Kharkov, Ukraine (Sports Network) - Daan Huizing fired his second straight 5- under 67 on Sunday and that helped him come from behind to win the Kharkov Superior Cup.

Huizing, who won for the second time in three weeks on the European Challenge Tour, finished at 15-under-par 273.

The 22-year-old Dutchman birdied the first, then traded a bogey for a birdie from the third. After four pars in a row, Huizing birdied the ninth for the third day in a row to make the turn at 12-under.

Huizing stumbled to another bogey at the 11th, but atoned for that mistake with a birdie on No. 12. Third-round leader Sihwan Kim struggled to a double- bogey at the 13th to slip 14-under, where he led Huizing by two.

The duo, who were paired together in the final group, both birdied the 14th. Kim tripped to a bogey on 15 to cut his lead to one. Kim dropped another stroke on the 16th, while Huizing birdied that hole for a two-stroke swing.

Huizing, now leading by one, came right back with a birdie on No. 17 to push his lead to two. They matched pars on 18 to give Huizing the title.

Kim closed with a 70 to take second at minus-13, while Daniel Brooks shot 4- under 68 to grab third at 12-under 276. Last week's winner Andrea Pavan posted a 2-under 70 to take fourth at minus-11.
