Report

Viktor Hovland hit a birdie on the final hole to win his second tour title of the year at the Mayakoba Golf Classic.

Tied heading into the 18th, the Norwegian kept his nerve to earn a six-under-par 65 which gave him a 20-under total of 264.

It was enough to edge a one-shot victory over Aaron Wise, who had taken a share of the lead into the clubhouse after his eight-under final round of 63.

American pair Adam Long and Tom Hoge tied for third place after rounds of 67 and 69 respectively.

Overnight leader Emiliano Grillo finished tied for eighth place after his slide continued with a final round score of 72.

Grillo had led by four shots going into Saturday’s third round but saw his overnight lead cut to one shot after a three-under 68.

Scotland’s Russell Knox finished as the best-placed Briton, tied for 23rd place after a final round 71 earned him a 11-under-par total of 273.
