Spain’s Adrian Otaegui roared back from four shots behind to deny England’s Matt Wallace victory at the Scottish Championship at Fairmont St Andrews.

World number 248 Otaegui, 27, carded a stunning final-round 63 on the resort’s Torrance course to win by four stokes.

Overnight leader Wallace was second after a 71, with compatriots Aaron Rai (66), Chris Paisley (68) and Garrick Porteous (71) making up the top five.

After three 66s to start, Wallace had three bogeys on a haphazard final day.

But Otaegui, who had set the pace on the first day with a peerless 62, carded 10 birdies to romp to his third European Tour victory.

Ewen Ferguson was the leading home player, finishing in a tie for 11th after a closing 67.
