PARIS, July 8 (UPI) -- Germany's Marcel Siem collected his first European Tour victory since 2004 Sunday, firing a 4-under 67 to claim the Open de France.

Siem, whose last victory came eight years ago at the Dunhill Championship, didn't record a bogey until the final hole, finishing at at 8-under 276.

That was good for one-stroke victory over Francesco Molinari, who carded a 7-under 64.

The German essentially sealed the victory with a 4-foot birdie putt at the 15th hole.

France's Raphael Jacquelin stumbled to three bogeys over his last 10 holes, ending with a 2-under 69 for third place at minus-6.

Knotted for fourth place at 5-under 279 were third-round co-leader David Howell (72), David Lynn (68) and Ian Poulter (69).
