Barry Lane shot a final round of 66 to win the British Masters title at the Forest of Arden by three shots.

Lane, who had begun the final round a shot behind overnight leader Paul Broadhurst, registered his first European Tour win for 10 years.

The winner sealed his triumph with a birdie at the tricky par five 17th.

Argentine pair Eduardo Romero and Angel Cabrera shared second with Patrik Sjoland in fourth, while Colin Montgomerie finished 10 shots back.

For Broadhurst, it was a disappointing end to tournament - the Englishman, who played in the Ryder Cup 13 years ago, could only manage a round of 72.

The victor could reflect on a round which included a chip-in eagle and five birdies.

Lane had looked in danger of losing the advantage when he three-putted for a bogey at the 15th.

But back-to-back birdies at the 16th and 17th gave him a comfortable cushion.

The 43-year-old last won on the European Tour at the 1994 Balearic Open, though he collected the Accenture World Championship of Golf title in 1995.

But this win was worth 266,660 and moves him into contention for a Ryder Cup return 11 years after his only appearance at The Belfry.

His final round of 65 was matched by Ulster's Darren Clarke, who earned a share of fifth place along with Broadhurst, Denmark's Anders Hansen and Australian Nick O'Hern.

Scotland's Alastair Forsyth was a shot further back on 278.
