Wagner wins PGA ti­tle

Townsville Bulletin - - Sport -

AS Aus­tralian Jar­rod Lyle faded, Amer­i­can John­son Wagner won the Mayakoba Golf Clas­sic for his sec­ond PGA Tour ti­tle, beat­ing Spencer Levin with a par on the first ex­tra hole. Wagner, also the 2008 Hous­ton Open win­ner, closed with a 4-un­der 67 to match Levin at 17-un­der 267 on the Greg Nor­man­designed El Ca­ma­leon course. Lyle was two strokes from the lead en­ter­ing the fi­nal round but could not match the pace on Sun­day, fin­ish­ing with a 70 to tie for fifth – his best fin­ish of the year. ‘‘ I’m just be­side my­self ex­cited,’’ Wagner said.
