“The first two days I think it was a different tournament for me. Obviously I played my best golf on Thursday and Friday. Obviously I knew that the weekend was going to be hard, it was going to be a battle. I knew I had to be fighting myself a lot during those two days.”

The Chilean produced an eagle at the 11th, a birdie and three bogeys for a 71 to close with a 19-under, 265 total and win his second PGA Tour title. He is the tournament’s first wire-to-wire winner since Charlie Sifford in 1969.

“It’s the toughest tournament I think during the year. It’s got the best field, the best players are here and that proves myself that I can be competing with the top guys, I can be up there in the world ranking.

“I think it’s going to give me a lot of confidence for what is coming next. I think at the beginning of the year, just started playing great golf at Torrey. Coming this week I was feeling really confident about my game and I was able to handle it during the week.”

American Collin Morikawa signed for a 65 to finish in a tie for second place at 17-under alongside compatriot Cameron Young, in his twelfth start on Tour, who carded a 70.

“Game felt really good coming into the week especially after the couple of not changes but fixes and back to normal, and putting obviously was great,” said Morikawa. “You know, I just had to put together a few better rounds and make a few less mistakes, but overall I’m happy with the way things kind of played out.”

Australian Adam Scott closed with a 66 for a share of fourth place at 14-under alongside Norwegian Viktor Hovland who carded a 70.
