ABERDEEN, Scotland (AP) Justin Rose won the Scottish Open by two shots after a final round of 6-under 65 on Sunday, sealing back-to-back victories either side of the Atlantic and bolstering his confidence ahead of next week's British Open.

The 2013 U.S. Open champion turned the last day into a procession, rolling in six birdies and going bogey-free on a windless Royal Aberdeen links course.

Unheralded Swede Kristoffer Broberg finished second on 14 under after a 66. That secured him a place at the British Open at Hoylake, along with other top-10 finishers Tyrrell Hatton and Scott Jamieson.

Rose, who started the day tied for the lead with Marc Warren, eased to a first win in Europe since 2007 and backed up his victory at the Quicken Loans National at Congressional last month.
