Adrian Otaegui felt a "win was coming" after a storming birdie flourish in the final round saw him take home the Scottish Championship.

The Spaniard, who started the week with a 10-under 62 on Thursday, was four shots back of overnight leader Matt Wallace ahead of Sunday's play.

But a final-round 63, which included 10 birdies and a solitary bogey, saw him finish at 23 under, four strokes clear of the Englishman.

It marks the third European Tour title of Otaegui's career but his first at a strokeplay event.

"I didn't know [if this would be the week to win], after one round you still have three rounds and lots of golf to play," he said. 

"Anything can happen, you can have a bad hole and lose the momentum. I've been doing good work the last few weeks after the lockdown as well.

"I didn't know if it'd be this week but knew I'd give it everything and I felt like the win was coming."

Wallace never really got the momentum going at Fairmont St Andrews on Sunday, as four birdies were negated by three bogeys in his round of one under.

Rai Aaron finished six shots back in third, while English compatriots Chris Paisley and Garrick Porteous were both 16 under.
