Paul Casey expects he can take his form to the BMW PGA Championship after winning his third title.
The Englishman made a round of 66 to clinch victory.
Casey birdied the 16th and 17th holes at a dramatic finale to finish one shot at Bernd Ritthammer, Matthias Schwab and Bob MacIntyre.
It’s Casey first win on European soil since the KLM Open in 2014 but his attention has turned into the PGA Championship.
“I’m very excited, I love that golf course,” said Casey. “I’ve got two successes about there [he won the World Match Play Championship at Wentworth in 2006].
“You speak about the European Open and viewing it as a child; Wentworth is the place it started for me”
Casey started the last one stroke behind Ritthammer and MacIntyre but pulled apparent on the home stretch with all both the sixth and fifth birdies.
“It was fine to make the putts as it counted,” said Casey, who dedicated his 14th European Seminar title to the late Gordon Brand Jnr.
“That really was the secret this week. The ball striking has been exceptional. I gave myself that my strength and a awful lot of chances, and I was able to keep this golf course that was tough under control.
“I volunteered at this event in Walton Heath in 1991 – like a standard-bearer – walking around the golf course. Walton Heath is not far from where I grew up as a child, I never thought I’d be sitting here with the trophy, which can be very trendy.
“I’ve been lucky to win at Wentworth, and to win this one feels really special. We had some amazing players in the area, and the players pushed men to us .
“I feel as healthy at 42 as I’ve ever felt. I have a lot of excitement and an comprehension of my golfing game. I love working hard for this and also the quest of being as good as I can be.”
