Dyson into top 30 after Dutch win
England's Simon Dyson captured a third KLM Open in six years in Holland - and this one took him into the world's top 30 for the first time in his career.
The 33-year-old from York, a Walker Cup team-mate of Luke Donald and Paul Casey in 1999, birdied four of the last seven holes to beat compatriot David Lynn, champion himself in 2004, by one shot.
Rory McIlroy finished third, good enough to take him back to third in the world rankings, while number two Lee Westwood's closing 66 lifted him from 18th to fifth.
Dyson's victory was also his second in seven weeks. He took the Irish Open at the end of July.
Also round in 66, Dyson had to wait to see if his 12 under par total of 268 was good enough.
Lynn, whose triumph on the same Hilversum course seven years ago was his only one in 351 European Tour events, and Scot Gary Orr were both on the 16th two behind.
They did well to save par there, then Lynn's 15-foot birdie attempt at the next hung on the lip.
It left both of them needing to eagle the par five last and while Orr's chance went after he pushed his drive and had to lay up - in the end he took six to drop to fourth - Lynn had a 30-footer to force a play-off, but ran it wide.
Dyson joins a list of three-time winners of the title that includes Seve Ballesteros and Bernhard Langer and he said: "I'm absolutely delighted to be on the same trophy as names like those two.
"It's something special, a dream come true really. To win any title once is tough, but to win it three times is a fantastic feeling. I started a bit shakily - my timing was just a little bit off - but after my bogey on 11 I played pretty flawless golf."
