Lee Slattery claims his first European Tour victory at the 183rd attempt.

Englishman Lee Slattery has claimed his first European Tour title by winning the Madrid Masters by one stroke.

The 33-year-old, who led overnight, was in a comfortable position as he prepared to play the final hole with a three-shot lead.

However, he struggled over the finish line after carding a double-bogey seven at the 18th when he shots into the sand and water hazards.

Italian Lorenzo Gagli had the chance to level with Slattery, but he missed a 30-foot birdie putt on the 18th.

Slattery's maiden victory has come in his 183rd event.
