Patton Kizzire held on to win the OHL Classic at Mayakoba on Sunday, relegating fellow American Rickie Fowler to another runner-up finish on the PGA Tour.

A tap-in par at the final hole gave Kizzire his first victory on tour, one stroke ahead of Fowler and four in front of South Korean Kim Si-woo at El Camaleon Golf Club in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.

Kizzire carded 67 to finish at 19-under-par 265.

Fowler, in his first start of the 2017-18 season, birdied the 16th and 17th holes to put ­pressure on Kizzire but left a long birdie putt at the last short.
