Geneva, Switzerland (SportsNetwork.com) - Byeong-hun An fired an 8-under 64 on Saturday to come from behind and win the Rolex Trophy.
An collected his first career win on the European Challenge Tour at 19-under- par 269.
Benjamin Hebert (72) finished alone in second place at Golf Club de Geneve at 16-under.

Sam Hutsby (67) took fifth at minus-14.
An entered the day seven shots behind Jensen, but he started to make his move with back-to-back birdies at the fourth and fifth. He rolled in another gain at the eighth to move to 14-under.
An then caught fire around the turn, starting with three birdies in a four- hole stretch from the 10th. After parring the 14th, he reached 19-under with consecutive gains at the 15th and 16th. He parred the last two holes to finish there.
Jensen, meanwhile, recorded bogeys at the fifth and ninth around a birdie at the seventh to make the turn at 17-under.
He would drop two more shots at the 11th and 18th to end four shots off the pace.
