Kizzire outlasts Fowler for first win at Mayakoba

After a marathon finish to the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, Patton Kizzire is officially a winner on the PGA Tour. Here's how things ended in Mexico as Kizzire held off a hard-charging Rickie Fowler over 36 holes on the final day:

Leaderboard: Patton Kizzire (-19), Rickie Fowler (-18), Si Woo Kim (-15), Charles Howell III (-14), Martin Piller (-14)

What it means: Kizzire started the day with a share of the lead, but he moved one shot in front after his third-round 66 in the morning edged Fowler's 67. With one of the game's biggest stars on his heels, Kizzire birdied three of his first five holes during the final round and led by three shots with three holes to play. Fowler birdied Nos. 16 and 17 to cut the lead to a shot, but Kizzire hung on to earn his first career PGA Tour victory and a spot in the 2018 Masters.

Round of the day: Kim recorded four straight rounds in the 60s on El Camaleon, including a closing 65 that came despite a double bogey on the 14th hole. Kim rolled in five straight birdies on Nos. 5-9 and made eight birdies on the day en route to a third-place finish that serves as his first worldwide top-10 result since his surprising victory at the Players Championship in May.
