The 35-year-old led after every round and having started the day with a one-shot advantage, dominated proceedings with eight birdies in a closing 64 to finish at twenty-one-under and claim his eighth European Tour title.
Wiesberger’s triumph means nobody has won more than his four titles on the European Tour since the start of the 2019 season – he joins World Number One Dustin Johnson on that mark – and it is likely to lift him back into the Official World Golf Ranking’s top 50.
"It's unbelievable. I've said it all week, I really like it here, playing here is good for my confidence especially after a couple of tougher weeks so it's a special place for me," said Wiesberger.
"Played really good golf. It brings out the best in me, I got it going when I needed to so really enjoyable."
Italy’s Guido Migliozzi shot a closing 63 to finish second on sixteen-under, with English pair Richard Bland and Jordan Smith sharing third with Australia’s Jason Scrivener on fifteen-under.
