VILAMOURA, Portugal, Oct. 14 (UPI) -- Shane Lowry corralled his first European Tour victory as a pro Sunday, edging Ross Fisher by a single stroke to claim the Portugal Masters title.

Fisher's attempt for a par putt on the last hole didn't fall, handing Lowry his first victory since taking an event as an amateur in 2009.

The Irishman carded a 5-under 66 Sunday -- his low round of the tournament. He came into the day three shots behind then-leader Bernd Wiesberger.

Fisher, seeking his first crown since the 2010 Irish Open, settled for sole possession of second place at minus-4 following a round of 1-under 70.

Michael Campbell (68) claimed third place at 12- under while Wiesberger stumbled into fourth at 11-under with a 73 Sunday.
