COLOGNE, Germany, Sept. 11 (UPI) -- South African Retief Goosen shot a 5-under 67 Sunday to win the German Masters by one stroke over four runners-up.

Goosen, who wound up at 20-under 268, also won last week at the China Masters and five weeks ago at The International.

The final pairing of Nick Dougherty and Henrik Stenson both parred the last hole for closing 68s to share second place with David Lynn (67) and Jose Maria Olazabal (66) at 19-under 269.

David Howell (66) finished alone in sixth place one stroke further back, while Paul Casey (66) and Anthony Wall (70) shared seventh at minus-17.

Goosen entered the round tied for the lead with Stenson, Dougherty and Wall at 15-under. He stumbled with an early double-bogey, but rebounded with four birdies on the front nine. His 18-foot birdie putt at No. 7 gave him a share of the lead with Lynn and Wall at minus-17.
