Canadian Corey Conners warmed up for his sixth Masters appearance by winning the Texas Open for a second time.
He shot a bogey-free four-under-par 68 to finish on 15 under, one clear of PGA Tour rookie Sam Stevens who had two eagles in a 66 at TPC San Antonio.
Matt Kuchar birded the last three holes as he hit a 69 to finish joint third on 13 under with Sam Ryder, who had a 66.
“I was really solid all day. It was a battle. The conditions were not easy,” said 31-year-old Conners.
“It was definitely a battle but a lot of fun. I can’t believe I got my second win here.”
Conners, who won this title in 2019, began the day one stroke behind leader Patrick Rodgers, who closed with a 73 to finish fifth on 11 under.
He was made to wait for a good 10 minutes on the final fairway after Stevens, playing in the group in front, hit a wayward second shot to the left of the par-five 18th green.
The American chipped to eight feet but missed the birdie putt, meaning Conners needed a par to win and he did just that despite missing the green with his second shot and chunking his chip onto the green.
However, he managed to two-putt for par from 30 feet to win and claim his second PGA Tour title.
