Casey ends five-year wait for a win with success in Hamburg

After five years without a European Tour title triumph, Paul Casey won the European Open by a one-shot margin in Hamburg.

"I get emotional at every victory but this year has been so fantastic", Casey, pictured, who defended the Valspar Championship in March on the United States circuit, told europeantour.com, and he dedicated the trophy to former victor Gordon Brand Jnr following his death at the age of 60 last month.

"There are a lot of thoughts going through my head right now but it was definitely an experience for me", Ritthammer said.

It was enough to earn Casey a one-shot victory, as he finished on a six-under 66 and 14 under par overall.

It was a second victory this year for the 42-year-old, who lifted the trophy at the Valspar Championship on the U.S. PGA Tour earlier in the season, and Casey's first win in Europe since the 2014 KLM Open in the Netherlands.

It was a third second of the year for MacIntyre, 23, as he seeks his maiden win on tour.


Casey birdied Nos. 16 and 17 but parred the last hole to give Ritthammer and MacIntyre hope of a potential playoff.

"I didn't really know where I was walking up 15, I saw Paul was holing putts". Casey said. "I get emotional every victory, but this year has been so fantastic".

Home favorite Bernd Ritthammer carded five birdies to join overnight leader Robert MacIntyre at the top of the leaderboard, setting up a tense finale heading into the final round of the European Open in Germany. "It's just disappointing not to win today".

"I'm not used to leading an event on the European Tour".

Casey started the day one shot behind the Scot and Ritthammer at eight under and recorded his best front nine of the week of 31 to move in contention, with MacIntyre still maintaining the one-shot advantage at the turn.
