Paul Casey won his first European Tour title for five years using a one-stroke victory in the Porsche European Open.
Casey shot a six-under 66 to complete ahead of the Bob MacIntyre of Scotland, Matthias Schwab and German Bernd Ritthammer of Austria.
It was a second success for its 42-year-old of 2019 after success at the Valspar Championship at the PGA Tour.
As he attempts his inaugural win it turned out to be a third minute of the year for MacIntyre, 23.
Casey began the last round one shot behind Ritthammer and leaders MacIntyre, however he produced a perfect round of not just one bogey and six birdies.
Schwab had finished at 13-under, but was overtaken by Casey’s birdies at 16 and 17, even though the English golfer left the door open because he might just three-putt to get a level five at the last.
The goal of 14 beneath of casey was too much for Ritthammer and MacIntyre, who left handed short on the last green to force a play-off.
A Ryder Cup participant, the Englishman, celebrated his first win in Europe since the 2014 KLM Open in the Netherlands.
“This is an incredibly prestigious tournament,” Casey told Sky Sports. “I’m on the moon to become European Open winner”
