    England’s Tyrrell Hatton added a fifth European Tour title to his collection after winning the BMW PGA Championship by four shots at Wentworth Club on Sunday.

    With a number of local English contenders fighting it out in Surrey, it was Hatton, who kept a strong hold on his overnight lead by shooting a final-round 67 to finish the event with a winning score of 19 under par.

    The 5 under par for Sunday was enough for the 28-year-old to fend off Victor Perez, who claimed second spot on 15 under, while Andy Sullivan and Patrick Reed secured T3 by finishing a further stroke back.

    Erik van Rooyen and Garrick Higgo concluded as the highest-placed South Africans in what proved to be a testing week for the country’s golfers with only four players making the cut.

    Van Rooyen and Higgo finished on 5 under par and in T27, while Christiaan Bezuidenhout saw out the week on 2 under and in 40th spot.

    A nasty 76 for his final round left Thomas Aiken in 60th position and on 4 over par for the competition.
