Links golf course, Constance Belle Mare Plage, Mauritius
Held at Mottram Hall in Cheshire last week, Wesslingh produced a stunning 20 under par total, including a flawless final round, to hold off all challengers and take the ISPS Championship.
The win sees Wesselingh climb to the top of the Senior Tour Order of Merit putting him in a strong position to make it to the MCB Tour Championship held at Constance Belle Mare Plage, Mauritius in December.
Wesselingh was reported as saying, ‘It’s unbelievable, I just can’t believe I’ve done it. Couldn’t believe I’d done it last year and I can’t believe I’ve done it again this year.’
Challenging Wesselingh for the top spot was Paraguay’s Angel Franco coming in second with 16 under par and fellow Englishman Ian Woosnam who came in third.

Welshman Mark Mouland, the first player to win back-to-back Mauritius Golf Open titles, has earned himself a regular place on the lucrative USPGA Champions Tour next year.
Mouland has been a regular visitor to Constance Belle Mare Plage for many years and followed his first win in 2002 by successfully defending his title 12 months later.
The 51-year-old former European Tour player – who has often indulged in his passion for big-game fishing while on the island – joined the senior ranks last year and scored his maiden title success, in the Portuguese Senior Open, a few weeks before flying out from England for the inaugural MCB Tour Championship.
This year Mouland made a limited number of appearances on the Champions Tour after winning a conditional card at the 2011 National Qualifying Tournament. Vut an outstanding performance in this year’s gruelling event in Florida earned Mouland third place with only the top-five finishers being guaranteed full playing rights for 2013.
Of the other MCB Tour Championship entries this year, Sweden’s Anders Forsbrand gained conditional exemption for next season while Australian Peter Fowler and Englishman Barry Lane finished high enough in the final placings to give themselves opportunities of securing a limited number of appearances.
