Cheshire, England (Sports Network) - Paul Wesselingh posted a sparkling, 9- under 64 on Sunday and cruised to a 4-stroke win at the PGA Seniors Championship.

Wesselingh, who captured his only other European Senior Tour victory at this event last year, finished at 20-under-par 272 at De Vere Mottram Hall, four strokes clear of Angel Franco, who shot 66.

"To win it two years on the trot with this quality of field is incredible," said Wesselingh. "I just played the best I've ever played today, and my putter went red hot, I just holed everything."

Ian Woosnam shot 65 and ended in solo third at 15-under, while Mike Cunning (71) and Steen Tinning (70) tied for fourth at minus-12.

Wesselingh's bogey-free 64 marked the tournament's low round of the week.

The Englishman began Sunday one shot ahead of the chasing pack and promptly birdied five of his first 10 holes. He added a decisive cushion with a hatrick of birdies from the 14th, then closed in style with another gain at the last to lock up the comfortable repeat victory.
