Archer wins Challenge Tour event in Colombia

Phillip Archer closed with a two- under 70 on Sunday to win the Pacific Rubiales Colombia Classic by one shot.

Archer, who won for the third time on the Challenge Tour, finished at eight- under-par 280.

He birdied the last for a one-stroke win over Chris Lloyd (67) and Morten Orum Madsen (70).

Third-round leader Nick Dougherty stumbled to a one-over 73. The three-time European Tour winner shared fourth place at six-under-par 282 with Chris Hanson (71) and Matt Haines (71).

Archer had birdies on the second and seventh to move to eight-under. However, he stumbled to a bogey at the eighth. Archer birdied the 11th for the fourth straight round, but he gave that shot back when he bogeyed the 13th.

The 39-year-old rolled in a four-foot birdie putt at the last to earn the title.
