BALTRAY, DROGHEDA, Ireland, July 25 (UPI) -- Australian Brett Rumford posted a five-under 67 Sunday for a four-shot victory at the Irish Open.

Rumford finished at 14-under-par 274 for his second career triumph on the European Tour.

Padraig Harrington, seeking to become the first Irishman since John O'Leary in 1982 to win this event, fell short after a round of 67 left him at 10-under-par 278 along with Raphael Jacquelin.

Peter Lonard, the veteran Australian whose quest for a first European Tour title continues, was one shot further back at nine-under-par 279.

Rumford earned his playing status on the European Tour with a win at last year's Aa St. Omer Open.

Rumford trailed Lonard by a stroke to start the final round. But, while Lonard parred each of his first four holes, Rumford birdied three in a row starting at the second to take the lead at 12-under.
