Canete wins by 2 in Argentina

Ariel Canete posted a pair of 4- under 67s on Sunday to come from behind and win the Olivos Golf Classic.

Canete finished at 9-under-par 275. This was his second win on the Latinoamerica Tour and seventh top-10 finish in the tour's first year.

The Argentine birdied the first, but gave that stroke back when he bogeyed the fourth. Canete carded four birdies between the seventh and 13th to move to minus-9 at Olivos Golf Club.

Canete stumbled to a bogey on the 15th, but atoned for that mistake with a birdie at the par-5 18th to seal the win in style.

Clodomiro Carranza (65) and Jose Coceres (68) shared second at minus-7. Fabian Gomez (70) ended alone in fourth at 6-under 278, while Alex Ching stumbled to a 73 in the final round to grab fifth at minus-5.

The first round had a weather delay that pushed action back. The final 36 holes were played on Sunday.
