    England’s Sam Horsfield won his second event in three European Tour appearances after clinching the Celtic Classic on Sunday.

    Horsfield, who edged Thomas Detry by one shot at the English Open two weeks ago, again got the better of the Belgian in the final round at Celtic Manor – this time by two strokes after a week of enthralling golf in Wales.

    A round of 67 was enough to beat the rest of the field for Horsfield to finish on 18 under par for the event, despite rain threatening to interrupt the conclusion of inaugural Celtic Classic.

    South Africa’s Jacques Kruyswijk finished his week on a decent note by shooting a final-round 65 – claiming T14 with a score of 11 under par.

    Wilco Nienaber’s good form also continued as he finished a stroke behind Kruyswijk on 10 under par in what proved to be a rather tough week for the South Africans in the field.

    Dean Burmester and Justin Harding had to settle for a T47 finish on Sunday with a score of six under, while Louis de Jager suffered a tough final round as he concluded with a 74 and in T63.

    The European Tour will now remain at the Celtic Manor resort in Wales for this coming weekend’s Wales Open.
