RIO GRANDE, Puerto Rico (AP) - Scott Brown made birdie on the 18th hole Sunday to go from a one-shot deficit to a one-shot victory in the Puerto Rico Open for his first PGA Tour title.

Brown closed with a 2-under 70. He earned a two-year exemption on tour and a spot in the PGA Championship this summer.

Fabian Gomez of Argentina had a one-shot lead until he went over the green and into a bunker on his third shot, blasted out to 15 feet and missed the par putt. He closed with a 71 and tied for second with Jordan Spieth. The 19-year-old from Texas had a 67.

Former U.S. Amateur champion Peter Uihlein tied for sixth, giving him a spot in the Tampa Bay Classic next week.

Brown finished at 20-under 268 and earned $630,000.
