Paul Casey ends two year winless drought at Irish Open

Maynooth, Ireland:

England's Paul Casey sensationally eagled the last hole to end a two-year victory drought and capture the Irish Open at Carton House, Maynooth, on Sunday.

The 35-year-old came from four shots behind at the start of the final round to win by three shots with a six-under-par score of 66 for a 14-under par total.

It is his first win since winning the 2011 season-opening Volvo Champions event in Bahrain.

England's Robert Rock (71) birdied the closing two holes to share runner-up spot with Joost Luiten of the Netherlands - it was the second time in four years the Englishman had filled that position in the event.
