Chesson Hadley wins Puerto Rico Open

RIO GRANDE, Puerto Rico (AP) — Chesson Hadley won the Puerto Rico Open on Sunday for his first PGA Tour victory, holding off Danny Lee by two strokes.

Making his 13th PGA Tour start, the 26-year-old Hadley birdied the final two holes at Trump International for a 5-under 67. He's the first rookie winner since Jordan Spieth in July in the John Deere Classic.

Hadley finished at 21-under 267 and earned $630,000.

Lee birdied three of the last four holes for a 68. Hadley won twice last year on the Web.com Tour, taking the Rex Hospital Open in his hometown of Raleigh, N.C., and the season-ending Web.com Tour Championship. In Raleigh, the former Georgia Tech player began the final round five strokes behind Lee and closed with a 64 for a two-stroke victory.
