight by dropping a 50ft bomb for birdie at 15. His victory total of 18-under 270 put him two clear of American duo Brooks Koepka and Chris Stroud while Chris Wood, Bernd Wiesberger, Benjamin Hebert, Joakim Lagergren and Kiradech Aphibarnrat were a further shot back at 15-under.
