Morten Ørum Madsen turned around a slow day at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship with a flying birdie-eagle finish.
Despite an early par breaker at the fourth, the Dane was going nowhere after bogeys at the sixth and 10th. But he splashed some red at the 13th before closing with a pair of threes for a 3-under-par 36-33=69 and a halfway total of 7-under. The former South African Open winner was 9-for-14 in fairways, hit 14 greens in regulation and took 30 swishes of the putter. He trails leader Martin Kaymer by six shots with 36 holes to play.

Morten Ørum Madsen returns to the scene of his finest hour when he lines up in this week's South African Open at Glendower.

The Dane shot 19-under-par to score a two-shot victory at this same venue last year. It came in just his 28th career start on the European Tour. He's struggled to consolidate that success, missing 13 cuts in 31 subsequent starts, but has managed six top 20s in eight outings in South Africa to confirm a surprising penchant for this part of the world. The latest was a T16 in the Alfred Dunhill Championship on his final start of 2014.

Morten Ørum Madsen spun a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of last week's South African Open en route to a two-stroke victory, his first on the European Tour.

The 25-year-old Euro Tour sophomore from Denmark started the finale one stroke off defending champion Charl Schwartzel's overnight lead. Madsen then circled five birdies and scrambled twice for par while Schwartzel nearly erased all of six birdies with a pair of 6s, one for a double bogey, the other for a triple. Madsen posted 19-under 269 for the title in just his 28th career start on the circuit. "I couldn’t have asked for a better start to the 2014 Race to Dubai," he said. "I hoped to come here to South Africa to build a solid foundation to take into the new year. But to start with a win – I couldn’t have wished for more. It’s onwards and upwards now." South Africans Jbe' Kruger and Hennie Otto shared runner-up honors.
