Paul Casey expects after winning his third title in 16 22, he could carry his form into the BMW PGA Championship.
The Englishman made a round of 66 to clinch victory at the Porsche European Open at Hamburg.
Casey birdied the 16th and 17th holes at a dramatic finale to finish 1 shot clear of Matthias Schwab, Bob MacIntyre and Bernd Ritthammer.
It is Casey win on European soil since the KLM Open in 2014 but his attention has already turned to the PGA Championship at Wentworth, which he won at 2009.
“I am really excited, I really like that golf course,” said Casey. “I’ve got two successes around there [he also won the World Match Play Championship at Wentworth in 2006].
“You speak about the European Open and viewing it as a child; Wentworth is where it all started for me”
Casey began the one stroke behind MacIntyre and Ritthammer but pulled evident on the home stretch with all both the fifth and sixth birdies.
“It was fine to make the putts as it counted,” said Casey, who dedicated his 14th European Tour name to the late Gordon Brand Jnr.
“That was the key this week. The ball striking was outstanding. I gave myself that my power and an awful lot of chances, and I was able to maintain this tricky golf course .
“I offered at this event at Walton Heath in 1991 – like a standard-bearer – walking around the golf course. Walton Heath isn’t far from where I grew up as a kid, I never thought I’d be sitting here with the decoration, which is very, very trendy.
“I have been lucky to win at Wentworth, and also to win this one feels really special. We had some fantastic players in the specialty, and the players that are pushed older guys to us right to the finish.
“I feel like fit at 42 as I have ever felt. I have a lot of excitement and an understanding of my golfing game. I enjoy working hard for this and also the pursuit of being as great as I could be.”
