VILAMOURA, Portugal (AP) - David Lynn shot an 8-under 63 Sunday to rally from six shots back and win the Portugal Masters, ending a nine-year wait for his second European Tour title.

Lynn was tied for 16th entering the fourth round, six shots behind leader Paul Waring. He started with two birdies and added three more on his last five holes at the Oceanico Victoria course for an 18-under total of 266.

The Englishman, who turns 40 next Sunday, then watched as Justin Walters of South Africa almost caught him with four straight birdies before falling one stroke short with a par on the 18th hole.

Lynn said he was inspired by Scott Jamieson's performance on Saturday when he matched a European Tour record of 60.

``Today was just a case of, I've got to go out there and make as many birdies as I can,'' Lynn said. ``I must admit I was thinking of Scott Jamieson's 60. If I could do something like that, who knows? The wind was up quite a bit today, so 8 under is a really good score.''

Waring had a two-stroke lead after the third round, but a double bogey on the 16th knocked him out of contention.

Waring was joined by Stephen Gallacher and Bernd Wiesberger in a tie for third place, two shots back. Hennie Otto and Jamie Donaldson were another stroke behind.

Lynn's first European Tour win came at the 2004 KLM Open.
