Paul Casey won his first European Tour title for five years with a one-stroke victory.
Casey took a 66 to complete ahead of Scotland’s Bob MacIntyre, Matthias Schwab and German Bernd Ritthammer of Austria.
It was a victory of 2019 for its 42-year-old after victory at the Valspar Championship at the PGA Tour.
As he seeks his win it was a third second of this year for MacIntyre, 23.
Casey started the final round one shot behind joint leaders MacIntyre and Ritthammer, however he made a round of not one bogey and six birdies.
Schwab had ended 13-under, but had been overtaken by Casey’s birdies at 16 and 17, even though the English golfer left the door open as he could only three-putt for a level five at the past.
Casey’s target of 14 under was a lot for MacIntyre and Ritthammer, who left putts short on the green to force a play-off.
A four-time Ryder Cup player, the Englishman, celebrated his first triumph since the 2014 KLM Open in the Netherlands in Europe.
“This is a remarkably prestigious tournament,” Casey told Sky Sports. “I am over the moon to become European Open winner”
