Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts captured his first European Tour title in seven years on Sunday, winning the French Open by one shot after a final round of 72.
A spectacular chip-in eagle on the 14th had him back in the lead, but he would find the water on the next to surrender a double-bogey and slip a shot behind Hansen.
It was Colsaerts' third European Tour triumph in total and his first since the Volvo World Match Play Championship in May 2012.
"It's very, very special - the French Open for me is very special, because I'm French-speaking", said Colsaerts.
Down in shocking 424th position in the world rankings, Colsaerts went into the week anxious about retaining his card on Tour, but the newly married father-of-one now has his status guaranteed for two more years. "I've got a gameplan but I need to be pushing on to try to win the tournament".
