VYSOKY UJEZD, Czech Republic (AP) Thomas Pieters shot a 3-under 69 on Sunday to win the Czech Masters by three strokes for his first European Tour victory.

Pieters overcame a bad start with a double bogey on the third hole by making four birdies the rest of the way to hold off Pelle Edberg of Sweden. The 23-year-old Belgian finished with a 20-under 268 at the Albatross Golf course near Prague.

"To be a European Tour winner it's an amazing feeling right now,"Pieters said. "Right now it means everything, you work for it all year long, up till now my whole life. I played really well after making an early double."
