Paul Casey wins Irish Open by 3 strokes
MAYNOOTH, Ireland (AP) - Paul Casey made a 50-foot eagle putt on the 18th hole Sunday and won the Irish Open by three strokes.
The 35-year-old Englishman trailed by four shots entering the final round. He closed with a 5-under 67 that featured a stretch of five birdies in six holes from No. 8 to No. 13. He finished at 14-under 274 in winning his 14th career title.
Casey was sidelined at the start of the 2012 season with a shoulder injury from a snowboarding accident. This is his first win since the 2011 season-opening Volvo Champions in Bahrain.
England's Robert Rock (71) and third-round leader Dutchman Joost Luiten (74) shared second at 277.
