Leading the standings after three rounds, Norway’s Viktor Hovland stayed the course on the final lap of the World Wide Technology Championship to secure his third victory on the PGA Tour on Sunday in Riviera Maya, Mexico.
He did six birdies and committed two bogeys, which allowed him to hand over a card of 67 (-4). He thus completed the competition with a cumulative score of 263 (-23).
He beat his closest pursuer, the Mexican Carlos Ortiz, by four strikes. American Justin Thomas completed the top 3 with a total of 266 strokes (-18).
Returning to Hovland, the 24-year-old golfer previously won the Puerto Rico Open in February and the Mayakoba Classic in December of the same year. Last June, he also offered a victory on the European circuit by triumphing in the BMW Championship.
The top Canadian during this Mexican event was Nick Taylor. The 33-year-old Manitoban finished the fourth round with a performance of 71 (N). He ended his tournament with a cumulative score of 274 (-10) and tied with six other golfers for 33rd place.
Adam Svensson and Adam Hadwin were the other Maple Leaf representatives vying for the weekend rounds. The two men respectively concluded the competition in the 45th and 56th ranks of the general classification.
