Etulain wins by 1 in Peru

Lima, Peru ( - Julian Etulain carded a 2-under 70 on Sunday to claim a 1-stroke victory at the Peru Open.

Etulain earned his first career victory on the PGA Tour Latinoamerica at 13- under-par 275.

The Argentine entered the final round with a 1-stroke lead, but an up-and-down front nine that included three bogeys and a pair of birdies saw him drop out of the top spot.

He was able to right himself around the turn, however, as he followed a birdie at the 11th with three straight gains from the 14th to reclaim the lead. He dropped a shot at the 17th, but parred the last to hang on for the win.

Ryan Blaum (68) and Bronson Burgoon (69) shared second at 12-under, while Timothy O'Neal (67) captured fourth at minus-11.

Santiago Russi (68) and Sebastian Saavedra (71) tied for fifth at 10-under 278.
