Gomez sunk a 30-foot putt on the final hole for a four-under 66 and a four-shot victory over Englishman Owen Greg Owen, who began the final round tied with Gomez, but could only manage an even-par 70.

Gomez fell behind Owen by two shots after seven holes, but pulled even with Owen before at the ninth.

A seven-foot birdie putt at the par-3 11th put Gomez up for good and he finished at 13-under 267.

Phil Mickelson’s final round 65 put him in a five-way tie for third at eight-under.
