CARTAGENA, Colombia – Andrew Landry won the Karibana Championship by five strokes Sunday at TPC Cartagena for his first Tour title.

The 27-year-old former University of Arkansas player shot a 5-under 67 in the completion of the wind-delayed third round and closed with a 69 to finish at 11-under 277. He earned $126,000.

“It was an awesome day,” Landry said. “I don’t even know how to explain it. There’s no explanation. Putts went in. I hit the ball well. I stuck to my routine. I did everything great.”

He won in his sixth start on the tour.

“I knew a lot of pars would do it,” Landry said. “It was one of those days when you’re going to struggle, but you do what you can to get the ball in the hole and let everyone make the mistakes. … When you’re playing in wind like this, nobody is going to shoot lights out. It’s just not possible. It’s just too hard.”

Australia’s Steve Allan and Argentina’s Miguel Angel Carballo tied for second. Allan finished with rounds of 72 and 71, and Carballo shot 73-74.

Luke List, Kevin Tway, Patton Kizzire and John Mallinger tied for fourth at 4 under.

Canada’s Brad Fritsch had a colourful round en route to a final-round 83, which left him tied for 42nd. He carded 8 bogeys, 2 bogeys and a birdie Sunday.
