Johansson wins sixth European Tour title at Russian Open

NAKHABINO, Russia -- Per-Ulrik Johansson had five birdies
and finished with a 5-under 67 Sunday to win the Russian Open by
six strokes.

The Swede finished with an overall 23-under 265 to win his sixth
European Tour title.

Robert-Jan Derksen of the Netherlands was second with a 69, and
Alan McLean of Scotland (68) was third.

The 40-year-old Johansson, who last won at Smurfit Kappa
European Open in 1997, had four birdies on the front nine and one
on the 11th.

Johansson's total score was one shot lower than the tournament
record of 22-under by 2006 winner Alejandro Canizares of Spain.
However, Johansson's score will not be recognized because players
were allowed to move the ball within a club's distance due to the
water-soaked course at Moscow's Le Meridien Golf and Country Club.
