The Englishman was joined by Austrian Bernd Wiesberger and overnight leaders Robert MacIntyre and Bernd Ritthammer at 12 under par with three holes remaining during a thrilling finale at Green Eagle Golf Courses.
And Casey’s experience came to the fore after a stunning long birdie putt at the 16th proved to be the turning point as he carded a birdie-birdie-par finish to claim his 14th European Tour victory in Hamburg—his first victory since the KLM Open in 2014.
Casey teed off the day with one shot off the pace of the Scot and Ritthammer at eight under and recorded an almost flawless front nine of 31 to move in contention, with MacIntyre still maintaining the one-shot advantage at the turn.
The 23-year-old’s only blemish at the 12th left the door open for Casey, who replied with a birdie at the 13th, to get his nose in front before moving back ahead at the 16th following a four-way tie for the lead.
Here is how Englishman, Paul Casey, won the 2019 Porsche European Open title for the first time in five years.
