England's David Lynn wins Portugal Masters with a nine-birdie 63

London, Oct 14 (ANI): England's David Lynn has won a first European Tour title at the Portugal Masters since his KLM Open win nine years ago after he shot a final-round 63.

According to the BBC, South Africa's Justin Walters finished a shot behind in second.

Overnight leader Paul Waring of England shot a level-par round to tie for third with Scotland's Stephen Gallacher and Austrian Bernd Wiesberger, the report said.

Lynn, runner-up to Rory McIlroy at the 2012 US PGA Championship, started the fourth round in 16th place and came back from six shots off the pace, making nine birdies and a bogey, the report added.

Having birdied the 17th, he then enjoyed a stroke of fortune on the 18th after his approach narrowly escaped the water, before safely two-putting, the report further said. (ANI)
