It took the low round of the tournament to keep Nanaimo’s Tony Hatchwell from winning B.C. Golf’s senior men’s championship.

Port Moody’s Gudmund Lindbjerg shot a three-under-par 69 in Thursday’s final round to eke out a one-stroke victory over Hatchwell at the Squamish Valley Golf Club.

The Nanaimo golfer carded a 71 on Wednesday to climb to second place, then followed that up with a 72 in the final round.

Lindbjerg has now won four straight B.C. senior men’s championships. Hatchwell was the champion in 2006.
