England’s Matt Wallace won his first PGA Tour title in his 80th start with a tournament record 269  in the Corales Puntacana Championship.

Wallace carded a final round of 66 in the Dominican Republic to finish on 19 under par.

The 32-year-old Londoner, who finished seventh in the Valspar Championship last week, got off to a poor start with a bogey on the second, but responded superbly with birdies on the third, fourth and seventh.

Wallace then made four birdies in a row from the 13th to move into a two-shot lead before Hojgaard closed the gap with a birdie on the par-three 17th, but the 22-year-old was unable to pick up another shot on the last to force a play-off.

54-hole co-leaders Nicolai Højgaard  and Sam Stevens earned career-best finishes coming in second and third respectively.

Tyler Duncan earned his second top-three finish of the season tying for third place at 17-under
