VILAMOURA, Portugal (AP) — Shane Lowry of Ireland won the Portugal Masters on Sunday after a final-round 5-under 66 to edge out England's Ross Fisher by one stroke with a 270 total.

Lowry started the round four shots off the lead, but he made an eagle on the par-4 11th to move ahead of overnight leader Bernd Wiesberger.

The 25-year-old Lowry then traded the lead with Fisher before taking advantage of Fisher's bogey on the 16th with a birdie on the 17th hole.

Fisher had one last chance after Lowry bogeyed the 18th, but the Englishman also had a bogey to allow Lowry to claim his second career European Tour win.

Lowry shot 14 under through the four rounds on the Oceanico Victoria Golf Course.
