Poste de Flacq, Mauritius (SportsNetwork.com) - Paul Wesselingh carded a 3- under 69 on Sunday to cruise to a 5-stroke victory at the MCB Tour Championship.

Wesselingh wrapped up his fourth European Senior Tour title of the season at 14-under-par 202 at Constance Belle Mare Plage. He is the first player to record that many wins in a season since Boonchu Ruangkit in 2010.

Also with the win, Wesselingh claimed the top spot on the European Senior Tour's Order of Merit.

"It feels like it was meant to be. I feel incredibly honored and delighted," he said. "It's hard to believe what I have done this year, really. To win four times and to win the Order of Merit is an incredible achievement."

David Frost (66) and Miguel Angel Martin (67) shared second place at 9-under 207, while Pedro Linhart (68) and Roger Chapman (69) tied for fourth at minus-8.

Colin Montgomerie (74) finished in solo sixth at 6-under.

Wesselingh entered the final round with a 3-stroke lead and he was never threatened, recording a birdies at the fourth, seventh and eighth during an outward 33 to make to turn at 14-under.

The Englishman then posted two bogeys and a pair of birdies over his final nine holes to roll to the easy win.
