PLAYA DEL CARMEN // Mark Wilson carded a two-under-par 68 in the final round of the Mayakoba Golf Classic to claim his second PGA Tour title. Entering the day tied with a one-shot lead, Wilson finished at 13-under 267, two strokes ahead of JJ Henry. Kevin Streelman climbed up to third with a 64 and joined Heath Slocum (67) at 10-under 270. Bo Van Pelt had a rough day and ended up tied for 28th at two under. Van Pelt entered the day tied for the lead with Wilson but he stumbled to a 79 to finish well back.

Wilson birdied the second and the third and he closed the front nine with his third birdie of the day. After adding his final birdie of the day at the 12th, Wilson had a pair of bogeys on his final six holes, dropping shots at the 14th and 16th. "The golf course played different today," Wilson said. "The rest of the week we had east-southeast winds. Today we had northwest winds." * PA Sport
