The European Tour broke new ground at the Made In Denmark presented by FREJA as Christopher Aitken won the first ever European eTour Championship.

The event - in partnership with Dreamhack - brought eight of the world's best golf gamers to Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort to battle it out for a prize fund of US$5,000.

Playing World Golf Tour by Topgolf, the eight players went head to head in match play, with the quarter-finals taking place on Thursday in Farsø.

The winners advanaced to the semi-finals on Friday morning, with Aitken - known by his gaming name of F Magnets - advancing to take on Canada's Jody Swim in the final.

In the final match up, top seed Aitken had too much for Swim - known as WalkofLife - and made sure the trophy would head to the United Kingdom with a 5&3 victory.

"I knew I needed to bring my A-Game to the final and I did," he said.
