Stuart Manley closed with a 3-under 69 on Sunday to earn a 2-stroke win at the Finnish Challenge.

Manley finished at 21-under-par 267. It was the first Challenge Tour victory for the Welshman.

The 34-year-old tripped to a bogey at the first, but came back with birdies on three, five and seven at Kytaja Golf.

Around the turn, Manley connected on back-to-back birdie efforts at 12 and 13 to move to 22-under. After four pars in a row, Manley bogeyed the last to trim his winning margin to two.

Jose-Filipe Lima fired a 5-under 67 to grab second place at minus-19. Jamie Elson (68) and Jens Fahrbring (72) shared third at 16-under 272.
