Muscat, Oman (SportsNetwork.com) - Roope Kakko closed with a 3-under 69 on Sunday to win the National Bank of Oman Golf Classic by two strokes.

Kakko, who won for the second time on the European Challenge Tour, ended at 14-under-par 274 at Almouj Golf, The Wave.

The Finn flew out of the gate with three birdies in the first four holes, then cruised home from there. Kakko dropped a shot on the 10th, but bounced back with a birdie on the par-3 14th. He parred the last four to seal the win.

Lucas Bjerregaard fired a 5-under 67 to take second place at minus-12. Daniel Im mixed four birdies and four bogeys in a round of even-par 72. That dropped him from second to solo third at 10-under 278.

Matt Ford (67) and Brandon Stone (68) shared fourth place at 7-under 281.
