Paul Casey shot a flawless bogey-free round of 66 at the Porsche European Open to take the victory by a single shot, his 14th title on the European Tour and his first in five years.

"I get emotional at every victory but this year has been so fantastic", Casey told europeantour.com, who dedicated the trophy to former victor Gordon Brand Jnr following his death at the age of 60 last month.

And Casey's experience came to the fore after a stunning birdie putt from 35 feet 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 since the KLM Open in 2014.

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

Successive birdies on the back nine saw Ritthammer move two shots ahead with five holes remaining but a late wobble allowed MacIntyre to draw level at nine-under-par overall.

Casey led after opening with a 66 at Green Eagle Golf Courses on Thursday, shot a second round 73 but fought back Saturday with a 69. He gave himself a chance by safely finding the green in two only to be left kicking himself a bit as his putt from around 25 feet lacked the necessary pace. Casey said. "I get emotional every victory, but this year has been so fantastic". "I'm over the moon to be European Open champion". "It's just disappointing not to win today".

Casey began the final round one shot behind joint leaders MacIntyre and Ritthammer, but he produced an immaculate round consisting of six birdies and no dropped shots.

Brian Barnes, who beat iconic golfer Jack Nicklaus twice in a day at the Ryder Cup, has died at the age of 74 following a short illness, the European Tour have confirmed.
