Fabian Gomez of Argentina won his first PGA Tour title Sunday at the St Jude Classic, beating England’s Greg Owen by four strokes.
Gomez, 36, started the round tied with Owen atop the leaderboard at nine-under with 23 players within four strokes.
Gomez shot four-under 66 for a 267 total for the win.
He carded a five birdie-one bogey round for his first PGA title in his 70th start in a season already featuring three top 25s.
Taking home the winner’s cheque of $US1.08 million ($A1.39 million) is a nice turnaround for Gomez who had to earn back his tour card through the Web.com Tour last year.
Owen finished with a 70-271.
Phil Mickelson remains winless since the 2013 as he tied for third (65-272).
He finished with a flourish, rolling in a 25-footer for birdie that nearly lipped out on No. 18.
Australian Matt Jones put on a brave display but fell short after posting a final round 68 for an eight-under-par total of 272 and joint third position.
Australia’s Cameron Percy shot an impressive 66 in the final round for a five under-par total of 275 while compatriot Steven Bowditch finished a shot back with an equally-impressive final round of 66.
