Perez triumphs in Mexico to end seven-year PGA drought


MEXICO CITY: Pat Perez fired five birdies in a four-under par 67 on Sunday (Monday in Manila) to win the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in Mexico, claiming his second US PGA Tour title seven years after his first. The 40-year-old American was playing just his third tournament since returning from an eight-month absence recovering from shoulder surgery. He was two shots in front of overnight leader Gary Woodland, who closed with a 70 for 265. Scotland’s Russell Knox was alone in third after a 66 for 266. Kevin Streelman (65), Chez Reavie (67) and Scott Piercy (70) tied for fourth on 26.
