Fisher wins Irish Open

- The Englishman Ross Fisher won the Irish Open on Sunday with a two-stroke lead over Padraig Harrington to sign local card with 65 shots, six under par in the final round.

Fisher started the day with a lead of one stroke, but widened the gap to three to sink a putt for eagle on the par-5 seventh hole. The Englishman finished with a 266, 18 under par, in the field of Killarney Golf and Fishing Club.

The fourth title in his career Fisher allowed him place as sixth place in the current charts that determine the nine slots of the Europe team that will play the Ryder Cup.

The Spanish Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano (67) and the Englishman Chris Wood (68) shared third place with an accumulated of 270.
