Sam Horsfield shot a final round 4-under 68 to win the Hero Open by one stroke Sunday in the European Tour's latest stop in England. The 23-year-old Englishman clinched his first European Tour title with an 18-under 270 total, holding off second-place Thomas Detry, whose 6-under 66 had briefly given him a share of the lead.
