OAKVILLE, Ontario — Jhonattan Vegas birdied his way off Glen Abbey and waited to see if anyone could catch him. No one could.

Vegas rallied to win the Canadian Open on Sunday for his second PGA Tour title, birdieing the final three holes for an 8-under 64 and one-stroke victory.

The 29-year-old Venezuelan Olympic player began the day five strokes behind leader Brandt Snedeker and four behind U.S. Open champion Dustin Johnson and Canadian amateur Jared du Toit. Last week in Alabama in the event opposite the British Open, Vegas shot a course-record 61 in the second round and tied for fourth.

“That’s the fortunate breaks that sometimes you need to be a champion on the PGA Tour,” Vegas said. “It’s a great feeling. I mean, last week, I had a six-shot lead going into the weekend and lost by three. I was five back starting today and won by one. It’s a crazy sport. You’ve just got to keep your head down and play hard.”

Vegas had five straight birdies on Nos. 2-6, bogeyed the par-4 eighth and also birdied the par-5 13th. He finished at 12-under 276.

Johnson, Jon Rahm and Martin Laird tied for second.

LPGA: Cristie Kerr held on for a 3-and-2 victory over Melissa Reid to give the United States the UL International Crown, in Gurnee, Illinois.

Stacy Lewis and Gerina Piller each closed out wins for the U.S. before Reid missed a birdie putt on 16, handing the decisive victory to Kerr.

The Americans finished the four-day event with 13 points – one more than South Korea and two better than England and Taiwan.

CHAMPIONS TOUR: Paul Broadhurst won the Senior British Open in Carnoustie, Scotland, for his first major title, closing with a 4-under 68 for a two-stroke victory over Scott McCarron.
