Casey wins at The Belfry
Casey went round in 71

England's Paul Casey won the Benson and Hedges International Open by four shots from Padraig Harrington at The Belfry.

Casey birdied the fifth, sixth, 12th, 15th and 17th holes, while dropping shots at the ninth, two at the short 14th and 18th for 12-under-par.

Harrington gained a stroke at the first but handed shots back at nine, 12, 14 and 17.

Former Open champion Paul Lawrie kick-started his charge with a hole-in-one at the par-three seventh.

But a double bogey via the water at 18 saw him slip to a 69 and six under.

Kiwi Stephen Scahill, who led with Harrington and Casey on 10 under at the start of the day, slipped back to six under.

Early starter Richard Johnson of Sweden fired a course-record 64 to climb to four under.

Final-round leaderboard:

-11 P Casey (Eng) (71)
-7 P Harrington (Ire) (75)
-6 P Lawrie (Sco) (69), S Scahill (Nzl) (76), R Muntz (Ned) (72)
-4 R Johnson (Swe) (64)

Selected others:

-3 A Cabrera (Arg) (78)
+1 P McGinley (Ire) (73)
+2 L Westwood (Eng) (72), C Montgomerie (Sco) (76)
+5 J Rose (Eng) (71)
