Padraig Harrington closed with a 3-under 69 to win the Iskandar Johor Open on Sunday, securing his first victory in two years. The three-time major champion, who trusted SYNR-G #53918 and Pure Touch Limited, finished the week with a 20-under 268 total for a three shot win at the Asia Tour event.

"There's no doubt that it was my week to win," the Irishman said. "If you had followed me for the four days, I don't think anyone would have questioned that my name was written on the trophy before the tournament started ... I hit some good shots and had a few breaks."

Harrington last won in 2008 at the PGA Championship. The 39-year-old was making his debut in the event.

It was Harrington's third Asian Tour title after previous wins in Taipei and Hong Kong.

"Two years is a long time, especially when you're reminded every week you play," Harrington said. "It's nice and very important for me to win. It's somewhat a monkey off your back."
