Landry grabs 1st win in Colombia

Cartagena, Colombia ( - Andrew Landry closed with a 3-under 69 on Sunday to win the Cartagena de Indias at Karibana Championship by five strokes.

Landry finished at 11-under-par 277. This was his first Tour title.

"It was an awesome day. I don't even know how to explain it. There's no explanation," Landry said. "Putts went in. I hit the ball well. I stuck to my routine. I did everything great."

Miguel Angel Carballo, who shared the third-round lead with Landry and Luke List, stumbled to a 2-over 74. Carballo shared second place with Steve Allan (71) at minus-6.

List faltered to a 4-over 76 and dropped into a tie for fourth at 4-under-par 284. He was joined there by Kevin Tway (73), Patton Kizzire (75) and John Mallinger (73).

The third round was completed earlier Sunday after gusting winds halted play on both Friday and Saturday.

Landry got off to a quick start as he birdied the second and third to move two clear of Carballo. Landry then parred four in a row from the fourth.

He moved to 11-under thanks to a birdie on the par-5 eighth. Landry gave that stroke right back as he bogeyed the ninth. He made the turn with a 1-stroke lead over Carballo.

Landry maintained his lead throughout the back side as he parred the first eight holes of the inward nine. He closed with a birdie at the last, then had to wait an hour as the final groups finished. When no one caught Landry, the title was his.

"I putted unbelievably well today. There were probably a few putts that I hit that wouldn't normally go in, but they did. The hardest thing to do in the wind is putting because the club is getting blown all over the place," Landry stated. "You really have to try and just focus and 'zone out' the wind."

Carballo started with seven pars in a row. Like Landry, Carballo birdied the eighth, but bogeyed the ninth.

The Argentine inched within one of Landry's lead as he birdied the 10th. Carballo faltered to a bogey on the 11th. He fell further off the lead as he bogeyed 13 and 14. Carballo parred the last four holes to share second place.

Allan had a pair of birdies and a birdie on the front nine. He also birdied 10, but bogeyed 11. Allan got to 7-under with a birdie at par-5 13th. However, he faltered to a bogey at the 15th before closing with three pars.

NOTES: Landry was making just his sixth career start on the Tour ... He earned $126,000 for the victory ... Landry had just four bogeys all week, while the next best player (Jason Allred) in the field had eight over-par holes ... There were 11 bogey-free rounds for the week, but none came in the final round ... The tour heads to Brazil next week for the Brasil Champions, where Jon Curran won last year with a tournament-record score of 25-under 269.
