GLASGOW, Scotland, July 12 (UPI) -- German Martin Kaymer shot a 2-under-par 69 and won the Scottish Open Sunday, his second straight title on the European Tour.

Kaymer, who also won the Open de France last week, finished at 15-under 269, two shots ahead of Raphael Jacquelin (66) and Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano 72,

Adam Scott (66) and Soren Kjeldsen (70) shared fourth place, another stroke back.

"If you win a tournament anywhere, you take something from it, especially coming here to Scotland, the home of golf, it is unbelievable to win here," Kaymer said after his victory at the Loch Lomond Golf Club in Glasgow.

The 24-year-old Kaymer has won four European Tour events in a year and a half.
