Paul Casey won his first European Tour title for five years with a win in one fell swoop at the Porsche European Open.

Casey shot a six-under 66 in Hamburg to finish for the Bob MacIntyre of Scotland, the German Bernd Ritthammer and Matthias Schwab of Austria.

It was a second 2019 victory for the 42-year-old after being successful at the Valspar Championship on the PGA Tour.

It was a third second of the year for MacIntyre, 23, looking for his first win on tour.

Casey started one shot behind the joint leaders MacIntyre and Ritthammer in the final round, but he produced a flawless round of six birds and no bogey.

Schwab finished on 13-under, but was overtaken by Casey's Birdies on 16 and 17, although the English golfer left the door open because he only tripled for one last par.

Casey & # 39; s goal of 14 under was too much for MacIntyre and Ritthammer, who both left putts on the last green to force a play-off.

The Englishman, a four-fold Ryder Cup player, celebrated his first victory in Europe since the KLM Open 2014 in the Netherlands.

"This is an incredibly prestigious tournament," Casey told Sky Sports. "I am very happy to become a European Open champion."
