Joint 2nd enough to win Harrington the Order of Merit

Padraig Harrington has won the European Order of Merit after coming joint second in the Volvo Masters at Valderama, and overtaking Paul Casey, who finished outside the top 20.

VJ Singh won the event with Sergio Garcia coming in second until he dropped a shot to bogie the last hole after ending up in the bunker.

This meant that Harrington's 69 final round was enough for a share of second with Garcia and Luke Donald.

Casey also shot 69 for the day ended in 22nd place after his disastrous opening round.
