Eugene Wong holed out from the fairway for eagle on the 18th hole Sunday to earn a dramatic victory at the Canadian Tour Championship.

Wong, a third-round co-leader, finished with a 4-under 67 and won by just a stroke over Joe Panzeri, who also had a 67 on Sunday. The difference was, Panzeri's 67 didn't include the hole-out eagle.

Wong finished at 14-under 270 at Scarborough Golf & Country Club.

Sunday's victory was his first in just his third start on the Canadian Tour.

Cody Slover came in third at 10-under par after a 3-under 68 on Sunday.

Wong opened his final round with an eagle and closed with one. In between, he made a bogey at the fifth and a birdie at 16, but he was a stroke behind Panzeri at the 18th.

Panzeri was in the clubhouse at 13-under par. He collected seven birdies and three bogeys in his final round, then had to watch Wong hole his approach at the last.

Trey Denton, who shared the third-round lead with Wong, struggled to a 1-over 72 and tied for fourth place with Carlos Sainz, Jr. (68), Matt Daniel (68) and Brian Unk (70). The group finished at 9-under 275.
